Welcome to my new office space everyone! Because it’s so rainy and grey in Portland, I wanted this space to bright, fun, and colorful. And perhaps I’m biased, and totally in love with that blue wall, but I think I succeeded. I sure do hope you like after shots, (you can see the befores here) because boy did I take a lot!
I’ll be sharing all my tips for hanging a gallery wall tomorrow, but lets just say all the effort was worth it. And why yes, that is a spray paint can piñata you see– my friend Ashley made it and I LOVE it.
For the walls, I used Behr’s Marquee line (which I highly recommend). The white was Cameo White and the blue accent was Celebration Blue. Even if you can’t paint as a renter, one of the better changes I made was swapping out the outdated “boob” light pendant for one that was a little more modern and clean. Not only did it give me better light, but it changed the overall vibe of the space. Plus when I move, I can swap it out and take it with me.
This bookcase was the perfect fit for the little wall nook. Because the sides are open, it doesn’t block the light from the window or feel intrusive. Plus, it’s the perfect place to display some of my completed crafts. You might remember these tutorials: photo holders, wooden sign, ombre cloche, and brush stroke planter!
