A follow-up from my previous home office post...
The chair is here! I came home yesterday from work and to my surprise...my chair had arrived! The woman at Ballard told me it would be delivered in mid-April. She was wrong, but I'm not complaining! I love it and couldn't be happier with it. SO glad I followed my mom's advice and didn't go with a solid off-white fabric. How boring! The space needed a punch of color in a bad way!
The chair works with the blue/green colors throughout our home...which I think is important. I like rooms to flow well, and this chair is a great transition from the living room to the den.
Plus, a few custom details that make my life SOO much easier!
1) a place to put our mail and bills, etc
2) Hidden eye-sores! A built-in sliding drawer for my printer. Notice...all wires are hidden in the back of the drawer, so no one can see them!
3) An organized place for my binders...woo-hoo! :)
4) Two filing drawers
5) And finally, this adorable Florentine trash bin. I found it an antique store and talked the owner down to $35. It's handpainted and made in Florence, Italy...so I thought that was a steal!
That's it for now...next step is to figure out what I'm gonna do for the backsplash. I'm thinking maybe corkboard? Not sure if I want to paint the corkboard or wrap it in fabric. I love the natural look and texture of this sisal board. And I love the idea of adding nailhead trim like this.....so who knows...
Any suggestions are welcome! until then, I gotta get to work!
Have a wonderful weekend!
