The DH’s Office Reveal…do you like it?
The new ICU is open and Gerry’s office just about finished! Between running around in the ICU and High Care, I managed to finish bringing up all the furniture etc, and adding plants, pictures, a music centre and other nick nacks . All in all, I am quite pleased with the outcome, although it should be said that the staff were pretty frightened of the colour when it was first painted 🙂 I think it looks completely different when filled with furniture…
Although a smallish space, I managed to get all the necessary items in, including desk, cupboard, chairs and sleeping chair. I would have liked a nice big leather couch, but even if the office was big enough, it would never have gotten through the doorway and passage!
In planning the space, I really wanted to combine the old and the new. The strong orange and chocolate colours are ultramodern when combined with the stark white perspex and other accents, but I really wanted the feeling of some “history-filled” pieces to balance the modern feel. The battered, multicoloured cupboard comes from India, as does the bicycle wheel clock. Gerry’s chair (although a reproduction), adds an “old” element, and is really very comfortable to sit in.
