office inspiration

the first room i'm tackling in my little brain is our office/guest bedroom. we have decided to turn the master bedroom, that is at the back of the house and leads out into the backyard with big glass doors to be a more social room. it also has a bathroom and master closet attached. i think, for now, it will be best for ricky to have both of those in a space separate from our bedroom. lucia will be in our room for the first months, and any extra sleep we can get will be nice. ricky has a hard time being quiet. i actually think it is impossible for him. he even wakes me up now when he is putting on his socks. ;)

this is looking in from the kitchen/living room down the hall into the back master (or as we will have it office/guest bedroom) and out into the back yard.
a peek into the room.

this was my original inspiration. i love vintage mixed with modern. i love the black and white mixed with the wood and the industrial lighting elements. 

on Thursday we found this pull out bed sofa at a second hand store in great condition. it has a thatched, burlap material and is a little darker than a salmon.

this lead to some pinterest searching of what i had in mind to incorparate it into the office vision. our current computer desk is a black, clean lined ikea desk so I wanted to tie in the black and white. i found this office tour.

i'm loving the big black and white prints with the huge text poster.

i found some of these elements already, and hoping to start pulling it together soon!

1. asher desk chair / world market 2. door knob finial / urban outfitters 3. brimfield bookcase / urban outfitters 4. capiz shell laptop table / world market 5. black and white pillow / ikea 6. magical thinking crewel ikat pillow / urban outfitters 7. checkered throw / ikea 8. rugs / ikea vitten & ikea lappijung ruta . 9. mini storage rack / urban outfitters 10. cities of california typography collage / stay gold media.
