I’m always on a budget. For a homewares obsessive like me, that’s often an interesting conundrum. I’ve learnt over my years of decorating, though, that I can still revamp my rooms regularly; I just have to get savvy and look at creative ways to make it all work (and trust me when I say that I like to update regularly).
Brought to you by Nuffnang and The Reject Shop.
My office was the last room in my new Melbourne pad to get a lift. I’d done a few of the other spaces already but blogger HQ was in dire need of an update. Enter The Reject Shop, who – with a little imagination – helped me create a cheerful little office to call my own.

The Reject Shop has an ever-changing range of bargain buys, and I went into this homewares hunt with my thinking cap on; trying to use items in new and unexpected ways.
First stop, cork boards. What I love about these is that you can create your own art. I like to display images from mags that I like (products, styling shots and more). Throw in some cards from businesses I’ve worked with on the blog, some family photos and other assorted memorabilia and you have your own heartfelt works of art that you can update as you please.
I printed out some inspiring quotes that I love from the net and popped them in black frames. These were only a few dollars each and they look great when you lean them against a wall. The horse head you see in the photo; it’s one half of a set of book ends, while the vases the flowers are in are mason jars – also only a few bucks and really versatile! PS: How nice is the black candle? It smells divine.
I picked up a few mugs too. There’s a really adorable one with a knitted slip on it; very cute for the colder months, don’t you think? I like the idea of using mugs as pencil holders – and the blue pencils from The Reject Shop are a nice pop of colour (the world needs to get back to using pencils I reckon). I also happen to have a giant sweet tooth, so the glass jar filled with marshmallows was a must-do!
Winter is all about subdued texture, so I had to grab a knitted ottoman. You can use it to stack magazines or books on, or as a footrest when you want to kick back and relax. The wastepaper basket and notebooks are also from The Reject Shop – and I love the quotes on the front of them!
I’m really chuffed with how the office has come together. It’s light, bright and didn’t break the bank. If you want to stay in the loop with regard to news from The Reject Shop, click here to check out their website and become a savvy shopper.
