Mad Hatter Home Office

So many friends ask me where I get the inspiration for my colorful decor.
I'll tell you my secret: DECORATE WITH A SONG!



Please press play and read the rest of the entry while listening to this song :)



I was listening to this "Who The Fuck Is Alice" parody and the child in me instantly thought of the one Alice I love. It's Alice In Wonderland, my second favorite story book when I was just a little girl.

I felt inspired to make a little cheery home office in an unused corner of my home, using the Mad Hatter poster that I already owned.
The Mad Hatter's ginger hair was the same color as in the song's video - so I naturally went with a black and orange color theme in order to spice things up. Needless to say, I just used items around the house and didn't buy anything new for the home office corner.

The Moroccan leather pouf was in the bedroom, the orange Tam-Tam stool and the crazy golden hat were in the happy entryway. I've had the sad little ceramic mask since I was 18 and it follows me everywhere I live. The cute little white lampshade is thrifted and it just sat around the house.




One little thing: I like to place a mirror next to my notebook - so that I can have a magical window while I'm endlessly surfing the web.
That's it, folks! I think the song is over by now, and so am I.

  20. This is a really sharp space. I love the simplicity of the lines and objects - not overly crowded, yet the color palette is perfect. I hope it inspires lots of creativity (or just pinterest activity.) :)
