Ok, so now that I have my office painted and the new floors installed, I guess I better get moving on the furniture!
Right now I am focusing on the desk.
Originally, I thought I would go with a white desk in front of a white bookcase or built ins.
Here was the inspiration board I made with that idea in mind…
See my Office Inspiration from Ballard post for more details.
Then I started thinking that I wanted a stained desk to break things up a bit.
There will be an area rug in there so the stained desk would not sit directly on the wood floor.
I love this one from Ethan Allen. It is traditional, not bulky looking and has a bit of a British Colonial look to it – which I love since I love touches of the Caribbean in my home.
It is only 52 Wide X 22 Deep X 30 High though, so it might be a bit small for the space. I think I need something a little larger since my plan is to float the desk in the center of the room in front of the bookcases. I do really love the look of this desk though!
Here is another option:
via Universal Furniture
The Paula Deen Working Desk from Universal could work in the space at 58 Wide X 28 Deep X 31 High. It’s a little bigger than the Ethan Allen one and has a similar look.
Here was my original layout for the room.
The Ballard 3 Drawer Desk in my original plan measures 64 1/4 Wide X 28 1/4 Deep X 30 1/4 High which is significantly larger than the Ethan Allen one. The Ballard Desk does come in a Tuscan Brown color so that is definitely an option for the space.
The Printer’s Writing Desk from Pottery Barn has some potential.
It’s definitely large enough at 64 Wide X 32 Deep but I am not sure the stain is dark enough. I will have to see it in person.
And if I am going with Pottery Barn,
I could take a whole different direction with a two tone desk:
I love the Whitney Shuttered desk but I have to check to see what the back of the desk looks like it I want to float it in the room…then again I could change the layout again…ugh! I know I’m crazy!
So that is where I am right now with my office. I know I should be much farther along but I have been doing tons of “behind the scenes” stuff like organizing the closet, donating old things and generally getting everything in order so I can actually use this room as my office.
So, what do you think?
Any thoughts on my desk options?
