Our Office Before & After

I am so excited to share our home office before & afters with you today, feels like such a Monday space to share, right?! Brandon works remote so he spends a ton of time in this room, he wanted a darker green paint color, I pulled a ton of options (including some light purples that he shut down pretty quickly!) but we settled on Coney Island by Behr. It is SO pretty and we are super happy with it!! Brandon built another desk, a little longer than the one we had in here previously, so that we could use our old one for the girls coloring table in our playroom/family room (sharing that room next)! We work in here together a lot so having a ton of work space is important, mostly so all of my piles of junk don’t get too close to his tidy side.

Here was the office when we moved in, super modern with built in office furniture, an exposed ceiling (which I did sort of like but it felt off for this style of home) and super funky lighting. It was also carpeted, which we pulled up and had hardwoods laid to match the rest of the house!

And here is the office now! Dark & moody, but also super fun & functional!!

sources: wall color: coney island by behr // chandelier // leather recliner  // tassel blanket (similar here and here)// curtains // curtain rods // desk chairs // poetry stick // diffuser // bunny ear stand // to do list paper pad // drink more coffee pennant

This was a really fun space to design because it is very closed off from the rest of the house so I felt like I could go a different direction with dark paint & fun accessories. We still need to find a rug (and agreeing on a rug might be the hardest accessory to ever choose for our home!) but we are so happy with how everything turned out. Another room checked off the list!!

Hope you loved this little tour!! Hoping to share a full Fall home tour in the next few weeks as we wrap up just a few more projects! Happy Monday, friends!! XO

      The poetry stick says “Just in case you ever foolishly forget; I’m never not thinking of you”, and we love the table so much!!

    Super random question–but what perfume do you wear? I want a new scent and know you will wear a great one, such great taste you have! 🙂

    Absolutely stunning. The dark color is so inspiring! With the white trim and natural light, looks like this will be a color we choose in our new home! Also that photo of the family is so darling, I find it so hard to choose a large print but that one is so natural, I adore it. Your style is so fresh and true, thank you for continuing to share! Well done!

    Such a beautiful space! I’d love to have a designated office space like this in our home. I absolutely love that coffee cup print! Is that one of yours?

    You always do such an amazing job with your decorating! You’ve inspired me to paint our bedroom Coney Island! I love the color. I just went and got the paint. However, the paint looks so much lighter. I’m a little scared to start painting. How many coats did you do in the office? Did it dry a lot darker?
