A little while back I shared my craving for bold dark accent wall. In the middle of my chaos, sometimes you just have to do something different, walk away from all the current business you are swamped in and do something fresh. I showed a sneak peak of my updated home office space yesterday on Instagram, and I'm here to give you all the details today!
The last time you saw my home office space it looked like this. I think though in order to have a work space that is inspiring to you, it has to reflect what is currently inspiring you. Just because it's an office is no reason it should lack in design, and not be pleasing to the eye. In fact,
it may inspire you to want to come in, be productive, and stay a little longer.
Having a comfortable work space just means great productivity in my mind.
I am inspired by lovely spaces, so when I go to create a space for my clients, I need to be in an equally inspiring space. I fill my office space with all of the things that are currently inspiring me the most. Textures, patterns, accents they all play a part.
Painting the wall black (Iron Ore by Sherwin Williams part of Pottery Barns new paint color line) was the first step to creating my inspiring the space. Then I brought my favorite pieces back in. My white desk (an old Target find), my chippy architectural wood salvage piece, my diy linen memo board.
Bringing in personal pieces and things I love most help the space truly reflect me. White framed pictures of my babies keeps them close to my heart while I'm working away.
Some other favorite pieces I bring in that inspire me most and keep creativity flowing are favorite fabric and paint swatches, an inspiration photo of an office organization, and of course my favorite Lindsay Letters "Creativity" print. It inspires me, it stirs my soul, and keeps me on track.
Next are the extra pieces that splash my design love throughout the space.
My diy leaf wreath, a card stock pendant flag banner (Hobby Lobby), even down to the calendar and planner (Target), they all reflect my style and taste.
The added decor, makes work feel less like work and more like fun, which who am I kidding I love what I do. Wework is another company that feels the same way I do about this. Their locations are so inspiring to work in, and they bring forth not only functional work spaces but inspiring environments. Inspiring others to Love the Space the Live in, is not only my motto, but my passion.
I think we all know how much I love stripes, so that was a no brainer. The curtains I made, but the lovely striped pillow is from Shabby By Melissa on Etsy, probably one of my most favorites!
The table lamp is part of Better Homes & Gardens line at Walmart, yes walmart, and the cute little metal birds behind it are from Pottery Barn kids.
At first glance you wouldn't think of maybe bringing all of these elements together, but if you use things you truly love, you are bound to love your space. And right now I am loving this space.
Don't forget this monday starts my week long of Thanksgiving Tables, with a grand finale on Friday with 13 of my favorite blogging friends. Make sure you come back on monday for the first table!
