Office Design Board

If you know me, you know that my style is pretty eclectic.  I never stay with just one specific style in any room.

One of my favorite things to do is mix vintage items with new!

So when I was contacted by Holly, Community Manager from Chairish to participate in their Style Challenge I was more than happy to join in the fun!

Getting inspiration from their collections of ‘Vintage Furniture'  I created an Office Design Board.

The reason why I chose to do an office is because I have a confession to make.
We NEVER use our living room.  It’s basically a fun room for me to display a lot of my pretties.  As far as ‘living’ in it, not so much!  In fact if I was building a home today I would not even have a living room.

Not now, but someday I could see it becoming a lovely office.

Let’s take a closer look:
I would like a room with a pretty white hardwood flooring.

The colors in this rug will pull the room together nicely.

This industrial table is what inspired me to do an office.  Don’t you love it?  I like using things in unusual places.  Oh yeah, I’m the lady who has an old laundry room table for a craft table.  No surprise I picked this!

A couple of art stools should fit perfectly.

The minute I spied this old seed cabinet I knew it was what I wanted for storage.  It’ll pull the red out of the rug.  I love a red and aqua combo!

A girls gotta have a comfy chair to rest her tush.  Isn’t this a beaut?

A sweet wicker side table to sit next to it.

It was instant love when I spied this light fixture made from seltzer bottles.

Now for some accessories.  This set of map pictures are awesome!

I don’t want to clutter the desk up too much, but this globe ties right in with the map pictures.  And this old scale is perfect for holding papers!

11. & 12.
To soften the seed cabinet let’s add a couple of treasures to the top.  I have a typewriter just like this and it is one of my favorite display pieces.  The suitcases could also come in handy for storage.

I can see this room in my mind's eye, Jann. These are all great pieces, and I love the color scheme. That rug really anchors the room. Fabulous! xxx ~ Nancy
