Artful Living

desk vignettes – part I

Esther Freud,  writer and daughter of Lucian Freud writes from this spot where one can only imagine the slow unfolding of words turning into a novel.  Note the shoes are ready for immediate departure.   The cardboard box must surely contain something very important.

This is the desk from “All the best” which I was very honored to receive today.  Just take a look at the lovely spot in Scotland and the pretty view out the window.    It’s so nice to put the desk with the blogger.  Perfectly appointed with a stunning silver lamp, and fresh hyacinths, don’t they smell divine.  I illustrated the blog header for All the Best, so I feel like I have visited a wonderful friend, one with a well- lived desk.
The desk from “My Notting Hill” – Look at her lovely organized shelves and comfortable Aeron Chair.  I love to see where everyone works to fulfill their dreams, blogging while designing a wonderful life.  Quite a lovely shade of blue hydrangea, very soothing and calm and the back of the shelves are a dark chocolate.   The combination is rich and inviting, yin and yang.   Good feng shui to have your back to the wall.  I feel really great “chi”energy from this spot!
Inspiration Boards are beautiful for posting a collection to show your true hopes and dreams.

I quite like the silver accents to show polish and edge.  Quite like the “Annechovie” print propped next to the computer.    Note the shell, the lovely flower and the polaroid of the thistle. ( I’d love to come over one day and paint that brick wall white!)
Please feel free to e-mail a photo or sketch of your desk, and keep in mind it is not perfection we are after, rather a glimpse into your creative spot, piles and all.
Thanks to each of you for allowing us to view your desk vignette.
