Monday

the lavender office begins...

One of my goals this week is to get started on my lavender office makeover.  I mentioned in a previous post that I'm really loving lavender and it has inspired a little makeover in my office.  As my design business starts to take off, I'm spending more and more time in there.  I want it to be a place where I feel inspired.  Right now it's ok, but it doesn't really do much for me.  The walls are bright green (way brighter than I anticipated) and it just wasn't what I wanted originally.  Now I've lived with it for 3 years and it's time to change.  My mom just so happened to find some oops paint for me that I think will work perfectly!  I think I may have to do a little paint mixing to get it just right but for $5 I'll take it.  I want it to feel girly but not juvenile and I think lavender is just the ticket.

Here are some images that have already got me dreaming of my new office...

the wall color here is pretty close to what I have in mind...



so glamorous!






and another thought I had...paint the ceiling and leave the walls white...hmmmm....

so now it's decision time, paint the walls and leave the ceiling white, paint the walls white and the ceiling lavender, or paint the whole thing lavender (ceiling and walls)...decisions decisions...Wish me luck!

I love lavender. I had my room at my parents house painted lavender and it was so peaceful. I can't wait to see what you do.

Great inspiration. I can't wait to see what you do. I also have the bug to redo my little home office, it's so plain and boring. I wish I could pull off one of these looks.
