*This is a paid partnership with Posterlounge*
Hey everyone! I haven’t posted on here for a couple of months and a lot seems to have changed within that time. It’s such an unsettling period for everyone at the moment, so I’m sending big hugs and love to anyone that needs it right now.
We’re all going through lots of big adjustments to our everyday lives, one of which being that a lot of us are now working from home, myself included. I’ve been finding it quite challenging to settle into working from home when I’m usually used to working in a busy office environment. However, one big tip that I’d heard from numerous people was to create an environment that feels positive and comfortable to work in. So with the help of Posterlounge, who this blog post is in partnership with, I wanted to show you some detail shots of my new working from home desk space and just have a bit of a catch up chat!
So what’s changed since I last caught you up? The main thing is that I’ve recently moved back to my family home in Leicester. I made this decision pre-lockdown as it was almost certain that the country would go into lockdown due to Covid-19 and I’d wanted to be with my family instead of staying in the flat I was/am renting in London. I’m still working as a Buyer’s admin assistant, but alongside a large percentage of the country I’m now working remotely from home instead of being in the office, so I thought it was important to try and create a space that I can work from well.
I’m sure many of you can relate when I say that my taste in interior design has definitely evolved throughout my 20’s and the bedroom I decorated when I was 18 isn’t necessarily to the taste I have now (nearing on 25 in July). However it seemed really unnecessary to do a full make over, and instead I decided make small changes, like adding these poster lounge prints to add a bit more of my personality into this part of my bedroom.
So let’s get into the prints!
The Main focal print I went for was the large world map which I’ve placed above my desk. I’ve been really fortunate enough to travel to quite a few countries over the last couple of years and I’d love to be able to travel to even more once it’s safe again to do so. So for now, this is a reminder of my goal to travel more and give me motivation to plan where I’d like to go to next. Do you have any countries in particular that you want to visit when we’re allowed to travel again? Let me know in the comment box below!
On my desk itself my favourite print was the definition of ‘hy.gge’ which is printed on canvas. I think the definition really resonates with me at the moment and signifies what is most important.
‘A calm comfortable time with people you love. A complete absence of frustrations, or anything emotionally overwhelming, often enjoyed with good food and drinks, warm blankets and candlelight’
I then opted for a leaf print as I loved the pop of green it gives and it works well sitting next to the little house plants I’ve got. Also, for in my spare time before or after work I thought it would be a really nice and relaxing idea to get some of poster lounge’s colour in prints. I haven’t got started on these yet but can’t wait to put my old art skills to the test!
Finally I got a couple of prints to go on the top of my chest of drawers which is next to my desk. I went for a bright abstract print which I love the contemporary design of and also this Llama print which is actually on a wood base. I loved the effect of it and thought it was really fun and something to make me smile whenever I look at it!

Overall I’m really happy with my desk space and love the additions of the Posterlounge prints which really bring the area together. I’m excited to start working from my desk instead of my bed or sofa and fingers crossed it’ll boost my productivity levels! But if you have any other additional tips for increasing productivity whilst working from home please send them my way as well!
…and that’s about it! Stay safe and take care
