Finally admitted that yellow was not working for me and picked a soft robin's egg blue for repainting my office. I love the difference and have gone to just stand in the space because it feels so right. Also took the opportunity to rearrange the furniture and swapped out a high table with free standing cupboard from IKEA. Actually bookcase, table, chest of drawers and tall cabinet all came from IKEA. The room arrangement works so much better too and luckily everything just fit.
I have some art to put up on the walls and need to finish recovering a chair and then the room is done. Can hardly wait to use it.
Now I want the kitchen repainted a similar watery colour
