Office Preview

If you’ve been following my tweets on Twitter, you may know that I’m re-designing my office.

I’ve removed stubborn wallpaper, painted, assembled furniture, disassembled furniture, fixed a leaky pipe, and patched the drywall — well, actually my wonderful, patient husband has done most of the work.  The old carpet has been removed and the new flooring is in place.  I’m not quite finished but progress has been made.

I’m really loving the new color palette.  In a roughly 10 x 12 space, I managed to use three of my favorite paint colors:  lavender, aqua and chocolate brown.  The colors are serene but the combination is fun.  I couldn’t resist posting just a few sneak-peak pictures:

  1. I have a similar sized space and had a whole color scheme planned until the desk arrived and “antique white” was really quite yellow and it threw the whole thing off! I am determined to have a very feminine space and got to thinking of lavender and sage (paint samples are now up on the wall and I love it!). Anyway, it’s so hard to find anyone else doing an office space w/lavendar – I love how you pulled the brown into this though! I never would have thought of that – more to think about!!! I hope you’ll post photos soon of the completed room. I love your ideas!
