My Home Office: Blogging Paradise!

Hey guys! So if you didn’t know a few months ago I left the corporate world and started blogging full time. It was a very scary decision but also a very exciting one as well. I’ve always wanted to do my own thing since I was little. I was always thinking of invention ideas so I didn’t have to work a desk job. Blogging combines all of my skills and interests: Writing, sales, visual merchandising, photography and being creative. I’ve been loving it! The only downfall is that I didn’t have a home office. For the first month I would work at the dining table or the couch. Seems pretty awesome at first but my back and mind didn’t agree after about 4 days.

I finally decided to create my own space and make an at home office right in my bedroom. I’m actually typing this blog post from my home office right now. Whoop, whoop! I purchased all of my office furniture and decor from Athome stores. This place is legit amazing. It’s like walking into Sam’s Club or Costco but filled with home decor. My kind of heaven.

So this was my office space before I created an at home office. Yep, couch working at it’s finest folks. Seems fun and cozy, but I found myself watching more HGTV than blogging or responding to emails.

I also hung up an old school photo of Los Angeles from the 50’s above it. I thought it worked perfectly with the colors. Plus I love California. I tried to go with a white and ocean blue/ turquoise theme with a pop of pink from my adorable journal I also got at Athome.

How cute is this journal? I love how it says “Be Bold” because right now in my life I need to be bold. I have taken a big risk leaving the corporate world and to see that every day I am reminded that I need to be bold and confident with my choice and keep on going!

I also love the large mirrored S for Scarlett! Makes the desk a bit more personalized and fun. The fact that it’s a mirror is pretty cool too because if I open my blinds in my room I can look into the S and see outside. Well hello sunshine and clouds in the sky, nice to see you! Oh, and the blue candle is also from Athome and it’s called “Sea Mist” and it really takes my mind to the ocean, which is my favorite place on earth.

Oh, also look who’s bed is now right next to my desk, Zoey’s! She loves to take naps during the day here while I work.

Do you work from home? Do you have a home office? If you have an Athome store I would highly recommend checking them out for your office needs. So many options and SO affordable which you guys know I love a good deal!

Until next time, I will be here in my home office working away!

Cheers,

Scarlett

    I’m hoping that I can begin working from home within the next few years. Creating an attractive work space is important for productivity. I like the space that you’ve created, especially the picture above your desk.

      Thanks so much! I hope you get to work from home soon! You got this!

    This is so cool. I am happy you managed to take the leap and make blogging a full-time job – that’s my dream. Your new workplace looks awesome.
    And I also dream of having a room just for my home-office. Even if it’s a doll sized room I still hope to have that someday…

    • Scarlett on July 21, 2016 at 5:02 pm

      Thanks so much for your kind words. I hope you can do the same! You could even get a small desk and place it in your bedroom! That’s what I did. 🙂 Cheers!
