Sorry I've been absent from my blog the last few weeks... I've been getting my feet wet with Instagram and although I'm really liking it, I must confess that I do miss my friends here in blogland!
I'm back with yet another rendition of my black & white toile room otherwise known as our den/office.
I think I may have finally gotten it right!
It's been through several transitions over the last few years, especially since I started selling treasures in my Etsy Shop and Shop La Dolfina.
I've been constantly tweaking things in order to make selling my wares more streamlined and efficient!
I have to admit there has been more than one occasion where something has sold and I've been unable to locate it.
Having enough space to lay things out, photograph, measure, list, pack and ship is essential.
I have to let my matching toile sofa go in order to accommodate a large glass table. If anyone is interested in purchasing it, let me know!
The catalyst for the recent changes was this awesome desk/secretary with loads of storage potential I picked up last week!
I already had the 3 French cane chairs which I plan to reupholster in this black Alpaca wool I purchased at The White Elephant Sale a few years ago as well as a new skirt for my desk front.
I like the way it tones down the busy toile pattern on the walls and mirrored bookshelves.
I also picked up several rolls of this cool vintage wallpaper and put some under the glass on my desktop which really made it pop. I'm loving it! I actually feel more energized!
And so without further ado...
My new and improved office!
So... what do you think?
