Hi there! This week’s episode is all about our dream home offices. We’ve both spent a LOT of time dreaming and visualizing, so this episode is full of hopes and dreams. We also get back to our roots with some guilty pleasure treasures!
-Emma wants an office with a DOOR, lol. By the way, here’s a photo of Emma’s current home office. See more photos here.
-A photo of Emma’s “diaper dog” Love Love (aka Lovers). He’s a good boy!
-Elsie’s office struggles are currently related to not having a home office at all. If you work from home without a proper office space, I’d love to hear your tips and tricks! To make it even trickier, we also don’t have any dining room tables yet … but we will probably next month. Specifically, where do you keep your printer and your essential documents/files?
-Here’s a pic of Elsie’s former office (it was always a LOT messier than this). More pics here.
-Do you enjoy perusing stationery supplies just for fun? We do!
-Emma makes a good point that you may spend more time in your office than any other room, so prioritizing your office and making it beautiful, organized and functional makes a lot of sense!
-Here’s a photo of the modern room dividers Emma mentions as a solution for her no-door issues.
I found this image at IkeaHackers, but I am not sure that’s the original source. If anyone knows the original source, please let us know in the comments so we can link them.
-Elsie talks about open vs. closed shelves (in kitchen, but this applies to offices as well). If I had to choose 100% open or 100% closed, I would choose OPEN every time. But I think the best office or kitchen for me would be a combination of both open and closed storage!
-Elsie’s guilty pleasure treasure: Open Book by Jessica Simpson (10/10)
-Also loving the Libby app for listening to audiobooks for free!
-Emma’s guilty pleasure treasure: Seedlip non-alcoholic spirit.
Thank you so much for listening! :)) There is no mini episode this week. If you have topic requests for future episodes, we’d love to hear them!
P.S. We have been working hard to bring you a weekly transcript of our podcast, so that is coming soon!!
