Studio Revamp (Part Two)
Rustic, clean, modern aesthetics... How do I balance them all?
My decorating style is a crazy mix of farmhouse, light and airy, and a bit of maximalism (I know those don't really go together.) So how do I put them together to create an office space that inspires me?
Sometimes I get caught up working. That is an understatement, really. Sometimes it seems like I sit down and all of the sudden it is dark, my husband is home, and I haven't eaten in hours! Even if I am not paying attention, I know the atmosphere of my workspace affects my mood and productiveness. This is one of the main reasons I wanted to do an office makeover. If you saw my previous post you know that I finished my new desk made out of reclaimed wood and storage cubes, so the space was looking good!
I had clean, bright, and a bit of a rustic vibe, but I needed something else. Something to make the space pop. Metallics and glitter are pretty much as eye-catching a theme as you can get!
Gold... yeah, at first the idea didn't appeal to me. But I took a trip to a craft store and when I saw the home decor, it just clicked! I found a few things that settled me into more of a niche: gold, geometric, and plants. Take a look at some of what I found:
Where did I find this cool stuff on a budget? It actually isn't that hard to find the perfect accents for your office at a great price!
Hobby Lobby, Home Goods, and TJmaxx are wonderful places, guys. I spent around $100, and I got most of my little decor accents! Make sure you check sales flyers before heading to Hobby Lobby. I got lucky and managed to get there two days before the week and the sales ended. When I went, the wooden, glass, metal and other home decor categories were all 50% off. The next week it was pretty much ceramics only! The top picture shows most of what I bought but haven't gotten up on the wall yet. Stay tuned!
