My new study 2007

I finally got in my gorgeous new old lacquer white desk and while I’d love love love an all yellow-white-and-black room, my things are too multi-coloured!

My new study 2007

Replacing my perfectly good files and boxes with yellow etc will cost more than my husband can understand so i have to be careful about what I’d like yellow. How do you keep everything the one themed colour??

My study shares its space with a sofabed that we keep for guests. The sofabed came with a brown suede top but I’m keen to ditch the brown for something happy yellow.

    the island will be photographed AFTER i change the rest of the room so that it doesn’t look like an island (my new ottoman).no addie, my desk was bought second hand from Australian Trading Post classifieds for $50. it was already professionally painted with white lacquer.yellow can be fantastic! (your room’s yellow but i kinda like mine to pack more of a Punch but not on the walls :P)
