OFFICE7I’ve been doing  spot of decorating (with the help of my sister) and rearranging in my office/studio. It’s been a long time coming since I decided to stay in this room permanently and not move back into the loft. For one thing my two very large printers won’t fit up the revamped spiral staircase! There will be pics of the stairs soon.

It’s a large, bright room with a window and a set of patio doors with a balcony which an added bonus in the Summer. It’s been painted all white again with new Ikea Enje roller blinds which are so stupidly inexpensive, it’s amazing that they can make them for so little. It cost me £72 for four blinds, two for the patio doors and two for the window! Unfortunately they don’t do them larger than 140cm wide hence having two at the window. I also had to cut them down which was a tad tedious but I got there in the end.

The Melltorp tables in the first pic are also from Ikea and again they are a very good price, it cost a grand total of £100 for three to form the ‘L’ shape! There may be an Ikea hack involving the tables but I haven’t decided whether to do it or not. I’ll keep you posted.

OFFICE8 My idea was to zone the room, a desk/work area and a chilling out and relaxing area. To the right of the tables is my Robin Day sofa bed (pictured above), Eames chairs and a little something extra which will be delivered next Tuesday. I can’t wait and all will be revealed soon. Let’s just say it’s Eames and it holds a lot.

It isn’t totally finished yet though (who said “no surprise there”!?) because I will be doing something a bit special on the chilling out side of the room, it involves plywood and maybe some lighting. Hopefully that will be finished in a few weeks time so watch this space.

I’ve been a very busy bee lately and I haven’t been paying enough attention to my obsessive little world! I’m very sorry for that but hopefully there will be a completely new revamp around these parts in the new year. 

I’ve been busy making lots of geometric decorations and tags as you can see above, hope you like them.

Anyway, have a very Merry Christmas everyone!


I’m buying something for my office/studio. I’ve wanted one for quite some time now and I’ve been totally obsessing about getting one over the last few weeks. I’ve missed out on a couple on the dreaded Evilbay but this one is an absolute corker! More pics soon. Now what could it be?…

Happy New Year my Obsessive ones! A bit late I know but I literally haven’t stopped…well maybe for a bit of tweeting and Instagramming…Hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and a great New Year. 2012, whatever happened to 2011!? Not a great year to be honest and I was glad to see the back of it. It was a fantastic year for my design work ( apart from being blatantly ripped off! )  but not the best year health wise. I did manage to give up smoking ( after a cancer scare but all was OK thankfully ) and I’m still not smoking nearly nine months later. I really never thought I would ever give up and I smoked a lot! Believe when I say that if I can do it then anyone can!

As you can see from above I do have a few new pieces of gorgeousness. 2011 was a great year for bargains including the unit which, as you may have read before, I managed to get for £37.70! It really has become a very usual piece of furniture. The Jielde lamp was another bargain at £119 instead of the usual £350 plus. I’ve also started to collect pepper mills manufactured by Dansk and designed by Jens Quistgaard. I’m sure you will be seeing more designs as soon as I can get my hands on them, at the right price of course. To top it all off, David bought me the superb Scandinavian furniture book for Christmas. Furniture porn at it’s best.

The last new thing around here is the slightly different look to the blog. The banner may be a tad SHOUTY but I love the Graphique Pro font so I just had to use it. Hope you like it.

Hope you all have a fantabulous 2012….
