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….

We have also used this room for this HGTV Halloween Party shoot and Kate’s Mermaid Birthday Party.

      I ADORE the dress artwork! I had a hard time deciding whether to use them here in my office or in my daughter’s room, but I loved them so much I had to have them where I could see them all day! Thank you for your sweet words!

    I simply LOVE your girly girl style! Such a pretty place to work! I can’t wait to decorate my office as soon as our house is build. It’s like hard to look at Ballard boxes knowing what pretty things are in there. xo

    It all looks amazing. Makes me want to redo my home office. Didn’t I read last year that you moved your home office to a commercial space?

    LOVE! Such a happy beautiful space. Love me some Pottery Barn too and Home Goods for sure. I use my formal living room as my office and I really enjoy being in the main part of the house as well. Plus it makes me keep things more tidy because everyone can see it. Great job.

    Gorgeous. I don’t know how you get any work done in there though. I would just sit around gazing at the beautiful space around me. :)

    Love the chandeliers, can you tell me if they are the Clarissa glass drop chandelier or the Clarissa “small” glass drop chandelier from Pottery Barn.

    Thank you!!

    Hi Kim, great room! Random question, what kind of computer do you use? what is your computer preference? specs? I am looking into getting a new one and I have no idea where to start! It is going to be a gift, so I have been trying to do some research … and thought I would start by getting some advice from you. Thank you in advance for your help!

    Hi – Where did you get the table/chairs from? As popular as white is I can’t find anything and everything I find on Craigslist to refinish is round or oval and not rectangular like I want. Love this office! I wish all PC’s were all-in-1 like macs so I didn’t have to find a way to hide all the monitor, speaker and hard drive cords!

    You are so interesting! I don’t believe I have read through something like that before. So good to discover someone with unique thoughts on this issue. Really.. many thanks for starting this up. This website is one thing that is required on the internet, someone with a little originality!streetdirectory
