Makin’ the Office Pretty

The office’s bones are up, but now it needs to get some makeup.

Some ideas:

1. The colors. The walls are already teal, so we’ll be bringing in lots of white and yellow accesories with some gray to tie in with the rest of the house. 2. Cool art. On sale. But I am not sure if it would look good with our window treatments…? Otherwise, we would snatch it up RIGHT AWAY. 3. Pillow. For the loveseat that we plan to put in the room. 4. Another pillow. 5. We just want the wastebasket. 6. We already have this. 7. White boxes to organize our junk. 8. Cute yellow lamp. But this is a bit expensive so we will be on the lookout for a lamp with similar lines and just paint it yellow! 9. Flor gray rug tiles. 10. A magnetic frame for our magnetic boards. 11. Cool hexapods. Nick’s a math teacher, so this would be perfect.

Is it obvious that I love CB2 and their prices? Yeah, but we haven’t ordered anything from them yet. We almost ordered everything from CB2 from this moodboard an hour ago, but we decided to wait a bit and be sure of our decisions before making any purchases. After all, January just started. We have a house budget for every month, so we have to make good choices.

I’m finding it really hard to decide what to buy each month. Like, for this month, should we focus on buying bigger items such as a loveseat (probably from Craig’s List for now), shelves for the closet (we decided to go with Billy bookcases and hack them a bit to fit our closet), and boring stuff like filing cabinets and a side table, or should we buy decorative accessories and smile as the office smiles back at us?

I just can’t wait to actually bring a moodboard to life. I think this one will be the first one to be completed!
