My New Office {♥ Gray & Yellow}

My husband is awesome. He lets ME do the decorating and I love him for it! It took me almost a year to put this office together. It sat completely empty while I tried to figure out what to do with it. This was definitely, the hardest room to decorate. This office is at the entrance of my house, so it needed to be cute. It also had to be VERY functional, because I come with a lot of crap {cameo, printer, files, computer, laminator, binding machine, paper, crap...} and I wanted all my crap to be nicely hidden.

I chose to go with the popular yellow and gray color scheme and I love every bit of it. I actually spray painted a lot of my old junk yellow and you'd never know {except for the fact that I just told you..}! I also got a lot of accessories from West Elm, Target, The Land of Nod, and local boutiques.


These square windows are my favorite part of this room. I am always looking for glass bottles to add to my collection. The colored bottles look so pretty when the sun comes through!


I love how nicely the wood tons and white cabinets turned out! For you local peeps, Foxwood designed and installed this desk for us and we couldn't be happier with how it turned out! The gray armchair is from Ikea. I saw one just like it at West Elm and Ikea's was way cheaper! I love getting the same look for less! :)



But I have to be real with you all. Even though I have an adorable, functional office, I usually do most of my work right here in my loft. It is nice and cozy and my DVR is only a few feet away!


What does your office space look like? If you've already blogged about it, then leave a link!

  5. Your office space looks amazing!! Now you can sit back and enjoy! I just finished painting the last two bedrooms in our house gray! Now we've got different shades of gray in all over our house. I really like white against the gray. My office space right now is usually on my gray couch with my laptop and a dog on each side of me.

  19. Love it! Looks straight out of a magazine! If I didn't have serious problems with messing up a project every time I use spray paint I would definitely paint more items to match my color scheme!

  26. Your updated office looks great! I like to hide all my crap too! Seriously though, it has a nice, calm color scheme. I also love your loft!! It makes me want to redo mine!!

    I updated my office/craft room last summer. It is definitely a girly space. No boys allowed! You can see some photos here (pardon the poor quality of the photos): http://primarily-speaking.blogspot.com/2012/08/another-reveal.html

  29. Your office is awesome! I'm so jealous.. I seem to be thinking about office space a lot lately. While we are in a "temporary" housing situation (ie.. an apartment while hubs finishes his PhD) I am dreaming about my office!
    Enjoy your week!

  30. Gorgeous!! I'm obsessed with grey and yellow right now. The square windows are too cute! FYI-- IKEA has a ton of cute glass vases if you're looking for more! I do all of my work from the couch... no cute office for me until I get a new house! :)

  31. LOVE this! The gray and yellow looks amazing! The desk is almost exactly what I've been thinking about! I wanted to have 2 little homework areas so 2/3 kids can work and then a writing desk for me on the opposite wall. What kind of wood is the top? I would like wood but was worried about it getting all marked up with the kids using it daily.
