There is one thing you should know about me. I love a challenge. I love the adrenaline rush and the feeling of pushing myself to new limits, especially when it comes to something I’m passionate about.
I’ve followed Calling It Home’s One Room Challenge throughout the years and I decided it was about time I participate myself! The rules are simple, makeover a room in your home in 6 weeks and give weekly updates. Eeek! Considering most major room makeovers I do take 6-12 months to reveal on the blog, this is a HUGE challenge for me. And I’m ready for it. Kinda.
We’ve lived in our home for just over 1.5 years (which seems crazy, it still feels like yesterday) and there is only one room left in our home that I have done absolutely NOTHING to. OUR OFFICE. I mean you guys, I have literally done nothing except move the desk in there. There are still moving boxes in there and pictures sitting on the floor. I’ll show a real life picture next week, but this was how clean and pretty it looked when we moved in.
The thing is, my husband works from home so he uses the office almost every day. This is HIS space in the house. He is gracious and has given me full reign of the rest of the house, including the entire garage (my office) and he deserves to have a manly and well decorated space of his won. It’s time.
I am actually really excited about this project. The office is the only room in our home with dark molding and it already has great bones, it just needs to feel like home.
I want a dark, masculine and industrial yet classic look for the space. Here are a few spaces that I’m using as inspiration for the room.
INSPIRATION FOR OUR OFFICE
So are you catching the style I’m going for? Well, here we go! I’m a little nervous but super excited to get started and my husband is actually really excited to have his office done! It’s definitely going to be a busy next 6 weeks. Be sure to follow along on Instagram. I have a feeling I’ll post some progress photos over there too!
