I (@southernsurroundings) think there is one last room of our new house I haven't shown you-the office! We had our cabinet maker build a great desk with built-ins for it. We had them painted in the same dark grey of our laundry room (Iron Mountain by Benjamin Moore). We also used the same natural color butcher block for the desk top as the laundry room.
This piece itself transformed the whole office. I knew it would be a great place to store books but I was a little stumped as to what to do with the rest of the shelves. After a trip to Old Time Pottery, I had a plan in mind!
Every shelf and needs a little greenery to give it some life. I found so many cute faux plants there.Now onto accessories!
My next stop was the pottery aisle. These wood tone and white vases really stand out here. Old Time Pottery has beautiful pottery. It was easy to choose different colors and sizes. The gold sphere and globe compliment the gold picture frame. Oh and no office is complete without a clock.
There was still something missing when I stepped back. I played around with my arrangement and added in some books for height and texture.
I love the way these shelves turned out! The office really feels homey now.
