If you saw my tiny home office in San Francisco, you can understand why this is fun for me to have some elbow room in Florida! Let me tell you about the things that make me so happy about my neutral home office.
Basically, I repurposed things with the exception of a new daybed, floor lamp and small drinks table. The rest we already had!
As it turns out, Cindy and Annie also have their new home offices to share with the links at the end of the post.
Daybed in Performance Fabric Creates A Guest Room
This daybed pulls out into a queen for when we have a full house. It’s in performance oatmeal fabric. We will buy a memory foam topper for it to make it softer for guests. But for now, its nice to sit here with my laptop and take a break from the desk.
The neutral pillows were already in my stash. I love just using the black, tan and gray ones here. A neutral background is good when working with color for clients.
This is “Chief’s daybed.” Comes in all sizes.
Serene Gallery Wall
This is art that we combined from different rooms and I love the clean, calm feel. The white frames are from Art.com with our travel photos. The black abstract art was from Minted.com and the other was a gift from a sweet client.
Paint: The walls are painted Benjamin Moore Simply White and the trim is China White.
Convenient Drinks Table
The sturdy little marble table from Crate and Barrel is perfect to hold my water glass while working or relaxing on the day bed. This was a good purchase.
Notice below that we made the shelves more uniform… and used my already owned neutral accessories.
There are three light sources: recessed lighting over the desk, a Serena and Lily task lamp and a floor tripod lamp from Target on sale for $80. I paid full price. I think it looks good…what do you think?
Large Table For My Desk
This farm table has lived with us in Paris, France (where we bought it at the Porte de Vanves flea market), Fort Lauderdale, Newport Beach and San Diego (while on loan to my sister). And now its back with us in Atlantic Beach, FL!
I’m planning to get natural woven wood shades from Smith and Noble for the windows and store the plantation shutters. Can you see some samples on my pin board?
Ah, what a luxury to have a place to sit on the floor to wrap presents, do yoga (Ok…I AM planning on it) or play with Chief. The Restoration Hardware rug was in our SF foyer.
And those are the things I love about my neutral home office. What’s your favorite about this space??Chief would appreciate your vote.
Let check out these home offices…can’t wait to see what they have done!
