I recently started working on my home office style as I felt that working in a plain, white room with nothing but a desk and a miniature couch just wouldn’t do. Cue Ikea for cheap but attractive furniture to fill out the office. In fact, I actually bought way more than what’s on this blog post but haven’t yet set everything but keep a look out for a post post on it very soon.
Mulig clothes rail
I wanted a clothes rail that went with the feel and aesthetic of the room as opposed to detracting from it. I’m also quite cow-handed (stingy in Portuguese) at times so I knew that I didn’t want anything expensive, I mean, all I’d be doing would be hanging clothes on it! I found the below in Ikea for only £7, leaving enough change to buy their Kafferep heart biscuits for my toddler daughter. Bargain!
I decided to add a coffee table at the bottom part of it as I didn’t want the bottom to look so empty. I bought the Lack coffee table at Ikea as well for £17. The space in the middle of the coffee table was then used as storage space.
I accessorised the set-up with items I already had but I’ll show you alternatives just in case you’re inspired by the look yourself.
The cream faux rattan baskets were bought in Asda quite a few years ago but you can still get them in places like Argos and Amazon. I thought the rail looked a bit sad and empty at the top so used my daughter’s floral head band as a finishing touch. If you’d like to look for something similar, Claire’s Accessories has some as well.
The shoes above are from Everything Five Pounds. I’ve never actually bought anything from there but if you’re looking for something cheap, it looks like the place to go! Mine are from Miss Selfridge but last season’s so not on sale anymore.
The fur stole is from Amazon and dirt cheap. It does come with a small caveat though in that you’d have to wait for about a month for a delivery but it works well if you’re in no hurry to do up your rail and room in general.
That’s it! I hope you enjoyed my way of styling my clothes rack. It’s certainly added a bit of life into an empty looking office so far. Next stop – My desk!
