Office Inspiration

A currently on-going project of mine {ughhh...are there any other kind?} is the office makeover.  As you might remember from our "before" photos I posted awhile back, our office has french doors that open right into our front entry, so it is one of the first rooms you see when you come into the house, making it one of the most important in my mind.  

And the second reason I decided to kick off our decorating with the office is because I cannot live with the current state of our office any longer.  I just can't.  Papers in stacks, Random trinkets that have no home stuffed into our once tidy desk drawers.  Cords. Everywhere.  It gives me anxiety just writing this.  For real. 

The first thing you need to know about me {beside my name + the fact that I love a good cheese plate} is that I am happiest when everything in my life is in it's proper place, whether that place is our address book, my calender, our "key drawer", or my closet shelves {a post for another day!}.  

My husband tends to think that as a designer, I would like to decorate our home with just a bunch of pretty {+ useless} things, but I really do love the challenge of making a space both beautiful as well as functional.  I really do.  And this office needs to be both of those things.  Here are a few photos I've pinned lately that have been inspiring my office makeover:

Love this clean, white storage + Chinese Foo Dogs.  Wish I had exposed brick in my house.  A girl can dream, I guess!

And... a Fiddle Leaf Fig - my absolute favorite indoor plant!
