I’m very picky with wood tones too and Totem Road always has the perfect light wood. In terms of the actual styles - I selected twoIsabel Desks for our online team that has a handy draw perfect for storing and organising all our letters and accessories for the monogramming machines.
What do you love most about Totem Road?
My motto with furniture (& most things in life to be honest) is quality over quantity. I prefer to invest in pieces that are designed and made with purpose and can last for a long time. Totem Road do this so well, their designs are timeless, made sustainably and I love that the designs also compliment a range of spaces and interior styles.
What are your secrets to living an organised life?
My top tips:
Prioritise, prioritise, prioritise
Utilise to-do lists and a Diary to your advantage to manage your workload & schedule daily.
Always look ahead. Being proactive rather than reactive.
Set goals - personal, professional & financial. Create an action plan & small monthly tasks that help you get towards your big goals so that you ensure you tick them off.
Pick 1 day each week that you set aside 30 minutes or so to organise the small things. Meal Planning, Grocery List (I'm a fan of ordering online), Outfits for the week, Fitness Schedule, etc.
Learn to say no - your time is precious - don't over commit.
Overestimate rather than underestimate. Allow more time to complete projects or tasks rather than too little time. Having a buffer is key. Life can be unpredictable!
