  1. Theoda, you read my mind! We’re currently doing over our office with an industrial-style makeover (hopefully!). I’ve even convinced Anil to put our old heavy antique desk in the loft in favour of one I found on Etsy. We will be attaching these Ikea wall lights above the desk. http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/50231324/

    And we’ve also had a major paperwork clear-out which feels great!

    Thank you for the further inspiration. xxx

    • Kate, I am so glad my timing spot-on for your project. Do look further into all the companies I have mentioned, for instance, Alexander & Pearl have such a vast range. Your Ikea lights are brilliant, and what a price too, it would be rude not to.

    • Ursie, i know the feeling. My office is fairly new, but already has lost it’s sparkle and needs a good tidy before I can photograph it to show it of on the blog. Watch this space…
