Amazing solutions to constraints!

 

From Houzz: Desks for small spaces

25 Aug

 

Unintentional…. furniture theme this month, thanks to inspiration from Houzz Ideabooks.  My August 2nd post featured a reproduction “Ice Box” used for shoe storage/dresser plus a link to “Savvy Shoe Storage”.  On August 16th, I posted a photo of a pair of upholstered barrel back chairs paired with link to “Antiques Today” from Houzz.

Here I go again.  My favorite small desk from the Houzz Ideabook is number 4, the drop-down secretary from Pottery Barn.  Surprise! maybe not… I have this small cherry drop-down writing desk of my grandfather’s in our guest room.  It is paired with a chair featuring needle point seat cover made by my mother.

“A Sisterhood of Sheds” was published last month in the Indianapolis Star.  How delightful!  “She Sheds” are spaces detached from the house, decorated to be a sanctuary for the woman of the house.  A network of shed owners from around the world are connected by a Facebook group called “She Shed Sisters” with 1350 members!  Creative!  Inspirational!  Even practical.

Reminds me of the lovely book Chris Madden published in 1998 A Room of Her Own featuring high-profile clients with stunning photography of their most personal spaces.

Perhaps…there is a New Year’s resolution in these ideas….
