Interiors Post - A Home Office

Monday, 22 February 2016

It's been a little while since I last posted on the old blog. A lot has happened in the last fortnight as we have moved house and began renovating what we have bought! All very exiting, although you are now more likely to find me with a pot of paint and a brush opposed to sitting down and blogging. However, my new home office is all up and running and although I am awaiting some finishing touches I wanted to share what I have done so far with you all.

We moved from a period cottage into a new build so with this home I have tried to create a contemporary feel as well as keeping it nice and homely. I have used lots of grey, white and black to create a timeless scheme. I hope you like it.

I really want to add a desk lamp and some art to the walls as well as other accessories. Any suggestions / links to cute office bits would be greatly appreciated. Please leave all ideas in the comments below.
