The view from here

Posted on Mon, 5 May 2008 by midcenturyjo


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.

is that a turkish rug?

I love the pillows , and as is art work.

Beautiful.

Thanks guys! It’s a work in progress. The rug IS turkish and the artwork is mine too. Hope the 3M hooks hold 🙂

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.
