Before, you get started reading this post, I have to warn you that it is fairly long. It’s mostly a guide for me when I start redecorating my room. I’ll be moving soon, and having my dream space is one of my priorities, so I’ll be focusing on this when I do move, and it’s super helpful to have this in hand. I hope you enjoy this journey with me.
I want it to be functional, clean, and a space of inspiration.
- I want a minimal color palette of black, white, and earth tones.
- There must be an open desk concept with a big space to work on top.
- The chair must be stylish, but comfortable.
- There must be lots of plants!
- It must be a place of inspiration.
- A place to store all my supplies.
Desk & Chair
These two below are both open desk concepts. I love the large working space on top, and how minimal the desk is without any drawers. I’d like to keep very little on top of my desk. At most, a decoration, a plant, and my most used supplies ie. pens and sticky notes.
Some desks and chairs I may consider purchasing:
The two desks are from IKEA. And, the chairs are both from Anthropologie.
I would like to have a shelving unit either placed on my wall or have a shelving unit that could be moved to store all my items.
I would like to use wired & woven baskets, photo boxes, and magazine holders to put my papers and supplies. For most often used pens, paper clips, & sticky notes, I’d like to have an acrylic organizer placed on the desk.
Some storage pieces that I may purchase:
All pieces were found from target.
I want artwork that follows the minimal scheme and color palette I’ve mentioned above. Since I do paint, I may simply just paint my own art that looks like the ones I’ve shown to save some money.
I may incorporate some photography as well and create a gallery. I would include photos of architecture, abstract, and nature. I love how this desk space still follows the minimal scheme and includes minimal art.
I love these leaf prints – I think those would be simple to recreate. I also love the idea of having this grid board above the desk, but instead of rose gold, I’d want it in black. And, there I could include some more art and photographs.
Some pieces I may consider purchasing or recreating:
So, I love the idea of including my favorite quote and putting it on my wall with a black frame. I also love dark art, so definitely would like to incorporate that, but with an earthy vibe.
I may consider creating a shelving unit simply for plants right above the desk or an acrylic calendar board.

"Confusion can be a gift from [the universe]. Looking back on instances when I felt desperately in need of an immediate solution, I can see that often I wasn't ready to act. When I became fully ready, the information I needed was there for the taking. When I know too much about my options before the time is right to exercise those options, I tend to use the information only to drive myself crazy. That's why today, when I am feeling confused, I try to consider it grace. It may not yet be time for me to act. If a clear solution to a problem hasn't shown it's self yet, I can trust that it will appear when the time is right."
