Hi again! We had our first real taste of fall this past weekend with cooler temps and crisp air. Jordon and I went to a wedding on Saturday and it was such a perfect day. The venue was in a glass chapel that overlooked the fields (literally corn fields ha) and the reception was in an old barn that was renovated. It was so pretty!
The past couple weeks I've been transitioning our decor and next week I'm sharing the full tour of our fall decorations. I have a few fall DIY projects that I'll post in the next few weeks as well so stay tuned!
To take a little break before all the upcoming fall posts, I wanted to share our office makeover. Since Jordon first bought the house a year and a half ago the office has been the "storage" room. I hadn't touched it yet because I was focused on finishing the living room, bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom first. Now that those rooms are basically complete, I was finally able to move on to the office.
First and foremost the office needed storage for my craft supplies, bills, and paperwork. I hunted for several weeks looking for the perfect shelves that fit the modern yet rustic feel I was going for. Most of the bookcases I found were great but the prices were so high, and when buying two I was not about to drop $400 or more.
I ended up finding these cute industrial shelves on sale at Target. They're really sturdy and were easy to assemble too. The parsons desk I got a couple years ago from Overstock and the Eames knockoff chair is from Amazon. The blue tufted chair was a thrift find. Isn't it gorgeous?! I wasn't planning on getting a new chair for the office but when I saw it sitting in Goodwill in my traditional blue color AND in great condition, I couldn't pass it up. I'm obsessed! It really makes the whole room come together don't you think?
For decor, I stocked up on storage baskets at Gordmans. Most of the other decor I already had except for the photo ledge shelf. Yes, those frames still have random families in them. I'm horrible about printing photos.
Aren't these plants pretty? Plants are often forgotten about but I love adding them as decor for some texture and color. The only problem is I know VERY little about plants and what kind are low maintenance/least likely to kill. These guys are exotic angel plants from Costa Farms (available at Lowes, Walmart, and Home Depot) and are characterized as "medium" for sunlight. I water them about once a week and they're doing great! I threw the tag away so I don't remember the name of this green one, but the pretty purple one on the bookcase is a rex begonia.
Be sure to stop by next week for the fall home tour series!
