Office Study

Well, this process is somewhat more challenging than anticipated.
I found the chair and am excited with the possiblities given a can of paint.
I am actually thinking outside of my rather white and beige box on that one.

I don't want to reveal anything yet
let's just say that I have been getting my inspiration from this great office in bedroom shot below.

Hooked on Houses (click above and below to go to site)

Yes, well, I did not say that my office space would be totally original, right?

I have searched high and low for the perfect table/desk such as this one but it has not been easy.
Almost snagged one the other day but somebody beat me to it.
Yes, I still love kijiji.
But that hunt is often all about timing.
I am now looking in 2nd hand stores
the odd antique store.

I have the layout figured out.
That has been a big decision.

Does the bed get the window view
does the table?

Well, table won out on that decision.
So, I will have a great view out of a new window on to the garden below.

I hear you.
You want pics....right?
Well, coming.... all in good time.

 Right now my fingers are crossed on this table that could be my desk....
Needs work.... lots of work
but has possibilities,
Don't you think??
and the price is RIGHT.


  1. Hi Donna, I certainly love your inspiration and the table you hope to get. It's a beauty! I'm sure you will enjoy the garden view as well. Fingers crossed that you get the table.

  2. The table has a great shape and weight to it. looks like you could get down to some serious business on it.

  3. Yes that is one solid table and it would look great as a desk!! Can't wait to see the results.

  4. oooh! LOVE it!! and of course you picked the BEST HOUSE EVER as your inspiration. Love that house (and the movie too!)


  5. Notice how her clothes match the decor..... you have a sense that she really belongs in the room..... looking awesome and the table will be perfect - it you get it..... if not I have no doubt that you will hold out for something equally awesome..... Projects are so exciting.... don't forget there is the inventory at Millionaire's Daughter - road trip ? LOL

  6. It sometimes takes so much time to find the right piece for a room. But the search is exciting, isn't it? I think you're right to keep the window for the desk, it'll be a lot nicer to work next to a window. I can't wait to see it all.

  7. When I saw the first picture I wondered where I had seen that office before. Duh One of the most famous film houses ever! You perfect desk is out there waiting to be found.

  8. That sneak peak of the table is fabulous - what a beautiful thick chunk of beauty!!!
    Can't wait to see !

  9. Good Find! Apologies for my ignorance, however what movie is that office from.... feels rather familiar

    1. Jileen, that image is from "Something's Gotta Give". I love watching that film just for the set!!

  10. I can't wait to see it when you're done!


  11. Donna, I forgot to tell you.. that night after reading your post, guess what was playing on the TV... Somethings got to give. How crazy is that! Well Stephen and I watched it and yes.. oh yes is that set beautiful!!

  12. It definitely has possibilities and what great inspiration.


You can leave a comment....totally up to you....Yep, I do love it when you do!
