Office Decor.....

So, the new office has me a bit stumped. I just don't know where to go from here. The space needs more personality, but I'm afraid terrified of going overboard. You know, I'm the girl who rarely wears pattern, for fear of looking too "busy".

I hope my chairs will be done this week, and I'll be able to swap them for the sofa (which I haven't even purchased fabric for..... better get on that).... I feel like once the seating is done then I don't know what's next. I have a definate vision for the space, but no real direction.

In comes Bryn. I just found Bryn via my friend Aeriel (actually, I'd found her a while back when my friend Dana photographed a home for her.... but I'd forgot about that). I reached out to her for some assistance. We met last week, and she had some great suggestions for the space & how to personalize it, and accessorize. We talked lighting, color, neutrals, ect. I'm SO excited to see this all finally come together in one cohesive style. My style.

Today I've been brainstorming some ways to incorporate "the brand" into my box of an office. First, I'd like to point out that I wanted to keep the fixed elements neutral.... walls, chairs, ect. which I realized is how the blog is.... backgrounds & text are gray & white (as my walls & furniture!) and the color comes in the art & accessories! Anyway.... so things I think my blog & office should reflect ..... Kate Spade, Lilly Pulitzer, J Crew, and all things Southern :-)

Today, Rachel wrote a blog about being southern and it included this photo....

got me thinking.... what else besides bow ties could I frame?? I could incorporate southern things in frames among the photographs I want to showcase!

So, I made a little list of things that could be awesome.....

1. Pinwheels (I snagged a few from Allie & Jamie's Oak Island wedding to display!)
2. A southern saying
3. Seersucker fabric
4. Mason jars

I think I'm going to like the direction this is going! I already purchased a few bowties on ebay to frame :-)


  1. What a cute idea. I saw on Pinterest high end designer bags framed. I am looking on ebay now to purchase some for my bathroom & closet :)

  2. See - I told you I read your personal blog. :) I puffy heart Bryn - she's awesome. Glad to hear you guys are working together.
