Lately, I’ve noticed many of my friends have jobs that allow them to work from home. And if  they run their small business from home, they are always looking for ways to organize the space and to create an atmosphere that feels completely different from the rest of their home.  When my husband started his own business last November and moved into an official lease space, I took over!  Our third bedroom took a complete 180 and went from a dark  “dude room” with golf trophies and a leather recliner to a bright and glamorous studio for me to be inspired!  So come on in and have a look around.

I really can’t help this but I am a fan of draperies that blend with the paint color. I think it is soothing brings warmth to the room without taking the focus away from the overall look. The wall color is Benjamin Moore Stonington Gray, West Elm Velvet drapes and Ikea’s Effektiv storage system kept the room affordable.

I snagged this stunning white lacquer desk from Area 25 on Lovers Lane for $200! I LOVE the brass inlay, it reminds me of something my mother would have had in the 70’s.

The exiting built-in book shelves were dull, so I turned to my new favorite fabric store City Craft Dallas for a dash of color and pattern. I purchased display boards, cut them to fit the backs of the shelves and covered them with the fabric, see past post. Voila! An inexpensive update that makes a big change to room. I love having all of my design magazines out and easy to grab so I just stacked them on the lower shelf.  The basket is a great place to keep the fabrics I am  inspired by and using on current projects.

The three favorite men in my life…my Dad, my Nephew Braden and of course my  fabulous husband! Displaying personal items such as pictures and nick knacks from past travels and my favorite books make the room feel complete.

  2. Thanks Callie!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE City Craft! I have a few more project that I’m working on and will be by soon to snag more of you fabulous fabrics!

  3. What a beautiful office! Love that peacock!


    That lampshade is simply a DELIGHT! How did you turn fabric into a lampshade? I have been searching for the perfect lampshade, but would much rather craft it!

  5. It’s very simple. A little spray adhesive, a sharp pair of scissors and scrap paper for a template. I cut the fabric 1/4″ more at each edge so that it could be wrapped under. You can always use a fabric glue to tack down the corners too! Make sure you use a pattern with scrap paper, it will save you time and frustration.


    Yes indeed – quite simple! Thanks for the tips! I’ll be crafting a shade soon 🙂

  7. love the lampshade in there!

  8. Christine, thank you for visiting the Blog! Covering a lampshade is a great way to bring patten & color to a simple lamp base and to the room. Glad you liked it!

    Love the room! I’m thinking of purchasing the West Elm velvet drapes in iron for our bedroom. Are they lined, or heavy enough fabric to block light? It doesn’t say on the website and came across your blog (fab, btw) in searching for reviews, etc. Thank you!

  11. Hi Megan,
    Yes they are lined but I have never used them to block light. I think they would work great, you may need to buy more to make sure they cover the width of the window because they are not very wide. I love mine.
    Thanks for the comment.

  12. I love this room…especially your rug! Where did you get it?
