Friday Favorites-Office Inspiration

This week’s Friday Favorites will be a  little different than what I usually do. It is going to require some interaction on your part because I could really use some design help! I am very indecisive when it comes to decorating my house. I bought my house three years ago and have done little to actually decorate it because I can’t decide on what style I want. This summer I made it my goal to accomplish a few projects around my house instead of taking a big summer vacation. So far I have added plantation shutters, retiled my fireplace (see here), and ordered a new chair and ottoman for my living room. The next thing I want to do is redecorate my office because it is the room I spend most of my time in. When I get home from my school counseling job, I normally have to edit photos for my photography business. I definitely need a space that is both inspiring and comfortable. The problem is that I genuinely like so many different styles, so how do I pick just one?

Since I had several hours to do nothing during jury duty this week, I created three mock-ups with different styles that I like. Let me know which style you like the most. I’d also love to see any office spaces that inspire you. Leave me a link to an office you love in the comments.

Happy friday, y’all!

  • Kristin - I absolutely love Option 1! I’m about to move and create a new home office and I love that white desk!ReplyCancel

    • carissacady@gmail.com - Thanks for your feedback, Kristin! I love option 1 too. I normally like things that are bright and white, so I was a little torn between option 1 and 2.

      If you get the desk from World Market, make sure you use one of their coupons they so often have. Every little discount helps!ReplyCancel
