Office Inspiration

With a few weeks left before our move and our current apartment looking like a warehouse - I can't wait for the extra space! Having an extra room means so much - 1. finally a separate office space 2. when we have guests visit they can actually have their own room, not our living room 3. I will have my own closet in our bedroom - all pretty epic things if you ask me! 


Since our current living room space also doubles as our office space, a few of the bigger pieces are going to be moving in the newly designated office, like our leaning desk that has held up incredibly well over the last 5 years & a shelving unit that we currently have behind the couch - like this one from Ikea, but without the wheels.

I'm excited to have a little reading nook with our petal table and wing back chairs that I scored from Home Goods a few years ago - since we aren't planning to have a couch in there, these will be great when one of us (read: Gary) is watching TV in the room! 
Of course just like any room - it's going to need a few special touches that can only be done with shelf styling, which I feel I am horrible at!! I do plan on getting this "New Home" candle because who doesn't want good vibes in their new space?! I was really thinking of doing all white for the furniture with gold accents, but with all our pieces already having the dark wood coloring, I decided to skip the work and add brighter colors through accent pieces. 
Definitely going to add a little pop with colorful picture frames

I've also wanted really pretty bookends for the shelves for quite some time, but don't really want to pay a ton for them - I found a great pair on Amazon for less than $15 AND they come in 7 different colors! 

What else should I add to the office space?

  11. How fun are those bookends?! And yes, a guest room is so amazing! When Knox was born, we turned our guest room into his nursery, and are currently without a guest room. I can't wait to move into our next house for that very reason: to have one! :)

  19. Going to check out those bookends immediately! I have a couple of unmatching ones I've found at home goods over the past few years, but even there they can be expensive sometimes! I love that you're going to add pops of color to the darker wood-- that will look so pretty!

  20. I can't wait to see your finished space!! I love the wall shelves, so pretty! You are going to have so much fun putting everything together!

  22. Having a separate office space is so wonderful!!! We got Chris's office set up when we moved in our current house but mine never happened. The room is basically a storage room and where the dog crate is. Next house...next house. Haha! I love those bookends!!!

  23. Aww love the new home candle! You have to get it haha! I've never seen a desk like that with the shelves! Glad it's held up! So excited to see the new space!! Happy Wednesday!! Xo

  30. I LOVE bookends. I saw some really cute ones at Target the other day and I almost snatched them up for only $10! Now I'm regretting not buying them! ;) I can't wait to see your new place come together - your inspiration is gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love all this inspiration, girl! You're giving me some ideas, too, as we'll be moving this upcoming weekend! So, I definitely relate to your place looking like a warehouse, mine does too, haha! You know, I've always seen those beautiful agite rocks at Homegoods, but have never purchased them. I didn't even think of using them as book-ends! Thanks so much for mentioning this, now I'll defiantly be buying them! I'm also loving the look of those pretty marble-like shelves, so pretty! Thanks so much for sharing, girlie, and I hope you have the best day ahead!

  40. I love all of these! You know my office was done with a lot of gold, so it's definitely my favorite! And that is going to be awesome having your own closet... that was my favorite thing about moving into our current house as well... at our old house we had TINY closets and we had to share. There was no room for anything so I had to use a clothes rack and it was just sitting out in our spare bedroom. It was horrible!
