Office Remix

For the last I’m thinking two years, my office has looked as such. I have been thinking that I am up for a change. There are certain aspects of the space that must remain, which means the space will have to include touches of black. I want to use what I have, and only buy window panels, and accessories. After that. Its me and white paint.

Below is what I am thinking as option #1

So what am I wanting this time around? Well, I am needing my office to be more functional for business, rather than just eye candy. Let me take that back..EYE CANDY FIRST, functional second. Sorry, that’s just how I roll in that office (smile). If it doesn’t look good to me, I wont find myself drawn to it. But I notice when I do work in the office, there are aspects of it that are not functional. I need proper desk storage because I have a zillion note cards, papers, and envelopes. The current state of my bookshelf seems to be magazine storage because I hoard magazines. From design, to fashion, to music. If you’re looking for it, I probably have it. So I am thinking of throwing some out, and letting the shelf hold more pretty things, rather than old magazines. The above is just the first option. Option two posts tomorrow.

High Fives & Hugs,

YOUR SO CREATIVE, CAN YOU COME TO THE BUCKEYE STATE AND DESIGN MY OFFICE/GUEST ROOM!!! CLEARLY I NEED YOU!!

Margaret said...

Love the idea of the campaign desk. I think it would look awesome with your black ghost chair, good mix of styles. Can't wait to see the finished project!

Sing said...

I love your desk now. But I understand, storage is key and I'm sure you'll find another place to use it. I like the new colors, the salmon would add a lot of girlyness to the room.

Meant2B said...

That campaign desk is to die for! I can't wait to see it painted up - lots of pictures please.... kate x

Dayka (Life +Style) said...

excited to see your other options! the storage in the campaign is great, but the surface will definitely be smaller than what you're used to (since i have that same one!). i'm also bringing up my old sideboard and repainting it, because i STILL need more storage, but the drawer help me keep the surface clean, so the lack of space isn't that bad.

That salmon/coral color is nice...but a big change from your green. Good luck Tam...I'm sure it will come out great whatever you decide.

The green was nice, but I think the salmon pink would look really good. Can't wait to see the outcome!

Brooke's Closet said...

Yes Ma'am!!
The REMIX is nice.
Grey/Salmon along with the other two colors will be nice!
No more green right! Go with Salmon and let's do this.

Just what a girl needs a REMIX!

Leigh Lane said...

Well Tams, if you decide that beautiful studded black chair is going I would GLADLY purchase it from you in a heart beat! :)

stumbled across your blog and your taste in decor is SICK! I need some of that to rub off on me!

If you think you'll ever have to go back to those old magazines for inspiration: Archive, Archive, Archive. You should need no more than 1 box and stash them in the garage. That way you can keep your treasures and vamp up your space at the same time.

I still have the short lived issues of vibe vixen and Suede (which was ahead of it's time)

Bri@Meyouandawiener said...

Well I'm sure you know what I'm thinking! Definitely Salmon Pink! Love, love, it's just a happy color and really fun I love the choice hopefully you choose it as well.

Tam,

I love your office but sometimes you need to change things up a bit and I agree that Salmon is sexy! and you already know I co-sign on the grey ;)

OMG, I hoard magazine's too! (Mags are my vice) hubbs hates it. At least you have an office to hide them in (in my next house that will be a must!)

Can't wait to see option #2.
