My Office Sneak Peek





A little while ago, well no ages ago I told you all that I was re-decorating my office at Black & Spiro. Well of course it has taken longer than I had anticipated. Client work has had to take priority of course and that meant my office project was put on the back burner!! Well, I am thrilled to say that my little project is almost complete with the last piece (being my desk) due in by the end of this week. I am so happy with the way it's looking and I just couldn't wait to show you some pics of my artwork cluster wall as above. I will of course post pictures of the entire room hopefully by next week but here is a sneak peak. Hope you like it!!


NB. I would like to give credit to artists/crafters Anne Harwell, Samantha Hahn, Variegated Inc. as some of their pieces are included in this wall.

Your office reminds me of everything that is wrong with corporate America...I am currently staring at gray walls with special effects gray zig zag lines...brilliant

Alkemie said...

Anna, I'm so thrilled you shared your office with us! It's Fantastic! I adore the wallpaper you've chosen. Very bright and energetic but not too overpowering. I'm going to have to add this to my inspiration board.

A-M said...

Rich, warm and inviting... oh and ever so brave. It takes courage to use colour the way you do.... I would just get it so wrong! Can't wait to see the rest. A-M xx

Carolina Eclectic said...

What an explosion of color! Amazing.

Jessica @ The Love List said...

I can't wait to see the rest - it's like a little etsy art gallery you have going there. I plan to do something similar in my downstairs hallway. The wallpaper reminds me of Imperial Trellis!

N2Design said...

Is the lampshade Good Day Sunshine by Schumacher? Very pretty.

cstar said...

Oh its so beautiful - can i ask what does it say in the raised pink/white rococo-esc frame?? It looks lovely!

Potter & Co. said...

Absolutely beautiful Anna!

Was it a challenge laying out all those frames in their perfect place?

pve design said...

Lovely wall of fame!
A happy spot to work! I would whistle all day there.

Anna Spiro said...

Hi bjp - we custom make lampshades in whatever fabric you want. If that's any help.

Anna

Anna Spiro said...

CStar - the quote inside the white frame is 'don't walk behind me I may not lead, don't walk in front of me I may not follow, just walk beside me and be my friend'. I share my office with my best friend as she works for me and I gave this piece to her for her birthday a couple of years ago as she has really stood by me in both difficult times and good times!!

Anna Spiro said...

Oh, Mrs P we just laid it out on the floor in a pattern I was happy with and then I had my hangers hang it for me. So it wasn't too hard.

You are inspiring! LOOOVE your posts!

alis said...

Like it? LOVE it. How I wish right now to be working in a cozy office like that. Cubicles and ugly open office spaces must be banned for killing creativity.

Maryam in Marrakesh said...

Darling lampshade, A! Love that you mixed the pink with the red.

LindsB said...

Hi Anna,

On my T ride into work today there was a little blurb about your blog and this post in The Metro- not sure if it was just Boston- but thought I'd let you know.

I love your work!!
