Time For A Change......

Taking some time off to re-do my home office. It needs it & I need it. Nothing like a fresh coat of paint, a new chandelier, some black accents, new window treatments(linen to be exact!) & a furniture re-do. I'm thinking I can repurpose some pieces from other rooms so I don't have to buy much. Notice I said not much instead of nothing? It's like starting a diet, the first time you say "I can't have that" then you end up binging. (well I do anyway) I'm thinking that if I really want a new piece I can have it, that way I won't end up binging on new purchases! I know, it's a strange way of thinking but it works for me. These photos are from when our home was featured in Romantic Country a few years back. Soooooo much pink aghhhh! Please excuse the cloudiness-they are not the best photos!
Although I was slowly changing things up, I needed to just take it apart & start from scratch. This was at 10:00 last friday night by the way. My husband being the saint that he is painted it the next day in a gorgeous dove white by benjamin moore. I'm still working on the white trim. We are having a dinner party on saturday night so it needs to be all put back together by then. Yes, I do work at warp speed. Trips to Ikea, Pottery Barn & Restoration Hardware are complete so I think I have what I need for now. I'll be back with an even newer blog look (the banner is being re-done as we speak) & a new home office that really compliments the look I love now. Have a wonderful Valentines day! x0


  1. I know I am going to love your changes! Can't wait to see it Chris!

  2. All of this in just one week, plus a Valentine's dinner?

    You have so much energy! I need you to come to my house and whip me into shape-It's also time for me to complete some re-dos around our house.
    I'm looking forward to seeing your office makeover; it sounds beautiful.
