Home office makeover

For the past 48 hours, we’ve been hard at work redoing my home office…or as I like to lovingly refer to it – my studio. For months, I had put off re-designing it. Not really sure why? I think¬† I was scared I would make a mistake but finally I worked up the courage and tackled it. Chris devoted some of our budget to it and voila – a NEW creative space for Grace & I!!! Check it out…

Now Grace and I have a space to craft together. She loves her new “big girl” table!

The decor is a blend of new pieces from Ikea and old items I’ve collected from various antique and thrift stores.¬† I like the contrast between the clean white lines and the imperfection of the found objects.

Now this room feels like me!

Do you have a special place in your home where you create?

Have a beautiful Wednesday!

xo,

p.s. Don’t forget…we are off to Greece on Wednesday! If you missed our other “trips” catch up here and here.

Love your desk

My desk has been bothering me. It was full of lovely things but it felt messy and unorganized…sound familiar?

Something had to be done.

While Grace painted outside, I cleared off the entire surface and started over.

I knew the vintage chalk board that I found antiquing needed to hold court as my inspiration board, so that went up first. With a little time and lots of moving objects around, it slowly fell into place.

I’m especially fond of my sting of inspirational images…thanks to Artful Blogging and Boho magazine.

Tomorrow I have to clean off the blackboard…it has far too much math on it for my taste. I just noticed this in the pictures.

I think some lovely poetry would do nicely.

How’s your desk looking? Does it need some love?

xo,

Ivy
