Inside the Desktop of an Interior Designer
What we would do to be able to see the inner workings of an interior designer…Well, here’s the next best thing! We asked our community of Ivy Designers to give us a sneak peek into their brains through their desktops; from the meticulously pristine to the organized chaos.
A huge thank you to our lovely Ivy Designers for bravely sharing their beautiful desktops (even if they were a bit messy).
“Only the current files I’m working on for clients are on the screen. Once I’m done – they get filed. My computer gets back up daily by my tech obsessed husband, so I’m never worried about losing something.” – Ivy Designer K.M.
“Guinness, who is the ‘king of quite a lot’.” – Ivy Designer L.R.L.
“Just a few things I am currently working on but haven’t filed away yet.” – Ivy Designer K.W.
“Mine used to be so cluttered that you couldn’t even see a background. I have since cleaned it up after my 11-year-old son saw it and almost had a heart attack and my husband repeatedly said ‘HOW DO YOU FIND ANYTHING ON THERE?’ This is mine cleaned up, finally.” – Ivy Designer A.C.
“You guys will probably be really annoyed with me. I keep NOTHING on my desktop because I am paranoid about losing it! Everything is in the cloud!” – Ivy Designer S.M.B.
“I keep nothing on my desktop except a link to my business files and some awesome inspiring words. Clutter (even digital) makes me crazy!” – Ivy Designer L.M.
“I actually “cleaned” mine a month ago…” – Ivy Designer R.D.Z.
“Mine’s embarrassing…When the files start doubling up (as pictured) I know it’s time to clean up…In my defense, I rarely see my home screen as I always have several programs up and running at once.” – Ivy Designer B.S.
“I’m a ‘keep nothing on my desktop’ girl – just a pretty background! Everything’s organized in the finder in folders.” – Ivy Designer C.W.
“For the record, I stack all this in one week, click and drag photos, and then delete them once a week or file. I thought I was pretty damn organized until I saw all of these…” – Ivy Designer S.W.
“Just about everything gets filed in Finder or on the iCloud immediately. My desktop pic usually involves my next vacation…” – Ivy Designer J.C.
“Try to keep it nice and clean with a relaxing image.” – Ivy Designer S.S.
“You caught me on a very organized week! Usually my desktop fills up with screen shots, etc. until I can’t handle it anymore and I purge or stash to a folder. These baby blues literally save me/remind me why I’m busting my butt on some days!” – Ivy Designer A.S.
“This is like a peek inside my brain.” – Ivy Designer A.F.
“I’m obsessive about folders, so mine’s pretty boring. Just shortcuts to my Google Drive and some folders for when my husband inevitably saves his work on my laptop.” – Ivy Designer K.H.
“You don’t get much better than this well designed space. It is perfect in every way!”
“Hilarious. Maybe it’s time I clean up… even better that I’m on 3% battery!” – Ivy Designer C.H.
“My janky Windows 10 desktop until my Macbook gets a new hard drive…” – Ivy Designer L.G.
“Ironically, I cleaned my desktop a couple days before – it was a cluttered mess! This feels SO much more life-giving…”- Ivy Designer L.E.
