Creating an office nook on a budget

Creating an office nook on a budget


When Rachel from @scandilane_ and her husband got the keys to their newly built Melbourne home, Rachel got a chance to get her style on.
Rachel is a big supporter of small businesses and I've been fortunate to collaborate with this beautiful lady for quite some time.
Her love for interior decor and styling shows throughout her Instagram newsfeed, and I'm sure you'll fall in love with her photos and content.
Rachel is a full time working mum, she loves to keep fit, and is a big coffee lover. She shares her beautiful style throughout her home and gives you inspiration along the way. You may even notice a few Pick a Pear wall art prints displayed with many lovely decor items from other small businesses.
Recently Rachel created a study nook on a tight budget. With only a small 2x2 metre space in her home, she wanted a working area with lots of storage and a place to display her favourite things.
In this space she shows us how to create a few different looks, and how to display some of her favourite Pick a Pear wall art prints, along with other items in her home. It just goes to show, you don't have to spend a fortune to achieve a great end result.
When you create a nook or office space either at home or at work, ensure you utilise the space, make it functional, but also remember to keep it simple and clutter free. Less is usually best. I'm pretty sure Rachel's family are loving their new study nook.

Handy Hint!
Use natural colours in small spaces. If you are repainting go for natural colours such as white, light grey, cream or beige. Smaller items like vases, flowers and artwork can give that splash of colour. These too are usually inexpensive items that can be changed around to create a new look.
Get your DIY on!
Using these High Gloss Photo Shelvesfrom Bunnings is a fantastic way to displays your favourite artwork, photos and decor items. They are easy to install and are available in 3 different lengths. Rachel used the 600mm length shelves in her study nook.
Below Rachel shows you two different looks using the same homeware items.
You'll be amazed on how easy it can be to transform a space using various items like artwork, vases, books, and greenery.

Before choosing a desk, work out what you are going to use it for. If it's just for computer work then go with something compact with a draw or two underneath for stationery.
Avoid having everything on your desk for a clutter free look. Rachel chose this desk from Officeworks with a single long draw underneath, and for extra storage she went with some white open shelves with boxes to keep everything tidy and in it's place.

I hope this gives you some fresh ideas on how to create a study nook in your own home.
