The Green Room

Remember this post about getting older? Well it’s taking it’s toll as yet my home office is changing bit by bit too.

We started with lowering the ceiling by adding an extra trim and painting it white. This way the 3.45 m high ceiling doesn’t look that high. To create contrast Bo painted the walls in a beautiful soft green. As my office window is overlooking dense trees on the next door plot, the room lights up green anyway in summer. In winter it’s a dull grey room. Now it will be green all year round.

The wall with the pink wallpaper and shelves looks really odd right now but things will change as soon as I made my mind up for patio doors out to the garden yay or nay! There will be either doors with a bookcase build around it or there will be a build-in bookcase covering the whole wall. I need time to make my mind up.

I’ve replaced the pink pendant for a small white Leitmotiv Ribble pendant I got from Bol.com so now all the attention goes to the ceiling instead.

I’ve placed a Zuiver Buckle Head floor lamp in the corner next to my desk for extra light. I also got that one from Bol.com. I also got the jug that holds peonies FROM MY OWN GARDEN! from Bol.com. I love the efficiency of shopping in one place without driving, parking and traffic-jams.

I’ve made a pastel style guide with my favourite products over on Bol.com

    Ooh, tough decisions. The patio doors would let in a wonderful amount of light but then storage is precious too! The room is looking great already, the peonies look beautiful in that little jug. x
