cozy desk setup (wfh, budget friendly) ✿ links!



Hi friends! I've gotten some questions recently about my work from home desk setup, so I wanted to make a quick blog post where you can find all of the links in one place. :)


Creating a workspace that meets your needs is so important - for me, that means a combination of both functional and cozy! After a lot of experimenting and moving things around, I realized that my favorite work environment is a clean, minimalist desk setup with lots of fun, personal, colorful wall art. I need elbow room and minimal distractions in my immediate surroundings, but I also want to be able to express myself and make the space feel homey!


My desk setup incorporates functional items, things I've collected over the years, and some WFH splurges (hehe) - but for the most part, it's pretty simple and budget-friendly! I've also linked a YouTube video I made walking through the space to give you a closer look and honest reviews of everything. Let's dive right in! :)
