May is a very busy month for me, with lots of design shows, meetings and the dreaded flat hunting. For my monthly ‘Styling the seasons’ post I wanted to show my make shift desk area in the corner of my living room. I’m working at the dining table while the rest of my flat is in utter chaos from prepping to pack.
In contrast with my chaotic schedule and mess in the home I’ve created a corner of organised calm.
I made this hanging poster roll with leather string and wooden beads, perfect for my to note down my to do list and ideas. The beads just make it look pretty. I was inspired to make this when I saw this #TheEverydaySpruce DIY wall planner on the fab blog Growing Spaces. As this desk area is temporary I thought that a simple hanging wall planner would be best for me. I love it!
My diary is jam packed! I’m really trying to avoid the stress so there’s careful planning involved. The wall planner and diary are so important. Plus it helps if they look pretty! I really can’t concentrate with clutter, having a clean and minimal workspace helps clear my mind ready to face this mad month.
To keep my temporary desk clutter free I’ve put any unnecessary items in my zinc trunk (from Made.com a few years ago). I always keep a few reference books close by, along with my diary, a note pad and laptop. Adding some plants and a something a little quirky can help make a workspace a bit more interesting.
Hansel is shattered, he’s been busy protesting the impending move by chewing up all of my boxes and spitting them out on the floor! Thanks Hansel, NOT helpful, you’d never tell by looking at this innocent pic, ha!
Styling the seasons is a collaborative project by bloggers Katy from Apartment Apothecary and Charlotte from Lotts & Lots. Where they ask for bloggers like me to share a surface or corner of our home and style it to represent what that month means to us. As you can see, this month I’m craving calm! I wonder what next month will bring?……
