Office Space...little things

Little things...the details are what make decorating a room fun for me. I take a slow approach. I will be working in the office...then I decide to arrange things differently or to bring something in from another room.

















This lamp has a rice paper shade (flea market find).....with a pretty oversize Conso tassel (Tuesday Morning Outlet)....set on a (red) typewriting textbook (which is the same one I had in high school...Trader Bakers)...and there is the fabric ( Vogue Fabric booth at the Houston Quilt Show several years ago) which I draped over the window.

Black and White Office with Color

I love the idea of a black and white office.....but I really like color. I took color cues from my "Turtle Rose" quilt. I found the great orange chair, made the Rose Tile pillow, painted the little leaf much fun. It almost makes working in the office bearable.

Thrift Store Office


A trip to Trader Bakers yielded some great office additions. I found a student's hand copies of two of Thomas Weston's cadels....the letters L and Z. I attached them to the side of my black file cabinet with magnets. Aren't they lovely!

Thomas Weston's Cadels

One things leads to another.....


The black magazine holders (a previous thrift store find) look great on top of the file cabinet. I numbered white cards with some black vinyl numbers I had. The slinky has always been in the is important to my work!

Office Upcycle

I use the vintage hole punch in my art book work.....I love this new corner in my office....upcycling makes me happy!
