the farm: my office update

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 🙂ReplyCancel

  • 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.ReplyCancel

  • 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.ReplyCancel

  • 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.ReplyCancel

  • 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.ReplyCancel

the farm: my office

My office has been a bit uninspiring. With big houses and the DIY couple, plenty of projects get undertaken but seldom finished on time or all at once for that matter. So is the case at our house. I have not finished decorating my laundry room. I still need window treatments, accessories and the mentioned…

    I think you might have gotten the same effect with a hot glue gun!!! LOL!!!ReplyCancel

  • I really don’t think it looks bad in here at all. I think all the white would really work with some of your pieces up on the walls.

    Can’t say Im digging the carpet too much but you could put down some engineered click floors yourself. I did it in my last house’s basement and it wasn’t nearly as hard as I though it would be. And a little sparkly light fixture would finish the room nicely.ReplyCancel

  • Yes, I think it will look nice too, once I decide what to put up as I have 3 months of whiteboard calendar from Pottery Barn to go up somewhere also (it’s gotta be functional for me as well).

    The carpet, while it’s not horrific, is not the best choice for someone with dogs (we have two). It attracts every bit of hair and for sanity one must vacuum it at least once a day! NOT my gig. Yes, I could go with those floors and that may not be a bad idea, considering the wide plank we want is still quite a few years off and it’s presumably best to have them all done at once – as in, the entire downstairs.ReplyCancel

  • OR – maybe a nice rug 😉ReplyCancel

  • Any suggestions for the windows? ReplyCancel

  • Looks awesome!!!!! If you are ever bored, grab your caulk gun and head over, I can keep you busy!ReplyCancel

  • […] new office inhabitant brings much needed color to my newly painted office.  (Not much else gone on in here folks.  Stay tuned…hopefully I’ll have some idea of […]ReplyCancel

cell phone shot of the day

Today’s cell phone shot of the day is a contribution from my old scouting partner and loyal brother in law, Joe (A.K.A. “Earl“). Joe has recently moved into this deliciously decorated cubicle full time and was nice to send this to me to show me his work environment. Now, we know that this cannot possibly…remotely…
