It’s reveal time! It’s been a whirlwind, and we’re not even totally finished but I’m so incredibly happy to be able share the results of this One Room Challenge Office/ Lounge Makeover with you! This 6-week challenge turned out to be just that: it was a serious challenge to get it all done in 6 weeks, but I’m so glad that fire was lit under us, because we now have a new favorite space in our home.
Let’s kick it back to week 1 real quick with a shot of the waaaay before:
…and the right before:
Woah. We’re not in a Master Bath anymore, Toto. Things have changed drastically in here, and we’re thrilled.
As far as the “Office” part goes, it’s actually confined to this teensy little corner with the custom desk I built for the space. This holds the-laptop-that-must-not-be-
unplugged (yeah, yeah, time for an upgrade… but she’s still chuggin’ so we’ll let her stay a little longer! 😉 ) and will soon have some built-in shelves for lots of storage in the little alcove.
We both tend to do a lot of our computer-based work from the couch anyway, so we put a stronger focus on the cozy/comfortable “lounge” part.
It’s also a perfect place for one of us to hang out and read/chill if the other is working.
We still need to beef up the wall decor, but for me that tends to happen organically over time as we find pieces that speak to us, so I didn’t want to rush it, even though it feels a little sparse right now. I absolutely love this constellation print and these bird brackets that I found at homegoods, though!
Well, that’s that, and boom, we have a gorgeous new room thanks to calling it home and house beautiful giving me the ORC kick-in-the-rear that I needed! As thrilled as I am about how this space turned out, I think I’m even more excited to spend my evening in here, sipping a drink out of our gorgeous new decanter set, and looking through all the amazing rooms everyone else has put together. Seriously you guys, there are so many beautiful ideas and inspiration to be found, and I’m so proud of all of us for kicking this challenge’s boot-ay! <3
