Home Office Progress – My Plans and Furniture Shopping

Between all of our summer activities and my indecisiveness, I haven’t finished my home office yet.

Even though I haven’t gotten very far, I do have a plan:

But I wanted to make sure the layout would work for me.

As you can see, I put a fake desk in to mimic the size of the one that I think I am buying – (which is not the one in my collage above anymore).  Last week on my shopping trip, I had the chance to see the Dash and Albert rugs in person and came home and remeasured. I am glad I did because a 5 X 8 would have been too small.  The 6 X 9 will work perfectly!  (As you can see by the tape measures on the floor.)  The fake desk you see is 54″ X 23″ and although it looks a little small in this picture, I think that size will work since I am putting white shelves behind the desk (see the table runner on the floor behind the chair).  I think there will be a white slip covered chair in the right corner and that is as far as I will commit until I can see the actual furniture in the room.

So far I have ordered bookcases:

(There are 3 but only the center is shown below)


And the Dash and Albert rug!


Slowly, but surely the room is coming along.

Have you made any progress on your projects?

  1. Can't wait to see this done! So jealous of your blank space to work with…Your boys would love the pirate adventure. Do the one in Brick, the one in Manasquan is a copycat. At the very least, you will get to see the beautiful (bigger than I expected) waterfront homes on the Metedeconk.Enjoy your weekend ~ Stay cool!

  2. I would give anything to be able to have an office big enough to warrant a desk in the MIDDLE of the room – so sophisticated looking!My office is a quarter of that size with 2 desks!!!!!!!Can't wait to see it finishedXOXO

  3. Good for you….measuring so you get it right. Love the D&A rug…..they are priced so reasonable too.
