Spring Home Tour: Office

first today i want to say a giant thank you to for reposting my dining room AND living room in the past week. what a thrill and i'm very appreciative! but i always have mr. r to bring me back down to earth since he thinks all of this is nonsense. 😆

ok! the next room in line for a closer look is our office. this room used to be pink. for real. and i loved it but then i hated it and it went white like most everything else. (p.s. scroll to the bottom to shop this post!) photography by kate renyi.

this room pretty much changed top to bottom. the rugs, furniture, lighting (which truthfully i'm still a little meh about) and art all changed. however that doesn't mean big bucks. i sold a lot of the old pieces and moved furniture around to repurpose some things we already had.

the shelving is from ikea and the hardware hack is from studio mcgee. no need to reinvent the wheel! i found a great 18" brass pull for under $20 and mr. r did some drilling. one day we hope to add built ins in place of these shelving units but for now they work just fine.

styling the shelves was a task! and i took many swipes at it but i like how it ended up.

the jute rug is from pier 1 and a few weeks before these photos were taken, stanley the dog peed on it. i couldn't believe it. so now we need to replace the new rug. UGH. the rug layered on top is vintage from chairish.

the desk was maybe my favorite find. it's technically a table because it has no drawers but it's just what i was looking for. i wanted a high gloss white desk large enough to have two chairs pull up on the other side. everything that was labeled as a traditional "desk"was too small so i started searching under table and voila! under $300!

the chair was moved from the living room (see this post for more living room details) when we bought the leather sofa. it's been a great addition and feels comfortable and warm. the pillows are two of my faves. since this room is fairly simple, it's the perfect spot for statement making art and the benson-cobb piece does just that!

the console started out behind the sofa in our living room and then moved to the dining room temporarily. but i had a master plan for it to land in the office and bring in some warmth. i'm really happy with how it looks in here!

the lamp is one i had been pining for and i love it just as much as i thought i would. the art i snagged from our master bedroom because the piece i ordered didn't arrive in time and actually it's still not here!

thanks for making it this far! here are links for lots of the pieces in the room.

About the pee. Get a product called Folex and saturate the rug, it is a spray. Should do the trick. It is a great product. BB&Beyond , Home Depot and more.

Thank you! It's from one kings lane but I can't remember the artist and I don't see it on their site anymore :(
