I'm finally getting round to sharing my new blogging space! It's been somewhat finished for a good few weeks now however I've been cracking on with decorating the rest of the house as I wanted to get it all completed. For the longest time I'd dreamt of having an iMac sitting on a white desk however needed a laptop as it would be more practical at the time and decided to buy a Macbook a few years ago instead. With my Macbook running ever so slow recently, I decided to take the plunge and buy an iMac in hope that it would allow me to become more productive.
The only thing that was stopping me was the fact that I had no where to put it as I turned my previous office into a nursery for Harry. I was indecisive as to where to put a desk initially and couldn't decide between the living room and my bedroom, however finally decided it would probably be safer in the bedroom away from the kids!
I had plenty of ideas on how I would create my own blogging space, however the majority of them were with a large desk and a in a separate room which I no longer had. I had to re-think my options and decided to create a little workspace in the corner of the bedroom. I found a small desk from Ikea which was the perfect size and decided to buy an Eames chair which would go perfectly with the decor I had in mind. I wanted to keep the space as light and airy as possible and decided to paint the room white and re-decorate the bedroom at the same time.
Once I had my desk, chair and iMac it looked very bare and didn't have any character to it at all! I had a few ideas in mind of what I wanted to add to the walls with a pegboard, an Ikea picture ledge to add lots of frames and plants but had to re-think as I couldn't put a shelf directly above the iMac as there is a socket below. In the end I decided to download and print a few quotes and popped them into frames. I also have my daily blogging checklist on the wall alongside a calendar for this month.
I still have a few more bits that I would like to change around or add but for now I am happy with it and I am definitely feeling far more productive than I was blogging from the sofa or my bed! Here are a few photos, although you've probably already seen my blogging space over on Instagram!

I'd love to know what you think of my new blogging space. Do you have a blogging space and do you find yourself being more productive when you work from it/
