Dream Work Space Inspiration – 7 Levels of Room Decor (Part 2)

Remember two months ago when we wrote Part 1 of Dream Room Inspiration? That was about memories and making our bedroom even cozier.

Today, let’s talk about work spaces and desks, basically the area where we study, work, read, draw, get inspired… or make magic happen!

Hence, it is very important to keep it organised, inspiring, or simply conducive for working.

1. Minimalist

First, it should have everything you need. Ample space, sockets, enough light… that’s a good enough work space.

2. Neat

But… not everyone is super tidy with minimal items on the desk. There may be stationery, tools, books, etc. Here are some ideas for table organisation that looks really neat too! (in all possible senses hehe)

3. Productive/ Functional

Then, you could include things that make you more productive. It could be some speakers for your music, a cork board or whiteboard (or any board) for your notes and inspiration, a calendar to keep track of everything, and anything else that keeps you motivated or on task.

4. Motivating/ Aesthetically-pleasing

For motivation and (sometimes) aesthetics, add some motivational quotes that is either hand written or printed out! I set one as my phone wallpaper when I was preparing for major examinations some years back and it really kept me going!

5. Frames

If you prefer something more cozy you could just put some pictures of your family and friends (or whoever/whatever you like) into frames and hang them up!

If you are a creative, drawings (your masterpieces!) would be cool! If not, putting up some artwork or graphic designs (which you can easily find online, just as we showed you in a previous article) would be pretty nice as well.

6. A little bit of green

Oh yeah, and adding a plant or two in the office adds that little touch of green and makes the space looks fresher and livelier too!

(it all depends how many plants you want surrounding you… you could go from one all the way to… a greenhouse)

7. Get creative!

Feeling inspired yet?

If you have lots and lots of creative juices flowing, or simply like something more unique, you could do anything you want to incorporate everything you need!

You could combine all of the ideas above to really make it yours! As Laura Vitale from Laura in the Kitchen says, “The world is your pickle, my friend.”

Below are some really cool ideas we saw and really love!
