One Room Challenge: Week 2

office nook

Welcome back to the One Room Challenge. This is week 2 { see week 1 if you missed it }. I'm making over a small loft office space in a chic downtown space. I'm all about the black and white look so today I am sharing a bit of the plans for the decorating thats about to go down. Ordering items always takes time so getting a plan together before you actually decorate is always best. In terms of the layout here is what I am thinking...

layout for office

I love the idea of a computer workstation and art wall. The art I've chosen is a mix of her feminine and boho glamour. I found the chic artwork on minted. I am choosing all black frames for the black and white art so as to not compete but complement the computer screen so it all looks like one big, beautiful gallery wall.

I also am pretty much obsessed with the Jonathan Adler sconce that I found on lamps plus. We are going to throw in some chic white Eames chairs with wood on the base to break up the harshness in the space. I am all about adding natural elements here.  I also love this black and white chevron basket to put her drafts and photography poles in.  I want to keep her workspace clutter free and super clean so on the opposite side of the desk, we will put the large white bookcase filled with all that she needs.

office items

I find that adding some vintage finds she already has in her home will really be what makes a more loft + modern space, warm. Next, I'll add some greenery to the room, which will give amazing life and energy to the space. I also love how green looks against black and white. I found this plush moroccan rug at wayfair for a GREAT price. It pulls together all the black items and adds a textural element to the room since we are opting for no curtains. The open windows in her loft space are so pretty.

That's it for now, will fill you in on more next week. Don't forget to check out my other fab decoristas and their ORC's:
