Yesterday's DeskTops spotlight showcased a workspace which deviated from the typical hum-drum decor with a bold palette of colors and patterns. One of the easiest ways to add color into any room, but is often skipped over for home offices, is using wallpaper. And as you can see by this before and after, the results don't have to be so vibrant...there's beauty in subtle too. Viv of design/home site, ish & chi impressed us with her ongoing home office update. Starting with a pleasant, but fairly neutral desk, she's since updated...dare we say "upgraded"...her walls with an assortment of pleasing details: wallpaper replacing singular artwork, a fun chevron lampshade, matching crumpled white waste bin, Eames Molded Plastic Armchair with Wood Dowel Base (which looks great, but isn't recommended as a task chair ergonomically speaking), a small collection of vases to hold her pens and pencils, and even a suitably small Tivoli Model One radio for her music listening pleasure.
"The study is a small little space but now it is also functional. There are folders to store magazines I use when I'm looking for inspiration for my blog, coloured pencils (I prefer these over the normal lead pencils) in cute little vases, the clipboards to hang bills or love letters and the lamp for some lighting because I usually write at night." - Ish & Chi continues her study makeover/Lustablesish & chi)
