Creating a space where I can be creative and work on projects has been such a fun aspect of our home remodeling over the last year. You can see how this space used to be when it was our bedroom here and even further back how it looked before we renovated the entire room at the end of this post. I've slowly been adding pieces and decorating but it really started to come together when I showed Adam my ideas for a large white desk space. He ran with it, drew up plans and then built this beautiful piece for me. Gosh, I hit the jack pot with this man!!
Just to clear the air. . . I promise you this space is never this clean -- haha! I usually have 27 different projects strew across the desk and the floor is covered with trains and crayons and left over chip pieces. I guess that's a nice thing about blogging your space. . . it forces you to get things put in their place. At least for the afternoon.
I love how a few unique pieces can really bring a room together and create a atmosphere that speaks to you. That is why I feel so so grateful to be collaborating with my sweet friend, Sandra from SM Art Shop. She sent me some of the most beautiful prints to put up on the office walls. My two favorites are this bicycle print and of course this lovely watercolor print of a summer in Paris. I feel like her art gives such a pop of happiness to this space.
Be sure to check the end of this post for your own chance to win your own print!!
