Why is a Raven Like a Writing Desk...

This blog has not only given me the ability to express all my life passions in one place, but it’s also given me so many amazing opportunities that I would have never previously dreamed of. As my seriously appreciated workload increases {Idle hands are the devil’s handiwork, oh the trouble you’ll get into – Words of wisdom from LeAnn Rimes}, I’m finding it increasingly difficult to organize all the new clutter I’ve recently accumulated, since I currently reside in a two bedroom apartment the size of most people’s living rooms. 

Over the next few months, I will be starting my new apartment search. Requirements: A bigger kitchen with wayyyyy more counter space, a balcony that doesn’t have a solid brick wall view and an office. The kitchen and the office are really key, since I got a little selfish with the balcony demand {I have a second balcony off of my living room that has a great view… well, behind the power lines that are literally within arms reach. Code violation? Probably.}. Since my newly accumulated massive kitchen inventory will surely fill my new kitchen space {that I really hope is fairly large!}, I still need a home for my laptop, mountains of paperwork and well, everything else that I can’t find a home for. 

And so begins the search for the perfect writing desk…

I also need a new desk... I think I am going to try to find an antique.

Have fun apartment hunting!

These photos are great! That's so exciting you're looking for a new place and will be setting up an office!

I just bought a white desk as well for a small office in my already teeny tiny apartment :) Found a great one at Ikea. Having that little section for yourself to be constructive and focused is crucial. Hope you're lucky in finding the perfect one for you! I'll keep my eyes peeled for some nice desks and will send links to some suggested sites if you'd like :)

Oh, I could have written this exact post! I'll be hunting for an apartment in the new year too and one of my requirements is a good kitchen now that I spend so much time baking and cooking. Also required: space for my desk! Love the photos you posted for creative space inspiration. Good luck with your search! Happy New Year!
