When E and I were house hunting, one of our musts was to have a minimum of 4 bedrooms. Nope, not so that when our families came to visit us they would have somewhere to stay, but because we had plans for each of those rooms. Our Realtor did a wonderful job and found a house with 5 bedrooms and it’s perfect!
One of these bedrooms is being used for my home office. Y’all I’ve been pee piddlin’ with that room now for almost a year! Yes, I know, it’s ridiculous! I do one thing and move on to another part of the house, but no more. I need y’all to help hold me accountable. I’m giving myself the next 4 weeks to get this room done. Yep, 4 weeks. I know those 4 weeks are going to go fast and we have family coming into town, but I’m bound and determined to have this room completely finished!
Each week for the next 4 weeks, I’ll post about my progress and on week 4, I’ll reveal my home office makeover! Having you on this makeover journey with me is going to be so much fun. I’m excited!
So my home office is a bedroom across the hall from our guest bedroom. I chose this room because it has the most light. I take a lot of pictures and natural lighting is always the best. Plus, when I’m working on a project, I need as much light as I can get.
It’s a good sized room at 12 x 14 giving me plenty of room for all the furniture and craft areas. There’s is nothing special or spectacular about this room right now. It’s a very pale yellow, has 2 windows, a closet and that’s about it! But what I have planned for this room is going to bring it to life!
Home Office Makeover Decor Plans
The first thing I do when it comes to decorating a room is to come up with 3-5 words to describe that room. I call them my Room Words. Everything involving the decor of that room has to fit those words. If it doesn’t, it’s not happening!
Next is a mood board. You can’t just start throwing a room together! To start the decorating process, I create a secret board on Pinterest and just start pinning anything I see that I like. When you do this, eventually, you’ll start to see patterns and it’s from there that you can create your mood board. If your ideas and styles change, that’s okay, but it’s a good idea to have a guide and that’s where your mood board comes in handy. It keeps you on track!
Things on your mood board don’t have to be the exact decor you want in your room. It can be on your board because you like the colors, the concept, or the piece so don’t limit yourself based on that.
Home Office Makeover Mood Board
You can see my mood board below with my colors. As you can see, I’m going for bold, vibrant colors. I love color and since this is going to be my room, I’m going to make it just as I would like!
- Since this room is going to be so full of color, I’m going to do the reverse and have pops of white accessories. I think that will be so much fun!
- All furniture will be colored and modern
- I ‘ll have some type of wall decal lettering, but not sure what at this time.
- An accent wall..either painted or wallpaper
- The main wall color will be gold
- A seating area with 2 oversized chairs with pillows of different textures
So that’s my plan for my home office makeover! Thanks so much for joining me and I’ll see you next week with my progress report!
