I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I'm slowly but surely taking over what was my husband's home office. I haven't yet settled on what colour to paint the walls (do you realise how many shades of white there are out there?!), so instead I've been busy adding some festive flourishes to the room and giving it a bit of a nordic-inspired, winter makeover. Think wood, white, natural elements, clean lines, texture and functional furniture, and, as it's Christmas, a hint of red. I already had great foundations to build upon, but a few new additions have turned it from a somewhat cold and clinical room to one that's light and bright but with a cosy and a friendly feel, too (essential when you have small children but need to work for a few minutes in the day).
