Sleek and Feminine Workspace
Hi Friends! This week we took inspiration from Real Living, a Swedish Interior Stylist and Visual Merchandiser. We love this office space because it’s sleek, clean and feminine. A no-clutter space that would be great for any #girlboss. As always, we’re big fans of the neutral colour palette that keep this space modern and refined.
In our attempt to replicate this look, we’ve changed the aesthetic a bit to reflect the current high street offerings, but we think we’ve done a good job in keeping our recreation faithful to the spirit of the original design. Let us know what you think!
As always, you can click on any number or hyperlink to purchase your favourite items.
We love how simple and functional the desk is in the inspiration look. It’s subtle, but it sets the tone for a clean design, as we think nothing feels and looks quite as good as minimalist design. Luckily this look can be achieved at a very low cost! We’ve found similar designs in Ikea and Wayfair.co.uk that won’t break the bank!

- Ikea.co.uk Godvin/ Linnmon, White, £45
- Wayfair.co.uk Hokku Designs Style 2 Writing Desk, £55
- Ikea.co.uk Besta Burs High-gloss White Desk, £150
Finding a chair that would help replicate the inspiration chair proved to be the trickiest part of this recreation. Just two months ago, West Elm carried a chair just like the inspiration one, but sadly it no longer does. Luckily, it still has some nice chairs. Two of the chairs in our selection are from West Elm, but we’ve also found other alternatives that we think would work well with the space. We’ve even included an especially funky chair from John Lewis (number two) that we think would look super cool in this office space!

Just because it holds rubbish doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be beautiful! Right?! We found some really delicate waste bin designs that we think would work really well with the office space design. Our personal favourite is the Habitat design numbered one above.

When it came to looking for decorative desk objects, we kind of just went with it! We’ve put together a collage of objects that we think would really finish off the look well. We added a lot of gold-accented items to tie together the rubbish bin and chair hardware with the rest of the look. We also added a cushion that would be a great alternative to the cushion in the inspiration look!
