Sooo, this has been a long time coming. After spending a year either on the couch, in my pjs, hunched over my laptop or at the dining room table, in my pjs, hunched over my laptop, the time has finally come. I present to you my first proper little workstation.

It is tiny, put in a far away corner of the living room, but nonetheless I already love it fiercely. And so does my neck and back after suffering too many months of abuse on the previously mentioned couch. The Hunchback of Notre Dame has nothing on me people. Thank goodness for yoga and balancing it all out, I tell you.

But in all seriousness, it feels really good to have a designated work area where I can just leave my computer and tablet without worrying about cleaning it away at day's end. And I got to decorate the minimal space I have with some undying succulents and favourite prints. Oh and we impulse-bought this new chair, which is kind of a hybrid between comfortable and back-supporting but still pretty enough to be standing in the living room on display. So really, hurrah on all fronts!

On a related note, Eva has an amazing column on her blog about people's work spaces. Go check it out for some serious desk inspiration. I'd love to know where you work in your home. Are you a recovered couch-worker, like me, or do you have a different set up? Do share!

Now back to work :)
