I recently featured what I usually wear when I’m at home, as well as a peek at our cozy living room. I also have a cozy little corner of my own, a desk and sewing area.
I wanted an area with lots of natural light, for projects and crafts. This area is off the top of the stairs on the top level, opposite our master bedroom, and it has two large windows side-by-side that provide for a sunlit and cheerful space.
My desk also serves as a craft and sewing table, as my portable sewing machine fits perfectly into the bottom left side. Sewing materials and supplies round out the drawers on the right.
Can you spot all the IKEA pieces in my little niche? 😉 The desk is from the Hemnes line (we also have side tables and a chest of drawers from the Hemnes collection). The rolling desk chair with its cheerful gingham fabric and bows down the back is also from IKEA, as well as the grey bendable lamp seen in a pic below, and the white storage bench to the left of the desk.
My “inspiration boards” are above the white bench (they’re from Michael’s), and we put up a couple of hooks on the window wall so I have a place to hang my sewing projects. I also hang up my next-day work outfits there.
To the right of my desk you can spot a sliver of my new MiniBox organizer, featured in this earlier post. Its white beadboard siding goes with the other white pieces, and its wood top ties in with my wood rocking chair. I grew up with this rocking chair, which was my mom’s; she gave it to me when I first moved out on my own. It has a lot of sentimental value for me, of course, plus it has a classic, comfortable shape. The rocking chair was also featured in a post from a few years ago, in our house in Portland.
Last, but not least, of course my cat Ibsen wanted to get in on the action! After all, with his grey-and-white coat, he fits right into the color scheme. 😉
Did you enjoy this peek at my little work area at home? Do you have a “room of one’s own” as well? Please leave a comment and share!
