Home Office Design Ideas

I want to warn you guys in advance that I am not going to be posting as often as I used to.  I am considering a new opportunity (completely unrelated to this blog) and I have to take time off to think about it.  You never know what a little itty bitty blog can do which led me to this new opportunity.  I never did.  My husband never did......but God works in miraculous ways.  And here I am contemplating life and what I really want to or should do with it... what we should do with it (now that I am married, I have to do the "we" thing...haha).

In the meantime, I'm going converting one of our bedrooms into a home office between Christmas and New Years.  We always needed an office in the house and now is the perfect time to do it.  We currently have this spare room we use as a laundry room so our lazy selves do not have to fold laundry and we can leave it hanging around or in baskets everywhere.  Sounds lovely huh?  I think we can make much better use of it.

Here are some of my ideas....

I really want a Louis ghost chair.  What would drive me to spend $400 for an uncomfortable looking plastic chair?  Because it looks oh so pretty!  I have to run this by the husband (crossing my fingers).



Cool artwork.  I haven't decided if I want a big art piece hanging on the wall OR.....



Lots of various pieces hanging on the wall.



Can I please get a cool chandelier?  I'm obsessed with chandeliers.



Bookshelves for all my books too!  Yes, definitely need some of those.  I like how there is a mirror hung on the bookshelf too.  You know... so I can check myself out while I am working.  I'm totally KIDDING.  But it would look pretty if there was a mirror hanging or some type of artwork.



I probably have to figure out a way so that the whole office isn't totally fem so Mat can use it too but I haven't figured out how yet.  Still thinking.....

Ah I hear ya! I'm moving into a new apartment next month with the BF and we are making the loft our "office space". Ugh, HOW does one incorporate all the girly amazingness into the office while allowing the boy to make it a "manly" space too? So difficult.

I LOVE Louis ghost chairs! I wanted them earlier this year but never got around to it. You can find no-name brands on Amazon for a LOT cheaper. And what's the new opportunity??? Share!
