Happy Friday! Anyone setting aside time to make some paper piles this weekend? If you are I might be stopping by. Call me crazy but that’s my idea of a good time. Ha. I hope my last post was helpful if you need to get your paper/home office set up whipped into shape! My office is looking a little different than the pictures I just shared. If you hang out with me on IG stories you’ve probably already seen my new office paint! I was debating between about 10 different shades of green.
I just love green. Did you know that?
I bet you did. :)
It kind of made me smile when I realized that I had picked up shades of green that matched my planner, my binder and about 10 different shirts I own. Clearly I’m drawn to this shade! I finally narrowed it down to one and I’m so happy with how it turned out!
The winner? Sherwin Williams “Quietude” at 50%. I tried it at 75% and 25% too.. because I’m tricky like that. But 50% was hands down the winner. Not too dark.. not too light. Green with a grey tone (which was what I wanted) but not so much that it looks more grey than green.
Ignore the Christmas rug. I took these pics right after the paint was dry and hadn’t switched out the rug yet!
What do you think!? Fun change!?
I was so ready for something new in this space!
I can’t wait to decorate and I’m kicking things off with my new office rug! My kids spend as much time in this room as I do so I wanted something that felt fun. I also wanted a rug that complimented the new green paint, but was neutral enough that it would work with any other colors/decor I decide to decorate with. This woven tacha rug is perfect and even more beautiful in person. So much texture and I love the rose gold stripes! I think I’m going to need a rug pad under it to flatten it completely but this table is SO heavy! I’m not sure I can convince Kenny to lift it for me again.. ha. *Sidenote because I get asked about this table a lot.. I had it made custom when we built the house. I sketched the legs and my carpenter made them and then we put a quartz slab on top. Hence the reason it’s SO heavy. :)
I hope you like the changes so far! I know some people like the blue paint better and that’s ok. For me this green paint is a welcome change. It feels calm and so me.. like I’m coming home. :) I desperately need some new barstools. The seats on our previous barstools in this room completely peeled off! They were inexpensive from Home Goods so I guess I’m lucky they lasted as long as they did. We’ve been pulling our kitchen barstools in this room to use temporarily and the back and forth is getting a little old. :) I’ll share the new barstools when I find them and other office progress along the way!
If you are working on your home office and paper organization with me this week and need a few storage solutions I found so many great options! Both for paper and also for overall office organization. I lined them all below!
Enjoy your weekend and call if you’re organizing!
I’ll bring the popcorn.
