In my last post, I showed you my mudroom and my plans for the updating the space. The other room that needs a love in terms of design and organization is my home office. I am absolutely ITCHING to get this space in order, since I work from home a lot (and working in a disorganized space drives me bonkers!). Up until this point, I had kind of been leaning towards painting the room my favorite shade of navy blue - Benjamin Moore’s Polo Blue - that I used in the big boy’s room in our old house. But honestly, going dark wasn’t 100% sitting right with me. I’m just really feeling more bright and fun vibes for this house! (Except for the boys bedrooms… but that’s another story for another day.)

Anyway, I already have many of the elements for the room… Two leaning white ladder shelves from my old house, white floor lamp, a large white framed pinboard, and a million gray picture frames for a gallery wall. I basically need to choose the following three things to update the room: Desk, walls, and a rug (and maybe a few accessories to tie it all together!)

Serena and Lily just released some new items, and their new Owens Wallpaper caught my eye IMMEDIATELY! I just love the color and the pattern… It’s super fun, but there is also something classic and calming about it. Assuming I went that route, I think the Restoration Hardware French Paneled desk in Aged Oak would be a beautiful complement to all of the white. My dresser and nightstands are a similar wood tone, so it would be nice to bring more of that into the house as well.

Eventually, I also want to add a built-in unit of some sort along the back wall that can hold (and HIDE) my printer, a small TV, and several file boxes with all of my important documents.

I’m not 100% sure I’m going to go this route, but I ordered wallpaper samples and wood swatch samples, and I plan to sleep on it for awhile! What do you think?

And though I’m a LITTLE embarrassed to be showing you another extremely messy room in my house, here is a picture of the office as it currently stands… Can you see why I’m starting to get antsy to get these rooms functional and beautiful?
