Let's Design Together


Here is where we left off in the office project! If you are following along I should tell you that designing a space one piece at a time is a very long process, but fun if you have a true love for design. We still need seating and some storage solutions but doing it this way has been really interesting and I end up falling in love with each piece, which is nice since I spend so much time here.

I finally received the rugs that were back ordered for so long. I added a studded console, screen, desk chair and a beautiful bamboo light fixture...


I added two mercury glass jars I found at Marshalls Home Goods to the studded table. I plan on filling them with flowers seasonally. Nothing makes me happier than fresh flowers. I also found that even while we are designing I need my pencils handy, so I filled these chic all-black pencils from poppin in a mercury glass jar I originally got at terrain. (Dear creatives, I am equally fussy about office supplies so I love the all black pencils and don't see myself using any others. ever. I also use this ruler which is amazing.)


Megan and I thought the office needed a bit of classic to it, so we choose this monogrammed beauty from luxury monograms. (Seriously amazing gift ideas at this site) The real ceo of the office seems to enjoy it:


The last thing we added is a limited edition tray by Tilly Maison.
I filled it with my address labels, a thumbdrive and some neon tape. All things I use daily. 
It can also act as a catchall for other things.

 
What do you think so far? I love it... 
and hope you will use this step by step for a room of your own.
More next week!

I love your eye for detail. Everything looks wonderful. For me I would love a pop of color somewhere, but I think the fresh flowers would do the trick.
