You guys!! Lets talk home offices, shall we? I’ve always wanted a home office, but lets be honest, I never really needed one. Now, however, I need a space to sit down and plan my work. Plus, we have accumulated so much paperwork! Between shot records, old hospital papers, and random medical bills, that show up 3 years after the date of service, I just cannot dare to go digital. I like my hardcopies y’all!
My home office inspiration is pretty straight forward. I’ve already purchased this desk from World Market, The Josephine, and I LOVE it. The top is glossy white lacquer and I can’t get enough of it. World Market is proving to be the only store I need in my life!
The thing about farmhouse styles are, they all have white accents. White furniture is crisp, clean, and simple. The color of this desk will make my open home office, the former formal dining room, flow with the rest of my house, like my breakfast nook table for example.
I’ll add some shelving units and a big clock on the same wall as the desk to add some dimension. The shelves will give off more of my industrial look. My husband will actually make those industrial shelves, it’s super easy and all you need is galvanized piping and your choice of wood. I’ll link the tutorial at the end of this post!
Im also doing a cute little gallery wall of some of my favorite printables, which will be a surprise till its finished! My office furniture will have a modern/industrial feel, accessorized with minimal farmhouse decorations.
Which is what I want, because It’s really the first room you see when you walk into the front door.
Another big factor, thats getting changed ASAP, is the dreadful light fixture, another “first see” when you walk into my home. Its got nearly 10 individual lamps throughout the entire thing and fake metal tassels hanging from each lamp. It’s being changed to an orb light fixture.. Although I can’t decide between a metal or wood one. What do you think?
Thats it for now! I don’t want to give too much away, Im trying to knock out these inspirations before we move in on Friday, but if I don’t, I won’t leave you hanging. As I’m unpacking and setting up you can bet I’ll have my camera on hand.
