Progress Report: Office

One of the features of this house that sold us was that there is a bedroom on the main level – bonus that it is across the hall from the bathroom and steps from the kitchen.  We always lamented not having a true office at the old house from which Bradley could do his freelance work.  Turns out this room is so large that we also added my small desk and still have room for a seating area in the future.

The paint color is Roaring Mountain by Ralph Lauren.  It is a soothing warm blue, probably not what Bradley would choose off a paint chip, but nice so we haven’t considered changing it.

We are throwing around the idea of stealing some space from this room and the pantry closet in order to move the laundry to the main level.  We would have to move the doorway of the office into the foyer, so I’m thinking skinny french doors like this would be pretty.  That will be a couple of years down the road, so the plan isn’t in stone.

Here is a before shot from the real estate listing:

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.
