|cool floor, really like the chair, the metal on the turned leg desk...hmmmm...notice anything?|
My mother in law did her Magazine drop off yesterday on their way thru town. (I am lucky that she gives me many of her old issues to peruse) I was happy to find a Martha Stewart with "The Ultimate Home Office" as the cover. Since my home office/guest bedroom is another room that I am in great need of decorating.
I have a desk in the kitchen where I do most of my day to day work...but when I need to spread out, I have all of my STUFF in the guest bedroom. With my recent discovery of how I like to draw and sketch, I have been thinking that I need to make the room a a bit better...more functional.
Back to the magazine cover...do you notice anything? I was really happy to find a cover with "The Ultimate Home Office" on the cover, and have always been a fan of Martha's Ideas. (although rarely implemented in my house:) I was immediately drawn to the cupboard above the desk, and the desk itself....but it seemed a bit clutterered...WHY? Hmmmm, 'funny, they have a vintage computer on the desk I thought to myself.' Who would do that??? Is that the new trend? Then I realized I was looking at a magazine from November 1993!!!! Almost 20 YEARS ago, I was still in high school!!!...Some good design never changes. Just goes to show, Vintage NEVER goes out of style....Martha was really on to something:)
Here are the other photos from the spread. Enjoy the blast from the past.
|Nice shelving design...thank goodness our computers are now smaller!|
|Oh look, this person is super lucky with a LAPTOP! |
Vintage chairs, desks, fresh flowes NEVER go out of style!
|Look at that nailhead desk...I think I have seen one of those recently....|
|Just in Southern Living this past month....Heather Chadduck's Restful retreat. |
Maybe she has been perusing the old magazines for inspiration too:) Oh, and the fabric...that is Victoria Hagan too! Much better with out that honker of a computer on the desk...no?
Seriously, I am really lucky to have a mother-in law that has kept all of these magazines in pristine condition. I even have one of Martha's first issues. There is some good stuff, timeless design....Vintage NEVER goes out of style!
Have a great day...it is supposed to be rainy and cold today...hmmmm MAYBE I could just sit with my coffee all day and just peruse the old back issues...
