A few months ago, I participated in the One Room Challenge at Linda’s blog Calling It Home. For the challenge, I decorated my home office.
At the end of the six weeks, I had completed most of the room except a few details here and there. I was also waiting for my plantation shutters to arrive.
Well, the shutters have arrived and I can now show you what my office looks like these days!
I love walking into this room every day!
Here is a shot of what the room looked like before the shutters arrived (and before spider mites arrived and destroyed my palms.)
I feel like the shutters have made the room feel finished.
I also added some baskets for extra storage.
These have been a huge help with all our school papers!
And I bought a new orchid. Don’t worry, the old one is still alive. I just moved it because I like the color of this one better. It’s more…well…orchid! Apparently the hot color of the year!
I still might do something with the empty corners where the palms were.
Oh – and here is something that I realized I like….The stripes in the rug, the boards of the hardwood floor and the louvers on the shutters all run in the same direction. That is very pleasing to my eyes.
And I love my desk more and more every day!
Sure, I still have to hang some artwork and I am also thinking about curtain panels for the windows but basically this room is done! Hooray!
Thanks again to Linda at Calling It Home for hosting a party for all the One Room Challenge Updates. I can’t wait to see what everyone else has done!
Have you updated any “previously finished” rooms?
