Weekend Update: (A Totally Unprofessional) Home Office Reveal

Hi guys! How was everyone's weekend? Ours was a mix of work and play: I had an installation on Saturday morning (more on that coming soon), so we took it easy Saturday night. P had her first ballet recital on Sunday and it was SO sweet. 

Over the weekend, I was thinking about how far I've come with all the work we've been doing on our home, but I've been reluctant to share it here because it's not "perfect." But I also don't really believe in "perfect," particularly when it comes to someone's living space. What I like is "lived in," and so without further ado, here is my very "lived in" office, complete with a stack of unfiled papers. A few months back, this was a spider colony...

I love being able to look out into my backyard all day.

My favorite part of the whole space is this vintage oil painting I picked up in Palm Springs.

My thrift shop horse hooks earning their keep.

Remember these chairs? They finally got a facelift with this Caitlin Wilson fabric.

The giant cork board is actually a murphy bed for out of town guests (we're not desperate for visitors or anything...)

It's definitely more feminine in here than any other room in the house, but I really wanted it to feel different. I can't wait to come out here every morning and feel so lucky to have a space of my own. I know these pictures are kinda fuzzy cell pics and you can see all my messiness, but I really wanted to push myself on this particular issue. Thanks for letting me share!

Hey Jenn, I love the space!!! Where did you get the wingback chairs recovered? Do you have any recommendations on what companies to contact as I need to two wing backs covered too!
Thanks, Morag

Thanks, Morag! I got them done at a local shop. In terms of a chain, you could try Calico Corners (sometimes called Calico Home). Unfortunately it's a bit of a trial and error process with upholsterers... xo
