In April of this year my boyfriend and I moved to a new house in Vianen, the Netherlands. It was around the same time that I quit my job, which turned out to be great timing. The new house previously belonged to a pair of elderly hoarders who had both passed away shortly after one another. Even though it was completely cleared out when we moved in, it still needed a lot of work.

I’ve spent the past couple of months repairing the damage, painting literally every surface, (and with a little help) putting in new floors and even some new walls.

My own studio space.

We decided to turn one of the bedrooms into my own studio space where I could have some peace and quiet to work on my illustrations. The room doubles as a guest room when we have a family member or friend stay over.

While I consider the space to be far from done, it’s finally starting to look like a real office!

Office desk, chair and bookcase
My current office setup

As you can see my walls are still very much empty right now. Eventually I want to create an art gallery wall with either my own work or that of other artists that inspire me (I’m still undecided, what do you think I should do?).

Pink. Black. Gold.

It’s no accident that the items on my studio wish list match the color scheme of my website and most of my illustrations. My signature style is monochromatic with pops of feminine pink and gold. You can also see that I’m fond of geometric shapes and patterns.

Wishlist consisting of a desk lamp, pouf, clock, art print, monitor, lamp and pink chair

Where to find it.

  1. Kave Home Beery table lamp – € 112,-
    Winter is coming so I could use a little extra light at my desk. The Beery lamp has a marble foot and a beautiful brass color. What more could a girl want?
  2. CASA MAITE pouf peach – € 49,95
    Seriously, this thing looks like a million bucks but it’s just under 50 euro! If it sits as good as it looks, I’m definitely finding a spot in my studio for this baby.
  3. Karlsson Hexagon clock black – € 29,69
    This hexagon shaped clock measures only 11 x 13 cm so it’s perfect for displaying it on something like a book shelf or a night stand.
  4. Jo & Judy “Trust” poster – € 19,-
    I love everything by Jo & Judy. Their mixed media posters definitely fit my aesthetic.
  5. Dell UltraSharp U2715H LED monitor € 388,95
    You might not be able to tell from the studio photo, but my computer monitor is relatively small and very old. I desperately need to invest in a better screen for my design work.
  6. QAZQA Hexagon gold table lamp – € 29,95
    This lamp is at the top of my wishlist. It’s relatively inexpensive but looks super luxurious. It’s touch activated and has three different brightness settings. I’m definitely getting this one!
  7. Essence Legno pastel pink chair – € 94,-
    I’ve wanted a pink office chair for as long as I can remember but I’m not 100% that this is the one for me. I think it looks cute, but maybe a slightly more comfortable model would be better for those long work days?

Let’s hear from you.
