My writing room

Each time we come from my house to my sweetheart's, I've been making sure we bring something along with us. Another box of books, perhaps, or (as yesterday) another bookcase. I find that the lovely wall of bookcases we've established in my writing room is nearly full already. Which reminds me that I haven't yet shown you photos of my new writing room.

It's not quite finished - there are still a stack of books to come over and fill in that largely empty shelf, for instance, and there is art to be hung above my desk - and someday we are going to trick out those IKEA shelves with moulding to make them look like a custom built-in. (And in case you are curious/observant, I installed the top shelf of the far right bookcase backward, and didn't catch the error until I'd already pounded nails into it to keep the back in place, so . . . oops.)

Here's the wall of shelving:



And here is the desk area:



Now I just need a pretty new mousepad, and to hang some art or a shelf or something above the desk, and it will be mostly done!

It's lovely. So glad to see you getting settled in such a happy place. You AND Kismet.

It really is a happy place, with lots of natural light from my window and great light from the overhead and desk lamps. Don't know if the wall color comes across, but it's a color called "Blue Opal" that shifts from green-blue to purple-blue to pretty gray depending on the light. I really love it.

It really is. It's not a huge room, either, although you can't necessarily tell that from the photos.

Aww. Thanks, Robin. It is the first time ever that I've had my own creative space, and I am really loving it.
