Last year my dream came true and I got my very own home office. It's a fancy cabin behind the house and every time I make the commute through the garden, I thank my lucky stars. Unfortunately, all my money went on the building, so I've kitted out the inside with my old desk and chair, a Billy bookcase (from IKEA) and a set of shelves from Freecycle. But a girl can dream, and as soon as my cash flow allows I'm going to get myself at least one of these beautiful storage solutions. My lovely office deserves it! I'm sure yours does, too…
The following banner is an affiliate one. That means Writing Tips Oasis receive a small % of the sale if you purchase The Novel Factory, but at no extra cost to you:
1. A wooden set of drawers from Cox & Cox. These aren’t available until early July but you can sign up for a stock alert email (probably a good idea if you have your heart set on them). There are six shallow drawers, each with a slot so that you can label them. They cost £65 and will bring battered, rustic charm to your desk space.
2. In my view, you can never have too many drawers and these red metal ones from IKEA are cheerful and practical. Plus, they only cost £25.
3. Who said office storage has to be plain? This large woven basket from Berry Red is perfect for hiding paperwork. It’s 38cm x 40cm x 40cm and costs £50.50.
4. These paper and cardboard A4 box files have vintage-style patterns and ribbon ties. They are pretty enough to use as reusable gift boxes or for storing special keepsakes. The box files come in either pink trellis or pink paisley are are £12 each from NotOnTheHighStreet.
5. While a wall-mounted magazine holder would be space-saving and practical, I can't quite resist this ‘Saturnus’ magazine rack. The colourful wooden balls really brighten up a functional object and I love its retro feel. Available from A Place For Everything for £35.
