Today’s Ottawa Home Office
We asked for pictures of your home office to share with our readers. And we're thrilled to say that you delivered.
Today is reader ‘Mimi’:
My space isn't for everyone, lucky it is designed for me by me. A lot of work passes across this desk.
Vintage IKEA desk top, followed by vintage modified IKEA stools that serve as "lily pads" for my coworkers to climb and reach the catwalk above my left shoulder.
The door through the window to the catio had to be reinforced, and the red tuck tape offes a bit of colour and flare and a nod to the love the inside-out-side space has received.
To the right is one of my coworkers putting in deep thinking time. As one of my college profs said "Writing is a thinking process."
Behind my computer, again,IKEA to the rescue. Hot glued cork trivets work well as improvised bulletin boards which allow me to keep inspiration and rotating reminders close at hand.
The artwork is eclectic. A bit of shiny Christmas that is either early for this year or late for last, my favorite cartoons from the New Yorker, my inspiration and favorite Pokemon and my found not-a-Banksy art.
The space suits me. I know where to find everything and find the coziness and chaos helps me feel productive and settled (kind of like caffine for the ADD brain).
