Where I Blog {Office Makeover}

Most nights you can find me here, in my home office, working on my part-time lawyer stuff, browsing design blogs and websites, or blogging to my heart’s content.  It’s also where I do crafty stuff like play with my Silhouette, dream up decor plans for our home, and email with friends.  All from this pretty little (well, actually not so little) desk.  It’s the Jett Desk from Z Gallerie.  It’s one of the first things I ordered for the new house, because I liked it so much!

The chair is from Crate & Barrel.  Amazon has one similar too.


Let’s back up so you can see the whole room!

One organizing challenge the space posed was how to store all my magazines, paper, books, fabrics and such.  Ikea Expedit to the rescue.  It’s a really sleek, efficient, and affordable option at $129 for the 6’ x 6’ size.  Having all your goods out in the open can be visually overwhelming, so I tried to keep the contents streamlined.   I’m sure I’ll be playing around with organizing this in the future.
The unicorn on top is a sentimental gift from my baby brother, Austin, when we were kids.  He was about 5 years old and used his allowance to buy it at a neighborhood garage sale!  That unicorn has moved with me a million times- the horn is chipped, but I still love it because it reminds me of the sweet sentiment.
To the right of the entry door is the Made by Girl ‘Blogs & Coffee’ print that I love to look at from my desk.  Wrapping paper is at easy access in two Container Store bins.
I created this silhouette of my son with the Silhouette machine, but I couldn’t quite figure it out (those point edits) so I had to free-hand it.  If you know how to do this, please let me know!

The two black pieces are leftovers from our former townhouse.  I don’t know if I would originally have added black to the room, but it works okay for now.   The garden stool was a Z Gallerie splurge.  One of those things where, after admiring it for months and it never going on sale, I finally caved.  The lamps are from Target. 

The “media” chest is from Crate & Barrel and currently holds wrapping supplies like ribbon and bows, and envelopes and labels.
I love to have some of my favorite inspirational books close at hand.  I created the inspiration board with a cork board, spray paint, fabric, and thumb tacks.  The acrylic tray is from CB2.  The small clock is from Pottery Barn and the decorative box was found at the Restoration Hardware Outlet.
I guess I’m sentimental about gifts.  Above: The little fish is from my Grandma.  The owl is also in her honor, since she loves how they represent wisdom (mine is from West Elm).  That’s a Tory Burch paperweight that I used a $50 gift card on. 
This mirror was a recent Home Goods steal at $39.  Kinda reminded me of the expensive ones I’ve seen sold elsewhere.
I painted a medallion stencil on the ceiling around the Overstock chandelier but I’m not sure it will stay.  I’ve been considering painting the ceiling a solid color.  Thoughts??  Also, the quality of the chandelier isn’t the greatest in case you were eyeing it.
And my rug- that I LOOOOVE!  It’s from Overstock and so super comfy on my feet, like a pillow cloud.  I had considered other graphic patterns but didn’t like how they felt.  
I made the curtains and then found a great sturdy and sleek curtain rod at West Elm.
Here’s how the room looked when we moved in:
Here’s my Inspiration Board:
And here is the Result:

I’d love to add a little upholstered chair and ottoman at some point . . .  Are we ever really DONE with our rooms??  πŸ™‚   I tried to cover all the bases, but if I left something out or you have a question, let me know!

    I have loved this room since the first little sneak peak. The fabric works so well. You have done a gorgeous job. I think painting the ceiling {despite your hard work on the stencil} would be fantastic. What a cheery place to work from.

    Your office is plain old stunning, Megan. πŸ˜‰ I am a sucker for pretty organization, so I love the way you have the IKEA bookcase set up as well as the media cabinet. Such a pretty room…I could see myself actually getting some work done in there! πŸ˜‰

    Fab! And as far as the silhouette, my husband just made one for me of out 8 month old son-he used the tutorial on Jones Design Company blog-she's uses Paint.net-except we have a mac so he had to use Gimp.net and follow the same steps. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions and I can ask him!
    Also, I bought the Expedit shelf from IKEA for my baby's nursery, but don't want to use it in his big boy room, so now you've show me a new use for it-my craft room! Thanks!

    Hi Megan,

    You did a fantastic job on the curtains. I'm also working on a grey/yellow room and I've been looking for curtains…these are awesome. How big is your window and about how many yards did you use? I'd love to try it out!

    Very pretty! Love the desk and the C & B media cabinet used to store ribbons.

    As for the ceiling color, I'd paint it a soft gray. Take one of the gray colors from the drapes and put it on the ceiling. I think it would look marvelous.

    Overall, a really pretty, feminine room.

    Definitely paint the ceiling. Pick out a blue/grey from the drapery and paint the ceiling. I like the light fixture, but I think you're right about getting rid of the stencil above it.

    I LOVE the desk and the drapery. What a gorgeous room! You're uber-organized πŸ™‚

    Oh to have an office as cute and inviting one day! Where did you get the 4 bins on the top shelf from?

    It's totally amazing, Megan! The color combination of your home office is very attractive. I'm sure you enjoyed every moment working in that awesome office.

    My daughter is a blogger too and she asked me to design her own home office. I told my husband about it and we decided to turn an empty room as her working office. We checked every photos of Charlotte meeting rooms and Charlotte NC office spaces for inspiration. I'm inspired with your photos and this blog post too. Thanks for sharing!

    Your office is stunning! I need to own that desk. I showed to my husband and he agrees! Thanks for sharing your gorgeous space!

    What color are your walls? In the "just moved in" picture it appears very baby, pale yellow. But in the finished space pictures is appears more rich/gold toned. I like the finished pictures, what a gorgeous room. Well done!

    What a beautiful room! I have a Mom Cave in progress and love how you styled your Ikea Expedit – that's something I've been struggling with, so I may have to take your cues and utilize some of your ideas. The curtains are gorgeous as well – I love the print. Well done! It looks like a great room in which to work!

  112. February 8, 2011 / 1:41 pm

    Love you new office! GORGEOUS!! I especially love the fabric for your curtains! The yellow, white, & gray color combo is fantastic!!

  113. February 8, 2011 / 2:53 pm

    Gloriously neat, tidy and beautiful. Everything is in it's place and has a place. The room if full of eye candy and I think you did a fabulous job in making this room functional and so beautiful.

  114. February 8, 2011 / 11:13 pm

    Fantastic color palette! Someday if I am lucky enough to work from home my dream home office would look like this! Great job!

    The wall color is more true in the "After" pics.

    Hi there, I googled Waverly Bedazzled Silver Lining and your blog entry came up. I love that fabric but havent seen it in person. Can you tell me if the grey is metallic? Would you say the yellow is more like a lemon or a butter? Joann's is having a 40% off waverly fabrics online so I was hoping it would maktch my guest room with medium grey walls…
    Great blog!

  118. February 12, 2011 / 3:22 am

    i too was going to ask what color the walls were. Yellow is a tough color to pick out i am blending pink with mine. Your room is fantastic though, Love it you have great design style.

    I really, really love your rug. I went on Overstock, but it's out of stock. Did you happen to find any others similar to it? Also, is it hard to keep the white rug clean?

  120. February 21, 2011 / 10:12 pm

    Hello Megan, I know that you have heard this one thousand times but your office is beautiful. I wanted to find out where you purchased the white jars, one is located on top of the bookcase next to the unicorn. I've also seen another photo of these jars in your office but on a smaller scale. Please advise.

  121. February 23, 2011 / 4:43 pm

    Love your office! Very very nice!

  122. April 14, 2011 / 6:48 am

    I llooooove the drapes fabric. Where is it from? My living room is grey and I just decided to go with yellow accents, that fabric would be perfect!

  123. April 14, 2011 / 12:36 pm

    I got the same fabric from Joann's Fabric but you can also get it on Fabric.com.

  124. June 10, 2011 / 3:38 pm

    Wow!I envy your office! Very organized and so neat!

  125. June 24, 2011 / 9:48 pm

    Your office is beautiful. I was wondering how it's faring after a year, though, as I am considering a similar look for my study re-do. Does the desk surface scratch easily? Does the chair show dirt? Also, where do you store your printer and do you have any tips for dealing with cord clutter? Finally, how do you childproof all of your craft supplies? I'm wondering if I can make a similar look work with three kids in the house!

  126. July 25, 2011 / 3:06 pm

    Your office is very beautiful and composed. How did you come up with the designs of your home office? Our home office is kind of cluttered right now, because our kids sometimes get in and mess about. I wish I could find a way to make it more organized. Maybe I could do a makeover too!

  127. December 26, 2011 / 5:34 am

    I love your home office! It's beautiful and perfectly organized. I really like how you stored your fabric away. Do you know where I can find the baskets you used for it? Thanks!

  128. January 4, 2012 / 2:04 pm

    I've loved your office for a long time now. I had to sell my bulky office furniture before a transformation similar to yours could be made. It sold just before Christmas and I can't wait to get organized and make it a reality. Just wanted you to know I featured your office as one of my goals for 2012! Happy New Year!

    You did a really great job! I love the colors and balance. A couple ideas??? find a solid color fabric, maybe yellow and sew a strip about 6" on the inside of the curtains, I think a color block might be cool to add. I would suggest (since you asked) to paint the ceiling light shade of gray and the medallion a darker shade 1.5 strength of paint, or hit it with some lt metallic gray. Absolutely love the organization….makes me realize I have too much so I can't do what you did. I really like your chandelier too! Happy Decorating!

    First time trying Backyard Rooms. They’re building a home office addition with just ladders, drills, and a kit. Amazing to watch it go up.

    People always want to decor their office by this type of beautiful and attractive interior. Keep it up always.

    Simply gorgeous! Looks like office is way overdue for a makeover. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I love your office! Thank you for sharing your "process"! I love seeing the journey!
    I was wondering how you are liking the desk? I am currently trying to design my own home office and am having difficulties deciding on a desk style….
    Do you find that the surface scratches easily? What about the bar underneath… do you find yourself banging your legs on it at all? Is there any functionality for having a desktop computer… I don't see any access holes for cords etc….
    If you could give me some feedback that would be great!

    Just came across your site and I LOVE it!!!!
