Pretty In Pink

 

So I have decided that I need an office in our home. I am tired of writing blog posts in bed and working on client projects at the kitchen table! I need a space where I can be inspired, work and keep my business organized. The problem is that our house only has 3 bedrooms, which might seem like plenty of room for only 2 people, but it's not...trust me. And because we just had our kitchen remodeled, we aren't going anywhere anytime soon. Our master suite is located upstairs along with an open area at the top of the stairs which my husband considers "his" office (and he's made it clear that he's not sharing!). And one of our spare bedrooms is considered his "man room" and contains an abundance of seating and a larger than necessary flat screen (if you ask me).....but I guess that's fair since the rest of the house is decorated to my liking. I had to give him something, right? ;-)

So the other spare bedroom is a guest room, and since we rarely have overnight guests I'm considering turning this room into my office / guest bedroom. The only items we have in there so far are a black four poster bed and a flat screen television, so I pretty much have a blank canvas to work with. An added bonus is that the room has a spacious closet, so I can easily store unsightly craft supplies, projects, etc.

I've been thinking about a color scheme for the last several weeks and for some reason I keep coming back to the color pink! This is very out of character for me as I am usually all about the blues, turquoise, etc. But this time I am picturing a volume of white....white bedding, white draperies, a white desk.....a hint of grey.....and different shades of pink! Just like the picture below!

Here are some of the spaces that I have been admiring over the last few weeks...

I love the white walls in the room above, but my walls are already painted a light shade of gray which I think will still work.

I love the pillows on the bed above...I might just have to recreate them!

All of that storage space sure would be nice...
