A reader shares clever stor­age so­lu­tions.

Sec­ond-hand finds and re­pur­posed pieces helped Je­lena Anderson cre­ate a prac­ti­cal and well-or­gan­ised workspace in her liv­ing area. Je­lena, an in­te­ri­ors and prop­erty stylist, wanted “func­tional stor­age, light, some en­ergy in the form of colour and plants – and an in­spi­ra­tional quote never goes astray ei­ther.”

A trio of wall shelves was added to the workspace – great for dis­play and stor­age (they hold books, files and more). They also help to keep the desk free of clut­ter.

An eclec­tic mix of stor­age con­tain­ers like this wooden box keeps let­ters, sta­tion­ary and other of­fice para­pher­na­lia out of sight but still within easy reach.

A ce­ramic con­tainer adds colour and pat­tern to the space. It’s also a per­fect place for Je­lena to keep her wall­pa­per sam­ples, wrap­ping pa­per and floor plans for work projects.

The desk was made from an old pic­nic ta­ble found by the side of the road, cut in half and sanded back. The sec­ond-hand chair was re­vived with new upholstery.

Green­ery was an ab­so­lute must for the of­fice space. “Plants re­ju­ve­nate any cor­ner of your home,” says Je­lena.
