a peek into my office


having a great place to work is important to me. It is hard for me to be continuously creative in a bad space or in a bad place. Whatever I put here needs to work with the whole main floor as this is one big open space that has the TV, small living area and dining area. My office is on one side of this open room. The mid century desk was my Dad's and I use it for my etsy inventory.


I also run a business that has very few expenses so I decided to treat myself to a new piece of furniture to help with taxes and make my space even more enjoyable. I found this little armless loveseat in the window of Rubin's in Milwaukee. Unfortunately they would not sell me the one they had and I had to wait my 8-10 weeks to get my very own.


This is scrabble fabric which I love. Seems like a perfect piece for a font designer. And it gives me a second spot to read and think in my office area. It is very comfortable too which is important.


This is the rest of my space. Old rug from IKEA, really, really old Techline desk and file cabinets. I had 2 and found another 2 at a garage sale last Summer, new desk chair. The foot stool was a garage sale find and I recovered it in an IKEA dot fabric. The lovely chandelier came with the condo. And while I would never have sought out a conservative glass chandelier I love the contrast to my sleeker pieces.

And this is where I work, merrily, happily, daily.
