For our office, my boyfriend Dieter designed a custom marble bookcase as a feature piece. The MDF shelves are 4 metres long with marble dividers on each shelf. Because we’re working and living here 24/7, we really wanted our workspace to be comfortable and nearly done as soon as possible. That and the fact that painting around the marble is quite the expert job, made us decide to hire someone to do the painting. I must say I’m really pleased with the result, the whole thing looks amazing.

In the long run, we want to add some closed storage to the space, as well as a midcentury style sofa bed so the space can double as a guest room, but all in good time. I’m really curious to hear your thoughts on our first completely finished project, hope you like it!
