Office Room Updates

|
We are finally getting some warmer weather and so I have been thinking about a few changes in our home. As you know my daughter is three and I cannot believe that in those three years she seems to have accumulated more belongings than both my husband and I, and so we have upgraded the size of her bedroom and she loves her new rabbit themed bedroom, however we have ever so slightly neglected her old room. It's now a place where I have my clothes, makeup, blogging bits and anything else we can't find a home for. But now I feel it's time to actually create a space for me to be able to work and so we are creating a little office for me, my husband wanted a gym, but I got my own way! Ha!


As always pinterest is my best friend when it comes to searching for some inspiration for our home. We have been searching high and low for the perfect scheme, and I really like the idea of white furniture being match with pale grey and pale pink. White bedroom designs are a classic option that will never date. With the right accessories and soft furnishings, a white bedroom can still be a warm and inviting space for you to enjoy. A white colour scheme creates a calming backdrop that will become a tranquil haven for you to relax, but it's all about those important finishing touches that matter. I have decided to go for subtle accents of grey and pale pink to give a softer touch to the office, with touches of copper metal for a cosy but chic room. Texture is another great way to mix-up an all-white bedroom design. Knitted cushions, woolen throws and thick rugs will make a white room look cosy. I can't help but feel that these styles together are a great way to achieve a completely unique look in a white room. Now let's talk finishing touches. 

A trip to IKEA is essential when it comes to getting brilliant white wardrobes that you can take away that day. But as usual with anything from IKEA you never really leave with the things you went in for, we came out with a car load, as you do. Hello Brimnes wardrobe! I have to say it did take me a while to decided which furniture to go for, but I settled on this gorgeous three door wardrobe that is perfect to store my ever growing collection of shoes, bags and clothes. However, it wasn't going to be enough room for all my makeup accessories and all those little bits, so we added a Kallax unit in there too. We placed this unit on it's side so we could optimise the space.

This office is going to be a place where I need to focus for work but I also want it to look pretty too. And one thing that I have wanted for some time is some beautiful feminine prints for my walls and Posterlounge gave me the perfect opportunity for this with their amazing range. Posterlounge are a company who offer a large range of prints on their website, they are based in Germany but ship all over the world. Each print comes with a selection of materials to choose from depending on how you want it to look on your wall. Poster, Canvas, Ali-Bond, Fortex, Glass Acrylic, and even wood. I am not going to lie their range is pretty impressive! For the prints for my office I knew that I wanted some prints that we soft, pretty and very feminine and of course I really love typography too. Typography is favourite decor element to many people and it’s already used in many homes in a various ways and this Oh la la print is gorgeous and I'm planning on putting this in a white wooden frame too. It's very bloggeresque. 


The next couple of prints I selected were perfect finishing touches to my pretty pink decor, because they have hues of pink and rose gold within them. The Minimalism is an abstract circle framed poster in pink, grey and copper, perfect for any room. Inspired by the the minimalist Scandi trend, this framed wall art piece has been printed on silk finish paper and one in a wooden frame will sure to make my office super pretty. I would love to get a few more prints from the Minimalism range for a feature wall in my new office, but these are perfect for now. I also got this Argyle pink and gold print too which is another abstract print, I am pretty obsessed with these kind of prints and I really loved the colours in this one and the gold accents throughout which are perfect for the theme. Lastly, we have this gorgeous Little Rabbit print. As you know my daughter has a rabbit themed room and I'm sure that this print will end up in her room, but I think it compliments the new space and other prints very well. All the prints at Posterlounge are available in different materials. These ones are durable, high-quality printed posters. Using UV-resistant ink on coated, bright white premium paper results in smooth colour transitions at a high resolution, excellent edge sharpness and brilliant colours with outstanding fade resistance. The satin finish of premium photo paper ensures a silky, matte look without distracting reflections. But you can choose from poster, canvas, Alu-Bibond, Fortex, Acrylic Glass, and even printed on wood so there is something for all tastes.

As the colour scheme is white, soft blush pink and grey I have selected a few pieces for a pine book shelf we already had to add those finishing touches. I am thinking about painting this book shelf white, but I can't decide whether to keep it like this or paint it? But for now I have been buying little purchases every now and again and adding them to the shelves. I have picked up a few homeware pieces from places like Next, Sainsbury's and TK Maxx, actually I spend far too much time and money down the homeware aisles. But I have found some great finds. I also like to get pieces from B&Ms, Primark and H&M too! Greenery is something that I want to have throughout my home, I just think it's a great way to add a little life to a home and so I have been obsessed with these cactuses, and rose gold pot with fake plants they are pretty great for flaylays too. Something else I got from IKEA was this cute teacup and saucer, I have been looking for one for ages but never one I actually liked. But hello, cute blog prop! Something else that I had added into this room decor is the most adorable copper coloured basket from Habitat and these copper round mirrors. This pair of mirrors have a contemporary copper coloured frame and chain. Hung together or separately, they add a point interest to the room and a simple white rug. 
Overall I’m really happy with my new office room so far, we still have a lot to do. A lick of paint on the wall, painting the handmade book shelf and frame the prints. Slowly but surely the room is coming together really well and sure has a lot of character. Having a space for me is such a great way for me to be proactive and stay focused, meanwhile looking super pretty at the same time. What do you think of my office space so far?
