Gone are the holidays, the sand that tickles your toes, the sea spray, the endless afternoons lounging in the sun. But who cares? At The Socialite Family, we embrace the new school year with pleasure and enthusiasm. Because, even if our children sometimes dread going back to school, we think that they should prepare for it at home in the best possible way. Beginning by reorganising our interiors and our little ones’ workspaces! In this article, our media has put together just for you the 5 children’s desk corners that make us want to move in this September. So many peaceful and reassuring retreats for your little ones. Like the vintage corner designed by Darya Kopp. A wooden school desk that reminds us of our school days. More ornate, but nevertheless amazingly simple; the one seen at Chrysoline de Gastines’ home. A wooden plank cut to size and integrated into the architecture, enhanced by coloured wallpaper. Or how to turn a space-saver into a stylish spot, combining contemporary and retro-inspired pieces. For lovers of minimalism, take inspiration from Caroline Gomez: focus on the details. You can keep the workspace to a minimum – the classic chair-table combo – but remember that your child needs to feel comfortable there. So display her drawings, take care in the choice of her shelves – and their materials – and other small storage units! The storage will contribute in its own way to the decoration while allowing you to conceal the everyday clutter. Useful containers in the form of small colourful baskets in Andrea Millet’s room. For an organised and stimulating space, perfectly illuminated for working by natural light! Finally, if your older children also need help with their studies, do as Alexandra Diez de Rivera does and opt for a shared desk. An old workbench, a made-to-measure piece or one being diverted to a different use, but which is wide enough to easily accommodate two chairs.
