Revamping the Office

You may remember photos from my home office when I first moved into my house a few years ago. The color pallet throughout my house downstairs is a lot of greige, linen and teal. My living room walls are dark and everything else is a linen color. The only room that didn’t get painted (with the exception of the hallway, which really needs it!) when I moved in was the office space. While I do like the room’s mix of modern and antiques, I don’t really love it anymore. I used to use it for my business more often than I do now. I would love to have a more polished space where I can meet with brides rather than meeting in my dining room simply because it is more elegant. After a recent trip to Ikea in Atlanta, I fell in love with their wall units and knew I wanted to create my space around that. I think this will be a slow work in progress, but I wanted to start here with a mood board. I still like my curtains from World Market that have beautiful colors and the perfect pop of teal that I have throughout the house. My husband wants a desk in his man cave rather that in the office, so we will most likely only have one desk in that room, which is an antique table from Mississippi that is large and in charge. I currently have an oversized comfy yellow chair in that room as well from my college days. It’s the best reading chair but I’m thinking she may have to get some new upholstery…our little Oliver kitty has been sleeping on that chair a lot lately so I will have some white cat fur to contend with!

I want the revamped space to be comfortable, sleek and organized with a neutral color pallet for the most part. I think this is a good start for some items that will fit well in the space I have envisioned. What do you think?
