This reminds me of my first flat. Classic Victorian house interior with an original fireplace, books in the alcove. However I wasn't stylish enough to have those wonderfully chic grey walls with high white accents.
Make it yourself desk. Two ikea expedit 4 shelf organizers and a cut to fit sheet of melamine board. liquid nails and good day- 120 dollar oversized custom desk. IDK if I'd use IKEA stuff. Maybe the drawers & such from Target.
Fair warning, this is an extremely lengthy process. I suggest you do this chapter by chapter throughout the semester. If you try to do it all one week before your exams you won’t get halfway through one class in time, let alone finish all of it.
