Its one of those blogs that thrills me day after day with inspiration, design and DIY. So I'm so happy to have her here to share her favorite nook today.
Since I work from home as a full-time blogger I spend the majority of my time in here.
Creating a room that is bright and serene has been really valuable to me on an emotional and creative level, and I can honestly say that I look forward to waking up each day and going into "the office." How great is that?!
When we moved in last Spring, this was the first room that I wanted to unpack and make homey. Since we rent (and we can't paint), I decided on a whim to add color to the room by applying a strip of patterned wrapping paper to the wall behind my desk (I just stuck it up there with poster putty). The paper ended up really brightening the space and helped to make the ceiling feel taller than it is. Next I hung up artwork and strung an inspiration wire behind my desk to hold an ever changing selection of images and finds — I love my inspiration wire!
I loved the green patterned paper I hung last Spring, but I'm ready for a change and am on the hunt for a new paper to hang this season. I'm thinking that it will have to include my current favorite color: coral. The best part about using wrapping paper as a decor element, is that it's ridiculously affordable, and takes only minutes to change. Perfect for someone (like me) whose tastes are constantly changing!
