My Home Office Reveal!

Thursday, June 6, 2013



FINALLY, I have my office to show you. You may remember that this used to be a (largely) unused living room with four chairs in a circle. I liked the way it looked, but like I said, we didn't use it much. Also, my 3 feet of office space at my kitchen desk wasn't cutting it, and I really needed more room. So, after considering it for years, I finally changed the living room into an office.

I started with this rug, ordered a desk, painted the ceiling black, and ordered the daybed.  I had the two pink benches (the fabric here is just draped over them - once they are sewn it will be really finished). The daybed just came in this weekend, so I thought I'd show you the pretty-much-finished room.

Looking in from the kitchen:



Looking in from the front door:


And from the desk chair (that black table in the kitchen was just there for a moment and is now in the pile of stuff to sell):





So, now I just need to save up for a laptop and I'll actually be able to USE the new office :)

UPDATE: Here are the answers to where I bought products:

Holy smokes! That is ONE glamorous office, I am super jealous (and inspired) in a great way:) That is one of my big goals, to make a beautiful office, I have a small little nook in my master but I have long outgrown it, totally busting at the seams!
You must LOVE your new office and be so inspired. What a gorgeous space to be productive. LOVE it Stacy!!

Absolutely gorgeous! That room is so glamorous and sophisticated! I noticed you have built ins and I have a question. Is the chandelier centered between the windows or is it moved over more because the built ins bring the center of the room in? I have been debated between built ins and a free standing bookshelf and my electrician mentioned something about needed to shift the ceiling light fixture over if I had built ins. Thanks - I hope that doesn't sound too confusing!

Stacy,
It looks amazing!! I recently have been thinking about using my living room as an office and yours gives me so much inspiration!! We sit in there to visit or to read or talk on the phone so it could be used as an office/sitting area.
Love the ceiling treatment and the chandelier in your office, stunning. Great job as always.
Now I am going to go back to finding a ship for the family room, wish me luck,
xo Kathysue

I love that you took a traditional space and decided to make it function for you.

Your office is incredible. I would love to have a space like that but right now my kitchen counter must suffice until we are done with our renovation.
