What to put over my desk…

Originally I was planning on putting pegboard above the workspace in my office, but after being honest with myself, I’m not sure I’d actually use it to stay organised the way I do in my decorating fantasies. Sometimes it’s hard to be honest about these things when you fall in love with an idea, but I’m pretty sure that would be a waste of money for me.

Our office is narrow with a small window, so not much light gets in the room. It occurred to me that maybe it would be a good idea to hang a large mirror above the desk to help bounce some light around. Finding a good mirror is trickier than it seems, and it’s hard to know if I should go for an ornate or a simple frame. I’ve found this one, which is simple and fairly affordable, so I’m thinking of going for it. I’m just wondering if this is a boring idea? I feel like our office needs more oomph. I know I’m not showing a picture of the office, so that’s not much help. This is one of the last few things we need to get for the house, and I’m ready to be done with it already!

What do you think of these example rooms? I couldn’t find many examples of mirrors hung above desks, but I quite like these. Decisions, decisions.

    During my studies I lived in a room where the only possibility to put my desk was in front of a low window. A window without any curtain. When the night came I could see myself in the window as an reflection. It was like a mirror. Actually I’m not a narcissistic person but I always was a little diverted to see myself.

      Interesting! I suppose it could be quite a distraction! X
