French Elegance

I have been twittering on about perfect bedroom spaces & what features would be important for me, from four poster beds to beautiful dressing tables to the more extravagent walk in wardrobes. But often people use a small space in the bedroom as a home office too. This is something I have talked about before & I have incorporated home office spaces in to some of my bedroom designs with beautiful matching bedroom/study furniture. Especially with many people working from home with expanding families taking over the spare rooms of the house. But desks in the bedroom are hardly a new thing, writing desks were once very popular furniutre items that were often found in a corner of a bedroom where you could sit & pen a letter in the days long before email & text. I have to say this free standing Belle Maison writing desk  along with the antique french chair is a stunning feature to a bedroom dont you think?

Little fact for you :- The 17th century, medieval, Jacobean writing desk was among one of the first created & was constructed of rich woods like black walnut or oak often with  floral or scroll motifs carved into them.

With the highly popular trend of Shabby chic the vintage writing desk is making a come back with some stunning pieces to be found that have had a lick of paint & some TLC....
