My home office space has been in need of a little revitalization lately. If I’m being totally honest, this space had become an extension of my laundry closet, which is in the same room. There would typically be a laundry basket or two in the room, along with clothes strewn on the chair. It definitely wasn’t working for me or my creative juices. My little study was soon becoming a room I was avoiding instead of a room to create and generate ideas.
I came across a company recently called WeWork, who has some awesome office spaces that offer some awesome inspiration. If you aren’t familiar with WeWork, they are a co-working company with shared office spaces all over the world. Looking at their spaces inspired me to make my work area more special.
I started to look at my little home office and think about what would make me happy. I am thrilled with how the space turned out! It has a great mix of vintage elements, which I love, as well as some fun prints, and meaningful mementos. It has become an amazing space to work in.
A lot of the larger elements I already had on hand. Mom painted this desk for me a while ago and I just love it…it is so us I think. I also already had the Capri print that I got for a great deal at Tuesday Morning. I have also had this rug for several years that I got for a steal at the Pottery Barn Outlet…it’s my favorite in the house!
I already had the cork board, but instead of hanging it up on the wall, I decided to lean it on the desk. I used some vintage postcards from our wedding that are meaningful to us. I also love the quote “The Best Things in Life Are Not Things”…it is such a great daily reminder. And when mom and I saw this “Bloggers Gonna Blog” print we had to get it! It’s from a great store called The Beehive, which focuses on local artists…such a cool store. I also could not pass up the adorable gold sparkles clothes pins that I glued onto the cork board!
I think my favorite part of the room is in my new globe! I have been wanting one for a while and on a recent trip to Desperate Housewares in Atlanta (again a store you need to check out) I feel in love with this one. The colors are so vibrant and it has such great character…
I don’t know about you, but we subscribe to quite a few home decor magazines…I thought this would be a nice way to display them
It’s nice to refresh an area in your home…for me it really breathes new life into the space and makes me more focused, calm, and creative. If I could add anything else to my home office I would have to say I wish I had space in here to actually make it a craft room/office with lots of DIY supplies. A girl can dream
What would your dream home office look like?
