This year has been a very big year for my small business Since it was finally decided to trust and go to see things a little bigger. It was not easy and before pressing the button I quite tight buttocks :D
It has no great thing from the outside air I guess, but we take our offices in us, sign a lease 3-6-9 and say that everything will be okay is a little like when we take his first apartment we pay alone as a major when you have 20 years old.
They sublet a small corner of offices chez Colorz depuis toujours, then when they left we said “would like if it regained the entire floor for us all alone ?”. I have prepared a file for the owner of the premises without too believing and I found myself in panic when she told us that it pleased him well and that she accepted we rent all the space. Kind I found myself shaking the phone while confirming that everything was nickel trying to have full assurance in the voice. And it's the day after it is decided to darken, hop hop chick who finally leaves the nest.
I remember the long winter evenings where I contemplated our space full of cardboard and dust from ceiling asking me if I had not made a big mistake (It's stupid huh ?). And here we are 9 mois plus tard, as after giving birth to a large baby, months of plans, business plan, of work, Deco. And all is well. It was really worth not sleeping during all these months, wake me up at night to record ideas or review the plan, missions to the Leroy Merlin of St Denis to buy a door workshop, the 90 boxes placed on a pallet at ikea a Sunday and the 5 other missions that followed…
It is brand new with our new site and our offices pretty alone to us. And I am really proud that it did everything to finally provide the means, me who always doubt and who am much too conservative. So here's our beautiful offices and all our deco ideas !
CA this is the corner where we work, It has a large canopy to the ceiling which gives us incredible light, and a super nice tropical wallpaper PS International *. What is j'adooooore, as well as a deco balloons with helium-based from home My Little Day *.. On a 4 small offices and a large table.
Our lovely offices inside redoubt (I come back after, It has customized the passage of the ugly cables) + Chair Ikea and our trash was assumed in the RADIUS cache pots at Ikea
With drawers handy for storing each his small brothel (because everyone has always the brothel and need to deal with).
Like that is always neatly offices
There are each a small trolley Ikea to put our small business
Ikea lamp, fan Muji
On every desktop there is a lamp, a small fan and a power cable and RJ45 cable. It has made holes in offices in the Bell saw and bought caches on amazon. Then on a power strip belong to the small shelf of the office (It was chosen for this, c’est parfait)
Offices a bit was meant as a big studio, with the entrance into the kitchen where we had lunch also.
The entry with our love smeg fridge <3 and everything else is IKEA. Has been of Papel Picado ceiling because the exhibit was a little bland and it changes everything (It is not expensive and you can write what you want).
And then there is a seating area where one can ask to work or chatting with those who come to the office (customers, friends). At the bottom was a great wall of ikea cabinets with wallpaper top (I stole this idea to The room). We think not enough but pax 35cm deep ikea cabinets are super storage that take little room, on a section of wall around it makes lots of storage.
The idea of all that space is of course to do a bit more than offices : It has a photo studio where work is if one moves the large table and that is pushed into the offices against the walls (has been This shooting par exemple), You can also host workshops DIY or receiving a little more world a drink. It was really thought these offices to be modular, the foot of the table was cut to put casters and is reflected on all.
You know it, I'm a great collector in the soul (I already gave you a glimpse of my collections of love here). My book collection Alice is my favorite part. The book being dropped long since in the public domain there is often new editions of the book coming out and for me it's a bit the Pokemons hunting. This is my latest finds and my next purchases ^^
I saw this book the Disney Family Museum and I took it, rests, taken, rests, report to my luggage for the return which was not expandable and already well full. And I told myself that I would buy it later. And I counted correctly ! There are all the drawings of research of Mary Blair and I loooooove ! It is at the top of my list.
And then this beautiful book with a woven blanket pink that I j'adooooore. The editor did an amazing job in retooling the autograph manuscript of Lewis Carroll with the help of a talented calligrapher. It is not far from being my favorite book <3
A few months ago, I was reading this article on Slate about Ikea, and to the wire from my reading I am surprised to exclaim me alone in my living room (I speak much alone Yes) than “Oh but I'm not at all agree” !
Alors oui, they add a little IKEA with their disgusting meatballs that would be “more dumplings”. But at the bottom I believe enough fort than our interior, How is it landscape, objects and furniture that you choose have an impact strong enough on the way we live.
I took you as an example my living room / bureau (my home is very small, the parts communicate, I can also use in the fridge when I work on my desktop :D).
I had a very nice small office, very handy with a small trap past cables, and perfect dimensions : stack hair the width of my couch against which it was back-to-back, and 50cm depth exactly what was needed for that I not end up sitting in the kitchen.
Small office stuck between the couch and the fridge
And then I decided to get back a little to the drawing, to start a bit of calligraphy, and I also wanted to start for real sewing. And I could not, but then not at all.
I finally understand that my desk was simply too small, There was just what to ask a computer and basta. Then I thought about another way to organize my living room / bureau. And Paris, in our small areas it is a real part of tetris.
I arrived pretty quickly to the conclusion that it should get rid of my small Expedit shelf that was at the other end of the lounge.
Its small 38cm depth allowed me to have a table of 88cm instead of 50 (a nice increase of 75%). But it was necessary that I find room for everything it had : My amp, a screen, des livres, and a multitude of boxes and shelves in the shelves.
I spent at least 3 week-ends in an incredible mess at any store :
Once I managed to relocate elsewhere (in passing I therefore sorted all my library to make room) I sold my expedit and my office on the right corner.
What allowed me to retrieve a small budget for my new table which should be tailored (I've scoured all the possible catalogues nothing was the right size).
So, I bought a table on this cutting site top : the wood shop. I chose a very large tray in solid beech 4cm thick stack hair in the dimensions I wanted. I paid extra to machine the 4 songs to avoid from me raper arms on the edges of the table and the round was played ! I received my tray at the end of 2 semaines. Good it was hyper heavy, but I don't regret it a hangover a beautiful well tray thick like that.
After I bought feet of drawer desk (I have taken 2 + a simple corner) at ikea, and for the moment I just asked the top shelf, and saw the weight, it not move.
I recovered 210 € with my old office and my expedit, and spent €400 for the new table. Not so ruinous that therefore operation.
Good there like this deco level difference is baaack flaaaaagrante. But I have a big table with lots of shelves custom where I can finally do many things. I even handed over to make large puzzles (Yes I know my life is super rock'n roll !!)
It has completely changed my opportunities for jobs and hobbies on this table, without changing the layout of the room, My homies have sometimes had difficulty seeing where I had found the place to put this big table, as if my living room was Mary Poppins bag :D
