Modern Coastal Office Makeover

Simple Stylings
by Simple Stylings
Hi friends! This modern space is WAY outside my design comfort zone but I really enjoyed putting it together! I incorporated some coastal elements by adding twine to the basket pendant, the oversized woven basket on my desk and paint dipped baskets on the bookshelves. The accessories, like the shell bowl, starfish, octopus print and large coral, also add a coastal touch.
This space has to wear so many hats. It’s a place for me to blog but also has to function as a small photography studio. We needed space for little man to do his homework as well as office supply and craft storage.
The the basket pendant and office chair are both DIY's. You can find the chair on the blog but I haven't posted about the pendant light. It was a basket that I spray paint, added some twine and hung it up with and Ikea pendant light kit.
This is my desk area. I built the pallet desk myself and added fabric to the bulletin board.
The gallery wall is one of my favorite parts of the filled with little personal treasures of our family.
I wanted to get creative with my storage solution and I love the whimsy these gold spray painted animals add to these jar lids.
Here is another desk view.
Here is the horrible before picture for contrast :) Whew it was bbbbaaaadddd! I hope you enjoyed this room makeover and you can search the blog for the specific DIY posts! Cheers!
