I’ve worked from home for a long time now – there are ups and downs, but one of the biggest ups has completely passed me by… until now! That’s the ability to create a working space which is beautiful, personal, and inspires you to get up to get to work every day! I have no before pictures of my office, but I can describe it to you and you’ll understand why my before photos are somewhat lacking. Picture light beigey-yellow walls, light beige carpet, dark blue curtains with a splodge pattern on them, a dark purple/blue desk covered in a mountain of paperwork, two birch IKEA Billy bookcases full to the brim with magazines and books, and a second desk in birch, slowly collapsing, covered in everything from signed autographs to games, folders, papers and ornaments. I hated it.
I’ve always wanted something light, bright, and airy, and over the past couple of weeks I’ve transformed this room with the help of my family into my ultimate dream space! I’m not going to unveil it yet because it’s not quite finished, but here are a few little sneak-peeks…

Looks lovely so far. Hopefully you will do lots of inspired new work in there!
Thank you! I feel very energised but unfortunately some of that is being sapped by my hideous lounge and kitchen! The lounge is full of new kitchen stuff and my kitchen is half demolished!
I feel exactly the same way when my home is a mess, I can’t concentrate on anything. Good luck with the renovations, hopefully it’s quick and painless!
Thank you! 😊
The sneak peeks are gorgeous. I LOVE that light fixture. Everyone needs a personal space all their own!
