I appreciate that my husband wants to be involved in decorating our home. I really do. But I have to admit that I was thrilled when he gave me free reign to decorate the office.
This room, on the front side of the house, was actually a guest room in its past life. It was peach, plain, and fairly unimpressive. But it also happened to boast the house’s one-and-only walk-in closet, so that put it in high esteem in my eyes.
Brad and his dad put in beautiful crown moulding, and I had no trouble picking a paint color. I knew I wanted a lavender-gray – feminine, but not overtly so. I ended up with Misty Memories by Benjamin Moore, and I absolutely love it.
So, this is the view of the room from the hallway.
The ceiling fan isn’t my favorite thing in the world, but changing out light fixtures isn’t super high on the priority list right now.
Quite a bit of my previous projects from the blog ended up in this room.
Sadly, my no-sew suzani print curtains are way too short for these windows. They’re up there for now, but they’ll have to be replaced eventually.
My DIY glitter art fits just fine, though. Thank goodness.
You can see some of my abstract art rejects lying around the room. It’s like “Where’s Waldo?”
There are a few new DIY pieces scattered around, too. Expect individual posts about those, coming soon!
Moving my vanity to this room has been win-win for the whole family. I can use as much lighting as necessary without waking Brad up in the morning, and I get plenty of storage space for my beautifying tools without cramping his style in the bathroom. Plus, putting on my perfume in this room exclusively means it smells amazing.
I repurposed a chrome over-the-door rack (formerly used for purses) to display our half marathon medals. I figured they deserved better than sitting in a nightstand drawer.
So, that’s the office! It may be my favorite room in the house. If we ever have a baby, it would have to be turned into nursery, and that, my friends, is enough to make me want to remain childless for a very, very long time.
Josie is on board with that sentiment.
What’s your favorite room in your home?
