No, this isn't a post about my bedroom, but about my office after shots where the design magic happens. Yesterday I spent most of the day cleaning my office. Not only the top of the desk, but cleaning out all the files inside and figuring out what could stay and what needed to go.
Here are the results of all my hard labor yesterday:
Close-up shot of desk area. I now have space on the desk for my drafting tools, laptop, cellphone, current design books I'm reading as well a change jar, which I'm using to save up some $$$ for a .... Ghost Chair. I've already broken the news to Jon.
I love that I now have everything out in the open. It use to be pain to figure out where I was going to draw up floor plans because the desk was always so cluttered, but my now my daily items are out there ready to get used.
It's also great to have storage on the wall. The hanging organization pieces were actually purchased at Ikea in their kitchen section! The cups hold my scissors, pencils and pens. The hanging basket holds papers that need to get looked at and not forgotten. Currently it holds a folder with all our tax info, because we have an appointment tonight to get that done, paperwork for a test that needs to get run by the Water company, plus most exciting was in cleaning and going through old paperwork I realized that a furniture company owed me $275 for a delivery charge on a dining room set that had been returned! I had completely forgotten about it. So once I get that $$$ returned it will be going in my chair fund!
Here is a shot of other side of the office:
I moved the white ottoman downstairs to open more space. Then I moved the zebra x bench from downstairs to the office. I also moved the peacock feather pillow up from the living room. I love shopping around my house. I'm constantly moving items around to give rooms a quick change and see what looks best in the room.
Thanks to everyone's great response to the color in the office and how they like it the way it is I'm going to leave it as is for now. We have a Florida room or 3 season room or screened in patio. Everyone has a different name for it. This room is slated to get heating put into it, plus new french doors and will be home to my office/design studio. Since it looks like Jon wants to make this a project for this coming summer. I'm going to hold out for now and use my design ideas for that room.
For right now I'm just going to make a couple of tweaks to get the office picture perfect for my portfolio. Audrey is going to have to leave and make room for a bigger cork board. The wall above the chair is going to house new shelves so that I can organize all my design/work papers, etc. Once that's done I think I'll be a happy lady.
