When we last left off, I shared the recently finished powder room…yes, that was back in April so it’s been awhile. I mentioned then that as we make this house our home, we want to take time on each of the rooms, and decorate them for our tastes now, and well as invest in staple pieces that we can keep forever. It’s going to take a long time to complete everything, so I have to tell myself that I need to be patient throughout this process, and not waste money on impulse buys.
As I have discussed before, we and working with a local interior designer to help us transform the spaces and I can’t say enough great things about the remarkable Kendall Simmons. She recently went out on her own and started her own business and she is doing amazing things, not only for us, but for others as well…including some of our closest friends. You can see more of her work on her newly launched website here. And you can read some of her best tips and tricks by visiting her blog, too.
So, here’s the show and tell of my brand new office…and yes, coming into this space everyday makes my workdays (and nights) a lot more fun now! Here are some pictures to get you better acquainted with this gorgeous (yes I’m partial) space:
