Declutter and organise: Working from home in style
Now more than ever, we appreciate the importance of establishing a routine and finding a perfect workspace within your home where you can focus on your university work.
From decluttering your desk to using a day planner and writing to-do lists, there are many processes you can use to make your home-working productive and your workspace inspiring.
We asked student Jemma Barnard, who is currently in the final year of our BA (Hons) Interior Decoration, Design and Styling degree, to create a moodboard with a few tips and tricks for creating a relaxing and organised workspace at home.

We asked Jemma to tell us a bit about why making a decluttered workspace was important to her.
"Having an organised and relaxing workspace is incredibly important to me. Not only does it help with productivity and keeping a clear mind, but it makes work more enjoyable. Give yourself enough space, with a few personal items that bring you joy. This is proven to improve wellness and allows you to maintain focus for a longer period of time. I hope you enjoy creating a little oasis of calm in your own home."
Another top tip for organising your day is to use a planner - you can download our printable home planner below. This is a great way of identifying and setting tasks for yourself throughout the day. By setting a clear outline of your tasks it will help you to prioritise your actions, feel organised, and stay mentally focused.
