As one of my favorite sayings goes... being afraid of color is like being afraid of being happy. When choosing paint swatches for our company's new building, I decided on a bold pink color to match the upholstery on the mid century modern style chairs that came over from our old studio.
My workmates handcrafted this amazing desk for me, armed with a skillsaw and drawings I gave them with birds and scrollwork (inspired by a piece I fell in love with at Anthropologie). The top of the desk is also handmade, covered in a sheet of galvanized metal, giving it a modern edge. I seriously have a mad crush on this desk!
The oversized corkboard for my wall was also custom built. Perfect for displaying projects, and for creating an inspiration board.
I always feel inspired coming into work, surrounded by things that inspire me. My walls are usually a reflection of the current project I’m working on. I often tack up long strands of ribbons to clip artwork into floating galleries of all of the new designs strung together. The rest of my décor is an ecclectic mix.
There’s a fantastic chandelier that hangs in front of Moroccan inspired embroidered curtains, alongside Chinese folk art paintings. I think Betsey Johnson said it best, "if you love it and it is beautiful, then it goes with everything else you love and is beautiful".
I love that there are no boundaries when it comes to how everything is arranged in my office at work, the creativity flows so easily. I’m definitely in my happy place.
