Don’t get me wrong, I like having a bigger space but I also find that it gets filled up with random things more than any other room in the house, purely because there is space to put things!

Living in an old (pre 1900) house means that it’s not exactly built for warmth, and I tell you what, those Victorians must have been pretty warm blooded to survive a winter with no central heating!

Interiors: A Dream Home Office

I’ve got a bit of a procrastination problem when I’m working from home, I find it easier to concentrate during the evening rather than during the day for some reason!
