Love it....O the love for a little eclectic mix of ideas....
The room colour is so calm and the backdrop to the desk adds a touch of style amongst a real working office....
I love that it looks like its used with style. I try so hard to keep everything clean and unseen...maybe I will have to let that go a little given my reaction to this room. Will the OCD ever stop.

Love the colors and it looks organized but without being stuffy and boring. My favorite part has to be that window shade. Sometimes just a little bit of pattern is all you need!
Great room!

My clueiest friend told me always to position my desk at ninety degrees to the window; that way I am not looking into glare, can still glance outside/catch a cool breeze, and in most rooms it means people can't loom up behind me which DRIVES ME INSANE!

Love the colour of the wall but then it is similar to my office:) Love the personality and character in the room, especially the desk. But there is too much pattern for me between the rug, the blinds and the fabrics on the chair. I don't think they are wrong just a little too busy for me. And I am afraid I am way too OCD for all that clutter from the books. But it is a lovely room and you can just picture the person living in it:)

I find it a little dull. I like colour in my rooms, hence why I am painting every room in my house. I find cream, white and beige on walls boring. I love all of the storage space. You can never have too much storage.

Juli said...

Lovely! My favorite things are the patterned shade and the mismatched, oversized knobs on the desk. Oh, the peaceful work I could do in such a place!

Kerry said...

I really like it. It looks homely and comfortable...and quite possibly a little bit comforting as well. Because let's face it, sometimes work can be less than fun!

Christine said...

I love certain elements of it namely the desk, chair and rug. But not sure about the shelving on each side, it's quite cluttered - makes it feel a bit like the walls are closing in on each other. The colour is perfect for a study and I love the desk looking out the window - our study is set up the same way.

hmmmmm, not really loving this one - a little to brown for me, not that I'm a Brownist or anything but I think the shade they have used is all wrong. It all feels a bit heavy.

looove the wall colour and the concept of the room but find it a bit to matchy matchy and beige or something maybe needs some more depth and contrast or something and bit too much stuff visible for me but thats the ocd in me! lol

Lou said...

My first thought was that it was cosy but now it feels a little cramped. If it was our place then the sun may be too strong and make looking at the screen difficult.

I love it! I so would love to have something that organized! I have to say as far as my internet shopping I love the owl umbrella but I just don't know if I can justify the price. I do love the cupcake holders!

Looking Glass said...

I love it all except the wall hanging on the right, not my style.
Nice cosy colours!

I really like it for an office space. My dad has his study painted this colour and I always feel calm when I enter. It's kind of a soothing colour without being in your face.

Gail McCormack said...

I love it.
Although feel it is a little too cluttered, but aren't many well used Office spaces? Well mine is anyway, Katrina, I know yours isn't!

If it was mine, I'd replace the patterned blind and rug with plain ones, which may tone done the busy feel of the room

I really like it! I love the look of the revamped desk but, being tall, I think I would get annoyed on the lack of leg space. But, hey, this isn't about practicalities is it? And I do like having a window view from a desk - a bit of daydreaming never does anyone any harm!

The Pink Poodle said...

The colours all blend in beautifully & all the different textures all blend together as well..

Having said that...I couldnt sit in this office for too long without feeling quite stressed??

It is maybe more masculine...so that would be great for the MAN of the house..

For me..it is a bit too kind of structured..too boring..and not at all a creative space....
BUT great for THE MAN!!!~~~
although having said that I think my hubby would hate it...
He likes an industrial chic office...!!~~~

(which he has)!!~~

ps..i still always feel guilty being negative about a room..even though i know that this is what it is all about..!!! commenting....

Hmmm... this ones hard..love the wall colour and the cream but something does not fit..maybe the carpet... too busy perhaps and a little cramped...but I want one of those desk chairs..please!

Jen Jen Qld said...

I like it, but I'd need a much taller desk and bigger chair to fit my tall legs under!

Love the fabric on that wonderful old office chair....I might be biased but I think that chair really makes the room, cheers Katherine

I know I am late to comment- just trying to catch up on blogs now...but predictably I don't like it. It looks too boxed in for my taste :) I wouldnt like my office in these colours either...but hey you know I am fussy :)
