My Workspace

I was invited by WeWork to share my working environment so today I am doing just that. WeWork build beautiful, shared office spaces. They promote collaboration, community and participation, something that I admire.

Although I work alone in my small flat I definitely enjoy the creative community in London. Lots of my friends are designers too and that combined with social networking sites means I have really enjoyed meeting and working with many people. Without twitter I would have never been lucky enough to be invited to have a pop up shop in West Elm for example. If you're a creative and you're finding that you're feeling a bit secluded try to network online and arrange creative meet-ups, its so important to share stories and collaborate with other self employed folk.

However you like working I hope you enjoy this little insight into my small desk space and if you're interested in a co-working space check WeWork out, they have spaces all over the globe! 





My work area is in a corner of our living room, I live in a small flat so I had to squeeze myself in! I have a large Mid-Century cabinet which holds all my craft supplies for my DIY magazine articles (I also work as a freelance lifestyle writer just in case you didn't know) it also holds some of my sewing supplies and camera equipment. I love Midcentury furniture as it can hide so much stuff! My desk is a 1950's formica kitchen table that sits right next to the cabinet. I really need to upgrade my desk and chair but for now they'll do. I have a cupboard next to my desk, the only one in the flat - modern flats are rubbish for built in storage! I keep my rolled up paper and some of my homeware stock in there. The side of the cupboard makes for a great place to stick up inspirational postcards and my quote banner that I made.


Some items that I would love to have for my little office space would be some Kate Spade accessories like this very glam gold stapler and journal. Like most of us I really admire Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co and her new bags are a must have to keep organised. As a Scandiophile I adore Hay and these set squares would be so useful for my craft projects and when I need to cut fabric for my homeware brand. Good pens are mandatory, I have lots but these inexpensive ones from Livework are my favourites. And of course you should keep those hard working hands cared for, my top skincare brand is Kiehl's.

I hope you enjoyed a look at my work area. Oh and in case you didn't see I am currently holding a giveaway where you can win a collection of my products worth over £65. See my pervious post to enter or click here.  The Giveaway is now closed.

  2. Your desk is the dogs bollocks. I have a larger version of that table as my kitchen/dining table (my bf hates it, I absolutely adore it) and it's one of those pieces that looks cool in every environment. I actually didn't realise they did mini ones without flaps, so I'm pretty jealous! Your space looks amazing.

    1. Haha thanks so much! I think it must have been made for really teeny 1950's kitchen! Its a bit beaten up but I still like it. I'm planning on building my own desk one day once we have a little more space!

  5. Aah I'm desperate for my own workspace!! I had a studio upstairs — but when the twins arrived it turned into their nursery so now my mac is in the dining room and the rest of my paraphernalia squirrelled all over the house!! Oh for a garden office!! ;) It's in the pipeline but I'm SO impatient!! :)

    Thanks so much for linking up with #HomeEtc Nancy — great that you found us — hope to see you again next week! x
