One little corner of my home is somewhat finished: my work area, my home office so to speak. In my home I now have a dedicated room for serious work. I need it since changes in my mortgage-paying-job make it that I work from home on a regular basis. I need a place to spread out, focus and dedicate myself to serious business. Maybe that is why I went with this black and white colour scheme. Not a lot of neutrals here, and definitely not a lot of fluffy, girly decorations. This black and white thing is quite a trend over here. People decorate their whole house and garden in a strict black & white scheme, the only color allowed the green of house plants, if that. I like it when I see it in other homes but I could never live like that myself. But I did enjoy applying it to one specific corner of my home.
Choosing a black and white modern color scheme for my new home office feels perfect! Organized, clean and not too distracting for serious work.
Hihi, it looks so clean and organized in these pictures…
I am sure no one is fooled into thinking it looks like this on a day to day basis. Normally this is covered in books, papers, journals and other parafernalia that come with the job. Oh and bills, there are always bills too.
This house remodeling is taking so long! To think that I have owned the house for a little over a year now, and have lived here since december last year! But then again, life is more than remodeling, and so much has changed. I am still getting used to all the changes, everything still feels very new. But it also feels very good.
Unpainted ceilings, doors and walls and all, but this new house is my home. It suits me like a glove. And with every little corner that I finish it becomes more and more like the vision I had for it in my head.
I like my new life. No correction. I LOVE MY NEW LIFE.
I wouldn’t have believed it if you had told me, but it is true. Having so many changes forced upon me, has only resulted in an enormous amount of possibilities and it has freed up so much energy and power in me that I feel like a changed person. I guess I am a changed person.
A changed person with a black and white home office…..
The desk is an Ikea desk. And all the accessories are from Dutch stores, usually discount stores. I think I didn’t even spent a full $100 dollars on the lamps, rug, accessories together. I have become really good at finding the deals all over the place and bringing them together.
I might not be so good at ignoring deals that I have not found a purpose for……
One little corner down, a gazillion to follow.
I guess this means…..
….. to be continued.
