my creative space

i recently had some new house shots done by the fab fi mims, and i’m going to show them to you room by room. i’ve been emailed a few times about where i got various things from, so this should be a fun way of sharing some secret sources and talking you through my space!

in the case of my desk area its also a bit of a time capsule! its not going to look like this for very much longer now that my desk is movin’ on out and up to my studio: lil desky’s leaving home! and do i need to tell you how excited i am about working AWAY FROM HOME. like a grown up!

the actual desk is from ikea, and that frosted glass panel is very useful! the chair is from ikea too, but i made a fancy cover for it using a pattern by yvestown.

behind my desk is this cozy little corner, for sitting and day dreaming in. above are prints by gerry and joe simboli, and sanna annukka. cushions from ikea and now-closed etsy sellers.

stay tuned for more fresh house photos and eventually, photos of my NEW studio space (yay!)

decorate! pilgrim
i haven’t done a decorate! pilgrim post in a while because, well basically i’m lazy.. and fussy. it takes a lot of trawling through polyvore, and my unconventional tastes mean it takes three times as long for me to find things i like. but after some nice comments on my previous post i made some effort and guess what? i had fun! so feel free to get bossy in the comments any time, readers. its good motivation!

this edition of decorate! pilgrim is created around the J print from my alphabet series. i have a major crush on the yellow and green color combination at the moment. its so fresh and sunny. it’s quite the turnaround considering i used to hate yellow and green together: australia’s colors are “green and gold” and so i’ve seen an awful lot of ugly olympic uniforms in dark green and yellow. but a lime, or kelly green and a warm yellow is truly a thing of beauty, am i right?

everyone knows the best work is done inside of a daffodil! this office space would never be dull and uninspiring.

what do you think of this color combination? is there a room you most like here – or are you living amongst some yellow and green already?
