How To Have An Organized Office Nook

Hello everyone, welcome to my blog! First of all, I just want to say thank you for stopping by, I do appreciate your effort being here reading my blogs. Now, let’s start our topic for this week: How To Have An Organized Office Nook.  

 

Of all of the spaces I have in my home, I dearly like my home office space the best. Home Office is a space where you can say that is truly your own. This is the space where you can spend most of your time working when at home, or running a business especially if it is an online one. You can decorate and paint it the way you want, and incorporate into it some personal things that would make it homier. Recently, I find myself wandering toward home offices. Every time I see my office space beautiful and organized it makes me feel more excited to do my work. Today, I will share with you about My Favorite Organized Home Office Space.

 

When I started reading an article about home and office decorations, I was moved to start decorating my own. I started the redecorating by buying inexpensive furniture and decorations and selling my old one. I even conducted a garage sale for this which made me easily disposed of them. I was lucky to find some suitable items for redecorations at many thrift stores downtown. Contrary to what many believe, you don’t have to buy expensive or brand new furniture during renovations. With creativity and innovations, you can make the second-hand items you bought work. Just have a keen eye for perusing these things and make sure that they are still useable.  

 

How do you get second-hand items? Simple. You can find thrift stores near you via online search. You can check out also the ads being posted at popular newspapers from time to time. If you know homeowners planning to sell their home after they read the reviews we buy houses company, you can check out if they are going to sell their used home furniture. You can take advantage of this and get unique pieces that you cannot find on the market now.  

 

I personally bought a console table that was originally designed for dining room drawer but I altered its purposed and made it hold all my office essentials. I’ve painted the piece with the color that matches the room and added some details and small storage bins to keep my pens, notepad, and files together and neatly. The result was exquisite. Now, all my office supplies are beautifully organized inside the drawers. So when I need items such as a washi tape, cards from contacts, small envelopes etc., I easily find it in this drawer. 

 

I also got a wall shelves on the market for a cheap price, I painted it and jazzed the brackets up above the console table. I just bought it for display purposes. For me, I like to see things that inspire me and have special meaning while I’m working so I surround my office space with meaningful and inspiring quotes. For an extra storage, I created a simple but pretty box and put it on the wall shelves. To give the boxes a life, I put a framed nice words such as hello, good morning and many others good words that will definitely brighten up my day every time I saw it. The boxes are for storing cards, thank you notes, and photos given by friends. 

 

For the final touch, I hung a clipboard on the wall so that I will easy to see my scheduling essential and monthly calendar. One holds a 2016 calendar and the other a monthly calendar. To decorate your home, it doesn’t need to have a big space, you’ll just need be creative, neat and organized.

In this blog, I will be featuring all of my interior design works and ideas, sharing it with you, in an effort to give you inspiration in your own design works. This is also to let you know that I would love to work with you too, in order to bring to reality all the interior design visions in your head and translate it to a beautiful home. I can work with parts of your home, from your kitchen, bedroom and even your glass garage door in Albuquerque to your entire abode. We recently had ours looked at by fine technicians at our favorite Albuquerque garage door repair company. My aim is to always to improve the aesthetics of your home and enhance its value.

I offer my services in many different ways. I can work with you electronically and online through what I have dubbed as e-decoration and also through personal consultation. Name a coffee shop of your choice, book a date and time you prefer and I will definitely make myself available for you. When I work with you, you will get a digital design board, summary of concept and list of sources. Know that I specialize in designing nurseries!

To know what defines me and my branding identity, see my work stamp below:

Pink is not just for babies

I have been intrigued by blush pink since I started seeing it released in so many Spring fashion collections.  I wouldn’t typically define myself as a girly girl, as I’m more drawn to casual environments and blue jeans much more than Pink.  But lately, I’ve been really into all things, pink, Pink, PINK.  I’m even integrating the fantastic soft color into my new branding identity.
When it’s used right, it doesn’t have to be a baby color.  It’s soft and sophisticated.  In the room I’m designing for the SF Showcase house, I’m becoming known as the girl with the ‘Pink’ room since my walls and trim are all painted this fantastic shade of blush Pink!  {color: C2-2022 Winsome}
 

Doily, doily, doily

My life has been all serious, all business, all the time lately.  I think it’s time to lighten up!  I was perusing through a British magazine and found some fab product all with either laser cut or doily themes.  Just saying the word d-o-i-l-y makes me smile.  Try it, say “Doily.”
Big smile on your face, right?!  I like the perfect combination of modern and feminine, a doily rug made with rope or the Alden style suede shoes with lace.  I love the idea of a woman wearing men’s shoes, with a twist!

Golden Gate Bridge

I’m doing a remodel project in the Inner Richmond district which is just a stone’s throw away from the Golden Gate Bridge.  After nailing most of the design for the main rooms, I have moved on to the fun kids’ rooms!  Family of four with two young ones in the house, a 3-year-old and one on the way.

When trying to select the design for the oldest son’s big boy room in his new house, mom mentions that her 3-year-old is very proud of his geography, he enjoys naming his local landmarks: Coit Tower, the painted ladies, Alcatraz, the GG Bridge.  What a cool place to grow up!

Immediately my mind went to one of my favorite kid books: M.Sasek’s series “This is San Francisco.”  The Czech illustrator and author did such a good job at capturing the city, I love his sketches, colors and vintage flair.  This book, along with the GG Bridge color was very much an inspiration for this ‘big boy’ room.

Best Apps for Home Designs

Hello there! In this day and age, taking advantage of apps is a great way to start in the interior design of your home.

  1. Room Planner
    This is a great app that can be used by all Apple iOs users. Here, you can create mockups of your floor plans in 2-D which you can manipulate and translate to 3-D so that you can add accessories, rugs, furniture and put in different colors.
  1. Homestyler Interior Design
    A bit similar to room planner, this Homestyler Interior Design App is a simple way to showcase your ideas by creating different designs and positioning the furniture, lighting and other fixtures.

  1. Pinterest
    Are you interested in compiling your interior ideas in just one place? Or do you want to create a mood board with all the designs, furniture, carpets and accessories that go together? Then, start creating your Pinterest boards. It is easy to share from one person to the next.
  1. Wunderlist
    Doing your own design project requires various lists, to share with your client or your interior designer, your contractors, your expenses list and so on. Be on top of everything by using Wunderlist, a great way to organize everything.

    Similar to Wunderlist, Evernote is a great way to track all your to-dos and the million and one things that you need to be on top of. Evernote is a great management app that even allows you to share photos, videos, voice clips and more.
