INTERIOR | Work Area, Notebook Fetish

Photobucket

Photobucket


Desk: Made by my boyfriend with plumbing pipes and leftover perspex from my side table DIY. He is a genius when it comes to interior design projects; I could hardy call this a DIY, it's more like a finished product.
Lamp: Also made by my boyfriend from old merchandising material from the shop where he works.
Chair: Hema
Current notebooks: Large black ringbound notebook: Tiger DK, thin sketch book: Moleskine, thick sketch book: Moleskine, double binder white notebooks: Maison Martin Margiela
Clear cuff: DIY


I am obsessed with working areas; whether that be someone's kitchen table, Jowy's little art room where she works on her illustrations or Linda's atelier. So I thought it would be fun to also share some snapshots of the area where I blog from; a corner of our living room. I don't separate 'work' from the rest of my life; one should spend as much time doing what they love, I don't mind staying up all night to work on interesting projects. The pile of notebooks is the result of my notebook fetish, and these are my current favorites. I always make sure I have at least one of them with me at all times as ideas and inspiration come when you least expect them.

Whoa, what a gorgeous workspace. And I love that it completely reflects your aesthetic. Not to mention you are a lucky dog to have such a super talented boyfriend. That desk and lamp are amazing! He should market that stuff, seriously.

Heel mooi! En wat ontzettend gaaf dat je vriend die tafel heeft gemaakt, idd een product dat 'af' is. Als je nog een mooie notebook zoekt, bij de Hema hebben ze er een met semi-transparant plastic in het grijs!

Aubrey said...

This is so gorgeous. I love that your style extends beyond fashion to your actual life aesthetic. Very inspirational and well, cool.

Laura said...

Looks great!
I haven't seen your tattoo before (Am I blind!?) and I love it. Something special.

Bri Wang said...

Wow, your boyfriend did an incredible job on the desk.
Your interior photos are always so inspiring.

I completely understand the notebook fetish - I have so so so many. The problem is sticking to one at a time and losing track of my though processes!

And I love the notion of 'work' carrying through your life. Especially in terms of design, you become your aesthetic, and live in it.

Filippa said...

Transparent, why am I not surprised?
Just kidding! Really love your blog, your clothes, look, and of course your furniture!

Kamila M. said...

DESPERATELY SEEKING PEGASE I By Dorothee Thomson said...

Wow, It's totally a great space, the desk is an awesome piece and I agree with you, you can't call it too much a "DIY" it's a Handmade Design desk.
Compliments !

you and your boyfriend are so talented, beautiful and stylish -you must be real soulmates! Can't think of how your daughter turn out :)
I always wanted to say that I truly admire you two! you were having a child at a very young age, you had to stay responsible when other people enjoyed their live like there was no tomorrow and you are still a happy family. that is for me the most inspiring about you!

Suus said...

Nice clean work area!

LOVE AESTHETICS said...

Yes, that's exactly how it is, and yes this could only work because we are also soulmates/best friends :)

Everything you do is so beautiful! Obsessed with all the clear furniture you have made. I'm about to make my boyfriend try his hand at building a table from your instructions! I have a notebook fetish also, and have now found the extreme need for one of the mason martin margiela one's. Thank you for your inspiration, I can't tell you how much time I've spent sifting through your blog!
