Progress In The Office

| |

Here are all the recent updates and progress in the office.

Things are starting to come together in the home office with the addition of two new chairs!

This is what my office looked like when I last showed it to you in November.  It sat that way for quite a while.  At this point, we had added a lateral file cabinet between the existing chairs, but that’s about it.  I really didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do in this room and then inspiration struck when I came across these chairs.

You might remember my Not To Miss Steals & Deals At Target blog post, where I mentioned that a certain someone had ordered two of them.  Of course, that certain someone would be me!  They’re very affordable and can be found HERE.  I’m really pleased with the look of them.  They are very sturdy and so easy to put together that I was able to do it by myself.

The armchairs sit directly in front of the desk, making for easy conversation when one of us is working.

The lateral file got a new look by changing out the round black knobs, that it came with, for some pulls that I spray painted gold.  The sunburst mirror was located in the foyer at my former house and the lamp was in the living room.

When you are in the front of the house, the office serves as a bit of pass-through between the foyer and dining room.  Standing in the dining room, you look through to the foyer.

I’ll be adding a drapery panel to each of the windows behind the chairs at some point.  But that’s a ways down the line as my sewing room still looks like it did the day that we moved in!  Baby steps, y’all.  For right now, I’m just pleased as punch to have some inspiration for this room!

    uzy, I think you were the first blog I subscribed to a few months ago and am so glad I did! It was your beach house caught my eye and I saw one similar in original condition for sale on CL that I was considering! You did WONDERS with that and I bet it is an awesome retreat from these hot summers here. And, it s ON THE OCEAN!
    I much enjoy reading your ideas and seeing your projects. I live in NC and so being in the same area, its very helpful that you have similar weather and other regional similarities. I know if something works for your home’s conditions, it will mine too. – i.e. you mentioned the yellow pollen; I can so relate! I enjoy your embrace of color when so many of the blogs now are farmhouse chic and all linen, all the time is just too neutral for me, I enjoy those too but I need color!!! SO, I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for the time you put in to sharing all of what you do with us out here. I greatly appreciate it!!

    1. Hi Michelle. Thank you so, so much for your sweet remarks. You totally made my day. I’m like you – I have to have some color going on. As much as I admire their beauty, I couldn’t comfortably live in an all neutral room.

  5. Those chairs are awesome! Love your office 🙂 thanks for sharing at #inspirationmonday

    I vote yes to the rug or layer more than one. I think a diptych or triptych behind the desk because you have the one mirror on the opposing wall. I say paint the insides of the bookcases. Leave the outsides wood because they seem to tie in with the desk and that would keep everything from looking too random and more intentional. What about a corner cabinet for your printer? It would be deep enough to hold the printer and the cables. I do think you need something tall on that side to balance the tall cases on the other side. So, there you go… just do everything I say and you will be fine. 🙂

  7. I love the chairs. I think they look great in your office.

    1. Thank you, Trish. Now I just need to figure out what to do with the rest of the room!

  8. Nice job on the update! I’m inspired. Thanks for sharing with Thursday Favorite Things and hope you have an amazing weekend!

  9. What a nice look, everything is very conducive to a productive work environment. It would be a place you look forward to spending time and doing your best work.
