My Home Office

Saturday morning was so bright and sunny. I opened the panels, and said today is a picture perfect day. So I took a few snaps with the light shining brightly on my room. Every photo looks 1000% better where there is natural DAY LIGHT. Looking up at the memories on this wall with an old issue of Domino, and a glass of tea set it off for me.

This room is easily attainable, and can be done with a small budget, and local stores items.

**I am happy to announce that my office was a winner of a WEST ELM contest**

Wow, your office is awesome. I love the green color and the way you placed the pictures on the wall. I am inspired to paint and get some pictures on the wall. Love the chandelier too. Nice!

You know I love an inspiration board! lol!

Girl I wish I had an extra room for an office, for now it's my little corner in the living room!

I can't imagine that desk not being there either! It is such a perfect fit for the room.

Great pictures! thanks for sharing! The sunlight definitely adds another dimension and really makes the room look beautiful.

I love the parsons desk as well! That's on my list of things to buy for my new condo. Not sure if it'll be a mini or a regular yet. But I love the look

LAKEITHA said...

I love the picture of your desk with the photo gallery behind it. And the chair for your desk was a nice addition!

Adrianna said...

WOOOOOWW, This is beautiful! So chic and edgy boutiquish. Where did you get the fab EVERYTHING? lol, really where did you get that pillow on the settee (which is gorgeous itself)? Girl, U R def. gettin it!

And just out of curiosity, are you going to put in a rug (not that u need it)? If so what type? Print, woven, fur...etc

very cool, with tons of personality. you definitely have made the space your own.

Shop Gal said...

I have always loved the West Elm Parsons table. I had planned to get one for my own home office, however I ended up buying a black lacquer dining table with the same lines as the Parsons desk. I bought it along with one of the dining chairs from Target when they use to have their Global Bazaar event every year. There is so much space for my computer, printer, and anything I am working on. I LOVE IT!

Royal Empress said...

Thanks for sharing these great pictures. They are inspiring for my at home workspace. Keep up the great work!

ToyaB said...

I love your sense of style, I too have an inspiration board full of people and images that inspire me. And I also agree the parson desk is sick, I have a huge L shaped desk that I'm trying to talk the honey into putting into to storage so I can have a parsons desk.

BellaLovesPink said...

Your office is pretty amazing! I'd love to have a personal space like that!

Where'd you find the bookshelf and mirrored side table?

Tom Stephenson said...

Nice office, Tamara.

SC said...

I told my boyfriend a color scheme of black and green would be so cool for our office. Everything in there is what I thouhgt about doing so crazy! :-)

Califabulous said...

I sincerely love your style! I have been checking in here and there in a non-comittal way and had secretly loved every minute. I finally started following you! It all started with the shoe posts. I saw a pair of black Lamb heels you ordered from Ru La La and so began my love for TamStyles. THANK YOU for sharing :)

Rolerkite said...

what a great space. Love the birds on the wall.

Hilary Dow-Ward said...

Oh my gosh, I've loved the parsons desk from west elm for ever! I've only really seen it displayed in the polished white, but I absolutely love what you've done with the black, it looks fantastic! What green paint is that?

Charlotte said...

I love your blog! The office is great. I love how incorporate black with the picture frames, the desk, and the bookcase. I painted my trim black but am now second guessing the decision as it was already a small room and now it looks smaller. Anyway, I was wondering how you have the opposite wall decorated with the door. This is my real dilemma with my home office. I'm not sure if I should get rid of the door so that I have more room on the wall next to it or what.

Storibook Designs said...

Very cool that you won the West Elm contest. I think I've seen your office featured on other blogs too. I think I'd be spending my time on that little settee.. I love that little nook.

Shoe Lover said...

I want your office - it's awesome!! The pictures, the desk, the couch where you can lounge and be inspired. Beautiful! This will be my office inspiration.

Workout Junkie in Training said...

MELANIE said...

Tamara I love your office. The green color is the same color that my dining room was for the past 2 years...I just painted in Seagull Grey this year. The gallery frame wall is gorgeous, I have a family photo wall and it gives me that same feeling..btw I love so many of the photos. Your DJ chick is hot too!
Ummmm that grey sofa looks exact to the one that was in my green room at the Nate Show...its in the Elizabeth Edwards room (look for it.lol)

I use a vision board...same concept and I love it and it helps me visualize my goals in many different ways.

I can see you finding my blog was for a reason....we will be good blog friends. I havent even checked out the rest of your rooms. lol
