Villa Styling Office Reveal
Today I chatted with the hugely talented Louise Roache from Villa Styling about her recentlyupdated office space; her “top of the list” wants for her office, her process for styling a room and all the details on those gorgeous cabinets which have all the Instagram & Pinterest DIY’ers pinning and planning..
AF: What was on top of your “must have” list for your office space?
LR: Top of my must have list for the office space was a gorgeous desk one that looks good but also felt comfortable this one ticked all those boxes for me
AF: I’m eyeing off your office chair; it’s gorgeous!! Are you happy with your choice?
LR: Yes, I wanted comfort for my back so I searched long and hard for a chair that was actually comfy to sit in for a long period, I found this one at Freedom and it was white which I loved and had wheels to which was fab (Freedom are currently sold out).
AF: Other than a comfy chair, any tips on staying productive during long stints in front of the computer?
LR: Long stints of editing can take its toll on my neck and back because of the repetition so I always like to do about 3-4 hours then take a break and head out to the studio to tidy up, clean up and prep for the next days shoot!
AF: Tell us about those incredible cabinets
LR: I purchased 2 Ivar cabinets in neutral from Ikea and then painted them with Taubmans colour, Sorell Hide. I then attached some handles to match another cabinet that I have upstairs.
AF: Do you use ole fashioned diary for appointment keeping or an online planner?
LR: I use an old fashioned dairy but a funky one, it’s called The Big Monthly Planner and I use pencil to write in my shoots week to week as they always change at a moments notice because of weather changes in or product arrivals.
AF: What is your personal process when styling a room?
LR: My personal process for styling is very much on a whim I buy what I love but I’ve always had in my mind a particular overall look for my home I haven’t got it all planned out at all I simply go room by room and run with what I love, what functions well and what I think gives me the feeling for each room I’m aiming for, I also have to work with the house and it’s bones and structurally what will be sound and open the house up further because I love natural light.
