the best home offices…for me

16 Dec

if there was one luxury i’d want in a house it would be my own office. 

it is most important that ROF have his own office for all his boy stuff because let’s be honest here girls, the rest of the house is pretty much my playground for creative experimentation.

but ever since i can remember, i’ve loved my own little creative corner.  a place where i can hang up inspiring things, post them to a board and just be surrounded by things that get my mind going – quotes, color, design and just, me.  i read a great book by one of my favorite people luci swindoll called “i married adventure”.   

this is a book i would highly recommend.  luci is the most fascinating person to me.  she never got married but not because she didn’t like men or love but because she was such an incredible free spirit.  she sang in the dallas opera and traveled the world with them, she was a high powered executive at mobile oil a long time ago before it was even cool for women to be in high powered positions.  i love this book because she spills all her best ideas and finds.  for the purpose of today’s post, i bring her up because in her home, she transformed a walk-in closet to an office where she lined it with boards to pin articles and pictures that inspired her.  she collected things from her travels that she kept there.  one thing she did was send herself post cards from all her travels and she got them when she arrived home.  sometimes she would even have strangers write a note to her on a postcard (like a bus driver, or cafe barista) that she would then send home and post in this office.  i love that.  it’s like an adult playhouse!

i gathered from some of these great office spaces i found. click on the image to make them bigger.

and then these you can see details on my pinterest board located here.  let me know if you need an invite to pinterest.

and then, of course, who doesn’t love office supplies.

these are also on my pinterest board, link above

vintage goods above c/o etsy, also on my pinterest board.

what would your dream room be?  (other than a pantry you could step into and shove food in your mouth and none of it would count!)

    a huge laundry room with a fold out ironing board, sinks, rack for hanging the things you don’t dry. cabinets to store all the different detergents, softeners, woolite bottles. Now I’m inspired to pin laundry rooms.

    I have never had a big enough closet. I would love a walk in closet with drawers and shelves and hooks and plenty of hanging space. I would keep it so organized. It would be a dream come true!
