I love the soft pastel pink wall colour and while I wouldn’t normally consider a black desk I think it works really well here. I love the butterfly mobile and the colour swatches on the wall too. And long time readers know that I’m particularly fond of bees, so the colourful hive art on the wall really struck a chord with me!
Black and White
While this desk doesn’t have a dominant colour, I love how having black and white can make one vibrant colour stand out amongst the crowd. This actually makes it really easy to change the main colour of your workspace regularly by just swapping in a new colourful picture or postcard. Food for thought! Having the base of black and white pictures is the key here, I’m quite keen on having some style icons such as Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn on the wall for inspiration – I’ve already found a few nice big canvas prints of them at Baytree Interiors
in their canvas wall art section.
Okay, so I wasn’t going to feature yellow, but I just had to show this one off! The chair is so striking I just love it. So while this desk doesn’t have any shelves which I’m very keen on, I do like the simplicity of the three pictures on the wall. The pink skull is a nice touch too, it seems like something Damien Hirst might have on his desk if he were a blogger!
! Seemingly quite a boring colour, but for this desk space it really works as a neutral background, allowing more dominant colours to come to the forefront. I love the sunflowers and the lips artwork. I already have a pinboard, so that’s definitely something I’ll include.
I thought I’d finish with something quite different, a dusty blue back wall covered with useful hooks and hangers. Sometimes I have to use things like tape, blutac and other nicknacks for my photos, so having them all organised and to hand could be very useful. I also love the Eames-style chair in this photo and the tidy storage up high. More resourceful than creative, but great for someone who needs the storage!
Which desk do you like the best? Let me know in the comments section below, and if you want to share a photo of your current workspace then I’d really love to see it!
