Pendant Lighting for An Office Entry

By

I’m working on a little office upgrade. It’s a quaint little commercial space in downtown Southern Pines, NC and it needs a little TLC. We’ll give it some paint, upgrade the bathrooms, repair and re-coat the maple hardwoods and it will be open for biz. The entries to the office…

Desks

A desk comparison

By

Not too long ago I was looking for a little, affordable desk for my 5-year old DC’s room. I came across the Threshold desk at Target. Affordable…absolutely and it reminded me of other more expensive simple, minimalist desks. It got great reviews and so the decision was easy. I like…

Sarah’s Desk Revamp

A few months ago I bought this old desk at my favorite local thrift shop for about $30.   I was immediately drawn to the brass pulls. And then upon closer inspection, I realized it kind of has a Parsons look with classic straight lines. The finish was in horrible…

Uggh, the chronic indecision continues. Previously, I thought I was settled on a capiz shell chandy referenced in Part II. That all fell away as I continued to add fixtures to the field of consideration–cause that’s a no fail cure for indecision right? So here are the other fixtures I…

Here’s a little office action, remember I’m making over my office slowly but surely as previously posted here and here. A little review– the wall color is Ben Moore’s Blue Note, the color appears most true underneath the window, apologies the room is dark because I need some lighting. I…

Make Me Over

By

Meet my $10 mid century office chair. Nice solid wood base on nickel casters, everything is in good working order, the wood even looks like it might be teak or something pretty and Danish looking. Worn–yes, sad—probably, hopeful–absolutely. So my first instinct was black and white small vertical stripes. Then…

I’m in the process of doing some redecorating in my office and here’s Part I in case you missed it. I’m in the middle of a lighting conundrum. You see, I was quite certain I wanted this. I see it as abstract branches more than coral. But I have two concerns,…

I’ve been working on re-doing my office and I’ve known for several months that I wanted to paint a room navy blue. I’ve flip flopped on which room it was going to be and then finally chose my office. The chosen navy hue is Benjamin Moore’s Blue Note. And I couldn’t…
