Aline's Wonderfully Washi Taped
Home Office

Desktops – The Best of Readers’ Desks & Workspaces

Name: Aline Lorieri
Location: Gold Coast, Australia

Cute, colorful, and on a budget. Aline and her husband recently moved to a new apartment and set out to make their new house a home, with her sights specifically set upon setting up the home office of her dreams. She didn't let a modest budget stop her from imbuing her workspace with style uniquely her own, using IKEA furnishings as the canvas, washi tape as decorative "paint"...

We've been living in this new apartment for only two months and things weren't quite in their place yet. I couldn't wait to have my office done. It's my place, my cave, the place where I get freely creative, and I couldn't get too far with my creativity because I couldn't find anything around here. The day finally arrived, and I set out on a mission to clean and organize my office.

All of my furniture is from IKEA, and I treasure using my creativity to create something beautiful on a small budget! As you can see I have done my walls with washi tape (my addiction).

My little office is simple and clean. I still want to make some changes, hang some more wall art, rug, desk accessories, etc...
