My office space is so different from the rest of my house. I wanted a domain of my own that felt cozy, feminine, and a place where I could display as many niknaks as I wanted. I was hesitant to share my office post because sometimes home decor can be a bit personal, and when you really love something, it’s hard to hear criticism from others. There are things in my office that do not make sense in a style sense, but my office is more than that. It’s my cozy cove and filled with photos that make me happy, flowers from my garden, and a few items that do not match. This has become one of my favorite spots, and it makes hopping on my computer to write a bit easier. When we first bought this house, this room was as plain as it could be. I went back and forth on how I wanted to design it, and I’m thrilled with the results. It’s the first room you see when you walk in from the garage, so I love that it greets you with a colorful hello. The window looks out to the backyard, and it’s the best view of the early morning sun rising.
I’m sure you noticed the knobs. I’m currently waiting for the new blue knobs to come in so I can change out the black ones. Look how empty it was, and it’s so white! Last summer, Kyle and I worked on doing a board and batten wall on this room’s right side. I was shocked at how easy the board and batten project was, and we plan to do the same in our upstairs loft. Lowes sells wood specifically for board and batten. We cut the wood, attached it with a nail gun, sanded them, added putty, and it was done! I painted the boards Boothbay Gray from Benjamin Moore. I absolutely LOVE this color! This will be the last time I ever willingly do wallpaper on my own. Not only did it take a while, but I also am NOT a patient person. I ordered this wallpaper from an artist on Etsy and absolutely loved it. This was a three-day project, and it’s definitely not perfect. I found these cute corner shelves at Hobby Lobby. They have the best affordable home decor. It’s also important to paint the trim board of the board and batten. I left it white at first, but this is so much better. I still need to paint the outlet. I always put fresh flowers from my garden in my little glass jars. They are old yogurt containers. I know they do not match, but seeing things from my garden (my favorite place to be) makes the decor extra special. It’s crazy how the paintings from Hobby Lobby match the wallpaper almost perfectly. I bought the blue swivel chair from Amazon, and it’s so comfortable! I’m obsessed with my big diamond head pens. There’s no way you can lose pens when they look like this! Home Goods always has a good selection of office supplies. I bought the organizer for bills, letters, and paperwork to keep in the corner. It keeps the space a bit tidier. Sometimes it looks like this area was hit with a tornado if I don’t stay on top of it—all Hobby Lobby niknaks. The office light is from Kichler. I’ve been thinking about putting that light in my pantry and putting a cute wicker light in this area. You’ll have to let me know! It may be too much, or it could be super cute! I had to get the stretchy iPhone pic. I made sure they put my outlets on top of the desk instead of under when they built the house. I didn’t want to have random cords hanging over the sides. Our floors are Roanoke LVP. It’s nearly impossible for the dogs to scratch them, so we love them! I used a piece of blue fabric cloth for a bulletin board. I had one hanging there, but it was too much clutter. I love watching the sunrise here. Shelves are also from Hobby Lobby. Everything is always 50% off in there, so that’s why I’m constantly stopping in. This is the coziest lamp! I wish they made them bigger. I hope you enjoyed getting a glimpse into my favorite little office space!
