I'm no Nate Berkus, but here is my Office Makeover

Our apartment is in a great location and has nice neutral furniture (when you don't get to choose it, this is a good thing.) But it was feeling a little too neutral. Remember my office?

One of my favorite things about China are the incredibly inexpensive tailors. I found this crazy vintage fabric in Arizona awhile back and had it made into pillows (with zippers so I can launder them) for $2.50 each. The pattern is a little obnoxious, but I think the black and white pillows (from Ikea) break it up a bit. Or maybe I've just been reading too much Design Sponge.

Here is a closeup (that just happens to include my new white leather D&G bag...)

And on my recent trip to Ikea in Hong Kong I also grabbed a few of their cheap balsa wood frames to gussy. I think this one turned out well, though for the next one I think I'll stick with just one color.

I also can't resist sharing a close up of this orchid I haven't killed yet...Gorgeous, right? And cost me a whopping $3.50. Did I mention that I love it here?
