As the office renovation continues very slowly, I’m facing another of my design dilemmas – desk styling. Like I’ve said in other posts, it’s the little things that are always the hardest with design. Trying to make a space look effortlessly styled is really difficult.
So I was flicking through pinterest, procrastinating and trying to find deskspiration when I thought, why not share it with you guys? As with the rest of the office, the aesthetic is minimalist and modern. But there are a few style tips that apply no matter where your taste lies.
LESS IS MORE
If I’ve learnt anything from past failed desk attempts, the less things you have on your desk, the easier it is to make it look like something ripped from a design magazine.
MAKE A STATEMENT
Have at least one, unexpected statement piece. A gorgeous sculpture or unusual framed photo will transform your desk from work place into work of art.
PLAY WITH HEIGHTS
One of the easiest design tricks is to mix and match the objects on your desk so they’re not all at the same eye level. Stacks of books with a candle on top for example or a tall lamp and a bucket of pencils next to a small framed picture and so on.
PLAY WITH SIZE
Just like above, variety is the spice of life, so blow their socks off with something huge and unwieldy on your desk like this gorgeous, but massive potted plant. OMG, I would kill that poor iris so quickly – maybe plastic plants then?
