We can’t help but think that it would be a little hard to work around all those fresh flowers (actually getting anything done after all the time spent arranging, watering, throwing away once dead and replacing would be hard). But we love the pretty-pink-chaos vibe of this desk space, especially those artfully-taped pantone cards that would double as great little to-do cards.

Small but perfectly formed, we love this retro minimalist desk and mustard bucket chair. As all from-home workers know, a cosy blanket is an absolute essential for when the heating goes off in the middle of the day – so if you can make it a chic chevron print one, all the better.

The devil’s in the detail in this monochrome workspace, from the gold-tipped desk legs to the freshly-plumped blush pillow. Keeping the desktop clear of clutter by choosing a desk with drawers is a good idea if you’re prone to working chaos.

This mini desk space is just bubbling over with creativity. We love the idea of a blackboard backing for scribbling ideas on, as well as the sheepskin seat cosy.

That statement lamp takes this cute little desk space from drab to fab. There’s nothing like a vase of fresh flowers at the start of your working day to lift your spirits, too. (/Give you something to post on Instagram.)
