A friend asked me to do a tour of my office. She thought I’d have a lot of colorful, Boho-type décor. Sorry. The walls are dingy gray and in need of a paint job. And we’re also in the process of rearranging some things upstairs, so I’m hoping to make some changes.
In the meantime, here is most of the space as it stands today:
My dry erase calendar (the monthly version) fell off the wall. My hats came down and need to be rehung. That’s my Erin Condren planner, which I love. The shelves below this contain music CDs.
I have an L-shaped el-cheapo desk. The chimney in my house runs up the center. It creates some interesting nooks. I was able to find a “corner” shelving unit where I keep reference books.
Yes, those are glow-in-the-dark stars on my desk. I am obsessed with the sky.
My actual work space, with my laptop, more reference books, etc. Another bookcase next to the desk. Wall space is at a premium.
Above my desk, I have some of my book covers framed and hung. I also have Boho-type décor hanging over me: a dream catcher, a wishing well wind chime (for refilling the well), a sea glass mobile a friend made for me when she saw me posting pictures of them on Facebook, and a chakra crystal charm.
I also have a salt lamp and to the left, several wine bottles: two different styles labels of Werewolf wine, The Novelist wine, and a Ravage wine bottle light.
The bureau top contains my RWA Chapter mementos (Book in a Week, our annual Rose Ceremony, etc.). The bureau drawers contain office supplies. Below the bookcase, I have several pretty storage boxes of stationary, Tarot/Divination decks, candles, and other things. I hope to move these once we get one of my husband’s book cases out of my office.
There are three book cases behind me. Two are my husbands. Mine is the one in the middle. I have a dry-erase 12-month planning calendar hung over the book case. Except I can’t reach it. Hopefully, the book case on the right (with the baseballs) will be moving to another room.
And that’s it. Almost. There are windows opposite the door. I have crystals hanging in them. My clothes closet is at the far end, and opposite that is the door to the attic.
Nothing fancy, as you can see. But it’s mostly functional.
