Just because you put a desk in a room does not make it an office — proof below. I’m finally going to take on the task of transforming this storage room, which is directly off my bedroom, into an actual office/workspace for myself.
It’s funny to think I’ve actually worked in here, as if it was an actual, functioning, creative space. Don’t be deceived by the craft table, art supplies, and studio lights, there is nothing creative happening in that room…YET! Here are the plans: Fresh paint and a new lighting fixture is a quick fix. But let’s talk about these floors…It’s one thing to have ugly, beige, brick patterned vinyl floors. It’s another thing to lay an ugly beige rug on top of the already ugly beige vinyl floors. Talk about insult to injury! First things first, burn the rug. Then, figure out the cheapest and easiest way to upgrade the floors. Thank God this room has a window, because if not, it would feel like an oversized closet. I’ll replace the curtains with a simple shade, nothing fancy. In all honesty, I will probably leave the shades open most of the time to avoid claustrophobia.The room is quite narrow, and the “custom” shelving protruding from the wall only makes it worse. A little demo to remove that whole wall of shelving will make the room feel much more open.This is my design inspiration board. Bright, Colorful, and Fun is what I’m going for. The space should give off a “creative person works here” vibe. I love the look of fresh white walls, but incorporating bright pops of color and bold patterns through furniture, artwork, and accessories. I’m excited to begin remodeling, and i’ll be sharing my progress with you guys along the way!
