I have a fondness for antiques, especially those of the Victorian era. This old secretary desk, painted in the shabby chic style appeals to that sensibility. I like the way that the old fashioned desk that was designed for analog writing with paper notebooks and pens is being put to modern use with the apple laptop. It is a place that I would feel comfortable composing letters or working on a chapter. How about you?
This is the “Victorian Organ Command Desk” that was commissioned to be built for its owner. It’s made from bits and pieces of Victorian detritus that was collected including the carcass of a 19th century pump organ. Read more about it at Urban Titan.
I’ve been a fan of This Old House for many years. I came across this story of a victorian-era house that was filled with melted wiring and soggy plaster. The experts at This Old House did a lovely remodel, including this author friendly writing space up on the third floor. Read more about it at This Old House.
