A Sneak Peak At My New Office

I realize that it's been a little while since I have revealed another set of before and afters on the home remodeling front, and while I would love to say that it's because I have been busily working away on getting it completed, it's really quite the opposite. You see, Daylight Savings and I have always had this unspoken deal that once it arrives, I obey it's demands of doing nothing past 5 pm. And so I don't do anything except watch movies like Knocked Up, 27 Dresses, and Sleepless in Seattle while eating key lime pie ice cream with a side of peppermint tea. It's quite magical really, however I just noticed an hour or so ago that my butt is getting significantly flatter and resembles that of the mom jean look, so I'm kinda thinking something needs to happen. I'll let you know when I find a solution. In the meantime, I thought I would share a small glimpse of what is becoming my office. I am only showing one half of the room because the other half is still waiting for some TLC from yours truly.

I am loving this space of mine with pops of color spread randomly throughout. I have always been a fan of fun pieces and I love that I have this space to house all of them [something about my husband not wanting a giant gold heart in our living room, I don't know]. 

Once I have the entire office completely finished I will be back for more and will share all of the details on paint colors, fixtures, preferred wine drank while working, and all that good stuff. 

Thoughts so far? 



  1. I'm absolutely loving it! I can't wait till we move into our new house & I get to completely decorate my new office! It's the one space I feel like I can make as fun and girly as I want without having to hear the hubby complain :) I can't wait to see your office all finished!!

  2. Love love love! I am obsessed with the teal ceiling and also with that light! All sorts of fabulous!

  3. Super hot.

    Love the decal. Actually, I love all of it.

  4. Loving your wall art- especially the "YOLO" and "like a boss"! I've been wanting to properly decorate my little office space, and this gives me some inspiration to do so. Can't wait to see the finished product!

  5. Super cute! I'm loving that big gold heart!!

  6. I love that big, gold heart!! Looks great - can't wait to see the rest!

  7. CUTE. Although I see nothing non-manly about a giant shiny gold heart, do you? I mean, I know they say that "real men wear pink", but I think "real men put bigass gold hearts on their walls" is a more accurate statement.


  8. The ceiling. The bold, meaningful art pieces. It is perfect! I love seeing your house come together, but don't do anything rash like hold off on the ice cream and tea just so we can see more of it.

  9. Looks great! Can't wait for the full reveal! ~Ree

  10. I love the big gold heart and the light!! xo

  11. So cute! I saw your insta post about the gold heart and instantly checked out Urbanwalls. I will be ordering their gold polka dots for my new living room very soon!

  12. I love it! You make me want to have a home office. So cute!

  13. So cute! I love that chandelier! I'm moving in July and the one thing I really want is an office space..my current apartment has no room :(

  14. Oh my goodness, so pretty! What a great place to get work done!

  15. I love your space. I'm so jealous. I need an office that's not located next to my bed. I also love your rule for daylight savings time. I might steal that.

  16. Love the painted ceiling and the big gold heart - what a fab space to spend your working hours in :) XO, D

  17. Love the ceiling color! Cute office.


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
