I’m just over the moon excited about my new office space. A whole room for all my computer stuff and space to be organized too. How great will that be? You got a sneak peek of the green walls being painted and now they are all finished and I can’t wait to show you how fun it’s going to be.
It’s hard to capture the green correctly, but it’s a custom color that I had Sherwin-Williams make for me, a vibrant yellowy-green, called Fennel. I decided to leave off the bi-fold closet doors and paint the inside a happy turquoise color, Larchmere by Sherwin-Williams.
My plan is to add an Ikea bookcase of some kind inside (to be determined) with baskets and bins for storage (in white, that should look great against the pretty blue).
Here’s a peek of the dark brown doors with my office wall colors. Only one coat on in this pic, but it’s looking good.
Here’s what you see when you walk in the room, lots of pretty green.
I decided that far wall was the perfect wall to stencil and I used the Large Moorish allover stencil from Royal Designs that I used in my sister’s bedroom. Here’s a tutorial I did when we used this same stencil in my sister’s bedroom, go here.
One pretty wall of ivory pearl stencil and it’s a standout. Do you like? I sure do! Now, here’s the really fun part. I can’t move in here yet, we still have to do floors in this room, but can’t you just see it all coming together? In case you need a little visual help, here’s my inspiration board, with all the elements that are going to make my office dreamy, happy and functional. Click on the pic (done in Olioboard) and it will show where everything is from:
You can see the Ikea Blad panels are really going to brighten up the space. I added a striped rug, but am not sure which rug will end up in here. All those little fun details will make a huge impact on my office space. This is my existing Target desk, with a white chair similar to mine. The Ballard shelves I already have, and I’ve added a cute chair just for funsies. That wall clock I bought from Joss and Main and it is so cute. Check out those pretty black botanicals too! I’ve got some super fun plans for those and I’ll share that project with you real soon. You’re going to love it! So, that’s my office space plan! I hope you like it as much as I do. I mentioned that I’ll be doing a lot of blues and greens (my two fave colors) in this house and the office will come alive with color when I’m finished with it.
It’s hard not to get excited when I see this chipcard that I got using Sherwin-Williams’ Chip It! tool!
You can get the Chip It! button just like the Pin It button for Pinterest. Watch the video, then drag the Chip It! button below to your toolbar:
I’d use it for my son’s room. He’s getting older and it’s still a toddler’s room and I’d love to make it a nice space for him.
We are reprinting the upstairs master bedroom in our new house which is currently the most horrendous shade of dusty rose
I would love to redo our laundry room. It’s one of two rooms that we haven’t touched since getting married over a year ago. It’s a room that is used often, because laundry is never ending, but it’s the room I dread going in to.
I’d redo my den or kitchen, because those are the rooms we spend the most time in as a family.
