We actually have two projects: We are building a Barn (well we physically aren't but we've hired builders to do it) and I decided to redo my office. I wanted to change the space in which I write. I haven't felt inspired all summer, but then again it's the summer and I can never write in the summer. I'm too busy sitting outside with my flowers or at the beach. I decided to change the environment in my office in hopes that an inspiring and beautiful atmosphere will re-energize and boost my creative juices.
This was my old office. A bit cluttered and too bright. I don't think Edward liked gold.
I was inspired by Susan Taylor's office she has at Black Eyed Susan's. So I started with simple things like changing the wall color. I picked "Hydrangea green or the sagey green pea color" I love so much.
I brought these inside today from my garden. The colors are spectacular!
When I say I mean business, I mean it. I'm not fooling around here. I set my mind on something and I don't stop until it's done. (I usually make a terrible mess of paint all over the floor and over me.)
I think Edward likes this color better don't you. I think so. He looks much happier.
A quick trip to BES and I had a few new accessories for my new office. All I need now is my desk and bookshelves. They have been shipped already. They are just not in my office. AHHHH!
With my mom's help I got new curtains for my tiny tiny windows. I bought a beautiful cork board and put beautiful backing paper on it. And I've always had a little bit of Audrey in everything I do. This is my mom's little sewing table. I can't wait until my desk and bookcases arrive. So that's pretty much all for now. TO BE CONTINUED . . . STAY TUNED!
