my scandinavian home: The lovely, light-filled workspace of a blogger and nutritionist

The lovely, light-filled workspace of a blogger and nutritionist

Wednesday, 3 June 2015

How're you feeling today? If like me, you're in the middle of a looooong working week you might enjoy this inspirational home office in Northern Virginia, USA created by Carlene Thomas and her husband. The space was converted from a second story front porch into a beautiful office for Carlene to write her blog and work as a dietitian nutritionist. Three out of the four walls have french windows and it's a long narrow room which presented quite a challenge when it came to working on the layout. However, the clever use of a mirror and handmade furniture helped to solve the puzzle and the result is a beautiful uncluttered, clean home office. I could work from here today (especially with that little doggy curled up at my feet), how about you?!

A quick guide to where a few of the items are from: vintage Eames chairs (there's currently a beautiful one in cream for sale here), antique mirror (find a similar one here). The black door is painted in Benjamin Moore Onyx. Black and white painting by Meg Biram. The floating desk was built by Carlene's husband. Bin from H&M home. Thonet chair. original Inslee watercolour. Anthropologie pencil holder.

See before and after pictures as well as more info about this space here.

For more inspiration you might want to make a pot of coffee and scroll through these home offices and studios. After all - if you find the right job and create an environment you love, you'll never have to do a days 'work' again! So they say...

....but no matter how wonderful work is, I'll always prefer travel and the great outdoors, how about you?!

Thank you so much to Carlene for submitting the images for today's post! If you have any images of your home / studio /atelier / outdoor space you'd like to share I'd love to hear from you!

Have a lovely day!


  1. Beautiful workplace. I like the amount of light there and beautiful vintage mirror!
