Now that the majority of us are working from home 100% of the time, having a workstation that inspires you is more important than ever.
I recently moved into a new house and have been slowly piecing together my new office. Here's what I have so far.
Here is my office so far. My office is open to our front hallway and the entrance of my house so I wanted something both aesthetically pleasing and functional for my everyday work.
This is definitely still a work in progress - I'll post update pictures once I get everything finished. I'm thinking of putting a credenza on the left side of my office so I can have some functional storage.
I also really like having a TV on in the background while I work so I'm thinking of splurging on a Frame TV for above the credenza. This way I can have background noise while I work but it also doesn't look like a TV. I also would like to add some hanging planters to add some more greenery to my space.
As far as my actual desk goes, I have my work-issued MacBook Pro on a Rain Design stand. I mainly use my laptop as a screen for Slack and my email but I like that the stand keeps it at eye level.
My monitor was issued by my work and is a Dell UltraSharp 25". I like that the monitor can be adjusted up or down but I'd eventually like to get a monitor arm to free up some space on my desk.
Even before Covid my team was remote so video calls are a big part of my day-to-day work. My webcam is the LogiTech HD Pro C920 and my favorite part about it is that is has a privacy cover. I also have a Lume Cube on an adjustable tripod to provide some additional light on video calls.
My husband and I built my mechanical keyboard and I am obsessed! He's really big into mechanical keyboard and truthfully is the only reason I have one but I don't think I could go without it now. My keyboard case is a KBD67 with Zeal 62g Zilent switches and Tai Hao Baby Miami keycaps (which are unfortunately not sold anymore).
I also have my personal laptop on my desk which is a 2014 MacBook Pro. I don't use this often and have been debating about selling it and getting an iPad instead.
You probably noticed the cup with a million pens on my desk. I recently picked up bullet journaling and that's just a part of my collection. I keep all of my bullet journaling supplies on the shelves on my desk.
The plant on my desk is a Sansevieria 'Starfish'. It's pretty hardy and has survived me forgetting to water it quite often.
I recently hung up these three photos from Society 6. They really add some warmth to my space and a touch of personality. I specifically chose the line art of the ballerina since I used to dance.
Do you have a dedicated office space or an on-the-go setup in your house? I would LOVE to see your workstations - comment below!
