Mood Board: Home Office Inspiration

by Melissa

Slowly but surely every part of our new place is coming together. The unfortunate thing is one of the last rooms in a disarray is the home office, where I spend all my time blogging.

Here is what it looks like as a type this….


Yeah, not pretty and definitely lacks any organization. Good thing I have a nice view out my window otherwise I would be suffocating in a pile of mess. At least one thing came out of this messy room and that was the inspiration to write a blog post. One that shares with you my mood board for how I plan to get this room on track. You know until it strikes again and I want to redecorate.

My plan is to use a dresser for all of my arts and crafts storage. Each drawer dedicated to different areas. So I will have drawers for stamps/stencils, paints, glues, ribbon/trim, etc. I love my desk despite it currently being cluttered but I do plan to put a bookcase in the corner so I can keep my stuff that I reach for often like my printer, mail and various other papers tidy. I want a great piece of art to display over the dresser so that when everything is put away this area can be used for a place to relax and read. Which is why I want a great reading chair to snuggle into. Of course I will want to get a few accessory pieces like a lamp and then a rug to tie it all together.

Here are the inspiration pieces that I found.

1. Orleans Dresser

2. Ravenna Rectangle – Area Rug​

3. Melody Matching Chair

4. Elgin Table Lamp

5. Ridgeway Bookcase

6. Summer’s Light Framed Art

All of these inspiration pieces I found at Havertys and even better they are currently running a Labor Day sale.

Great items. I think your plan is great.

I’m lucky if I can keep my clothes in trend, let alone my furniture. We actually just updated our furniture for the first time in 10 years and I’m so much happier with it! Changed the entire mood of the room!

Haha Nicole! I hear you on that one. I usually try to keep my main pieces very traditional and classic. I might throw in some trendy pillows or decor here and there but that is about it.

I want one of everything pictured – except the painting, that’s not really my style – but I love everything else!

Yeah, I don’t know if I will go with that exact painting either. I’m thinking of possibly going out and taking some of my own pictures around the area and doing a collage possibly.
