My New Office

Well to be fair it’s a table in the corner of the kitchen, but it’s my new desk space! and I do love a desk space! Despite arriving in Sydney with just a suitcase I managed to sneak a few things in that would help me feel at home, like this fab teatowel from Pintuck and a little something from my vintage union jack collection {to remind me where I come from}


I picked up two of these chairs for $19 each {a tenner to us Brits!} at Junktique, a great second hand store. Infact I also bought a side board, a fab sofa , a armchair and a huge mirror {but more on those later} A trip to Ikea found a frame for my teatowel and the perfect place to display some of my fab letter cards that I snuck into my suitcase from the lovely Cox & Cox


A little lick of paint and my chairs were tranformed…


and the view from my new desk isn’t bad either, it looks out onto the balcony. I’m thinking that I might set up a little desk area out there, how lovely and inspiring it would be to work outdoors this summer…

    I love the coral colour you used on this chair and on your bedside stool, was it custom made or did you find it? If the latter, do you mind please saying where, where, where??!
    Thank you!
    PS your polaroids are lovely.
