This Office Makeover is DONE! WOOHOOOOOO! We made it to reveal week! You guys… its been a LONG time coming.
If you have been following along for a while, thanks!! If you are new around here – WELCOME! I also wanted to thank the folks over at the One Room Challenge for organizing this awesome virtual event and building such a fun community! I’ve appreciated all the support and encouragement through this Office Makeover. Also, a huge thank you to Better Homes and Garden for being such a wonderful media sponsor. Make sure you stop by the ORC Blog to check out all the incredible room transformations!
My vision for this office makeover started when I began pinning vertical shiplap walls to my Pinterest board. I had my heart set on beautiful shiplap walls but then as I stared at the empty room, I realized that a shiplap wall wouldn’t necessarily work on the wall that I had in mind.
So, I decided to take a leap of faith and paint it a BOLD colour instead. I went into Benjamin Moore and saw “Beau Green” in a catalogue. I saw this EXACT picture, and I was sold. I knew THIS was it! I wanted these exact wood tones, the florals, the touches of black and white. Inspiration had struck. Design is a strange process, right? You never know when and where inspiration can strike.
I shared how this room has a strange lay out in the post for Week One. You can check out the entire 5 week Office Makeover and transformation HERE. It has two distinct sections:
1. The accent wall “corner” in Beau Green, where the desk and shelves are located,
2. The reading nook.
I am so excited to share it all with you! Here my Office Makeover in all its glory with a before and after!
Let’s start at the Beau Green wall, which I call the “accent corner,” where I placed the desk and shelves!
One of my favourite aspects of designing a new space is putting the final touches.
Small thoughtful and meaningful vignettes are really the key to tying together the whole vision of any room. Here, my accent colours are natural woods, neutrals, blush, and navy. I tried to tie that into all of the vignettes to create a more cohesive look.
Now, let’s move to the other side of the room, or the opposite diagonal, where there are only white walls!
Here, I used a bookshelf that was already in the room, along with a new gorgeous velvet chair and some faux greenery to create a cozy reading nook! But really, I needed an excuse to show off my graduate degrees!
There you have it, my Office Makeover! My first and only one room challenge room transformation was pretty successful! Now I am going to head over to the ORC Blog to check out the other incredible rooms that hundreds of guest and design bloggers have transformed! If you’re looking for inspiration, you’ll find lot’s over there!
