Y'all know that I've been working on a few updates to my home office and I'm thrilled with the difference painting the walls made. I went with Sherwin Williams Divine White- the same color as our trim and cabinets throughout the house. It's a fresh, blank canvas.
Feeling like I wanted a more sophisticated look for the room, I am going with mostly black and white, a few pops of color in flowers and in the bookcase, with animal print elements for added flair. I originally planned to buy a leopard print rug, but ended up moving our cowhide rug up there instead. I love the look, and think it's more subtle than the leopard rug would have been. But now, I'm thinking the black drapes are too much, so I've got a grey velvet pair on the way to see if I like them better. Maybe this weekend we can get around to hanging the new chandelier I got from Home Depot.
I knew I wanted a black lamp and lampshade and completely stumbled upon one at Target (lamp base + drum shade). And it happened to be part of the Nate Berkus line. I literally had just a few minutes in the store because I was on my way to a nail appointment. I didn't even grab a shopping cart because I was only getting "one thing". Yeah, right:) I ended up with the NB lamp, a pillow (can't find the link), and picture frame. Still pretty good if you ask me. I saw the chevron vase and passed on it, but really like it. It would look great on top of my bookshelf.
I'm also L O V I N G my desk facing against the window! And having some cute accessories on the desktop is fun too.
