what’s on my desk

what’s on my desk? ava, a lot of the time. the day i got it and put it together she plonked straight down on top and it’s been a firm favourite since.

i’ve lived in this flat for almost 7 years now and in that time i’ve never had a desk. when i’m making collages, doing blog stuff or just browsing the internet, i’ve used my lap, the floor and sometimes a tiny foldable table. i can’t tell you how good it feels to have an actual desk to work on after all this time!

currently i’ve mostly just been using my laptop on it so i can type at a more comfortable height, and edit photos without a huge amount of glare behind me. i have a few new collages to share soon too…

colourful posters from desenio

whatever your style of decor, i always believe it’s a good idea to have art in your home. of course, as an artist/illustrator myself, i am biased here, but i still firmly believe this. even if it’s a little postcard, or a huge print. something super minimal, or a colourful maximalist piece. one piece, or a whole gallery wall.

most illustrators and visual creators i know have a mix of their own and other peoples art on their walls (or, on a moodboard or similar). always good to have inspiration in as many forms as you can take it. also, if you have horrible textured wallpaper like me, you’ll cover up as much of it as you can, ha!

whatever your line of work – but especially if you work from home – how your office space looks and feels is going to be important. if it feels good, generally you’re going to be much more likely to want to stay in there instead of getting distracted by daily life.

ideally you don’t want to be working from a kitchen table, your lap on the sofa or anything like that. sometimes it’s unavoidable due to lack of space or funds, but if you can or do have a dedicated office space, i’d say the most important thing there (other than lots of natural light and a nice view if possible!) is going to be furniture.

easy ways to bring colour into your home | i-D postcard

everyone that knows me or reads this blog knows i love a bit of colour. well, okay, a lot of colour. but i know a lot of people aren’t so keen on it as i am, so i thought i’d write a post about some easy ways to bring colour into your home for spring (and in general) to hopefully give you some ideas.

art in various forms is a fantastic way to bring colour into your home. it can be a minimal print with a tiny bit of colour, or something more vibrant to contrast against otherwise monochrome surroundings. lately i’ve been loving displaying postcards around the flat as a quick and fun way of showing art, photography and typography. this would be particularly good if you didn’t want to commit to framing prints or taping things to your walls.
