I work from home most days so I need a space that motivates me, encourages me and makes me feel professional and grown-up. About 4 months ago I painted the guest room/home office. Problem is, I’m tired of the colors and tonality of this room. I even bought a bookcase to create a line of demarcation between the sleeping quarters and the working quarters. I chose mushroom and raspberry colors for the walls. I have orange accents punctuated around the room. Now I think I’ve out grown my love for those colors. Truth is, I get bored of design so easily. Must have been my upbringing and moving a gazillion times as a child.
I’m dreaming of re-doing this space and taking the time to actually create an inspiration board. Below are some home offices from the HGTV site I’ve admired over the past few months.
- I’ve got a glass-top desk.
- I’ve got a floating bookcase.
- I’ve got a funky desk lamp.
- I’ve got floating shelves.
- So why don’t I love the space I earn my career in?
But, I’m tired of the guest bed throw, pillows and duvet.
I want a head board for the expensive mattresses I splurged on (and don't even sleep on).
I want to create two separate spaces in one room.
I need an area rug or two.
I want about $5000 to cover the costs.
I have expensive tastes.
As in, I need to stop watching programs where expensive designers come in and transform rooms for $30,000 a pop. I've got about $500 to drop. Ain't no chance.
I'm a DIY'er sometimes.
Perhaps I'll be more of one this year.
Let's make that a resolution, shall we?
