Those of you who follow me on Instagram know it already – I have recently bought a mid-century teak bureau, that is I was lucky enough to have made the best bid on an online auction site. And now hold on: I got this vintage beauty for 145 Euros! Now there was one challenge though – I have not reckoned to win the bid and suddenly I had to make space for a beautiful bureau in my tiny apartment. But you always find a place for something you love, don’t you? Plus I could finally fulfill my dream of a little blogger home office. Here it is!
I have often spoken of my big passion for archaeology and history in general. In fact I wanted to study archaeology but I ended up studying international business administrations, but that is a whole other story. Anyway, history is an ongoing source of inspiration for me and I often draw ideas from my travels to historically interesting places (this explains why I spent a whole year studying in Greece), but I also find inspiration in art and literature – even for my interior styling adventures!
I am currently working on a minor living room redesign. I will of course remain in the boho vibe but I want to change some details, patterns, colours. I am finding lots of inspiration in vintage art books but also from old photographies and history books. I then browse flea markets, Etsy, shops and my stash of props at home to create something new that sort of reflects all my interests and my passions. Now here is a peek for you what I am actually planning for my living room.
I am still waiting for a few vintage goodies I ordered, then I can get started. Of course I will share the final result with you here on the blog and then I will also speak about some of my favorite online sources to buy vintage home decor items. Stay tuned. Until then I am trying to get hold of the desk mess in my new home office. But the good thing with those vintage bureaus is – once you are done, you just fold it up and close it. And it all looks neat and good again. Actually perfect for such a small home like mine. Yes, I am happy with my new-old home office.
I am off to continue the work on my living room redesign project. I wonder, where do you find inspiration for your interior styling at home? If you have a minute, please let me know in the comments. I am curious. Happy day!
