Office Touches

Sunday, January 27, 2013

Yay! Found my hardware and Nate Wellauer helped me get my curtains hung for the office!!!

Funny Story- Around the same time that we bought the flooring to do our 'make ready' to sell our house back in Fall of 2011-- We also bought 2 sets of curtain rods for me to make drapes for the upstairs family room and the downstairs family room. Needless to say- life got very busy that October and continued it's relentless march and I never got around to making the drapes.

Fast Forward to this Fall when we redid the office: I had removed the honey oak blinds from the windows because they no longer went with the room redesign, but I did not have a specific plan for the window because our 'Pride of Barbados' was Huge and provided a lovely greenscape in the windows.

Dusty Riewe redid our landscaping around Christmas and suddenly our windows let a lot more light and transparency in (Bob & I could no longer lounge in front of the window and be oblivious to whomever might walk by on the sidewalk).

So- the week after Christmas I found these lovely sheers on and ordered them but until now I have been in a Funk and not in a creative/decorative mood at all.

I got these awesome cubes which match my office "contemporary" scheme and color palette quite well. I have newborn blankets, headbands, wraps, and accessories for sessions stored neatly in them.
Here's a perspective of looking through the double doors of the office from the foyer.

Now that they are up I wish I would have done it much sooner- but C'est La! I LOVE how the pattern complements the other organic elements in the room as well as all the swirls!

Very much Eye Candy for me to walk by the entrance of the office and admire how the cohesive patterns play!

I just LOVE it when a seemingly unrelated plan comes together.

It reminds me of a verse that plays a HUGE part in my life: Romans 8:28 - And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose.

God knows the very hairs on our heads and He delights in working all things together for our good. He knows the desires of our hearts- after all- He is the one who created our inmost being. Psalms 139:13
