Adding Personality To My Workspace

3rd July 2017

Despite spending a considerable amount of time working from home, my office is neglected. In addition to being my workspace it’s also a utility room and the cats HQ. Posterlounge kindly invited me to pick out some new artwork to print on a poster for my home and I instantly thought of my workspace.

I’ve slowly accumulated tropical themed home accessories so decided to add a bit of personality to my desk by incorporating those.

Posterlounge have a huge variety of artwork to choose from, available on a selection of materials and in different sizes. I opted for a cheerful typographic poster on Forex -a thick rigid surface- at 50x70cm. My poster arrived within a few days, safely packaged and complete with mounts for hanging on the wall. Although I picked this material so I wouldn’t have to hang the poster.

Adding Personality With A Poster

I love how easy it is to inject personality to a space with artwork. I’m a big fan of typographic prints. This new addition really tied my desk decor together.

The office isn’t yet decorated. So I love being able to add personality to my otherwise boring desk in the meantime. I think this corner may now inspire the whole room’s decor. I’m forever seeing tropical pieces I love in the shops at the moment.

For some rooms in the house, I knew exactly how I wanted to decorate. With others -especially multipurpose rooms like the study- it’s not so straightforward. Playing with themes has been a great way to experiment before taking the plunge and getting the paint out.

What do you think of my new tropical workspace?

  • I love it! Especially with those pineapple lights. And such a nice message too – I had a print on my desk at my stepdad’s house that just said You Are Awesome. When you’re working alone it’s hard to feel motivated, which is why you need random pieces of paper or card to scream motivational messages and remind you to have a nice day, right? 😀

  • I think it’s fantastic. It’s important to add positivity around your work-space and home. It helps your mood and creativity.

  • Love it! A positive and topical work space! You’re so creative. I’m so indecisive when it comes to decorating…!

  • Ooh I love this print! I’m a huge fan of typographic prints too, so much so that I actually create my own tehe.
