When we moved into our new home and I saw the formal living room, I knew right away that it was going to be converted into our work space. It had a lot of natural light, a fire place, and french doors that open to our garden patio. The challenge then was how to create a space that would work for both my husband and me? Thus, the idea was born for a his and hers home office. To start, I couldn’t have made it all happen without two essential partners: Wayfair and Chelsey Hale Designs. They were game changing in the process, helping bring my vision to life from start to finish.
The concept we wanted consisted of neutral colors with a little pop of color that would appeal to both my husband and me. Our color palate: grey, white, gold, black, and blush with hints of green from plants and artwork. Here is what Chelsey helped me come up with in terms of the best products from Wayfair:
1. Lumbar Pillow 2. Lumbar Pillow 3. White Decorative Pillow 4. White Curtain Panels 5. Brass Curtain Rod 6. Mirror 7. Grey Chair 8. Floor Lamp 9. Shelves 10-12. Storage Baskets 13. Coffee Table 16. White desk accessories 17. Black Desk Lights 18. Paper weight 19. Gold Pen Holder 20. Wooden Desk Tray 21. Black Chairs 22. White & Gold Desk Chair 23. Black Desks 24-25. Planter stands 26. Fig leaf tree 27. Gold frames 28. Desk Frames 29. Succulent Stands
The Registry also serves as a hub for couples, letting them personalize their registry and orders by uploading photos, sharing notes for their guests and friends. I was able to have my husband collaborate with me on products to be sure he liked them, and he could easily make notes and add his own favorites to our profile as well.
Another major part of bringing this space to life was the gallery wall. It was key in creating an environment where I would want to work from every day! Minted provided beautiful art prints that remind me of California, from where I recently moved. I really wanted to incorporate desert and beach scenes to bring a piece of my SoCal roots with me here to Colorado. And I can’t rave about it enough! If you are looking to create a statement wall, a gallery is the way to do so! Minted has so many great options no matter what inspires you and can even help you style the gallery.
We are SO very happy with how this once formal living room transformed into the office of our dreams! Now, it brings me joy and inspiration to spend time here working. And finally, a big thank you to Wayfair for their help and beautiful products!
