Welcome to the very first post of our new series: Desk Stories! We’ll be taking a look at some of the most stylish desks and telling you the stories of the people who use them to help inspire you to make your workspace a pleasure to be in. First up, we have A DIY desk of dreams! Olivia from @lustliving gives us a look at her stylish workspace and what’s on her desk.

A creative location

Olivia’s workplace is situated in her garage renovation, which was completed last year just before lockdown. Together she and her husband have totally transformed a dark storage area into a beautiful room, creating extra space in their home and a clever location for a workspace.

That beautiful DIY desk

One of the reasons we love Olivia’s desk so much is that she made it herself for less than £100! Yes, we couldn’t believe it either! Once the garage renovation was complete. she struggled to find a desk narrow enough for the space, and so decided to make her own. This stunning fluted DIY desk is a genius project and you can follow along with her step-by-step here to make your own!

Less is more

Olivia’s desk style is minimal, contemporary and clean. We think it also has a touch of grecian style with the lust-worthy organic shapes, white porcelain, and pampas grass.

We love that her desk has all of her essentials without it feeling overwhelming or messy and of course, the highlight of pink from the chair is a way straight to our heart! This is a workspace we’d feel delighted to work in…and would struggle to leave!

What’s on her desk?

If you’ve been following Olivia over at Lust Living for a while now, you’ll know she’s a Martha Brook fan as much as we are of her and we LOVE seeing our stationery featured in her snaps.
