If you have an extremely tight budget for interior design, you have to furnish wisely. We all know that 50.000 can be easily spent on a room. Kidding. Eliminate 00 and you more in my corner of reality.
So when signing the contract for my office, I had a vision in my head. A vision of a charming, elegant yet cozy place. I saw Tom Dixon lamps (design but not THAT expansive) Fornasetti wallpapers and Ladureè candles in every corner of the house. But my budget made me recalculate my expenses. Since my IT $$$ expended uncontrolled, it pushed out one item per time. Did I mention that I have nowadays serious issues with IT firms?
So I had to make a very serious decision: what to keep, what to say good bye to.
The answer was easy. Walls are the foundation of the room, like make up for the face. Bad skin, bad appearance. Same goes for a room. So I went for my Fornasetti wallpapers. And bought a chair, 2 desks (black glass) , 1 conference table (white lacquer) 2 black chairs (not really a model I would chose in the first place but my first hire convinced me that chairs need to be comfortable if you actually really work a lot) a book shelve, a storage thingy, 2 desk lamps looking like mushrooms and some other stuff I cant recall. All IKEA. Yes sir. Nothing I am particularly proud of, specially since the pure act of buying is just NOT elegant at all. After carrying the furniture through the hallways I discovered that they have a collecting service for as little as 30 Euro. Great, learning progress. Anyway.
I would even consider myself being modest. As I didn’t go for Hermès wallaper, which costs 290 Euro. For a Meter. Well I guess in that case we would have worked on the floor as we couldn’t even afford for IKEA.
As soon as I am able to take some decent pics of my office I will post them of course. If you follow me on Instagram, you have seen already a little peek into my office. Some Zarahome stuff to be discovered there soon as well….
