Feminine Home Office Reveal

Feminine Home Office Makeover

I’m SO excited to finally share my home office makeover with you guys! It has drastically changed from my original design (find it here) since the desk I had originally ordered was never shipped but it’s still the feminine home office I always wanted.

I had searched long and hard for that desk since I wanted a desk that was wider and deeper than a regular desk. The only larger ones I could find were your typical business man desk made out of dark wood. Totally not my style.

Pink Desk

My sister recently got a dining room table made by Justin over at Midwest Woodcraft so I reached out to see if he would make me my dream desk. A pink one. I know most wood guys aren’t big fans of painting wood but he jumped on the opportunity and quickly agreed!

Together we created my perfect desk. I showed him one from Anthropologie which I loved (but it was too small). We used some of the elements from that for my desk. In lieu of 5 drawers (2 on either side and one in the middle) we replaced 2 of them with a cabinet that I use for my camera and lenses. I picked out the drawers pulls (again from Anthro) and the paint color (Mellow Coral from Sherwin Williams) so it was exactly how I wanted it.

My desk is the perfect addition for my feminine home office! I highly recommend Justin and Midwest Woodcraft – especially if you’re local!

Gallery Wall

My gallery wall was a labor of love. It went through about 6 different variations before I got it how I like it but now I’m obsessed!

Here’s a note when it comes to gallery walls – move it around, change things up and try different things even after it’s on your wall! I switched out a ton of the photos for prints, moved an entire row of frames and art and moved things around until I got it right. You can always patch up the holes. 😉

      My goal for my gallery wall was to use as many local creative’s work in there as possible! Here are all the places I bought my art from:

Weaves – JunahWoods
 
Wood Art – Anna Bailey
 
Fashion sketch – Al Johnson
 
Family illustration – A Spoonful of Faith
 
Solo illustration – cestriley via Ma Jolie Market
 
Vintage art sourced from Clarabel Vintage
 
Print/Art from the following:

Weaves

I’ve had Cassie from Junah Woods make a few weaves for the kids rooms (you can see Penelope’s here) and had her make one for the office too! I actually ended up stealing Penelope’s from her room since I liked how it looked with my gallery wall and use the one Cassie made specifically for the office over my shelf.

Plants

Bloomscape sent me 3 plants for the home office (and you all know my love for plants!). I got a fiddle leaf fig, a hedgehog aloe and a bird’s nest fern. They’re sent pre-potted so all you need to do is pull them out of the box and put them on your shelf (or floor or whatever).
 
A little card with care instructions is included and I thought they were so pretty I included them in my gallery wall! 🙂 (P.S. Be sure you’re following along on Instagram because I’m doing a giveaway with them very soon!)
 
I added a few plants in the gallery wall using these hanging pots. I also found these adorable pots from Anthropologie that I’m in love with!

Final details

Since I knew the desk was going to pink I decided to pain the whole room white (White Dove from Sherwin Williams to be exact) to give it a clean slate. I already had a tiny pink table that I use for my printer and a white shelf for plants, plants and more plants as well as a few books and this amazing reed diffuser from Thymes that makes my office smell amazing. Candles are a must in my office!
 
The furry white chair gives the room an additional texture which is so important!
 
I got a new light fixture from West Elm, used a rug from I’ve owned for a year (to be honest, I thought it was a blanket when I bought it haha!), and adorable pots from Anthropologie. Some Wit + Delight stationary and fun books and flowers finished it off!

Overall I am SO happy with how it turned out and I love spending time in there – both to work and to play.
 
I’d love to hear your thoughts!
 
Thanks so much for reading and sharing!
