Office Redesign

March 12, 2011

I finally redecorated my office and am trying to finish it up now.   I am so happy with the results.  I spend a lot of time in this room, so it’s important to me that I like it.

Before, it was bright yellow and I wanted something more sophisticated and calming.  I painted it “Sea Salt” from Sherwin Williams.

I still want to get a new chair so my dining room can have it’s 8th chair back.  I’m thinking about getting a Parsons chair with a cool fabric.  And, I need something for one of the walls, the problem is that I have too many ideas and still can’t decide.  It will probably involve photos of the dogs.

Here are some more photos:

I really like pussy willows and think the river rocks are beautiful.

My desk has lots of storage and lots of desk space. And, I got to pick each piece to make the desk, so that was cool.  My shredder is hidden away, I have a place for my scanner without it being on the desktop.

I love photography, so I put shelves on one wall with four large prints.  I can display my photos and change them out frequently.

I desperately needed some shelving, so I could stop having piles of things on the floor.

I love having a chandelier in my office.

I decided to lay out some of my favorite quotes and print them.  I need friendly reminders every now and then. This is my absolute favorite quote and I want to live my life this way.

This one is particularly special to me in light of our battle with infertility.  Sometimes I find that courage and sometimes I don’t.

What’s not to love about this lamp?


Ok, prepare yourselves, because here’s the before. I think it’s a huge improvement and it’s much more me.

Now, I have to figure out what to do with the masks from Puerto Rico and Costa Rica.  I will probably put them in Erick’s office.

    Your new office is beautiful! I love the little personal touches like the pictures and the quotes.

  • Your new office looks great. I love the chandelier. If you want a nice chair, check out Stein Mart. I used a 20% off coupon to get a chair that I’d had my eye on. It’s upholstered in a Parisian fabric.
