Finally! I’ve made some progress on decorating my home office. Still much left to do but I think I’ve come to a point where I can at least post a notice to myself on what needs to change in here. I’ll post two before images and for those that want to see in better detail…
Looking lovely. I especially like the chandelier 🙂
That looks SO great. I’m going to buck convention and say that you need something totally minimalist for your desk. But yet something with weight and an organic presence. Something like these:
or a laquered white parsons desk.
LOL…I was going to recommend Mrs. Limestone’s desk in her recent post. And here she is! 🙂
I can NOT believe how great your office looks, and wow those shears open the room up so much. It almost makes me want to work! I also like the idea of something minimal since you have some fancy pieces already — I just checked and the “Spotlight” desk is on sale and Crate & Barrel…I like the “crossed legs” design but just not sure this particular desk will work with those very regal chairs! When we closed on our house, our lawyer had very similar — and said he found them IN THE TRASH at a Mason’s Temple outside of Red Bank (Fair Haven) several years ago.
Mrs. Limestone – Nothing like a little bit of sparkle in your day 😉 I want to hang chandeliers in every room lately.
Becky – I’m surprised. Clean lines, open. I’m surprised because I like it – it probably does need something like that.
Shore-Chic Laura – Ah, Mrs. Limestone has indeed fabulous taste 😉 ! You know, I think I’m just now getting used to the main elements in the room, I’m not particularly sold on any of the furniture in this room right now. The chairs need to be painted *something* – and since I have such a play on whites (3 whites, 3 finishes), I need to have something cheery. The finish of these chairs is too dark for my taste. If they are to work in here they must be changed. I need to start doing some fabric research but based on my current work/life schedule that won’t be happening anytime soon. Another great recommendation in the Spotlight Desk.
I really appreciate everyone’s input, this place can become a bit overwhelming to say the least.
Um, ok. This might be the most fantastic office I’ve ever seen. To say that I’m jealous would be an understatement! You’ve got fantastic taste.
