I ended up with an office that I don't just not mind - I absolutely love it. Here it is:
|This is my happy place.|
So here's what I didn't like:
1. I'm OCD and I hate paper. I love paper in a feel-that-thick-cardstock-letterpress-makes-me-palpitate way. But I hate piles of it. I hate wasting it. So having a stack of it on my desk makes me go to a dark place.
2. I love postcards, invitations, etc, but I don't want them in a stack on my desk. I want them displayed adorably. So I did what all super intelligent decorating geniuses with a budget do and I went to Ikea.
3. I do not love wasted space. See that big white area between the bookshelves, behind my desk? No good. There had to be a use for it. There has to or the universe will implode. (Yes, there is a lot wrong with me).
I bought the Spontan magazine rack and the Dignitet and Deka system of curtain rail and clips.
So after some drilling into sheetrock and a limited amount of swearing, here's where we ended up!
