OSBP At Home: In the Office

I’m taking a quick break from NSS recaps today – but not to worry, I’ll pick up again next week the remaining booths! Now that the Stationery Show is over, I’m hoping to turn more of my attention to getting our house in order, starting with my office! We’ve done very little since we moved in, aside from planting our backyard garden, but now that I have a bit more time for other activities I’m anxious to make the inside of our home more comfortable.

Out of all the rooms in the house, my office will most likely require the least work – no crazy tiles to remove (more on that later), plumbing or electrical changes, or fixtures to change. Just paint, maaaaaybe wallpaper one accent wall, move some furniture around, and get to work! It will be so nice to have a calm little oasis inside the house while the rest of the rooms remain in various states of transition.

I already have most of the furniture for my office, it just needs to be arranged in a way that actually works for the room. My husband built me a desk last summer that is similar to the one above – I love it so much! I already have these CB2 filing cabinets, along with an Ikea Alex drawer unit and a (now discontinued) Effective cabinet to hide my printer and unsightly accessories. The Parsons bookcase will hold my magazine collection and books, along with some brightly colored boxes that serve as my stationery library. Most of the walls will be painted in my favorite shade of gray, but I’ve been dying for an excuse to use Joy’s wallpaper somewhere in the house – the office might be the perfect place! Finally, I can’t wait to hang my favorite prints and calendars around the office!
