After living in our new house for 8 months now, I am determined to finish more big projects this spring. I have been working on things room by room, and will share more here as rooms are complete. For example, our family room has been done for a while, aside from the curtain panels I finally decided on and ordered a while back. They should be here within a month.
In the meantime, I moved the decorating upstairs to my room. One of the spare bedrooms has turned into my office and home exercise area – my desk is up there, as well as a television, my treadmill, trampoline, weights, ab machine and … two closets full of clothes.
I have a bright fuchsia desk, so I thought it fitting that I paint one wall a bright color to match. I chose #6767 Aquarium from Sherwin Williams, in their Emerald zero VOC paint. I love it. Accessories in lime green and bright white complete the fun look I was going for.
Target recently invited me to shop from their new Threshold design series, and I was like a kid in a candy store. So many beautiful things. You know the lure of Target anyway, right? This new brand adds sleek sophistication to the fun, for sure.
I had so much fun painting and decorating my new office space – and I love my new bright work area! I linked to as much as I could find online; some things are available in stores only.
This wall shelf set in white finish is a sharp contrast to the blue wall. Two boxes full of treasures sit next to my monkey trio on the bottom shelf. Middle shelf holds a photo of my brother and I as kids, next to a mini Eiffel and two colorful souvenirs from our backpacking trip through Mexico. We picked them up in Sayulita. A dachshund is perched atop the smallest shelf…
This large white mirror hangs next to these shelves, just to the left of a framed (30th!) birthday drawing from a friend.
This fun bowl holds my mail – I love the bright green and the scalloped edge. I believe it is part of the Garden Party Collection.
A large tray in the same green works as my double inbox, corralling documents, pads of paper, lists and journals. I love this tray.
This funky accent table is a perfect addition to my office – it sits next to my desk and holds my afternoon sugar fix, a candle and my New York City snow globe.
My office (and the whole hallway upstairs!) now smells of warm vanilla. I bought two of the large Threshold 3-wick pillars, and two of the single wick pillars.
These white ceramic pillar holders are new from the Threshold line as well – more bright white – I love these sturdy curvy candlesticks.
A pretty cup and saucer from this aqua dinnerware set for my morning coffee and energy balls. More bright color. My new candy bowl is part of this set as well:
Afternoon sugar fix, anyone?
It’s the right mix of classic and modern. An effortless elegance. Beautiful, yet affordable. Designed for a lifetime of housewarmings. It’s everything you’ll love about your home.
