In 2014, when it was time to jazz up our home after our year-long renovation, there was one element of my room that I was particularly eager for: my desk. Over the last seven years, my bedroom hasn’t simply been “my bedroom”. It’s been my study quarters and, more recently, my office space. Trying to find a balance between bedroom, office, storage and library hasn’t been easy over the years. It felt like every few days I was cleaning up the scatter across my desk or re-filing documents. No matter how many times I stored away books and journals, they always seemed to stack up and cop an elbow. But despite the frustration and the restorations I’ve endured, it’s still my little sanctuary.
