home | our study update9.03.2015
yikes, I can't believe it's september already? excuse me while I go and dig out my knitwear. I'm secretly excited for jumper season but I can't believe we're heading towards autumn already!
do you remember that I wanted to redecorate my dining room? well it's not quite finished but we have made progress in turning it into our new study (hurrah) I thought I'd give you a quick update!
abel armchair | habitat c/o
orla kiely cushion | john lewis
rug | ikea
gold pineapple | john lewis
leaf side table | ikea
so this is a sneak peek at my reading area! our habitat armchair arrived and it's just perfect- not too big, not too small (I'm starting to feel like goldilocks!) it's nice and comfy and it's also wide enough for me to sit crossed legged or sprawl out with a book which was my main requirement! we really struggled with choosing an armchair as there was some gorgeous retro designs but I loved the scandi feel of this one... overall I think we definitely picked the right one for us.
I've set up a little side table and we moved the bookcase from our living room through into the alcove. I thought it would be nice to add a touch of colour to the chair so I chose some orla kiely cushions. I'm not certain what will happen with the existing ikea rug- we're tempted to add in something brighter but I quite like the clash of styles. (I'm dragging james to ikea this weekend to see what's new in- who's betting I'll come back with a load of plants and no new rug?)
we've just ordered some typography art prints for the walls and the other half of the room is mostly occupied with james desk and work area! once the last few things are in place I'll show your the rest of the room..
