My office! Well I guess I can say “our office” since Steve does use the secretary as his desk. 😉 It finally feels complete! This was a catch-all space for awhile before Steve’s recording studio was finished. We had our desks, random furniture, musical instruments and more in here. As soon as he was able to move all of his stuff out I got to work on the room! So as you look past the dining room when you walk in the front door, you look directly at the wall with the sofa. I wanted it to be visually appealing of course, but I wanted to be unique too since it is such a focal point. I thought wallpaper would be an amazing finish on this wall and when Walls Republic approached me about collaborating I was ALL IN. I was able to pick out a bunch of samples and if you follow me on Instagram you probably saw me trying to select one a few months back! I decided to go with this Ivory Zebra for a few reasons:
1) I’m all about keeping spaces light and bright! The walls are darker in this room than anywhere else and I didn’t want a heavy or contrasty pattern to suck any more light away!
2) In real life, it shimmers. Yeah, it’s almost like a slight glitter. Obsessed.
3) The texture! I love how subtle but how beautiful the paper is. I ended up hanging a painting I made above the sofa and I think it’s a really nice focal point for the room!
I like that we both have workspaces but it doesn’t feel like an “office” per se. It’s functional, but most importantly it’s pretty!
And because it’s fun to see a true before and after… here’s our office BEFORE we renovated, they used it as a dining room!
