Think block heels, ankle-wraps, natural materials, stand-out fabrics and perforated styles Also, be sure to add pops of bright color, classic sneakers and continue to see the backless mule and easy slides.

My Spring/Summer Reading List…

While on vacation last week, I finally got the chance to read a book that was gifted to me several months ago, but I just hadn’t made the time to read. They say, “Timing is everything”, and I think this was no exception to that rule. I haven’t made the time to read a whole lot of anything lately, other than blogs. So, after enjoying this book so very much on my trip, I’ve decided I need to read the next book by the same author and possibly some others. So, I’ve compiled a list of books that I find appealing, all that can be purchased through Amazon, and I’m committing to watching a little less TV this spring/summer and a little more time to knocking out some of my reading list. In case you’re interested, I’ve linked some of the books I’m considering below…

How I Added a Small Workspace to Help Me Clear My Countertops {Plus, Some of my Favorite Small Desks, Chairs and Office Decor}

If you’ve ever read Love the Home You Have (if you haven’t, I highly suggest it), you’ve been versed on the benefits of clearing your countertops and the surfaces in your home. Having clutter-free countertops can contribute to your overall peace of mind. For me personally, when I see a stack of papers and clutter on my countertops, my mind wanders into a space where I feel overwhelmed with all of the things I need to be doing. My last kitchen had a built-in desk, which I LUV’d. It was a space where I could organize all of my work/mom life items, and it felt somewhat detached from our eating space. The kitchen in my current home does not have a built-in desk. So, a year or two ago, I purchased a desk for my guest bedroom upstairs, and intended to have this space function as a guest bedroom/office space for myself. However, being on the second level, it just isn’t accessible enough.

I don’t have many empty walls downstairs, so bringing the desk down wasn’t an option (it’s pretty big). With that in mind, I decided I wanted to find a super compact desk for my bedroom. I wanted one that wouldn’t take up much space (or now make my bedroom feel cluttered), but enough to hold my computer, agenda and paperwork (mail) I need to access daily. I found this one at Homegoods, and immediately I knew it was the one. The natural mango wood blends well with the feel of our bedroom furniture and I added a simple metal chair.

Here are some of my favorite options for small and compact desks for all budgets .(There are several under $100!) I’ve also linked some great options for tower desks (which are great for space saving options as well)…

And some simple chair options for small workspaces:

The hardware that came on the drawers of the desk were 2 brushed brass simple knobs. I’m a big fan of dressing up furniture (and cabinets) by adding unique hardware. So when I saw this desk, I immediately thought it would be fun to change the knobs. I found a set of 4 gold/opal white egg-shape knobs at Homegoods and changed the knobs to make the desk a little more unique. Here are some of my favorite knobs. (I’ve even used some of these in my bathrooms and other furniture pieces in my home.)

Some of my favorite coffee mugs:

I LUV wall macrames for an organic, natural feel. This indigo dip-dyed one matches my bedroom rug perfectly, and blue is one of my favorite colors to add to a space. Here are some great options for wall macrames, if you’d like to add one to your space as well:

Some of my favorite organizational/decor/office supply options for a functional workspace:

Hope this has inspired you to declutter and add a workspace to your own home! Got any tips or questions… feel free to add them to the comments!
