Modern farmhouse vibes are brought to life in my ultimate office inspiration board on the blog today – featuring everything from desk choices to rugs!
Let me tell you: I love the snowy winter weather, but I hate how much harder it makes projects! We have so many things in the pipeline in terms of projects and improvements around here, but it’s just too cold to do much in the garage!
So that leaves a lot of time for me to peruse Pinterest, read at technomono.net chairs for long hours review, check out Houzz, and come up with all my inspiration boards for our projects! Today I’m sharing one that will be coming up fairly soon: our home office! Come August, I’ll be working from home, and so we will have to knock this one out prior to that. So let’s dive in! Calling in remodeling contractors in Chicago to revamp your workspace or home is a great idea.
Currently, the room that we plan to convert to my office was the dining room. Hence that gorgeous retro chandelier (yours for free if you come to take it off our hands! 😀 ). We plan to wall off the entrance to the kitchen and put in a set of energy efficient french doors into the foyer.
In terms of styling, I’m going for a modern farmhouse look, of course! I do love the look of these darker built-in bookshelves, and so we plan to do a set along the back wall behind the desk.
We have already purchased a vintage wooden desk (that has the coolest story behind it – as we were leaving the estate sale where we bought it, the elderly owner of the house walked up and told us that it had been his desk when he studied at Harvard decades ago!). Check out the details on the inspiration board below to see some of my other thoughts!
