New Office

July 15, 2014










Well it's official. We're all settled into the new office having changed my previous one into the nursery and this one I had to keep a little more neutral because Andrew and I are sharing. I should start by disclosing this room isn't at all staged and styled for a post but shown as you would see it on a daily basis. This room was previously his "man room" with his music gear, computer and we had a foosball table but knowing I needed a designated space to work, we had to rework some things. We ended up donating the foosball table to our youth group but managed to keep all his other items in this room once it was reworked a touch. We painted.... and when I say "we" I mean I painted.... and pulled in the furniture I had from my old office. All together, I think things turned out great but it's definitely a challenge staying inspired in such a bland space. Still some getting used to as well as a lot of pinterest browsing to stay motivated! I do have to say, it's nice on his days off when we're both in there working together. We may be doing busy work, but it's more convenient spending time together!

  3. I think it turned out great. It's sweet that you let him keep some of his manly things, even if they aren't all that pretty ;)

  5. I love your use of the room, it turned out great with a his & hers sides, and blended a bit on the shelves. Your desk looks like a wonderful work space!

  8. I love this! I'm in the process of redoing my office and am painting two of the walls white because the other two are brick. I was worried that the white would be too plain, but I think it will open it up a ton and now I have some inspiration to keep it neutral and glam! Looks lovely! xoxo

  9. My husband and I share a little office space ourselves. It is nice to work and turn around and your husband is sitting there as well. It's a nice feeling. The office looks great and I can only imagine it will get better as time goes on.

  10. I am in the same boat- except my husband's office has to be in our BEDROOM! He works from home, and his office used to be in the guest bedroom. But that was getting too crazy, so we had to move it. Luckily, our bedroom has a great spot for a home office- but it's so challenging to integrate his "manly" stuff into our white/silver bedroom. Yours looks great!!!

  13. That is one thing I miss about our old place, we shared the den as an office area. In our current home, my desk is in the living room, where his is up in his man cave. I am hoping we can have a shared space or something in our next home. I love the little gallery you have on the wall of family pictures.
