The Beginning Of My Home Office...

Happy Wednesday!
I am so thrilled to share a little project I have been working one since January. It has taken a little longer than I expected, and I have a few more things I would like to add to this space, but here is the beginning of my little home office.

Back in January I cut back at my dental office and have only been working a couple days a week. I have been focusing more on what I need, as well as lots of blog projects! Once I started working on my blog more during the week, it was obvious I needed a dedicated space to work. We had a spare bedroom we weren't using and figured it would be the perfect place to make my dream office come to life. 

I quickly started pinning lots of office ideas and came across this gold leather chair from Meelano. This chair was the star for all my office inspiration. I knew I had to have it for my office! It looks even better in person and it very comfortable! Comfort is a huge thing, especially since I spend lots of time editing photos and writing blog posts in this chair.

I also knew I wanted a white desk that had some accents of gold. I originally set my sights on this gorgeous desk from Rachel George, but it is a little out of my price range at the moment. So I decided to take a desk I liked and make it my own. This Alex Desk from Ikea is very affordable ($129), and it exactly what I was wanting. I bought a couple cans of gold spray paint, and sprayed the legs of the desk before I screwed them on. It turned out perfectly and made the desk look high end!

The hardest part was picking a rug! I am very picky when it comes to decor, and I seem to change my mind a lot. So picking rugs are the hardest part. I knew I wanted something more on the neutral side so I could add pops of color. I have bought all my rugs in my home from RugsUSA. I saw this grey rug and it seemed to click! I love how it ties the room together.

I have plans to add shelves, a printer, art work and maybe a bench. All those things will come in time! I can't wait to update you on my office. I love working in a creative space that represents me. It is a space that is beautiful and gives me lots of inspiration.
