Some Office Updates

My office has always doubled up as a stock room, and for that exact reason, keeping it tidy has always been a bit of an issue. I've got an IKEA shelving unit in there, a vintage shelving set, and three clothes rails, as well as a few storage boxes thrown in too, so you can imagine it ends up looking a bit of a jumble unless I make a conscious effort to really keep it tidy. Since Ada has been born I work in my office a lot more than I used to, as I find I can get my work done so much quicker than downstairs, so I've added a few more bits to my workspace to make it a really enjoyable space to work in.

The first thing that I was really desperate for was a new chair; I had been using the Made Wilton chair but that was donated to Ada's nursery, so I was back to using the cheap Ikea chair I bought ages ago. It's a perfectly good chair for ten minutes, but after that it causes serious bum and back pain, so I got the Made Lex Office Chair as a replacement. It's not only so much more comfortable but it looks so much better in there too. 

Ada's schedule is a bit all over the place at the moment; sometimes she'll head back off to sleep easily in the early hours of the morning, meaning at about 6.30 I can get up and start doing my work. Some days though, are a little harder and I end up working late into the evening when she's down in her cot snoozing away. So, I needed a lamp for my desk rather than working under the bright main light, and decided to have a little peruse on John Lewis. I loved the look of the Blair Marble Table Lamp but being the pennypincher I am, decided to have a look on Ebay and managed to find one for well under half the price, score! I also finally got Kane doing some DIY and he popped up some shelves for me which are a functional and pretty addition.

What do you think of my new buys?


  1. Love this! There's not too much going on and all the neutral colours work so well. The little pin board is so cute, too!

  3. I'm super jealous of your work space (granted, I'm living in uni halls so I can't expect too much, but still)! That chair is absolutely gorgeous.
