Home Office Tour

DSC_2491
So I bought a cowhide rug for the living room, but it didn't look right. Then I thought I would copy a Pinterest image and position it under the dining room table. Kyle hated it, I got pissed that he hated it (I secretly didn't like it there that much.) After much furniture moving and disagreements, I put it in the room I have complete control over: my office! It actually looks the best here.

Before Kyle moved in, I put this desk in the living room in the back corner. I love the natural light in the living room and having the TV on as background noise while I worked. It didn't work so well with boy and dog so I changed my closet overflow room to a more functioning office space.

The fur and pillow were placed here by default. I bought an extra one of these shearling throws just because I like them and once I sold my two living room chairs, the beaded pillow moved from living room chair to office chair and I was like "damn that looks good."

More recently I've become interested in pretty notebooks and thank you/notecards. I write a to-do list everyday and instead of using a standard boring notebook as I've always done (efficiency over aesthetics in my work life), I hunt for a new notebook at Target and find pretty thank you cards at Target and on Etsy. I have the shittiest handwriting in the world too so I should probably stick to electronic forms of thank you's, but I keep trying.

Last week, I learned about the merits of the 3m hook. Kyle opened my eyes to a new way of displaying art without destroying apartment walls and I went a little crazy with them here to hang/display hats and bags that fit nowhere else. Also, this closet holds my light jackets and blazers on the right side and on the left side, the two closet rods hold tops. The main bedroom closet holds all my jeans, sweatshirts and dresses and Kyle's stuff. I also stuff my sneakers and flats in this closet with most of my heels on the two bookshelves converted to shoeshelves.

Looks so fab, Andrea! This room may be doing double as an office/closet but I love it. That pink chair! Oh, and yes for lunch and draaaanks! :) I'm going out of town next weekend, but that should be the last of my summer travels!
