HOME OFFICE DESIGN UPDATE: Chair and Accessories

Hi!  Hope everyone enjoyed the weekend and warm weather.  Yesterday's weather was a wash, with massive amounts of heavy rain.  Well, it's Back to a full and busy work week for me.

For those of you that follow my blog, you know I have been working on my home office for a year or so.  My last post (seen here), I revealed the design, minus the office chair.  Well, I'm happy to report, the chair FINALLY arrived!! After having ordered the chair, back in November, and dealing with delay upon delay, I'm delighted to be sitting on it, as we speak (lol).  Believe me - I was not happy, waiting so long because of someone else's error.  Because of the inconvenience, I did receive a discount.

In addition to the new chair, I have been adding new accessories to the space.  There's still more I'd like to incorporate: a new window treatment (i.e., a fabric shade); possibly a new wall color (in a soft pink); and, more books to add to the shelving.

Take a look at the space now:

A close up shot shows the two fabrics.  

The fabric on the seat is standard but I added a custom look to the back of the chair from fabric I purchased separately.
Chair by Bernhardt, purchased at Safavieh (semi custom).

This small etagere is a vintage piece I purchased last year.  It goes perfectly in the space and underneath the window.  Accessories in a mix of new and old (vintage), compliment the space.

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Absolutely in love with your office! What type of countertop did you use? I struggle with what do with my office and what type of surface to use.

  2. Thanks Kristen! The countertop is melamine in antique white (1 1/8 inch thick). It's is great workable countertop and easy to wipe clean. I hope I've inspired you to create a similar look. Hope everything works out with your office design!
