My office

Shelves_MC_e My office is my sanctuary. This is where I come up with all my designs and creative ideas for my childrenswear company Marie-Chantal so I need to be surrounded by inspirational books, sentimental objects and pops of colour. Office design can be tricky, it has to be highly organised yet creatively stimulating. I opted for shelves to organise my creativity and it’s colour coded so my brain can quickly organise my ideas into colour categories. Soothing candles and fragrances are a must for any office space, Figuier (Fig Tree) from Diptique is one of my favourite scents. Muji is perhaps my number one go-to place for organising my life, whether it’s storage for categorising button options for my collection or some simple pencil pots for my illustrations, they have everything!

Of course no office is complete without my Sister, Alexendra Von Furstenburg’s beautiful Acrylic Trays which add a touch of elegance to my storage units. They are so close to my heart so it’s somewhere where I can put my most sentimental objects and key inspirational pieces. A wide range of art and fashion design books are a necessity in my office. I draw inspiration from all genres and across a wide range of art movements. My new favourite is perhaps the RA’s Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse book which gave me inspiration for my beautiful liberty floral prints in my new Spring/Summer collection.
