Study reveal

The study is almost finished so I thought I'd post some photos for you

This is my new workspace.

Still a bit messy but that's because I took the photo before I disposed of a lot of the packaging from the new equipment and before I tidied up all the cables

Prior to the plasterer arriving, MONT put in extra noggins to help strengthen the wall so we could put brackets up without the chance of them falling off....

The wall was also insulated before the plaster went up, even though it was an internal wall. In fact we've insulated all internal walls at Number 10.

looking into the study from the back hallway
Plaster is up and extra power points and wiring put in....That pipe you see is flexible conduit, so we can easily pull wires through without damaging the wall.

The new window, all painted

My new workspace...

I can't wait till I work out how to operate everything! Steep learning curve here at Number 10

It's still a bit of a work in progress....I still have to paint the other half of the room and I've got someone coming out this week to measure up for a small blind on the window; probably a slimline venetian...anyone got other ideas or suggestions? I was going to make a curtain but thought a blind would make it feel a little more "officey", seeing MONT will be using the room as well.

So there you have it. Half the study completed....and the other half will be done once the floor in the back hallway hardens for a couple of weeks. It's fine to walk on but I don't want to start putting anything really heavy on it until I know it's completely hardened


  1. The study is looking great, really light and fresh. You could have any type of window covering you like in there - but I find the more options I have, the more confused I get!

    1. Oh I know what you mean about options. There just appears to be too many these days. They make it so much harder than it needs to be

  2. It's looking great Lesley. I think a venetian blind would be useful in a study because you can angle it to let in light but not glare?

    1. Yep, you're right Melissa...I think a slim line rather than a micro will be in order

  3. Your study is coming along nicely Lesley. I agree with Melissa about the blinds, very useful in an office. xx

    1. Thanks Nellie. I think you're right. A venetian will allow me to angle it to let in light but keep out glare


I love to hear your thoughts.
