I’m so glad to be participating as a linking participant in another One Room Challenge. This will be my third time to take part in the crazy fun and I’m very excited! You can see my first ORC reveal here and the second one here.
This time around I am going to transform my home office. We moved into our home a year ago and we have a beautiful room right off the Foyer with French doors and no closet that was technically supposed to be the Office in this home. However, I am an interior designer, and this job creates tons of mess and needs lots of space. I don’t want that mess to be the first thing visitors see when they come over. So I am taking over one of the upstairs bedrooms for my actual, functioning office. Here’s how the new office looks now:
We’ve been using this room as a workout room, but I recently fixed up our garage and we’ve moved the workout equipment to that space. That left this room pretty much empty, but I just added the white Ikea corner desk. The pink and white desk is my daughter’s old desk and is just in here until I can find a new home for it. The only other thing besides the corner desk that’s staying in the room is the World’s Away chandelier. I had my electrician hang it in place of the builder ceiling mounted light that was here when we bought the house.
I want to show you some rooms and images that are the inspiration for the space. I’m planning on keeping the walls, floor, desks, and storage neutral (whites and beiges.) But I want lots of accents in pinks and golds, similar to this office:
My other two inspiration spaces are two offices from previous ORC’s. I love this office by Beth Connolly of Chinoiserie Chic. Most of the furniture and large surfaces are neutral, but there are still many pops of color to keep it lively and beautiful.
And I also love this office by Andrea at the Glam Pad. Her Lilly Pulitzer inspired office would be a great place to work.
Thanks for reading. Please go to Calling it Home to check out the other linking participants and the Wednesday ORC participants. Please tune in next week when I hopefully have some progress to show you.
