Red Wonders! - Can you tell us the pattern on the tea cup? It is so sweet and lovely! Also, what textile is used on the window seat cushion? You have put together such a wonderfully haphazard collection of patterns and textures. Thanks for sharing. »
The pendant light looks like a Seppo Koho (Secto Design)? I have been trying to connect with Stylepark (FINLAND) to find out where to purchase in the US. Please tell me where you found this light fixture. Thanks.

This is the idealized image for me of what working from home "feels" like: a sunny spot at the family table where you are present with your loved ones but also able to produce work. (Idealized being the key word.)
Make it comfortable for multiple uses. This inviting kitchen nook combines a window seat, fun throw pillows, classic mid-century Danish chairs, great lighting and a cheerful color scheme. The result is an inviting command post, homework center and dining spot.
Each fixture is expertly hand-crafted from birch and is available in natural, black or white finishes. Interior designer Kristen Rivoli has added the Vecto Light in natural birch to the mix of woods in this breakfast nook. She also brought in some Danish design via the Hans Wegner Wishbone chairs.
2. Use power strips — and turn them off when they're not in use. Power strips can help avoid "vampire" energy use that occurs when devices continue to suck power even when they are off. Have trouble remembering to switch them off? For a little extra money, you can purchase a "smart strip" (like this one from Belkin) that will automatically shut off power.
