Office Inspiration

Hey everyone!!  Hope you are having a great week!  I started my new job yesterday and absolutely LOVE it.  I have been training at my boss's house all week, working in her home office, and it has totally inspired me to start figuring out what I want to do in mine.  I was laying in bed the other night and had a vision for my office come to me, and haven't been able to forget it.  I had originally planned to paint the whole room a pale gray, but the other night saw (in my head) white board and batten with a dark charcoal gray wall.

Have you been on Houzz yet?  I have been on this site before, but tonight I spent some time and found a ton of inspiration.  My office is a little tricky.  Remember the giant fish my husband has??  Well, to go along with those are two trophy deer mounts (again, please don't judge me, :o), LOL).  They are hanging in the office now, and I promised him he could keep them.  That makes my job a little bit harder, but worth the challenge I might add!

Here's some of my inspiration.  I want rustic meets contemporary.  Manly meets girly.  We'll see how I do!!

From Nuestra Vida Dulce:


From Wisteria

From The Lettered Cottage

From cwhitrow's Idea Book

Ahhh, now I just need to add board and batten to hubby's honey do list!


  1. Can the fish and heads go in the garage?
