Welcome to my office. As I’ve shared before, one of the driving forces behind living a more minimalistic lifestyle was to be able to have more time to do free lance and pro bono graphic design.
I spend at least a few hours in my office each day and wanted it to be a place that was distraction free and kid friendly.
We created the desk for the kids by cutting a table in half and mounting it to the wall. And the pictures on the shelves make me smile :) The basket holds paper and crayons for the girls.
We put the other half of the table in the closet to hold my printer and sewing machine.
And I had learned a time management tip that has always stuck with me: keep your desk clear except for what you are currently working on and don’t store stuff on your desk. The file holder behind my desk allows me to do just this (from Ikea…in fact my desk, chair, the shelves and kid’s chairs, all from Ikea :).
And, it is true, I will work for coffee…
