Do you remember my new chairs for the office that I showed you last week? I was pretty much at a standstill in this room until I ran across them. Click HERE to see more.
Well…that was only one side of the room. The other side of the room is a whole ‘nother story.
See that big ole blank wall? That’s just one of my problems. I can’t figure out what kind of art to put on it. One large piece? Several large pieces? Or a gallery wall? Would a gallery wall be too busy right beside those bookcases? I keep thinking that I’d love to find a ginormous vintage looking map to cut into four pieces and place in frames in a group, but I can’t find one.
Another question is what to do with my bookcases, if anything. Paint them? Back them with a patterned paper? I’m happy with the way that they’re arranged, but I just can’t decide if they need something more. Keep in mind that the you look straight at these from the foyer.
And then there’s this. Looking from the dining room into the office, you get to look at our lovely printer, shredder and wires that go with it all. Oh yeah – and another blank wall.
In some ways, I feel like the office is a sea of brown – floors, desk, bookcases and part of the chest holding the printer – with some black accents thrown in – the lateral file cabinet between the chairs (see the photo at the top). Do I need an area rug to break all of the brown up or would it be too busy? The room is only 11’x15′, so not very big. Should I just paint something, but what and what color? I’m pretty sure that Pookie wouldn’t be too happy if I painted the desk. Plus it gets a lot of use and would get scuffed up pretty quickly.
So what say you? Can you help a girl out? I’d love to hear your suggestions!
