New Home Office

During the hot spell this summer, Bradley’s office, which sits over our garage, was staying much hotter than other rooms in the house.  He spends a lot of time in there, whereas neither of us spend any time in the guest room/craft room.  I offered to switch the two rooms and repaint.  Of course, the guest bedroom furniture perfectly fit the original room, and the original office is smaller because the closet is built out into the room (More on the guest bedroom later!).

I took this opportunity to pick new paint colors for both rooms.  For the office, I suggested that we trend more to the grey family – the original color was a brown with a red tint to it.  We decided to stay with the same level of darkness to the paint, but a more grey-mocha.  I taped a lot of swatches up behind his desk to make sure it would look good with the wood color.  Bradley got a new desk months ago from Craigslist – the Galant desk from Ikea.  We actually ended up picking the same paint chip – Behr’s Squirrel.

The room is still unfinished – I need to rehang the artwork.  We are also on the hunt for a reasonably priced Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman set like this:

And a reminder of the before:

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
