Recently I redesigned my bedroom. One of my goals with the redesign was to make a new work space that I could use for gaming, writing, and crafting.
The key thing to find was a desk that would a) fit and b) give me useful storage and working space. After looking on Pinterest and Instagram I became pretty certain that I wanted the Micke Corner Work Station in white from Ikea.
I could not be happier with my choice!
I always love nosing about other people’s shelves and desks so I thought I would share a desk tour of my own.
On top of the desk I have created something of a Game of Thrones shrine featuring the books, a flying dragon and, of course, Jon Snow himself. I feel like this is the crowning glory of the desk. I mean, what could be better than a literal flying dragon above your desk??
On the shelves I have a few Funko Pops scattered about. The most special one is probably the Woody on RC funko on the left hand side, coupled with faithful Bullseye. But I also really love my Yuri!!! on Ice funkos and the Ouran High School Host Club ones. I still wish they would make funkos of the rest of the Ouran High School Host Club gang.
Behind my PC there is magnetic whiteboard (which was one of the big selling points of the desk). So far I’ve put up a few of the art cards I’ve got from Fairyloot and Illumicrate boxes. The art features characters from the Shades of Magic series, Cruel Prince and Beauty and the Beast. I’ve used my Game of Thrones magnets from Primark to stick them up (you might be sensing a bit of a Game of Thrones theme by this point).
In terms of books, I’ve stuck my favourites in easy reach. These include The Cruel Prince (surprise, surprise), The Watchmaker of Filigree Street, The Goblin Emperor and The Song of Achilles.
I have an All-in-One PC with a HDMI input so I’ve managed to hook my PS3 up to it, which is heaven. I’ve put Persona 5 and Kingdom Hearts -HD 1.5 ReMIX- on my shelf so they are in easy reach for a gaming fix. For PC games I’ve got my blue Xbox controller ready to go.
Sometimes, though, I might just want to watch a film or a TV series. For that I’ve popped Howl’s Moving Castle, The Hunger Games Trilogy, Fruits Basket Yuri!!! On Ice, Black Butler (Book of Circus), Ouran High School Host Club and Kingsglaive on another shelf. Howl’s Moving Castle is probably the film I re-watch the most.
I’ve also got my BB8 alarm clock, llama pencil pot and unicorn glasses holder on the desk itself.
All together, this desk represents all my favourite things and it feels perfect.
