I'm back for another post dreaming about our new house. It's been a couple weeks but I'm still pinning and stalking ideas for how we want to set up and eventually decorate. We've decided we want to have an office/guest room combination. Since I do work from home 10 hours a week right now, I'd like to have a dedicated space to get things done. Right now I kinda' work on the fly from anywhere with my laptop- which is nice to be able to do, but I am so much more productive if I have a set space.
We'd like to have a bed and a small nightstand in there for any guests we might have. It's a decent sized room, so I know it's totally doable- but it's just a matter of how to set it up. Pinterest has some good ideas, but I've had to do a lot of digging for actual practical ideas versus the chandeliers and over-the-top decor ;) That's just not what I'm going for.
I like this set-up (what I can see of it anyway!) I really want to do a biggg bulletin board like this one above our desk. I'm not totally sure what they did but I'll be doing a little more googling. Anyone have a board like this in their house? We have this desk from IKEA and plan on keeping it- it's all we need! Pictures, to-do's, a calendar, etc- I want it all up above me and not cluttering up the desk space.
This one is nice too; it looks a little more like a daybed set up. But truthfully, I'm just obsessed with those curtains and the hooks in this one. How cool are they?!
I also like the idea of floating shelves but I don't know for sure if I want them. Sometimes they make a room feel more cluttered/closed-in but if they're done right I think they look really cool.
As far as colors, I am leaning towards something like this. I feel like it's the right amount of color and fun, without being too wild that you can't focus ;) This is definitely one of the rooms I'm most excited about decorating and setting up once we move in. Jared said I can do whatever I want with it so the possibilities are endless right now!
And the last thing on my must-have list for this room is as GOOD chair. I think these are so hard to pick out. I need comfy, support and preferably not one that's going to break the bank. I sat in this one at JCPenney and then saw the price tag... HAHA. This one from IKEA is really cute but I don't think it would be comfortable long term. Send me your suggestions on this one, please!!
