I had a desk cleaning frenzy that other day which turned into full blown desk makeover. Pieces of calligraphy paper were literally falling out the back of the drawers so I knew it was time for a major clear out.

So a bag of recycled paper, a packet of dust wipes and a few sticky hooks later, my desk was looking nice and refreshed.

The desk is quite slim but it’s okay if you don’t plan on spending all day working on it. We bought it to fit a tight space in our last apartment and admittedly, it was quite a snug fit for our iMac which is why we haven’t set it up here.  It is however perfectly fine to fit a laptop and for small arty projects.

Most places in the UK have radiators sticking out of the walls everywhere so this limits your wall space. I’ve happily used the radiator as an extra shelf and had everything nesting on it for the last few months.  Now that’s it’s cooler, we want to turn on the heaters so I’ve had to move the plastic items off the radiator.

I used little tiny clear sticky hooks to mount this wire grid. It’s basically a plastic coated steel grid that bought it from Homebase (like Bunnings in Australia) and cut in half with some wire cutters. I love hanging up magazine clippings, prints, polaroids and anything else that is currently inspiring me.

I gave my Filofax diary a while back but I still use this Weekly Organiser to write down my ‘must do’ lists for the week. It’s handy having it hanging up so I don’t forget what I need to do!

I bought this lovely vase the other day from Habitat. It’s a gorgeous tone of pale blue and which pops against my relatively monochrome desk space.

How beautiful are these tulips by the way? I already know that I’m going to have a lot of tulips floating around the house this winter. Apparently these beauties are called Flaming Flags and I adore the purple tones feathered on the white petals.

I also got new Pomegranate & Leather candle which has been designed by my talented friend Martyn from Martyn White Designs. You can smell this beauty as soon as you walk in the room which to me, is a sign of a good candle!

If you prefer softer scents then he also created a Seasalt and Wood drift version which I’m sure is equally divine!
