my place and yours : blog hq

Ok so it's possible I'll regret saying to myself when I started playing My Place and Yours not to stage anything, "Keep it real!" I do like real. So I shouldn't care right? It's just I also like clean and well... anyway, here goes... my Blog HQ yet to see any Spring cleaning!


This room is shared with my partner who hates clutter (I don't mean to clutter things it just happens). The first shot reflects his no fuss decorating style! Complete with Homer Pez dispenser and paperwork - blah! It just so happens that this is also where our computer lives, therefore where I blog from. Not so inspiring huh?

Part of the reason for the no fuss look is because my partner spent a good part of the past 18 months freelancing from home so this desk kind of became his, we used to share it but my stuff was overtaking and that wasn't really fair.

So I got my own desk. With much more clutter than his.

See my little buddy above my very cluttered inspiration board keeping a watchful eye on things? Millie also often naps under the desk on the little cushion with my very first (and currently only) crochet blanket. See? Millie is a super buddy to have around Blog HQ.

Hurrah for real and not staged, I say! Looks like you've got the compromise thing happening pretty well with the fella and the cat. And I love your type of clutter... pah to people who don't like clutter I say. (Well, within reason).

Absolutely - it should be real ! But my house is on the market so is looking pretty staged at the moment. Had to get rid of my big squashy sofa and buy smart looking (but uncomfortable sofa and matching chair!)

Love your area and your kitty!

Fabulous space for an HQ! Love that you have a down-to-work space and a separate computer space... not so distracting. K x

Cute room! I have an office space in my apartment that looks quite similar, except my clutter has exploded all over the room :(

Good on you for being able to keep it all contained - I wish I was so organised!

Clutter happens!
Sometimes it takes over.
But neither of your desks looks that bad yet!

Ah! It looks LOVELY!!!! I think that's neat, actually. Those neutral walls make it look serene and organised, even the cluttery parts! Loving the little snooze-room under the desk... and loving the His and Hers contrast too! xx

oh that is too cute - decorated only with a Homer pez dispenser - love it! Such a boy thing. I was actually just blogging about the latest contribution mine has made to the aesthetics of our place - hideous! At least Homer has some style!
I love your space too, you do well to keep it all confined to your desk and not spread it all along the windowsill and floor and everywhere! And Millie - so precious!

My hubby is a neat freak and my computer / sewing space drives him a little mental - it is how I know that he loves me I reckon
