New VL & New Office


It's always an exciting moment when our 2 subscriptions of Vogue Living arrive in the mail.  We get 2 so that I can have one at Black & Spiro and 1 at home.  We received the latest issue today and I have to say that it is jaw droppingly beautiful!  My favourite story is on Chrissie Jeffery and her redecorated Sydney apartment.  I remember when her apartment was featured in VL the first time around.  She is extremely clever and very inspiring. 


Talking about redecorating, I recently decided that I don't want to sit at a desk anymore in my office at Black & Spiro so I removed my desk and I have turned my office into my very own lounge room.  I now sit on my Peggy sofa with my laptop on my lap.  It probably isn't the most ergonomically suitable situation but I love it and I feel so much more inspired.  Here's a little snapshot of how the room is coming together.


Hope you all have a great day!  I have a huge week ahead of me and I am determined to get through it with all things ticked off my list by Friday!

I get a lot of work done on the sofa in my living room so maybe I should try this idea! Although my wrist does seem to pay for it. Your office is looking beautiful as always.

I've always loved Vogue Living Australia which reminds me don't think I've seen it on my local newsstand here in Ireland. Lovely colours and great inspiration.

It would be hard not to inspired sitting in that space.
Speaking of un-ergonomic, I'm working on my laptop
On the beanbag in front of the heater. I stay there for hours?

My copy arrived too. I distinctly Chrissie Jeffrey's bedroom from the first time her flat was featured in Vogue. The new bedroom is lovely but doesn't compare with how it was before.

Wow, I can't work w/out my desk, but I love the idea of louging while preparing a post! That sounds really fun!

My week is also a busy one. But let's try to do it all w/out stressing too much. :-) Good idea, right? :-)

Have a great day!

I love your new decision to sit at your sofa--I do that in the evenings and have moved down to the patio table in the mornings and let the desk alone for now--it's so freeing! Gorgeous snapshot of your room!

Oh Anna, I love everything you do. However, I am having a hard time wrapping my arms around that granny wallpaper. Perhaps I just need time. :)

How wonderful that your workspace is not only beautiful but relaxing and comfortable.
You may be able to find a small side table the right height to place over your legs for laptop use and move away for coffee etc.
I have one in my sitting room and it works well.

You definitely need an armchair as opposed to a desk to read the latest edition of VL, did the same thing myself just yesterday!

I love the new office set up and nine times out of ten I end up working on my couch. I love it.

Love the apartment too. Did you see that Vogue Living just launched a blog and have pics of both the versions of her apartment on it. Great to see the changes she made. Blog is here -- http://blog.vogueliving.com.au/
