Beautiful! Cant wait to see the finished bedroom too! I love all the pastely colours you've used for all the furniture. I would love a work room like this - sadly I only have a kitchen table to work on!! XX

Hi Vanessa I am really enjoying your blog at the moment. It is always great but seems to be extra good at the mo! What turquoise blue paint did you use for the lovely cupboard. Everything looks so good. You are very clever. The garden looks fab too in your previous post.

have a happy weekend!

love Emma xxxxx

The Antidote

What a beautiful inspiring place to work. Your use of colours is glorious and it all works so well together.
Love the blog x

Jennyff

How grown up to have a studio, and yours is a lovely space to work in. My favourite pieces are the plan chest and Douglas

Hen

Oh, it's too lovely for words. So pinkily pink, what could be better, and with turquoise too, my second fave colour by a snippet! It's impressive you've managed to make all the different bits and pieces go together well yet it looks very original, very you. I think there's nothing worse than a room that looks like the whole lot has come from the same shop (however nice the shop). I'm rambling... Anyway, it's gorgeous, I'm sure you'll feel very inspired to create. Douglas is too cute!

You should enter it for that american Studios magazine. It looks so lovely.

cathleen

It's absolutely charming, Vanessa. A room totally full of eye candy that I just keep wanting to stare at. I adore all the pink! You did a great job!

Helen Lambert

It's lovely Vanessa, I am desperate for shelving in my work room so I am green with envy ...I would love a good old snoop through your book shelf ....have a lovely weekend...H

Frogdancer

I wish I had a space like that....

Lucille

Fabulous. But hello, excuse me, what about the humungous, bouquet of flowers on the plan chest which you silently scooted past -are they silk? Plastic? Real? All of the above?

Cat

Oh, I am just so very green with envy. What a wonderful space. Have a lovely weekend. Cat xxx

Vanessa:

Everything looks stunning. I am impressed and I don't mind telling you, a wee bit jealous.

So pretty, enjoy it!

I love the pink walls - that's a great idea, and it so beautifully sets off the greens and blues of the furniture. It's a lovely studio!

Um, ditto to all of the above!
Belissima, beautiful, am very envious!
Also curious too about the HUGE bunch of flowers! xx

Wow. Love the mix of colour. You are so lucky to have a room all of your own, it looks heavenly.
