Handsome & Playful Workspaces

July 18, 2011

This workspace is so handsome. I’m not usually one for leather, but this olive green tufted number is so good looking. I am big fan of colored cords. It transforms something cumbersome that we want to hide into a statement making accessory. If you do it right, which Fantastic Frank has undoubtedly accomplished.

All it takes are some small, well-chosen colorful accessories to make this predominantly white and wood room come to life with playful personality. Photographed by Pablo Zuloaga for Elle Decor España.

I really love this space. The neon orange chair and light are so much fun, and they do a fantastic job balancing out the neutral dark gray-brown wall. Aged empty frames as decoration and a place to pin up favorite photos complete this inspiring work area. Photographed by Pernilla Hed for Allt i Hemmet via design attractor.

A Jieldé lamp, an Eames chair with wood dowel base, an orchid, a window view. . . there are so many things right about this room! “Right” by my subjective standards that is. 🙂 The home of Courtney and Michael Adamo, photographed by Darrin Henry, via Design*Sponge.

Another lamp with a red cord! And I must have that black bird. Via My White Room.

This is clearly someone’s dream workshop. A generous desk, plenty of industrial-style lighting, a comfy spot to kick back and take a coffee break, plus this space is certainly not without some interesting details. I love the art leaned against the wall on shelving, and please do take note of the adorable little houses decorating the floor. Via Alvhem Mäkleri & Interiör.

So. Smitten. Lamp, rug, desk, door, I love it! Especially the desk lamp. Oh that is such a nice lamp. Via Alvhem Mäkleri & Interiör.

How are you doing this fine Monday? I’m feeling pretty good now that I’ve had some coffee. I have some slightly sad news regarding my bathroom remodel. It’s coming along just fine except I am going to be waiting for my new lights until they are no longer back-ordered. I hope to get them in early September. It’s an inconvenience for me, but really the worst part of it is that I’m going to have to wait till they are installed before I can share the room with you! There’s no way I’m going to unveil the room looking all snazzy except the revolting old lighting. So I’m afraid the wait continues. I know you are positively on the end of your seat, right? 🙂

    Well, I guess I will move from the edge of my seat and relax while eagerly awaiting your update on the bathroom remodel. Any chance you will give us a sneak peak at these “worth waiting for” light fixtures?
