When I was a little girl, I always loved playing with my mom’s desk. It had all these fancy little drawers and slots for things like photo albums. (Remember photo albums?! Weren’t those the days?!) Fast forward 18+ years, and my mom is giving me the desk so that I’ll have an official “office” to do my blogging in. Since I don’t have to purchase an actual desk, I’m excited to buy a few little goodies to spruce it up a bit and make it my own. I don’t like buying lots of pieces at one time, because I feel like it makes a room look too “done,” so I’ve been picking up pieces here and there.
I love structure, so I’ve created a mood board to figure out the feel I want for my office area:
I started by picking my colors – white & gold, with pops of pink. The white and gold are soothing, and the pink is a good way to add my personality to the room.
My first order of business is updating my desk. The cushion for the seat is a cream color, so we’re going to change it out for a nice shade of pink. From there, I’m going to change out some of the knobs that have gotten a little worn.
I’ve also decided what my “non-negotiables” are for my desk are. I think great bookends are important, because I plan on putting my prettiest motivational books on display. I also want a cute tape dispenser (the big clunky black ones give me nightmares about wrapping presents with my mom at midnight on Christmas Eve,) an inbox (super important because I am messy,) and some coasters (because who wants water rings all over their desk?!)
Here are some pieces that I really love, a few of which are featured in my mood board:
Do you have a home office? What’s your favorite thing about it? If you have a post about it, I would love to read it!
Happy Tuesday, y’all!
