I've been in our new gaff for five months now and one of the first rooms I had to get organised was the office. I'm one of those people that needs a specific place to blog, work and create so that's what I've created.
Prior to our move, I had a Craft Room (see here) but this time round I wanted a cleaner and more grown up space.
I decided to go for a white, pink and rose gold/copper theme this time round. Shock horror- a blogger that likes pink and rose gold!?!?!
There's still some crafty features to the room- you can take the girl out of the craft room but never the crafting out of the girl! My office chair is the same one as before- I just spray painted it copper! I love that chair and there's nothing wrong with it so with a bit of spray paint it fits perfectly with the aesthetic of the room. I also spray painted the mason jar on the windowsill and my hole punch too.
My desk is from the MALM range at IKEA and as plenty of depth to it, meaning I can spread my crap around when I'm making things and have two laptops on the go if I'm editing photos and videos simultaneously. I'm a multi-tasking wizard!
Candles- No 9 is from Primark, floral one was gifted
Rose gold flower- Daphne Rose
These cats were made by my very talented Nan! She's recently had to go into a home and wanted all the family to have a piece of her pottery. I thought the cats were pretty fitting seeing as I'm called Kat and they're a lovely reminder that she has carried down her crafting passion to yours truly!
The office also doubles up as a guest room when friends and family come to stay but when it's not being used as a bed, it's a comfy day bed covered in fluffy cushions!
Fairy Lights- eBay
Mohair cushion- Matalan
Copper Cushions- John Lewis
Velvet Cushions- Matalan
Chris' wardrobe also lives in here as I may have completely filled the built in master wardrobe... la la laaaaa...
In the very corner of the room I've shoe horned in my beloved IKEA chair which is a perfect reading nook; with a foot stool tucked behind it if I really feel like stretching out. The rest of the time the stool houses Old Bear- my very first ted who is a little worse for wear but nonetheless a priceless possession.
I'm really pleased with how my office has turned out and it's proved to be a perfect space for me to create and work. The view out the window is great and offers a lot of light in the afternoons, making this space perfect for blog photography too!
I've got some more room re-vamps in the pipeline with the next one being the living room so stay tuned for that as well as some home upcyclng DIYs also so watch this space.
