Last year my Mum gave me some money, I decided to buy a bureau and found a neat, flat-pack jobby in a high street store. On the way to make my purchase I passed a charity shop and in the window was this beauty, of course any flat-pack plans fell by the wayside and both bureau and mis-matched chair came home with me.
I love it. It is the most beautiful thing in my house and has made me look at my home with new eyes. I have come to realise that the simple, modern furniture which fills our home, while practical, does not do anything for my spirit.
I want to live in a space that refreshes me, that brings me peace and makes me smile. The bureau has become a catalyst for change in my home and that is the story I hope to tell here.
