Desk Areas

A place for you to unwind and relax, or buckle down and get some hard work done - the desk area is a crucial part of any abode. A great place to express your personality, the desk area can also easily become cluttered and disorganized...not a very great environment to work hard in!
In this blog post, we're going to share some tips with you about expressing yourself through your desk area and reducing the clutter, while introducing you to a few different desk style options.

A great idea to think about when decorating around your desk is applying wallpaper behind the area. Go for something simple, not too bold because it will distract you from your work, but inspiring enough to make you feel happy and relaxed in that area.

Try to keep your area free from unnecessary clutter, consider purchasing or creating your own storage system nearby so that all your bits and pieces are safe and out of your way.

 For the modern lover in all (*most*) of us, our Georgia Mirrored Dresser is the perfect picture of elegance! Featuring three roomy drawers to store any necessities (pens, spare paper, staplers...lipstick...), the Georgia Mirrored Dresser contrasts the glam factor of the beveled mirrored front and top with the sleek and modern black legs and edging.

Pop a mirror (click here to view our range of mirrors) behind it and the Georgia Mirrored Dresser transforms into a stunning vanity! Use it as a console, dresser, or of course - desk. The Georgia truly is a versatile piece!

If you really want to be unique, add a spark of colour to your Georgia Mirrored Dresser with a colourful desk lamp or bright vase filled with fresh flowers.

Two great colourful lamp options include our cool Cobra Table Lamp (above) and our new Otto Table Lamp (below)! Both are available in bright, fun and on-trend colours that are sure to grab attention.

A great vase option is our Recycled Spanish Glass Vase in Fuchsia (above)! Contrast the gorgeous fuchsia shade with a yellow, white or blue floral arrangement or get matchy with violets - either way this vase is a stunning addition to any desk area. Our Recycled Spanish Glass Vase is also available in Orange.

 If you're looking for simple and practical, then you can't go past our Teak Office Desk. Made from 100% recycled teak and fitted with stainless steel legs, our Teak Office Desk exudes a simplicity that is simultaneously calming and invigorating. The perfect place to unwind or work hard, you can design your own space around the Teak Office Desk and be ensured that it will not overpower the area.

The ideal piece for someone looking to feel zen and at peace, or on the contrast, the artist who wants to create an area to reflect their own style and passion and not wanting furniture to clash with that expression.

Reflect your personality in your desk area by adding smaller bits and pieces that will not clutter the area, but will either serve a purpose or add charm. Mementos from holidays (seashells, etc), a family photo (or a photo of a loved one, pet or even a relaxing landscape), stationary organisers and lamps can all dress up the desk area without overpowering it.

Another great idea is to add a candle to your desk. When choosing, think of the design of the candle holder - you don't want anything to bright as it will cause distraction while you are working. Try to find simple glass, white or black candle holders. Think of what kind of scents you like and consider when you will be burning your candle.

You may wish to purchase two separate candles: one with a relaxing scent to burn while you're unwinding, and another with a less intense scent burn when you're working - although that is entirely up to each individual.

 Our Candle in Hello Hamptons has an incredible scent that is universally appealing and versatile enough to work for times when you are relaxing or working. The classic scent of freesia blooms is calming and will add an aura of tranquility to your room, while the sweet pineapple, cranberries and peaches contrast and evoke, allowing you to focus and concentrate when necessary.

Made in Australia, our Candle in Hello Hamptons is created from a soy blend, and is beautifully packaged in a stylish glass jar that you can then reuse to store your paperclips or bits and pieces on your desk!

Gorgeous, understated and practical are three words that perfectly define our Tresor Console! This two drawer desk is the ideal piece for anyone craving simplicity, or someone who does not have a lot of area to work with. The antique inspired design of the legs exudes French country appeal, while the simplicity of the two drawer design will satisfy modern lovers.

Place our Tresor Console in front of a large window for an instantly brighter, more stylish room. Continue the elegant appeal by adding white accessories to the desk, or contrast with monochromatic or colourful pieces. Our Tresor Console also makes an incredible console, small dresser or vanity.

Love the look of a mirrored desk but would prefer something more antique and glamorous than more modern pieces such as our Georgia Mirrored Dresser? Then our Antique Mirror Dresser is for you! The ultimate of luxury and glam, our Antique Mirror Dresser is fitted with stunning designed handles on each of the five spacious drawers. With antique pewter edging and legs, our Antique Mirror Dresser is almost entirely mirrored to reflect the beauty of your home.

A perfect desk, our Antique Mirror Dresser also makes for an incredible dresser, vanity, console or storage piece for your bits and pieces (make-up, etc).

If using as a console, a beautiful large centered floral arrangement looks incredible on the Antique Mirror Dresser, if using as a desk - try for a slightly smaller arrangement and place it on either of the far corners to draw attention without taking up too much space.

We love the arrangement of the above desk! The perfect contrast between monochromatic and colour pieces! Little touches such as the clock screensaver, pink floral arrangement (that enhances the pink in the artwork) and the use of a mug with a personal attachment (the letter 'J' for the persons name) as a stationary holder really give the desk area personality and style.

Create an industrial vibe with our or our Bird Leg Console (above) or our Desk Stamp Leg - Hardwood (below)!

Both desk options are ideal for a more open area, although the Bird Leg Console particularly can be easily adapted to a smaller space. Add more industrial inspired pieces to achieve the perfect mood, or contrast with different items to show your personality.

The ultimate of simplicity is our Curved Leg Console! With this piece you really are free to express your own personality and style as much or little as desired. The attractive curved legs contrasted by a flat top serves as an eye-catching, modern attraction in your home that can easily be adapted to any area. Not only a fantastic desk, our Curved Leg Console also makes for an amazing console or dressing table.

Add some intrigue to your Curved Leg Console with a statement piece such as our Nixon Clock (Large)! A practical and stylish decorator piece, our Nixon Clock (Large) adds the perfect touch of glamour and elegance to a simpler desk. Also available in a medium size, our Nixon Clock (Large) also makes an incredible complementing piece to any mirrored desk!

The important thing to consider when choosing a desk and creating your desk area is how you want to reflect your personality and whether you want to choose practicality over style or vice versa.
Try to think of creative and unique ways to express yourself through decorator pieces on your desk, but keep in mind not to over clutter the area or else you'll find it difficult to get any work done!

We recommend having a browse through Pinterest or Tumblr to get an idea of different styles and ways to express yourself.
