HOUSE: Newburgh + Scavenging

White office.

I’ve started moving things into the white room, and wow, it’s tough to go wrong in there. I could put a stuffed Marmaduke doll from a state fair in there and it would look like high-end design. (Um, not that I plan to.) I’m really trying to restrain myself furniture-wise, and I would like very much to keep the number of pieces in this room to what’s in this photo, a desk chair, and this guy. Storage will be restricted to what will fit in the desk drawer, the Componibili unit, and on shelves in the closet. My internet access is wireless, so there won’t be any cables to deal with.

All that’s left is to hang the black Fir Tree wallpaper on the wall behind the desk, which could possibly happen this weekend.

I really want to paint all of the flooring upstairs white. It improves my whole mood walking into this room!

Here’s quick rundown on what’s in the room and where it came from:
Desk: My father’s old drawing table (adjustable legs removed, drawer front stained black), with VIKA MOLIDEN legs from IKEA (free/$60)
Storage unit: Kartell Componibili unit from DWR Annex ($29)
Stool: vintage Arne Jacobsen design for Fritz Hansen (eBay, $20)
