Office space, happy place!

The past few weeks have been rather hectic as we arrived back to the States, after two months spent in the UK with our wonderful family. The first stop was Virginia to say hi to family and pick up our cars. That was followed by a 9 hour drive to Louisville to collect our belongings and say hi and bye to all our friends, before driving 16 hours to Clearwater Florida to begin our next chapter. We have been here a week now and are starting to get in to the swing of things and settle in nicely. One of the things we were most eager to get organized when we arrived at our new apartments was setting up our desk spaces. Once they were up and in place and we had somewhere to write, a little bit of contentment set in and we felt a bit better and less homesick. Our desks are pretty much one of our favourite spots in our homes and we love setting them up to be a place where our imaginations can run free. Here's an inside look...
Lucy's happy place! :) 


I've toned it down a little since our last apartment, not necessarily on purpose, it was simply the way things came together. I wanted my space to be more crisp and fresh, with a bit less clutter and distractions. My desk came from Ikea and my bookshelf came from Target. This space is mostly for my writing, but this time I have the added extra of a makeup mirror and a place where I can keep all my makeup, so I don't have to run in between rooms when i'm getting ready! :) 


Let's just talk about how awesome my new wall art is!!! It's so unbelievably awesome and I adore it. Chris surprised me for my birthday with this Rob Schamberger print of Macho Man and Mrs Elizabeth and I couldn't have been more giddy. It fits perfectly in between my James Long original and my Chuck poster and is all the motivation I need when I sit down to work...ooohhhh yeeaahh! 


In keeping it clean and simple, I just have a cute Starbucks white and gold mug that I use for my pens, a small gold tealight holder, I love candles, my Rapunzel pencil case to keep little bits and bobs in, makeup brush holders and of course a million notebooks. :) 

Kelly's Happy Place!


It was a bit trickier taking pictures of my desk area, as the light is obviously right in front of me. I was excited when we moved in because this seemed like the perfect little alcove to dream and be creative. I love sun shining through the windows so it makes me happy being able to sit, focus and look outside. Like Lucy, I only added a few pictures on the wall and tried, tried  to condense what was actually on my desk. I did a little! :p


This picture makes me so giddy. I just love my little Funko Pop models. Cap I got last year and Ron, Lucy got me for my birthday. They are just the cutest things and two of my favourite characters, so I feel very inspired and motivated having them on my desk. I also have a very cute Kate Spade coaster from Lucy as well as a 50's style American fridge pencil case full of gel pens. 90's child!! :) The princess place mat is for when I use my computer, I don't want to scratch my desk! Oh and of course I have a gazillion notebooks too.


Back in my old apartment, I had a built in bookshelf upon which I had one whole shelf dedicated to all things Italian. Alas this apartment didn't have one so I cut down on all my Italian things and placed a few on my desk for motivation. The pot coaster is of the Amalfi coast and I got it from Nanna and Grandad's porch! :p My bottle of Baci chocolate notes basically just shows how much Baci I have consumed and my little Italian Easter egg reminds me of an Easter spent in Italy. :)

We hope you enjoyed this peak into our new apartments and the places where we love to sit and write this blog. Do you have a favourite spot in your home? We'd love to read about it in the comments below! 

Have an awesome Monday.
Love Lucy and Kelly xx

  2. I can’t stop staring at the pics. The office spaces look fantastic, particularly the great paint job. I love the bookshelves in my office because I deal with lots of paperwork, and they make my space look decent with less stuff. But I think I will revamp the whole space to give it a new look.
