one room challenge - week 6 - home office reveal



Phew, six weeks went by fast! I have to give it to Linda at My Crafty Home Life for sparking this blogger challenge to finish a room. I'm pleased with how my office/library turned out, and it has been so inspiring to watch the transformation of my other challengers' rooms. You can go back and watch the progress from the beginning here

So my design board kept me on track with the white-with-pops-of-colour-industrial-comfy plan for my office. 


The "before" was a rented beige empty room. I painted the walls white, added a white desk, shelving and storage credenza. And I mixed old and new, like vintage wire baskets for magazine storage with a new knock-off Eames armchair.







I abided by sustainable design through creating artwork with leftover materials, and papering a damaged chair I already owned to make it new again. 



I added personality through industrial hanging lights, a vintage poster of my favourite travel spot, and a colourful mood board. 




And I made this a budget project by creating a great daybed and making my own corner headboard


To see my room progression from the beginning, hop here. Hope you find some inspiration from this and the other rooms in this series. Be sure to go check them out! 


Thanks Linda!

  2. I love your space. You did such a colorful job with white. That chair is still my favorite. I remain jealous as to how organized you are. I am convinced that although I enjoy some color...white walls are calling my name!

    Thanks! Yes, that knock-off Eames chair is very comfy. I wanted to get the armchair version for working at the desk. I got it from lexingtonmodern.com. They shipped to Canada no problem!

  22. I’m in love with the idea of using wallpaper on a chair too! The idea is quite original and the finished look is divine. You have to have some talent to be able to achieve a look like this, it doesn’t come naturally to all of us unfortunately but at least we have the internet facility and all these wonderful blogs to help us be inspired.
