{Our Smaller Office}

As promised in my two previous posts: {Less Office Space in Return for Our DEEPER Reach In Closet...} and {Our DEEPER Reach In Bedroom Closet}, here is Our Smaller Office. All done and the dust has been cleaned away. Not only the dust from this remodeling but also from the next project which I will show you shortly. But we're done with this room; almost ready to do the happy dance!
That's the office side of the DEEPER Reach In Closet...
You can see to the left the door. The indoor shutters for the windows, I had to close as the sun would prevent me from taking any photo...
We did place all four of our oak Barrister book cases on top of each other.
Way on top is my oak sewing chest...
We got our oak Barrister book cases from the Levenger Outlet store in Del Rey Beach, Florida.
Looking back to the door and into the halway... There seems to actually be no loss of space that we would ever miss!
Let's turn full circle... The oak desk that I used for writing, previous to having my PC.
The turned wood lamp has been handmade by my friend Becky's Father. 
He no longer is with us...
My printer and my scanner are to the left in the other oak desk...
By the way, this is also a new solid oak plank floor by Bruce.
It very well matches all our solid French oak furniture from the 80s and early 90s.
Emptying the room is the hardest part. We did move into the Rose Suite downstairs, as all this was stored inside our master bedroom.
That's the corner where these blog posts come to live...
Love my special Herman Miller® Aeron® Chair with basic lumbar support for my back.
The best thing about these chairs is that they can be ordered in S, M and L and this is the S version, called 'A'.
Hyatt House Miami Airport had them in their guest rooms and that's how I found out about its great support!
Found mine at a discount at Madison Seating in New York, N.Y.
They also come with a caster option that is fit for hard wood floors.
My PC stand is from Office Max, aluminum and glass.
The beautiful artwork above my monitor has been done by a friend, who made it for Pieter's birthday one year. Frame is by Irok gallery. 
Stepping back into the door opening so you can see the window again.
Shutters closed for the sunshine.
Our PC is from Costco Wholesale.
IMPOSSIBLE to capture that on photo with the sunshine...
Lacquered Brass Window Decorations are from Jech Kunstgewerbe, Blaustein/Germany.
The three needle lace hangings are hand made by me.
They are hung inside an acrylic frame and held together by clear acrylic nuts & bolts.
I use dual sided Scotch tape for holding the lace in place.
Anyone wanting to frame an heirloom doily or whatever; just contact me!
Below this post I will put a link where you can see those acrylic nuts & bolts in detail.
On the side wall of the DEEPER Reach In Closet we hung those Royal Tichelaar Makkum blue tiles. Royal Tichelaar Makkum is the Netherlands' oldest company!
My Paternal Uncle Jan, did frame them. It is not wood but he did mold a gypsum frame for each one of them. 
My dear Aunt gave this to me after my Uncle passed away because we always have been very close with him. 
Another of those gifts to treasure for a life time...
So what you say about our finished job?
This is what prevented me from taking photos with the shutters open... 30°C or 86°F at 15:00 o'clock...
Wishing you all part of that sunshine!

  1. Beautiful space for working, Mariette, with all your lovely sentimental gifts! Your extended closet cannot be seen in your beautiful remodel, but so nice to have that extra space for storage. Your chair looks very comfortable and I do love your pretty window decorations. A lovely room.

    I hope you have a very nice weekend.
    Hugs, xoxo

    1. Dearest Karen,
      Thanks for your visit and you are right that the extended closet space is not taking away anything from the office. That chair is a blessing and I got it in the summer of last year. Even if I have back pain and cannot lie in the bed; this chair gives comfort!
      The windows are very special; even with the glare on photos.
      Happy weekend to you as well; hope no more rain.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  2. Dearest Mariette,

    So lovely to see your office and where all your blogging and writing is done.
    You must be enjoying the extra closet space and it is such a great space.
    Glad you can do the happy dance now and I look forward to seeing your next project.

    Have a lovely weekend and many thanks for visiting me and the birthday wishes for Victoria.
    hugs

  3. Nu ik het zo zie..ik geloof ook niet dat je de ruimte in je kantoor gaat missen.
    Moest wel lachen om je opmerking over het dansje...ja, dat ga ik straks ook doen als het klaar is.
    En eigenlijk is het 'nieuwe' toch ook weer beter dan het 'oude'? qua stoel en bureau? Je hebt leuke verzamelingen...net als ik hier :) alleen heb ik niet alles meer binnen hangen, dat geeft zoveel werk met schoonhouden..heb jij een werkster misschien?

    1. Lieve Marian,
      Nee, die kast ruimte missen we hier zeker niet. Het was een goeie oplossing; hadden we veel eerder moeten doen... De stoel met name is zo'n enorme verbetering! Het schoonhouden is mogelijk iets beter met centrale airconditioning; de lucht gaat door een filter. Maar er komt toch stof na verloop van tijd. Ja, ik heb verschillende werksters; vier poeze meiden!
      Liefs,

      Ja, so kann man fast virtuell zur Besuch gehen bei einander!
      Die Möbel sind aber nicht alt. Es ist zwar solides französisches Eichen aber stammt von den 80er und 90er Jahren. Es ist aber zeitlos.
      Schönen Sonntag noch!

  11. Dearest Mariette,
    Space acts in strange ways. Four inches inside your closet has given you a more practical storage area. Four inches taken from your office is barely perceived.
    The pictures give a great 3D feel for the room. I'm in love with the tiles. Thanks for the link.
    Enjoy your Sunday...........*s*

    1. Lieve Madelief,
      Ja, voor amerikaanse begrippen hebben wij nog best europees gebouwd maar wij beiden vinden het ná Nederland, Italië en Indonesië erg riant en ook ruim. De praktische indeling hier met ingebouwde muurkasten is fantastisch en ik zou ook niet meer zónder kunnen. De tuin is eigenlijk té groot; anderhalve hectare is niet niks om met ons beidjes bij te houden... Maar zo kwam het nu eenmaal, je koopt hier nooit een postzegelformaat huis met tuin.
      Wat tuin betreft zijn wij best jaloers op jullie grond en de prachtige bloemen. We hadden het er vanmorgen nog over om onze rozen op te geven. Er zijn er weer zoveel dood. Slechte grond; geen waterhoudend vermogen en dan nog eens tot 44°C (in de schaduw!) voor juli en augustus; daar is houden aan. Jullie hebben veel regen maar je hebt er ook veel voor terug; niet voor niets is Nederland the Garden of the World! Dus geniet er van en blijf lekker knus en gezellig.
      Je gaat toch al vaker over de grenzen dus dat is ook leuk...
      Liefs,
      Mariette

  14. Your office looks really nice. It's smaller, but not small at all. And the wall from closet makes a great place for these lovely framed tiles.
    I love your oak furniture, and your chair! It's nice the chair comes in different sizes and great support :-)
    It's storming here right now. I don't know if it's coming or has come to your area, but sure hope you stay safe!

    Oh My!!! We can see why you said that you were ready to do the happy dance♡♡♡ Your choice is your oak furniture and the floor is SO marvelous☆☆☆ Haha, and I feel a bit envious with your PC corner as I might have said before(^_^)v Bigger screen will be really nice. Oh, also SO happy for your special chair and you said "basic lumbar support for my back"; I remember you mentioned about back ache, mine for neck(^^;)

    PS> sorry for my belated comment. Actually, father has mental trouble (again) and may need hospitalized for medical adjustment. Physically OK though p;)

      Any time you pay a visit is fine! Blogging is no obligation to anyone; it should be enjoyable. Sure I understand the extra care your Father is taking up; being there for him for lunch so he will enjoy his food more is quite a gift of love. Let's hope he will adjust soon and get into his routine. Aging is not for the faint of heart...
      Love and hugs back from Georgia,
