So, I've had a few people ask me to share photos of my own house, along with organizing and styling tips... it's been hard to work up the courage to post any, because I don't feel like it's pulled together enough to post on the internet for the world to see!!
Alas, since I am a bit of a perfectionist, I doubt I will ever think my house is "done" - hence, I will start sharing with you all now, right along with my plans and decor dreams for the future!
Since Monday always feels like back-to-work time, I thought I'd start with our home office. It is extremely small, so we've had to be creative in our use of space & storage.
Above: I love our Pottery Barn Bedford desk - it's the perfect size and the white feels so clean... the inspiration board is continually updated... we rotate between an exercise ball and this folding chair - not ideal for hours of editing pictures, but we have our eyes on the Herman Miller Aeron Chair! :) Below: I repurposed this adorable little pot as a pen holder - love the bright chartreuse! Below: I'm obsessed with pretty stationery, and I've always got a million notepads on hand to jot down ideas or lists... the hanging baskets from Ikea (got those on a tip from one of my sister-in-laws:) are a cute alternative to clunky plastic ones, and I love that they get the folders up and off the desk. Below: We found these magazine organizers at Ikea, too... of course, I have my Domino collection nearby at all times. ;)
We originally had a white version of this shelf in our office, which looked much cleaner, but I decided I had to have the white one upstairs, so we moved this one down... maybe we'll replace it one day!
I couldn't get a wide angle shot of the entire office, so here's a peek at the view out the window...
Okay, now you know where I work. :) Off to get something done now!!
