When I’m not blogging about interiors, I’m writing professionally through my freelance writing business, ContentWriter.ie.
I work from home, so when I moved to my rental bungalow in Wicklow, I transformed a small bedroom space into a functional, yet inspirational workspace.
Confined to the restrictions of tenant life, I had to stick to neutral magnolia for the wall colour, but I added personality by making a feature wall with photographs.
A street trader in Bangkok, hand-made fabric bunting in Vietnam, spectacularly unforgettable Thai sunsets…I shot this mix of abstract and scenic photographs on my worldwide adventures.
To style the space, I introduced a copper lamp from Dunnes Stores and a copper cushion from B&Q.
As well as copper, I chose black as an accent colour. My notebook, plant pots, office chair and mouse matt are all black.
I also commissioned Irish leathersmith and designer, Peter Myler, to make a custom leather pen holder with my logo.
A cream sheepskin rug adds cosiness.
Plants add life to the space and oxygenate the air.
I added texture with the wicker baskets.
Because I love any texture that nods to nature, I chose oak effect shelves and a matching desk from Ikea.
Encouraged by the wonderfully inspirational blog, Minimal Desks, I try to keep my workspace free from clutter.
