|Current Office Painted in Sherwin-Williams' Interactive Cream, SW6113|
I’ ve decided my home office needs a redesign – something to continue sparking my creativity while keeping me calm. Carpet, paint color, and furniture are being replaced. After many months searching for furniture , I selected this Sligh computer desk because it affords me file space, computer space, and storage space. My library of design and small business books has grown as well as all of the design material samples I've gathered over the years. Although, I’m purchasing this brand new, I’m checking my local consignment shops for a few bookcases and a writing desk. I would like my office to have an eclectic look including a reading corner with a comfortable chair, ottoman and reading lamp where I can catch a nap in between blog posts(LOL).

For paint color, I used a color green in a piece of artwork as my leading pattern and narrowed it down to Sherwin-Williams’ Lemon Verbena, SW 7726 and Ruskin Room Green, SW 0042. Both colors are beautiful; Lemon Verbena has a little more punch to it. Since you can see just a bit of my loft office on the second floor of my home from the first floor, the color has to tie in with my existing color scheme. Which one do you think I’ll chose? Leave a comment and let me know your favorite color. Just remember both of these colors are darker than they appear in these photos.

The carpeting up my stairs to the second floor leading to my office and a back bedroom and bath is shot. It was a cheap builder’s grade carpet that matted down terribly. After much research, I’ve decided to go with a loop carpet – a berber in a light golden wheat tone. This should give me the durability I need and will not mat. My carpeting is from a small company called Gulistan which I purchased from my wholesale flooring store, ProSource.

I hope to find a black bookcase such as the one pictured below for the wall across from my desk. Don’t want the finish on the bookcase to be close to the finish of the computer desk – too “matchy matchy”. This black piece of furniture will ground the room. Where did I read that you should always include something black in your rooms? Also, notice that it has legs which the desk does not. I don't like having all of my furniture sitting entirely on the floor. Think I can find something like this in a consignment shop? The hunt is on!

Here is a beautiful writing desk which I saw on Craigslist that just might do the trick. It's from a local consignment shop. Will have to check the finish in person to see if it will complement the Sligh computer desk.

Are you excited to see the final results of my new office? I've already painted it. Community Hospice comes tomorrow to take my existing desk and my rug will be laid on Wednesday. As soon as it starts to come together, I'll share photos with you. Don't forget to leave a comment and guess which paint color I chose. What about you? Are you ready for a room redesign?
