I Just Can’t Seem to Help Myself

Being a total girly-girl, my house has a lot of pink and purple. My powder room is bright pink, the dining room has a pink chandelier, the breakfast nook is pink with green accents, the living room color scheme is pink and orange and my duvet in my bedroom is purple. So, when I was deciding on a color scheme for the office, I thought it would be fun needed to shy away from my usual girly colors and do something different.

Other rooms avoid pink and purple as well, the family room and guest room and the patios, but that’s pretty much it. Before I moved in, I knew I wanted to have one room with navy blue walls. My desk is brown, along with the sofa table I bought to match it, so I decided the office color scheme would be blue, white and brown. I’ve had fun looking for blue and white furniture and accents, and the room is coming along, but I realized a few weeks ago that it needs some excitement. And then I came across the most ridiculous/crazy wall art ever—in pink—and I decided that this room will have pink accents in it as well.

I’ve been putting a full-court press on getting this room ready the last few weeks. I ordered the wall piece, ottomans for under the sofa table and have been buying art for a gallery wall. I also received a fun pink lamp from family friends as a housewarming gift. My goal is to have the office completed before I leave for the beach in just over two weeks. We’ll see!

This sleeper love seat from Ikea is the main piece of furniture in the room. I like how it has both light and navy blue, so when it comes to art and other accessories, there are lots of options. I will be sure to take some before and after pictures to share as I finally get this room off my to-do list!
