Hi there, thanks for your question. I reserve them for lesser-used craft items that don't need to be accessed too often, for example wool, fabric scraps and bookbinding supplies. I recommending laying an old teatowel over the top of the contents or putting them in zip lock bags to avoid things getting too dusty. Hope that helps!

Yep, the handles on the desk drawers are from Ikea as part of their kitchen range.

Hi Ellie

It's an original Planet lamp from the 80s, my parents bought it for me when I was a baby! You might be able to pick one up on eBay.

After seeing this photo my husband and I were inspired to go to Ikea and purchase these shelves and arranged them on our wall in a very similar way. It is a great look!!

The shelves are the 110cm Lack shelves from Ikea.

The desk is 175cm W x 59cm D x 78cm H and was constructed from Ikea kitchen cabinets.

Good luck!

It is a DIY custom desk that the owner of this office made out of kitchen cabinets from IKEA. Here is a link to her blog where she describes how it was done.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Prepping Your Home Office for Big Business
Insert your personality by peppering your shelves with functional accessories in bold colors. Cool desk lamps are always a great jumping off point for color.
Alicia's advice for planning a home office: "Before you buy anything new or decorate a room, take time to work out what you need from the room. In our case, we needed plenty of storage for my husband’s teaching resources and aids, and for my design books, portfolios and art supplies. I also wanted to maximize desk space, so finding somewhere else for the printer and scanner was a must. We ended up building a custom desk from Ikea kitchen cabinets. It’s wonderful: it fits the space perfectly and holds everything, including the printer and scanner. Overhead floating shelves add extra room for storage plus decor items so it doesn’t feel too much like an office. It has worked well for a couple of years but it’s time for an update as I now work from home and require space for inventory, work in progress and packaging."
Vanessa Brunner added this to Show Us Your Home Office!
We want to see your storage solutions, organization secrets, or your trick for carving out office space from another room in the house.
4. A graphic designer's townhouse in South Australia: Alicia Parsons, a.k.a. Atypical Type A, has transformed her townhouse with paint, thrifted finds, artwork and creativity. The design of this neat workspace was inspired by the yellow lamp.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to How to Store Your Stuff in Plain Sight
Home offices are some of my most favorite spaces to explore with colorful storage. Not only do they help with the mundane chore of sorting bills, they also perform double duty as invigorating color boosters to a neutral palette.
Floating shelves over a desk can be functional, holding extra supplies, or they can be filled with inspirational objects that you can change out whenever you want. Play with the arrangement of multiple shelves.
Bneato Professional Organizing added this to Meet Your Desk: How to Create a Workspace That Works
Here is a great example of a DIY shelf going vertical, using apple crates to store items within arms reach.
Putting those bins up and out of sight ensures the contents are only visible when they need be.
Bneato Professional Organizing added this to Paperless Home Offices Show Reams of Style
For starters, take a look around your home. Check out your home office, the entryway and the countertops. How great would it feel if all that paperwork were to vanish? There would be a reduced chance of misplacing important bills, and you wouldn't be scrambling to find stamps to mail late paperwork.And can you imagine a world without a file cabinet or file box? In this picture, the file cabinet towers over the desk. A beautiful plant or just open space would be a more serene option to have if the paperwork in this home were online.
