Today’s Get The Look is a lovely calming, vintage inspired workspace. January is typically a time when the home office gets a bit of a make-over in our house. A new year means a new start, and that means having a good clearout of unwanted clutter, tackling the long overdue filing, and generally tidying up. There’s a lot of list-making too but that’s a whole other story. And in the spirit of my last post – have a look if you missed it – this inspiring workspace embodies the ethos of making the most of second-hand, reusing what’s around the house, and keeping it simple to promote a feeling of well-being. And it demonstrates beautifully that adopting this habit can still result in a stylish space.

Take a Look
Linen Curtains In Aurea Red from Loom & Last
The secret to making this work lies in the muted neutral colour scheme. The wall colour is a soft shade of off-white, the stylish linen curtains are beige with a subtle red stripe and even the floor is plain and light. This allows the vintage style furniture to stand out and take centre stage, and even though the items come from different periods they still work together. The accessories have been carefully chosen to look old and in keeping, and the star of the show is the patterned rug. It picks up the red stripe in the curtains and adds a punch of liveliness in an otherwise plain room. I’d happily work away in here.
