The view from here

Thought I'd turn around and take a snap. Tidied up my office this weekend and took this picture from where my office chair is. I realised I hadn't shown any more photos of where I slave away in my free time. Just kidding. Lousy photo but I'm actually quite proud of this small space. Everything in this room with the exception of the kilim which I have had for over 15 years was bought in a thrift shop, on eBay, Etsy, secondhand shop, fleamarket or created by me. Mind you I don't get to sit in the Grant Featherston Numero chairs that much as I'm always over here on the computer! I had the chairs reupholstered after I found them in a thrift store - is that cheating? Anyway just thought you'd like to see. Now if I just squeeze over to the other side of the room I could take another shot. Maybe next time.

where oh where did you find that b+w fabric???? its great!

Anonymous which one? :) The houndstooth is by Warrick Fabrics and is thankfully not a "to the trade only fabric". The trellis fabric is of course KWID but I got the pillow from decorative instincts on etsy while the busroll fabric is vintage and found at a fleamarket.
