I’ve finally started decorating my office so that I can sit in a proper work environment when it comes doing my freelance work in the evenings, so the last few weeks I have spent SO MUCH time lusting over some incredible travel themed office decor.
As the office is just my space it’s the perfect room to decorate with as many travel items as I can, as it’s the only room my boyfriend doesn’t get a say in.
I could honestly list about 100 different things I want to stuff in my (very small) office, but for this post, I thought I’d give my current top six.
I’ve wanted a scratch map for so long that it HAD to be the first thing I included in this wishlist. As soon as I get one it’s going in pride of place above my desk so I can get distracted day dreaming about all the places I want to scratch off next. The one pictured is from scratchmap.org, but there are so many places that sell them and in hundreds of different styles!
Travel Themed Mug
What is an office without a mug? Although the only hot drink I like is peppermint tea, I still feel like I need a go to mug. I love this one as it’s both travel themed and has one of my favourite quotes on it.
Black and Gold Globe
I always through globes were for fancy people, but since I’ve started planning my office decor owning my own is all I’ve been able to think about. I was surprised at how cheap they are, especially this stunningly abstract one for just £28.00 from Anthropologie.
World Map Vinyl Wall Art
Originally I wanted this vinyl wall art to go above our bed in the main bedroom but my boyfriend wasn’t keen, so I compromised and said I’d put it in my office instead (that is if I don’t buy the world map wallpaper I’ve been lusting after). It looks SO fiddly to apply, but doesn’t it look incredible after? NEED.
Travel Savings Jar
I want to start putting the money I earn from blogging and freelancing away for my travel fund, however, I always get too tempted to spend it. I’m hoping keeping a real life savings jar in my office will encourage me not to spend it as I’ll physically be able to see the money from my hard work building up over time.
City Themed Pencils
I’m really surprised that I have managed to put together an office themed wish list and only include one piece of stationery, but what will be will be. These pencils are super cute and such a cheap find on Etsy that I couldn’t resist including them.
I think I’ve literally been talking about decorating my office for the last twelve months now (it’s actually taken so long I’m surprised I haven’t got fed up and hired office furniture consultants instead), that I’m so excited to FINALLY get it finished.
Does anyone else feel like a nicely decorating working space makes them so much more productive? No? Just me then…
What would you put in your dream office?
