Warm tones, rich colors and a sprinkle of mid-century modern. The office design board is completed, and I couldn’t be more excited to see this room come to life.
Unfortunately, there is a LOT of work to do to get to that point! Before I dive into the timeline, let’s review the design board.
- RUG // This affordable Loloi rug is stunning. I was drawn it because of the great combination of colors: rich mahogany, navy, blush, cream, olive, and charcoal. It’s incredibly versatile, and it came in the perfect size for this room. I bought it a couple of months ago when it went on sale. The thought of it selling out in the size I needed was not ok with me, so I snagged it before I was really ready to start this project.
- LIGHTING // The lighting in this office is the star of the show. This chandelier is absolutely dreamy. I needed a large fixture with a lot of lights. I love the modern shape and texture. The sconces are budget-friendly options that work well with the
- DESK // The desk was a Facebook Marketplace find! This one is a similar style. I love the column base and oval shape. It’s a tight space, so I didn’t want hard corners to bump into. I do have to do some refinishing work on my desk, and it will be quite a project. More details to come on that.
- SEATING // This dark gray desk chair and these round stools are the perfect worn velvet. They are quite pricey, so I may try to find a more budget-friendly option.
- LOVESEAT // This dreamy loveseat is from Anthropologie, but I love the soft sage velvet. I’d like to get a similar fabric to recover my existing loveseat one day, but for now, I’ll have to stick with the existing ivory canvas to keep my budget in check. Maybe I’ll rent a steam cleaner to freshen it up.
- GALLERY WALL // I found this ready-to-go gallery wall. It is perfection. I don’t think it will be in the budget to purchase this exact option, but it’s amazing inspiration. I’ll be scouring local thrift stores and shopping my house to achieve a similar look.
- SHELVING // I purchased these cube shelves about a year ago. I would love to install gorgeous built-ins in this office, but I think I can do a DIY on these and make them look so much better. More details to come…
- PAINT // The walls will be Benjamin Moore White Dove like the rest of the house. Sherwin Williams’ Uncertain Gray will go on the French doors, and Mount Etna will bring new life to the bookshelves.
Below is a list of the timeline and anticipated budget.
Finally, I’d like a plan for how to keep this bookshelf tidy, including possibly labeling the cubbies in a unique way.
