It's My Office, I can Overdecorate and Clash if I Want to!

Don't fret, I definitely have more cruise pics and info coming your way, but today is an office update and decorating idea kinda day!!! YAHOO!

So last time we were in this bright white office space, we were still cleaning and finishing things, but now it's pretty much done... as far as the "bones" are concerned, and it's time to DECORATE!

As you can see it's really just a big ol' blank canvas right now... but I LOVE it already! I mean all that white, and all that bright!? gimmie, gimmie!

Currently I'm trying to figure out who's going to fund all the money that I need, in order to afford all of my expensive, modern glam taste (ugh, freakin' decor can be so expensive)... but till then, I'm dreaming of the following things that I want to happen in this space.
1. 2. 3

As much as I love that super chic, naked lightbulb dangling from the ceiling look, I'm hoping to replace it with one of these lighting options above. Eeeek! I mean, seriously, I can't decide which one. They ALL give a different vibe. The Zgallerie light says "chic, modern, sophisticated", the Shades of Light chandy speaks to my eclectic, art deco loving heart, and the drippy crystals (plus the lower price tag ) of that Overstock beauty on the right seems more fun and airy.

On the wall behind me with the large window on it, we've plumbed for a sink and wired for higher outlets to allow for a workspace/craft countertop!

I'm super crushing on this adorable white sink with black countertop duo from the craft room makeover on Natalie's blog. 

I could definitely get this look for super inexpensive with the Domsjo sink from my Ikea in Draper. And how fun would some brushed gold hardware look on it!!! Ohhhh yeahhhh.

And yes, I'm totally missing my farmhouse sink from the last house :(

So then on the window in the office, I'll probably keep it light and just stick to my favorite white grommet curtains from Ikea and add a simple, low profile curtain rod - something like this one from Zgallerie

Okay, and this element I'm really excited about. Joss & Main had a big event with removable, peel and stick wallpaper, and I snagged a bunch of the black dottie pattern that I'm crushing on right now! I'm thinking that I want it on the same wall as the window, but I can't 100% decide yet. 

I think the wallpaper would be SO cute with some of Plum Street Prints' new canvas art. I love the happy, carefree feeling that these canvases give, and it's the perfect way to add a splash of color too!

Speaking of color, I have to say that I've been really inspired by parts of this particular photo. The contrast, overall sassiness and splashes of gold are SO me!

That being said, I think the deep pink and a bit of animal print will be something I'll try in here. Maybe a low-pile rug under my actual table or some fun pillows in the white bucket chairs.

I'm still trying to decide on the exact chair I want for myself... more on that later ;) 

Now... if you're thinking: "Dang gurrrl, this is gettin' kinda busy, don't ya think? Art deco light, antique rug vibe, modern sleek desk, contemporary chairs..."

Then... I'm on the right track :) 

I know, I know, it's a lot. But cute follower @sweetaftonstudios from our Instagram feed gave me some great advice after I voiced my concern of not being able to pick which exact pretty color or decorating theme to go with in this small space... and I LOVED IT!
Duh! Why didn't I think of that. ;) 

So what if it looks like a Dalmatian, Cheetah and magenta marker exploded in here. It's MY space, and I can overdecorate and clash how I want to, right!?
(are you now singing "It's my party, I can cry if I want to"?... yeah, me too.)

... now about that bottomless bank account that I need to find. Wish me luck - ha!



  1. Love how you're just going with it! It's your space so YOU should love it! Great ideas! I think it will look fabulous!

  2. How exciting, I love everything you've picked out but then I always do. I wish I could decide what my vibe is exactly. Getting ready to put on an addition which I'm so excited about but I have no idea what to do with it. I simply like too many styles. :o( Suggestions on where to start?

  3. You have some wonderful choices to work with., I look forward to seeing the big reveal. I invite you to share at my Thursday Favorite Things blog hop . Hugs! P.S. Congratulations on being one of the top DIY blogs to follow in 2015

  4. Dude, you know the animal prints, pink and gold are so me too! Can I come craft with you!?! I can't WAIT to see it! Love the direction you're going mama! xoxo, Mallory
