As part of my new year resolution of home improvements, here is a blog post that’s been sitting in my Drafts folder the past couple of weeks.
As I continue to make our house a home, I want to document the process to make sure I stay on track, and so here’s the first basic change I made a couple of months ago, attempting to make our home office less office-y and more home-y.
We still have a way to go though 🙁 .
We finally decided that the study was the perfect place to hang up snubnose’s Modigliani that K and I were arguing about. To make me even more happy, we also decided to put up the infamous lampshade I bought in January this year. I really do wish we had gone all the way and just bought the largest size.
Everything looks too small in our house now.
This is where I blog as I listen to streaming music. And if you are wondering what is the purple eye sore in the corner, that’s the snubnose’s camera.
My wish now is to get rid of all those unsightly cables and hubs that are a part of the office desk. I am also in a hurry for Piglet to just grow up already so that he stops opening drawers and pulling stuff off the table. Because of him, our study drawers and lower storage (you can’t see it in the photo, but the table has plenty of storage) lies empty and everything is heaped up on the left corner against the wall.
My ideal office space/blogging nook would be like the one below. I drool over this image all the time. This desk is just catnip for minimalists like me. The name also just calls to me – One Less Desk. So simple and minimal.
Sigh! This is just too pricey, and when you factor in shipping, and customs, it is totally out of my budget. It’s also probably impractical. While I love the form factor and the idea of it, I am unsure how it will resolve real-world storage problems of backup devices, printers, scanners, cable modems, wireless routers and so on.
Still one can always dream, right?
