How to Dress Your Desk

We've rooted around the creative workspaces of Liberty HQ in search of some desk-dressing inspiration

By: Charlotte Olby

Whether you have the luxury of a dedicated home-office or an inner-city cubicle, there are plenty of clever desk ideas you can employ to turn even the most cramped spots into organised spaces conducive to concentration. But the dream workspace isn’t just practical, it’s inspiring too, dotted with objects that spark creativity.

Case in point: the four desk set-ups employed by our Liberty creatives. We have everything from the working lunch desk through to the uber-organised. Here, they show us how they style their desk spaces for maximum inspiration.

The Ultra-Organised Desk

Janice Dwumfour, Former Interim Head of Retail Marketing

“Because most of my day is spent desk-bound – either working, answering emails or holding virtual calls, it is essential for me to have a clear space to work from with key essentials to hand. I like everything to have its own place and ensure my desk is left tidy at the end of the day. Tidy desk = tidy mind. I’m more traditionally minded to like to have a notebook and desk pad to jot down actions from meetings and I keep refreshed throughout the day with Byredo’s Black Saffron. The perfect pick-me-up, it’s citrusy but warm at the same time.”

The Creative’s Desk

Sebastian Masih, Art Director

“I would describe my desk as ‘beautifully chaotic’. Well, that’s my excuse anyway. Working on creative projects, I like my space to be buzzing with inspiration. I love materials, texture and colour and I like to be surrounded by things that engage the senses – items that are visual, tactile and aromatic. One rule: it must ALL be beautiful.”

The Working Lunch Desk

Lyndsay Conway, Head of Audience Development

“When I’m working from home, my kitchen table becomes my desk. Over time it has become a beautiful hybrid of carefully curated tonal stationary and cookware - I like everything to go together! I still like lunch to be a bit of an event, even when I’m working through it, so cooking something delicious in a sleek Our Place Always Pan and setting the table around my work is a daily event.”

The Beauty Desk

Rhea Cartwright, Head of Beauty Buying

“My desk is an extension of my mind – busy, occasionally chaotic and brimming with beauty products! By nature, I’m not very organised so I rely on a trifecta of good (and good-looking) tech, project management tools and a trusty Liberty-print notebook to keep me on track. I time block slots in my week for “deep work” and I always burn a Liberty Candle as I find it essential to keep me focused. As a night-owl, I need help in the mornings with copious cups of tea and Aromatherapy Associates Clear Mind Rollerball which perk me up instantly. My team always joke but before any meeting I always fluff my hair with an afro comb - there’s something about a hair jhuzz that makes me feel ready.”
