I think the nature of this season is to slow down and prepare to be inside. What a wonderful time to make your home a place where you can relax and enjoy quiet time alone, with family, and/or with pets.
I recently updated my workspace. My desk was too small and I had things in drawers that no longer served a purpose. Ikea is a wonderful and inexpensive place to find minimal and efficient furniture items to help you store your belongings. I’m tickled pink that I finally found my new desk and chair and I love them both. I downsized from 4 drawers that didn’t open and close efficiently to 2 drawers that function with ease.
I sold my old desk and a few other items online to compensate for my new purchases and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE sitting at my new desk. It has brought new inspiration and vision for my business, writing projects, and painting hobby.
If you’re feeling stagnant in any space in your home, you don’t necessarily need to buy anything new. You can repurpose old furniture with paint, knobs, contact paper, etc. It will re-enliven your creativity and overall sense of joy in your space. Pinterest is a wonderful website to get your creative juices flowing. Just type in “home office inspiration” or “home office organization” and see what pops up.
Good luck and I’d love for you to submit your before and after photos to my email firstname.lastname@example.org
