I have long to join in with Styling the Seasons but lacking confidence in either my style or photography I have yet to dive into such a lovely, monthly project. Well, 2016 is a new year and the year I am diving in to numerous things that I am passionate about and telling my lack of self confidence to take a hike. I love styling corners of my house with various home accessories, flowers and plants to make it a bright, inspiring place to be. You will never see my shelves look the same here as things are constantly on rotation and moving about the house to my husband’s dismay. To say I absolutely love change is an understatement.
For my first month of Styling the Seasons for January, it is all about a space for planning, creativity, new journals, and making those new year’s goals both for personal and business gains. I got these two amazing little notebooks for birthday presents this boxing day and they have been the perfect accessories to my new little desk corner of our living room. The pink “I heart pretty things” is a jumbo lined notebook for my daily tasks and my blogger journal has already proven it’s worth from keeping me up to date with my social media and scheduling out my blog posts. But most importantly they look amazing on my new white desk. I have added a little bamboo plant (real) to give that fresh nature feel to it. I am completely in love with these black square paper clips I picked up at ikea on my last visit. I haven’t had a work space before so it’s nice that I have somewhere to put my laptop down, feel inspired and move numerous accessories on and off my desk, all week. I hope this is the year I work harder but less, and live more simple with a decluttered space. No more piling work up in a corner, it now has a home to go to.
I have styled my desk with lots of lovely mini plants and vases for fresh flowers to keep a clean look. I have a grey and white marbled laptop cover that I truly adore now. My two new favorite notebooks that keep me on task and organized sit next to it. I don’t like a lot of things on my desk but about half way through the week it started piling up and it’s always relaxing each weekend to work my way through it all to start the next week fresh again.
At the moment this little space is my sanctuary where I sit hours and hours everyday. Someday I dream of an actual office for all my food props, photography stuff, and backdrops. A place I can set up and keep up and play to my hearts content, being creative.
