It’s actually the home office and as Boris doesn’t do admin I guess it now has become my room. It used to be a library when we first bought the house with a very wobbly bookcase situation a black tiled floor and a chipwood accent wall. I also edit my photo’s in this room, I blog in this room and I store all my Yvestown memorabilia in this room. If I’ll ever win an award, I’ll definitely keep it in this room.
I’m typing this post from that desk which was a Marktplaats find. I painted it Farrow & Ball Light Blue and replaced the knobs with porcelain knobs from Zara Home. Bo made that portrait of me a few years ago when I was a few kilos heavier. I still love it though even though I don’t look my happy self, it’s still a face I sometimes carry. Lisa Hannigan signed that record for me and The Little Women print is by Emma Block, I still need to frame it. The bag is an oldie from Meri Meri I call it my schoolbag as it holds books, pencil cases and other junk.
I also painted that cabinet in Farrow & Ball Light Blue and it’s stuffed with my books, paint, magazine features but also books written by my friends. I still need to organise and display everything a bit better but for now it will do. It’s my happy memories cabinet.
These IKEA shelves where left over from when this room functioned as a shop, I used to display all the cards I had for sale on those shelves. I didn’t want to remove them and leave a ton of holes so I filled them with paper things that inspire me. There’s also a table in the middle of the room but that still needs styling, I also need a rug for this room and a new lamp. When all that is done I’ll give a full room tour with before and afters.
