In just a few short months, well actually 5 (give or take a few days), I'll be handing over the keys of my home office to our second child who will at that point be moving into his or her new nursery. Given that we really don't want to move out of our quaint (but SUPER tiny) 3 bedroom cottage at this point in our lives, I've been trying to be creative about where in our home my next home office will land.
The one room in our house that is really central to everything else is our dining room. Ironically, it's the one room in the house that I've spent the least amount of time decorating. The only member of the house that has made a mark on the room is Stella, and that's only because that's where I've set up her little craft table and chairs.
I was on the phone earlier today with a friend who asked me if I knew where she could find a new dining room table and some eclectic chairs when it hit me... the dining room could be my new home office! I'd been pinning dining room decor ideas on Pinterest for months but it never occurred to me how much the dining rooms I love also look like they could double as chic office settings. Or maybe I'd just never viewed them from that perspective (see several of my favorite looks above). Now all I can think about is how much fun i'm going to have decorating not one but two rooms in the upcoming months. Stay tuned for the 'real-life' photos!
