meet my new best (inanimate) friend

January 7, 2013

I know, a computer, not the most inspired of images, unless you’re me and have been blogging for two years on a 13 inch laptop! Needless to say, it was severely limiting. Now I feel so liberated. Plus, isn’t her sleek profile so pretty? No bulky box or cords. This baby’s wireless! Thank you, Mac.

Also previously inhibiting my creative flow was the original, oppressive color of  my office. (Warning! Image below may be damaging to design-sensitive eyes.) So I slapped on some off-white paint, which is too yellow for me and will have to be redone, but at least I don’t feel like I’m working in a men’s club anymore. The rest of the room (like storage) also still needs to be worked out. But for now, with the addition of a generous desk, I can finally work in comfort. Not too mention that my husband can use the computer too.

Argh!!! The room as it was when we just threw stuff into it. Frightening, no? I honestly can’t believe I could get any work done here. All red has now been eliminated. Phew.

It looks like a GREAT place to work….and oh, those red walls, hmmmm. Their new incarnation looks light, bright and breezy – itsn’t it amazing how differently a room looks once it is painted another colour?

i’m writing from the exact same machine – life has been transformed since Santa dropped by.
+ i couldn’t live with red walls either.

Hi Justine,

My husband caught sight of this post and is in love with your desk? Would you tell us something about it?

Love & Light,

Sure, Valerie. It was designed by Nick Hollibaugh (contact info here), who lives in central MA. My whole family has pieces by Nick, because not only are they lovely, but they can be custom ordered in any wood, length, or width. My 9′ x 24″ desk is pine.
