So Friday night we had a work party for our company APF, Inc. Mark found this fun place in Athens, GA called The Escape Room (or something like that). There were eight of us and they led us blindfolded into a room called “The Hangover Room”, which is no way, shape or form compared to the movie, thank heavens. Well on second thought… unless that had involved Bradley Cooper. Hmmm… Those baby blues. Swoon! Okay, back to reality. So they locked us into this room and we had one hour to get out. There were four puzzles and a room full of clues. Although we did NOT in fact make it out, we came soooo close and it was actually a lot of fun! Great idea if you’re looking for something fun to do as a group. I think it would be rather impossible to do with just two people though. From there we went to dinner at Last Resort in Athens which is AH-mazing and got in pretty late. Saturday we celebrated AddieBelle’s birthday with two of her friends at Rush (trampoline play zone), lunch and a cute little cupcake place. Two family Christmas parties, church and now I am exhausted just writing it all out again! So that’s our weekend in a nut shell.
Today I am re-visiting my chic and colorful office renovation and giving you an update! I first shared my “Office Reveal of the Century” back in August. Hopefully you’ve all recovered from the color shock of that post. It is probably one of the most AW style rooms I’ve ever done. Print, pattern and color to the max! Just like I like it! It was about 99.5% complete at that time. And then in September I shared the addition of a cute little hanging swing in the post “Just Hanging Out”. Now it is finally all finished. I’ve rearranged a bit and added some fun art pieces as well. When I think about selling and moving I had to admit that this is the first room I usually get sad about leaving behind. I have always wanted a fun, chic office space and this is pretty much everything I have ever dreamed of. It’s fun, whimsical, bright and always gets my creative juices flowing. I recently did a fun little interview for an office feature and here’s a peek at that. I will be sharing the full feature and interview soon!
- Describe your office space: My office is my own little creative wonderland. As a blogger and designer, this space inspires me to be creative, to think outside the box and to be truly unique. I love that my two little girls also have a fun space to be artistic and be inspired to think and create to their fullest potential .
- Where did the inspiration for your office design come from? The inspiration ultimately came from my obsession with combining colors and prints. I love to test my design abilities to the max and see how far I can go in creating a wonderland of a space. The initial inspiration came from my desire to have a striped ceiling somewhere in our home. Next I fell in love with the floral wallpaper and the design just fell into place from there.
- What is your favorite part/design of your office design space and why? My absolute favorite office feature is the rolling ladder. I love that it adds a touch of whimsy and as well as somewhat of a rustic touch. And it doesn’t hurt that my hubby made it for me!
