Where I Blog

If you’re a blogger, you know how important it is to have a space in which you feel comfortable and creative and inspired to write. Your space should be energizing and reflect the kind of person and blogger you are. Some bloggers like a calm, quiet, space for writing; others thrive in a space that that may look chaotic and messy but perfectly suits their style. Bloggers write in spacious home offices, nooks and crannies, outside by the pool, and in restaurants and cafes. The great thing about blogging is that you can do it anywhere you can take your laptop or tablet!

Earlier this year, I redecorated my home office. The office, untouched since I bought my condo five-and-a-half years ago, was a collection of old furniture and temporary solutions (and a large picture and window covering that I found out nobody liked!) I wanted my new space to be modern and chic and incorporate two love seats I inherited from my mom. I envisioned a place to write, read, watch TV, and display books, objets, photographs, and artwork that represent me and what I value. I also wanted a space to display some of my jewelry and accessories samples from Stella & Dot.

I got exactly what I wanted and more! Ariana Smetana of artVIA helped me update my space to reflect my personality and style, and I couldn’t be happier! I am working on a before and after post, but for now, here’s a picture I posted on a Tumblr site called Where Bloggers Blog:

  1. super pretty! I would love having a special place to blog.. I blog in the kitchen, on the desk in the living room, on the couch in the living room, occasionally my bed (when my lille dog is still sleeping and I dont have the heart to wake her up). We have just started a huge project turnign a hallway/library into an office and I cannot wait to be finished!

  2. Thank you, Trine. I still can’t believe I this room is in my house! It sounds like you will get a place of your own soon. I look forward reading about it and seeing the new space. How long will it be till you’re finished? You will love having a place that’s just for you (and your little dog, I bet.) 🙂

  3. I love this room. I remember seeing your decorating befores and afters a few months ago, and your designer did a beautiful job!
