Operation Office

Now that the kitchen is mostly finished,  I am moving onto our next task: The office.

It was the first room we renovated, and well, it is rather uninspired and uninspiring. Luckily, as after most funds were sunk into the kitchen, the office only needs a coat of paint, some new carpet (never ever ever chose cheap carpet, its really shit), and some new furniture.

Given the rest of our house is painted in Dulux Hogs Bristle Half, this will be the base colour, and I am really loving Dulux Mangrove Leaf (which is a lot brighter in real life) for a feature wall on the window wall. All the trims will be Hogs Bristle Quarter.

Now to find some furniture. I really only need a small desk, and a bookshelf, but I am looking for something a bit different to the usual desk. Any ideas?

  1. You could personalize your office by lining the back of your bookshelves and desk surface with co-coordinating fabric or paper April? Amy Butlers favourite color is green and I'm sure she'd have something in her latest range that would fit right in with Mangrove Leaf!

  2. Ohhh, Rose, you are a smart cookie!

    I have actually been looking on Etsy at Amy Butler and Joel Dewberry (my two favouritest fabric designers)fabric.

    Now, please share your pictures
