The "Anywhere" Office

So if you're anything like me and live in an apartment or house where space is scarce, you may not have the room to have a traditional office. Nonetheless, you can still have one by creating the space and organizing it like a pro!  I have a little nook in my living room that I discovered was perfect for a desk and bookcase and immediately sought to find the perfect desk. Unfortunately, my dream Pottery Barn desk cost more than my monthly rent, so I opted for an Ikea original that only cost $70 and came with both a desk and bookcase.

Since I have limited space, I decided to make the most out of my "office" by addding a large mirror and fun chair, both of which I found at Marshalls. In addition to those pieces, I found that baskets can double as magazine holders and a plant or two will liven up any space. I also decided to look for a unique set of desk organizers to house my plethora of office supplies (don't ask why I have so may, I just do lol). Check out my organizers (purchased all of them from Marshalls and TJMaxx) and some others that I came across in my travels.

To finish the space, I added an easy-to-hang bulletin board that I found at Target!  I also found that if I added some hooks for my keys, I could save at least 10 minutes every morning :)



  1. You will be so proud to know that my roomate and i invested in a keyhook. saves ridiculous amounts of time when leaving the house! : )
