Desk – Repurposed Ikea bed end table (similar here).
Lighting – He created the lamps by using smokey-hued, cobalt glass vases. He then carved out cork pieces to fit the frame of his lamp shades to the vase and placed 40W light fixtures inside.
Desk Chair – Purchased from Ashley Furniture clearance section (similar here), spray painted high-gloss white, and recovered with pieces from an repurposed cowhide rug. The chair base was then accented with nail head studs from the supply store that were individually hammered to the cushion. The circles within the chair arms were sprayed with gold-leaf.
Mirror – Passed down from a friend and sprayed with gold-leaf paint and laquer.
Trunks – Purchased at Garden Ridge ($5 – $15 each).
Finally, to keep your orchids thriving, he said there are really just 2 things to remember:
1. No direct sunlight – diffused natural lighting, 24 hour soft light exposure from nearby lamps
2. Water just 3 times per month – Place ice cubes in soil (not touching plant) or on top of a mossy area
That’s it! Can’t wait to take a look at the rest of this luxe space next week.
