I am so excited for today’s blog post and couldn’t wait to share it with you all! Last week I worked with the super talented Supal from chevrons and éclairs to capture some photos of my shared workspace.
It is sometimes hard sharing an office with a boy because that limits how girly the decor can get. I can’t add confetti and glitter everywhere because that is not what my guy is into. He prefers Iron Man inspired decor and lots of Iron Man artwork. So little by little we made this space work for us. It merges all the things that we both love – I have lots of Disney pieces and he has lots of Iron Man.
(Side Note: At the beginning of the year we but this jar in between our desk. We add little notes about something special that happens or just something that made us feel good. That way when the year ends we get to go back and see all the little things that we normally forget about. We don’t tell each other what we put in the jar, it will be a little surprise for the end of the year.)
You can see what things are mine and what is his – and that’s what I love about it. We found a way to merge it all together and I just love how it looks.
Of course the office is usually a little messier (we have 2 extra monitor and lots of random scraps of paper that I leave everywhere) but I wanted to show you the clean side of it all. And I am excited to say that it’s still just as clean a week later. I feel that these photos will always motivate me to keep my desk nice and tidy. At least most of the times. ;)
Setting up this workspace has definitely been an ongoing project for us because I spend many many many hours in here and so does N. So it has to be a place that inspires us and that we enjoy being in.
We work all random hours – sometimes you can find us in here at midnight typing away or on a Sunday night. So I wanted to make sure the room would be a place that we actually want to be in. And after so many years of sitting in a sad little cubicle – I wanted to make sure this room would reflect the things we love.
It is our room for work, crafting, random projects, and even to just relax in. The decor constantly changes to keep things fresh and exciting – but I do love how it all looks at this point and hope it always evolves with us.
