The Upstairs Office

Now that all the rooms are framed out, we are starting to get a sense for the size and space.  I am starting to think more about what furniture we will need in each room and how to lay it out.  I love West Elm, and I recently discovered their Room Planner and it’s my new favorite thing.

With the Room Planner I created the layout for the office below.  Since we only have three bedrooms (and one of them is our master) we want this room to be somewhat of a flex space that can be used as an office or a guest room in case we have a few people staying with us at one time.  office layout

I think we will paint the walls a light grey which will look nice with the wood trim, shutters, and walnut floor.

Originally we were going to do a wall of built in shelves but ultimately we have decided its better to buy some key furniture pieces which will allow the room to be easily changed up/rearranged in the future.  This room doesn’t have a closet so I think adding an armoire makes a lot of sense.  The over sized chair with be a pull out twin bed.

I think it all has a fun Mad Men vibe!  Cheers, Hayley
