MY OFFICE[:]

My kitties, 

It’s about time I write this article, really, because if things go well I will have an office far from my home in 2014 and that is a great new because I have to say that there are some days where I don’t go out and I find it a little scary. In the meantime, to make the « I have to work at home » task a little bit more fun, I rearranged a room just for me where it’s nice to be and work. I meet myself there every morning at 9.30 and that’s where I can « torpedo » the space. Before that I didn’t really have a room for myself, I’d spread into the living room, the lobby and even the bedroom, it was my way of marking territory. I’m kind of a tornado, I « vandalize » the space I’m in. When said like that it can be scary but I’m sure you see what kind of person I can be… So since I started my own business, I was lucky enough to be able to « lemonadize » a room of my little home. Let me show you…

Living with a unconditional of uncluttered lines and white walls, I wanted my « office » to look a little bit more like me, and I think that year after year, yellow and pink are the colors that made a prominent place into the list of my desire. I find them daring and fresh as a decoration choice, completely unexpected and yet awesome. I remember a while ago I found the Broken Arm store and in the basement, they have a yellow mustard carpet, that is just perfect (not easy to keep clean but so beautiful). So it’s quite naturally that I chose this pink (Calamine) and yellow (Babouche) from Farrow & Ball for the most curious of you. On this image you can also see the first two boxes of the designer box, I highly recommend it, I found the concept ingenious and original for the design lovers on a budget. No need to take a subscription, you can buy your box one by one and even see them in real currently at the Bon Marché… And besides the signed object you have inside, I am fan of the packaging in which I store all my inks and other paints…

Here is the « inspiration » corner, it is quite the place where I curl up in the morning to do my pinterest round and my daily reading of blogs and other websites, where I drink my tea while scratching the belly of Frida the cat… I fell in love for this chair, I found it sublime, I loved it at first sight, at first click even. « Click » because it comes from the website Made.com, concept founded in London by 3 design passionates that wanted to generalize beautiful and Creative furniture, with a capital C to the most people. So they cut off expenses and intermediaries between designers and consumer. The delivery takes a little bit more time than usual because the website gather the orders together before sending the production. But it’s worth the wait! It’s so beautiful!

The covering up a piece of furniture with cork scale DIY will be around here very soon…

My inspiration wall… I guess you’ve seen this view on Pinterest a great number of time and I dreamed about it when I went to NY I brought clipboard from Staples at 0,90$ each, it would have been stupid to go without them and I screw them to the wall… Another detail, my pile of sweet magazines Milk and Muteen from another time, that help supporting my shelf (ah resourcefulness!)… And stuck up there, a little picture of myself at 1, in order not to forget who I am and where I come from…

And here is a last picture, will you be able to find the cat that squat my sweet chair Made.com? Little zoom on my post calendar (yes, I know what I am going to talk to you about 1 month in advance… and if you see the brow picture I have work!), my Ipad with my electronic diary and my Moleskine because we never know… Just so you know, I did a huge cleaning before taking these pictures because on my everyday life, the lemonade studio is more like a war scene…
