I’m bummed I haven’t got a house yet, so I’m putting on my day dream hat to inspire me to keep looking.
In Australia you as a pretty strict rule can’t modify rental houses. You can’t paint them or anything. So chances are any place I rent will be plain carpet or wood floors with white walls. I want to keep my office pretty simple, so that works for me. I’m going with black, white and chrome.
I need enough space to store a shit-ton of books (I can’t help it, I love my tiny fantasy and occult pseudo library!), some shelving for file folders, a filing cabinet (which is in the desk I want, score), a hefty desk big enough for all my crap + dual monitors and a whiteboard. Should be easy enough to do! I want to be sure not to over clutter the room, as my books and roleplaying stuff will likely do that by itself due to sheer volume.
Remember this desk? It’s the one I shot my “Boss” set for Cosplay Deviants on as Balalaika from Black Lagoon. My current housemate has this desk and it’s amazing with the duel level glass top. I can store most of my stuff underneath the glass and keep the top for work space. The bookcase should be enough for all my personal fantasy, scifi, occult and study books as well as some fun clutter like the terrarium below. If I manage to get a place thats really spacey, maybe I’ll get two of the bookcases. Can never have enough!
Sticking with my black x glass x chrome theme I couldn’t go past these Star Wars lamps (although IDK if they are in stock anymore *tear*) I’m going to have one wall of the office as my inspiration wall, full of shiny things to make it less… officey because work, boo :p I’ll have the small bookcase right in the middle and fill it full of all my roleplaying stuff and figurines. I found this terrarium that looks like it would be a perfect dice holder for my ton of dice. Should make a nice colorful center piece.
Over the bookcase I’ll have these wonderful pictures by HeyMonster, who has just done a new Ellen Ripley I think I’ll have to add to the list. My office is going to look awesome! 🙂
