i have had a desk either under the stairs or in our bedroom in the loft for 20 years or so. that's been great but we decided to change a spare bedrooom into a space i could have a desk in with a sofabed so it can also be a spare bedroom when we have guests. this is the result.
it's a space for creativity and ideas - the whole feel of it is playful and the lightbulb is a reminder.
it's a space for breaking out or beyond the norms - the mural is called breakout by pippo lionni copied from an old book i have of his pictograms. it's also my zoom backdrop now!
trickster coyote is tucked under the desk to remind me to be subversive.
a few pirates are knocking around to remind me to be more pirate!
yes slightly mad perhaps but also very me. thanks to jon birch who took my ideas and put a design together including colours, the suggestion for the amazing bookcase, and designed the vinyls. i am pretty pleased with my paint work on the mural which had a few moments where i wondered why on earth i thought it was a good idea but i got there in the end. and we had an amazing builder who took the ideas and built the bookcase and did everything else we wanted. fun times!
