To get into the right frame of mind, to get into a productive state of mind, you need to set up your workspace. Somewhere to sit and organise your thoughts so that you can do the best possible job you can.
Do you know where I have been doing my work for the past 4 years?
Honestly, I don’t know how I’ve ever got any work done. I have had distractions from the tv and my posture has not helped me get into the mindset of a productive woman on a mission!
I did have a desk, but it was cramped and just wasn’t a space to induce creative flow. I needed to put real effort into making a space and Nöa & Nani were the people to offer me a solution.
Their furniture is gorgeous, I mean really gorgeous, and when I saw their Vermont desk I knew it was what I needed.
Isn’t it beautiful?
It is made from solid oak and is big enough to allow me to spread out all of my work and still have room to spare.
It has 2 slim drawers at the front, which are perfect for my pens and other bits and bobs and it has a cable tidy at the back which keeps all of my leads tucked away.
I don’t think I have ever loved a piece of furniture as much as this desk!
I’ll be honest though, I was worried that even with a new desk I would find myself sitting on the sofa – but that just hasn’t happened!
I wanted to create a space that drew me in and kept me wanting to go back again and again. So I chose this amazing frame to go above the desk and filled it with lots of pretty photos. I was going to put one giant print up in a frame but actually, I prefer this option as I can think back to when the photo was taken and smile.
I also treated myself to a comfy new chair – I just love the print!
And of course, I have all of my little trinkets to make it homely.
It is officially my new favourite space!
I didn’t realise creating a workspace would make such a difference to the way I work and the attitude I have towards getting work done. But having my new desk has made me so much more productive and I am getting more done because I just love sitting there in my own peace and quiet!
Here is a room tour…
The only thing I need is a lamp – any suggestions?
If you are looking to create an office space then check out the Nöa & Nani Vermont Desk – you won’t be disappointed! You can buy it here: www.noaandnani.co.uk (as of 22/07/18 it is on sale!).
I was gifted the desk but all words and thoughts are my own.
