I wanted to take a moment to share with you a little tour of my home office. And with all that happened in 2020, my home office has been my working office since March. In 2019, I was building up a space that fit my needs for working on my websites and editing photos for my photography hustle.
We are in an apartment, so my home office is a little nook right off the kitchen, without any access to natural lighting. A little 912 square foot apartment and I share the office with the cat little box (contained, of course). Here’s a sample of the layout of our place. We don’t have a patio because we are on the first floor, but our other entryway leads into a garage which gives us extra storage space.
The arrows were a DIY during quarantine. They are two six-inch strips of electrical tape. I measured out the points to be twelve inches apart from the top down. The next row over, the points are six inches below/above. This was a great way to bring in some design elements without painting the walls. They are also easily removable when I leave!
I added the bookshelf in last year to give space to show off photos/decor. The box at the bottom contains camera equipment. And the little bit of a messy looks of other photo backgrounds equipment wedged in on the sides.
The Texas image was a DIY project.
My desk is the West Elm Parsons desk as the base. I added the Ikea ALEX add-on unit in white. On top of that, I am using this clear acrylic monitor stand. The Monitor is from LG. I’m using an Elgato Thunderbolt Docking station with a 16″ Macbook Pro, complete with a full-length bluetooth keyboard and trackpad.
I share the space with my cat. We keep Potato’s food on top of this black sideboard, so that Colt doesn’t eat it.
Then, inside the sideboard, is the litter box. I cut out a small hole on the side so Potato can get inside. This has helped keep odors contained and he has a walkway to minimize the amount of litter on his paws.
