Happy Almost Back to School! Wow. I really cannot wrap my head around the fact that my kiddos start back school in two weeks. And ours are one of the last schools to start back! What happened to Summer?!? Although truly 99.99% of me is sooo sad my girls are going back, there is that little .001% that kind of enjoys getting back into a routine. Particularly a work routine. I always feel a tad bit of guilt when we get back from our Summer adventures and I have to work from home while they play. Probably silly I know but that mommy guilt is always something I struggle hard with.
One thing I knew that I really wanted to accomplish before the big first day was my home office! As you may have seen last month on the blog or over the last several weeks on my IG stories, I have been working hard to get this room completed. FINALLY!!! Working from the breakfast room table for the last year and a half is probably not the most productive work situation and being that close to the refrigerator is well… dangerous. LOL. While we were away in Europe in June, I shared one room update but I am happy to report that a whole lot has changed since then!
For this room reveal, I teamed up with World Market to create a work space perfect for juggling my blogging, designing and business owning life. A place that inspires me to be creative and get organized! I cannot even tell you how excited I am just to have a place to keep my pens! They currently get hijacked by my five year old at least five times a day. So that is exactly why I chose to complete this space with World Market. They have everything from office furniture to office organization, desk accessories and decor like frames and wall baskets. And as you may have seen in my IG stories this week, I scored something from every category all in one hour at World Market!
In creating my office, the design all started with this beautiful antique desk that I inherited from my grandmother. I always think of her when I see it so I wanted it to be the focal point in this space. From there, I chose this rug and these cute pink chairs to create a soft yet modern color/pattern scheme. Next up, an office chair that I ended up finding at World Market which I LOVE! It’s super cozy and rolls which is perfect for an office space. Next I found these beautiful zinc hanging frames that instantly inspired an idea for my office and for some of the paper that I purchased in Europe! I loved the idea of breaking up the shelving visually by hanging frames on them and since I LOVE color and pattern, I decided to fill them with this gorgeous paper I purchased in France this Summer. It’s funny because I had sworn off this geometric print and even mentioned that on IG Stories because of the geo print rug but ended up loving that one most! I think it’s the difference in scale of prints that for me makes it work with this rug. To complete the space, I found all kinds of goodies to fill the bookcases and organize my desk from World Market too! Here’s a peek at the space along the way during our renovation and then TODAY!
