{The Office}

When I was little I can remember wanting to grow up so bad just so I could have my own house to decorate and my own office. I didn't really know what I'd do in my office yet but I totally wanted one! At 21 my husband and I bought our first home and I claimed the "den" area to be my photography office/ wouldn't believe how excited I was to have my own space to work, since it's all I seem to do. Plus it's the only space in the house that Kyle doesn't have control over how I decorate it...he's very opinionated when it comes to interior (and exterior) design, it's annoying. Here is a quick tour of one of my many happy places and my favorite room in our house...aside from the kitchen...where the food is.

This place has most of my favorite things it in, and it makes 1,133,456 hours of editing a day MUCH easier ;) 99% of my office is DIY and didn't cost much at all...just took some time and creativity. Each piece of furniture was given to me by my amazing family and I refurbished them to make them more my style. The DIY pallet bed is perfect when my back starts to hurt from sitting at my desk. I have an obvious addiction to stationary, I LOVE cards, journals, notebooks, and anything else made out of paper...don't ask me why. The picture frame wall and most artwork in the frames were also DIY and cost me about $ spray paint is my BFF.

Thank you for allowing me to share my space with you. I hope it will inspire some of you to make the most of what you’ve got…even if it’s a corner in your house and everything you own is someone else's old crap ;) Sometimes I think that makes a piece even more special...use your creativity, be proud of your work and remember that everyone starts somewhere!

  1. Love it! And I'm glad to know I'm not the only one with a husband who's got a lot of decorating opinions :)
