Finished Office

It has been a long haul but I'm finally done.
Organizing an office has got to be one of the most challenging many items end up in there and it can be difficult to decide what should stay and what should go.  By the end, when you get down to the last piles like this,

and this, 

it's just not as much fun as it was in the beginning.
But the finished result is so worth it.



I am loving my new look. 
I like the colour and the feel of more space.  
I love that there's less stuff but it's still cozy.
I love that pretty rug!  Bless you sweet Ikea!!
I am enjoying the new floor plan which took some time to achieve, but is working well.

I really wanted to have my chair by the window so I could sit in the sun.

I also wanted some empty spots for those piles that inevitably end up in here.

I wanted to have more wood in my space and I hoped to use that black metal shelf that I got at the Red Barn last year.

After my time in Italy and Ireland, I wanted more ivy in my life.

I wanted to keep my little keepsake notes but I switched them from a bulletin board to this cute window frame and I edited them down to a more manageable amount.

I also wanted to have the things I love around my work space but again I had to do some careful editing to keep it to an amount that feels homey but not overwhelming.  This won't be the same amount for everyone so you have to decide what feels right for you.

I so wish I could not have this gigantor printer in here but the thing is, 
we do need to print stuff! 

I got an unexpected addition to the room just before I'd finished.  
My friend Jen brought me this fabulous guy! 
I love him and he is so perfect for the space.

My experiment with keeping most items the same colour does make the space feel less busy and more spacious.  I like that feeling of being enveloped.

It is a fantastic feeling to have a room organized and decorated in a way that makes you feel at home. I hope you'll be inspired to try something new in one of your spaces! It can be a lot of work but you just have to take it one small task at a time.
In the end it is so worth it!
