Happy Office

It's done! Cleaned out, put back together and I've fallen in love with my office again.
Surrounded by some of my favourite things, this space is bright, happy and makes me smile.
I love using a repetition of bright colours layered on white. If I grow tired of this scheme, it's easy to remove the colourful elements and replace them with a more simplified palate.


So, now I'll have to figure out what I'm on to next. There are still many rooms that need an overhaul after the reno, but this is one of the most pleasurable spaces to visit, now that the clutter is gone.

  5. Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Gorgeous! I love it all! I have the same white bird figurine and chair (mine is from Zuo Modern) and I featured the desk under the window on my blog last month. You (and I??) have great taste! Where'd those 'oh-la-la' cards come from? Are they custom made?

  28. Erica,

    I would absolutely love it if you would post a source list for this office -- especially wondering about the lamp and chair. I've been looking at Eames chairs for quite some time and to be honest, they're a bit out of my league at the moment. I am willing, however, to pay a good amount of money for a well made inspired-by chair. Can you help a girl out?

    Beautiful office. Just stunning work! Thank you for sharing!

  29. Would you be willing to post a source list, Erica? I'm one of your newest followers!

  30. I love that picture/painting! Where is it from?

  31. Hey Red Lipstick! Thanks! It's a Dale Chihuly piece from his boutique at the bellagio.

    Lisa, Ella and anyone else who has inquired, I'll try to pull together a quick list to let you know where everything is from. ;) xoxo Erica

  38. Hi Amy. Thanks for the lovely compliment. The lamp in my office is called the Tolomeo Mega Floor and is made by Artemide. Hope the link below helps you locate it. :)
