My Home Office :: Decorating

office before

I am so excited to share a few photos of my home office with you! This is the space I spend the majority of my time in while I’m working. It is the best room in the house (in my opinion!), I think my husband would disagree! This room is technically supposed to be our formal dining room, but we have a nice breakfast room off of our kitchen so when we moved in, we decided I could use it as my office. It is so nice to be connected right to the kitchen and greatroom so that I can be working but still in the center of things. I love how bright and open this room is. I had all of the furniture when we moved into this house, but this room really came together when we did the baby shower shoot for Pottery Barn Kids in the space. We added the Pottery Barn chandeliers (one of my fave elements of the room) and ivory silk drapes before the shoot. This past summer I spotted the graphic black and white rug on Gilt and knew it would really finish the space. Along the way, I’ve added art and accessories from my happy place, HomeGoods. A few months ago, we used this space for our One Room, Three Ways for the Holidays for DIY Network and we had time to put the office back together and photographer, Jessica Downey got some great shots! I hope you like it….

  1. [...] Why do I like this space? The geometric pattern on that rug, the colour on the walls, those solid shutters in a dark wood, setting off that caramel-ly taupe on the walls (yes I said caramel-ly). That tiled floor, the amount of natural light in the space and can we take a second to be suitably dazzled by those chandeliers?! Wooo, I’m loving this entire room (that was expertly put together by Kim Stoegbauer from thetomkatstudio). [...]

  2. […] Here it is! The “Dream” Christmas Tree I just decorated for the Michael’s Dream Tree Challenge! I was so excited to be asked to participate in this year’s challenge. What could be more fun that getting a jump start on holiday decorating? I had so much fun shopping at Michaels, looking for inspiration and deciding on a theme (like 2.5 hours of fun!). Thank you to all of you who helped me make a decision (on Facebook) to go with the “Let It Snow” theme. As you can see, I went with a white and silver, glittery style. I absolutely love how it all turned out and now I’m debating whether to take it down or just leave it up in my home office! […]
