Working inspiration 2.5.11







The home office of the ever-chic former Club Monaco creative director Christine Ralphs. I loved spotting all the Ikea here. The simple oversized corkboard from any major office supply chain, gets a sleek make-over with a simple coat of white paint. It goes to show, even someone like Christine, who no doubt has lots of options when it comes to selecting furniture, can't help but go for these simple basic pieces. It's all in the mix and picking where to go high and low. Some classic office staple from Ikea give a little extra space in the budget for some fabulous accessories - like those statement lamps!

its so funny that you would show/discuss this topic of mixing Ikea into the office environment. Yvonne & I just moved our office and did a run to Ikea for storage solutions and we both said just a little bit of Ikea in the mix, but you just can't help add more ... Ikea does storage like nobodies business and their innovations for office use are brilliant (plus the affordability) LOL, needless to say we got just a 'tad' more than we thought!

Love the clean uncluttered space. Agree, Ikea and containeur store are my destination for organizational needs.

I love the all white look. And that lamp is definitely worth a splurge. You always have the best quotes- you even found a Harrison Ford one. Ha!
