I’m not playin’.
I hate when bloggers post photos of their homes. In my opinion, it creates an unrealistic expectation for all of us. Everything is always in its place. The kitchen is always sparkling. There is decor for every season.
No matter what, it looks like bloggers live in homes that come straight from Pinterest. Or Better Homes & Garden. Or Pottery Barn.
If you share my sentiment, you’re in luck. I don’t live in one of those perfect homes.
I live in a total war zone.
My brother-in-law walked into our house this weekend and promptly said, “The baby is taking over this place.”
Yes, yes she is.
Why am I posting this
horribly embarrassing photo? Because I want it to be known that not all bloggers or mommas live in the Taj Mahal. And because even though I’m a terrible housekeeper, I do have a redeeming quality (no, it’s not cooking). I’m pretty good at home DIY projects.
The only room Dot has not taken over is the guest room, and that also happens to be the only room I haven’t painted/decorated/touched. Since I now do all of my work (read: blogging) from the couch, I’ve decided to transform the room into my new office. Woot!
And this is my absolutely divine inspiration:
I’m loving the mint/coral/white scheme and the touch of whimsy that these photos convey. I haven’t started (other than picking out paint samples), but I’m pretty excited about the prospect of having my own space.
Plus, when Dot inevitably takes over that room, at least her mint Bumbo will match perfectly. 🙂
I’m curious – what does your work space look like? What, in your office, is something you couldn’t live without? I need more ideas!
Don’t worry. I’ll post updates as soon as I start painting!
