Small Space Big Style

here are some more of my inspiration photos for my new office/studio space. The space that I have to work with is about 13ft by 9ft so everything that I get has to pull double duty when it comes to functionality and storage. The thing I love most about these photos is the airy feel of the rooms mixed with the graphic patterns in the textiles and the pops of color in the accessories. My worktables from Ikea just arrived and I've put them together, next on the list are bookcase, shelves, and a small sofa or chaise. I hope you guys are having a productive start to your week!

Step into My Office pt1

The inspiration for the Office makeover via Song of Style

The Shopping List

work table from Ikea, I ordered two of them to double my illustration/painting space

Loveseat also from Ikea, I'll be ordering this in a few days, I think it will be perfect for nights when I have to pull all-nighters

this is my dream desk from Zgallerie if the budget permits, I'll get this desk but if not I'll be getting this one that I found at Target

accent pillow for the loveseat

last but definitely not least, this cute metal accent table to go in my meeting space

He keeps my time, I wear his shine....

I've been in desperate need of a watch so I was so stoked when my new watch from Asos arrived, its a tiny bit to big for my tiny wrist but I don't care. lol Happy Holidays everyone!!

A lil bit of this, a lil bit of that

I love these lotus candle holders I found yesterday

things have been uber busy around here with work, traveling, and getting ready for the holidays but I finally found time to finish my Alexandar Wang inspired Studded Triangle Clutch! This was my first time ever making a purse and needless to say I learned a lot especially about being more precise in my measuring..LOL. The seams on the back aren't perfect but I'm really proud of how it turned out, I'll definitely be making another bag soon probably a very large rectangular clutch with a woven textured front. I hope you all are having an awesome start to your week!!

Over the hill and through the woods I found some peace of mind...

today was so nice that I decided to go explore the woods behind my house, I've been in a very reflective mood and the walk definitely helped me clear all the jumbled chaos in my head. :)

PS: i love my new spike earring that I just got, they melt my little black heart lol.
