It's done! This office space has been a long time in the making, and I'm so ready to share it with you all that I'm busting at the seams! Jordan and I made the design decisions together for this space. He wanted something masculine, monochromatic, and modern (alliteration for the win!) My goal was to make sure everything still felt home-y and inspiring, partly because Jordan also wanted it to be a place where B could come and hang out, just like he did as a kid with his dad. Lots of texture (pillows + rug), plants, photographs of family, and a gorgeous piece of artwork helped soften a lot of the colder vibes this room gave off (Exhibit A: Cement floors - Gorgeous as they may be, make me want to curl up in a fuzzy blanket!)
The piece that completely pulls this room together for us is the custom mountain wood artwork by Werrell Woodworks. Jordan and I got married in Sonoma Valley surrounded by beautiful hills, and we frequently talk about our love of Colorado and mountains. This piece perfectly combined inspiration and warmth, with the cool factor of course. Sam and Cori (the married team that runs the show) went above and beyond for us, and we highly recommend checking their work out for your own home.
Jordan built these shelves himself! We were inspired by the site Love the Room which has tons of DIY videos and inspo with all the building materials you need linked along with the tutorials.
I styled the shelves with a few plants, modern accents, and personal items. He had tons of personal photos from his old desk space, and I turned some of his favorites into black/white prints to frame and layer on the shelves. I used a mix of black frames, wood frames, and thick white mats to add white space. This is my favorite way of incorporating personal photos without making open shelves look too busy.
We reused a lot of home accents from our house in this space, which was both cost-effective and another way to bring home into the office for Jordan. Some of our pillows from home actually look 10x better in this space thanks to the rug we picked out from Target. It all came together really nicely.
B's favorite spot is the couch area. We sometimes bring lunch in here and watch a favorite show while Daddy works, that is if she's not busy greeting everyone in the office!
His windows are seriously the best for natural light. We originally wanted to put a massive cactus in here, but I didn't feel comfortable with a real one being on the floor (toddler parent life!) and the faux ones were either really odd looking, really expensive, or a bad combination of both. I ended up finding a great deal on this faux Sansevieria plant. Right now there's only three living plants in his office, and they're all cacti high up on the shelves.
Seriously, can you even handle the detail on this piece? It looked so pretty in our living room for the two seconds it was stored in there (before Jordan swooped it away for his office!) The office looks even better than how we imagined it, and B and I love to visit every chance we get.
