Setting up a new loft room study

Now that I am in my second year of a Post-Graduate diploma I have amassed a massive amount of books, papers, files and other church history related material and need to create an office room where I can arrange my desk and bookshelves. Up in the loft room is out of the way, up a wooden staircase to the room where my son doesn't go and I can have some peace and quiet. 

The room needs a new coat of paint, white to bring more light into the room and a few new items to create a cosier space to sit and do my studying. I already have a bookshelf up there and so with a new stationery and some glitzy homeware items the space will be my reading retreat. I have a VELUX roof window on one side but would like another from to bring lots of natural light into the room and to be able to look across the rooftops and out over the surrounding fields. It's also a great place for watching the night sky and having a relax in the evening.'s the logical place to create my workspace in and I've been looking online for items I'd like to personalise the space.

When it gets a bit chilly I like having a snuggly woolly throw to hand, this geoprint one in goldy tones looks very snuggly and a new mug for a  cup of tea whilst I write my history notes is essential. Keeping with the metallic theme, a few beautiful stationery accessories for the desk to inspire me to plan and make notes, store my history magazines and keep my pencils. Coppery and rose golds tones will make my study area look really feminine and keep with the light and airy feel of the room. The storage boxes from Habitat would be perfect for all the church literature I pick up on my travels and keep them nicely organised as at the moment they are in piles on different shelves and in tatty cardboard files. 
The room also functions as a bedroom so I'd like the study area to not look too cluttered or take over with  With the light from the VELUX windows it is ideal for reading in each season and as a place to rest. I'd add some metallic cushions onto the day bed in here, so the shiny star cushion would add some character and accessories such as the copper globe to break up the stacks of books and add some features to the room. 

As soon as Little Bird is in school this will be part of my home improvement plans, so whilst he is learning and playing I will now be decorating and decluttering. Hopefully before Christmas I will have some new room looks to show you.
