My new work space

Up until the end of last week my work space was in one half of the children's playroom. I started with a little desk in the corner and over the years I've taken more and more of their room. Now that I've decided to run gooseberrymoon full time I thought it only right to now have a room all to myself and not get distracted by the clutter of toys behind me. I thought Fin and Ruby would like to have their room back too!

The first job was to move this mess from the back of the house to...

...this room at the front of the house. We (I mean Tony) had to dismantle my desk and shelving unit to get it through the hallway...

 ... and then reassemble it in my new light and bright space. I've spent days painting, with help from my Dad (thanks Dad), to get it ready. I love my green wall; it's painted in Fresh Stem by Dulux and the rest of the room is Cornflower White, well it will be when I finish the other two walls!

 We had a trip to Ikea yesterday and found this bench which fits under my window perfectly.

This going to be my production table for cutting and packing which will hopefully keep my desk clear from mess.
 The drawers keep all my packs of notecards in, and I can now see at a glance if I'm running low on stock.

There's still a few bits to do like put up my notice boards and some pictures but all in all I'm very happy in my new space. Just need to try and keep it tidy.


  1. Lovely! I recently got my own work area too and it makes all the difference and I actually know where things are for a change!! Enjoy all your new space! x

  3. Hi, could you tell me the number of the Fresh Stem, I cannot find the color on the website, seems the name of the colors is not the same in every country, so number would help. it is a beautiful color and the room looks great.
    Thank you.
