Happy Tuesday! I realize that I am WAY behind on blogging, but I do have good reasons. When I met with Ian @ Maslov Photography a few weeks ago to discuss wedding details, I was so impressed by his home office. My brain immediately started going into overdrive about all of the ways I could improve my own home office – which in my opinion was not functional. Some of you may be able to relate to the madness…but when I get an idea like this in my head, I dive in head first and don’t quit until it is perfect. This is one of my strengths, but it also a weakness (as Donny so kindly pointed out – haha) because I tend to forgo sleep & sanity until the project is complete. I also wanted to get it done now because we will be out of town later this month and then September, October, & November are going to be crazy busy!
When we first moved into our house almost 2-1/2 years ago, we painted the office a mossy green color and we have hated it ever since. But, like life goes, it was low on the priority list of things to change, so we have lived with it until now. This past week, amidst photo shoots and family get-togethers, I planned out what I wanted to do in the office – and then my plan extended to our bedroom. On Saturday, my friend Brooke along with my parents came over to help us so we could get all of the painting knocked out in one day – and other than a few touch ups – we did!
So far our bedroom is completely put back together (other than new wall décor I’m planning), and the office should be done tonight or tomorrow. I am so excited to post pictures (when everything is presentable) because the colors turned out even more amazing than I expected! We went with “herbal tea” for the office and “tropical waters” in the bedroom. Sounds like 2 things I could use right now- haha! Since I don’t have pictures of the rooms yet, here are my favorite pictures that came up on google when I typed in tropical waters and herbal tea. Enjoy!
