While living at home post-college, I was a little spoiled when it came to my bedroom. Sure, I didn’t love the pink walls and carpet from my childhood, but I did have enough room to have a functioning vanity to do my makeup, as well as a desk. Although working away on my laptop on the couch while watching TV is fun and all, sometimes it’s easier to get stuff done at a desk. A lot of my freelance writing or blog work (such as graphic designs) are easier to do with a keyboard and a mouse. Plus the quiet room didn’t hurt either.
Now that I’m moving out on my own, my boyfriend and I both decided we wanted to try to make a small office space in our apartment. We both work from home from time-to-time and I do a lot of blogging and freelance writing, so a desk is a must. Our soon-to-be living room is rather large for an apartment, so we will be fitting in a small desk in the corner and creating our own mini “office space”. While the exact details aren’t set up yet, I’ve been browsing Pinterest for some inspiration. I loved the clean, white desk in the photo above. The bold painting and cute pillows add some color, while the file cabinet would certainly help us organize our bills, paperwork, and medical records.
