I thought it might be fun to share the home for At Home. This is the office where (sometimes) I work. My husband also offices in the suite, and we share a conference room.
I do want to say a big thank you to Gonzalo Mejia and Brittany Fisher. Gonzalo was our contractor who saw our vision and could figure out my drawings. And Brittany for styling the reception area, conference room, and hanging all the wallhangings. She did a fabulous job, as usual.
I actually styled my office hutch. It used to be a stained built-in buffet in my house (which my parents built in the ’80s). During the great reno of 2018, it was removed and replaced with a shallower built-in buffet. With a bit of paint, and cutting it down a smidge, it became the perfect hutch for my office. It hides lots of useless things that aren’t pretty in the cabinet below and shows off lots of pretty things above. Best of all, I didn’t have to buy anything to go inside! The milk glass pieces were all in a pile to be donated or sold at a garage sale.
The photo above was part of my inspiration for the colors I used in my office. I love the photo! I did find a very similar desk on 1stdibs.com AFTER I had purchased the barley twist. But, I love barley twist, so it all worked out fine! And I met a really nice couple that was from Sulphur Springs, so it was meant to be.
The reception area was inspired by Mike’s love of blue and boats as well as the green velvet chair that I purchased at a consignment shop in Dallas.
Then I found a page in a Grandinroad catalog that brought it all together with the rug, green sofa table, plaid throw, and green throw pillow. I added in their navy storage stools (which can double as a coffee table, if needed). Brittany brought in the blue and white porcelain, and I love it!
The boat artwork in the room all came from eBay! I like the way it all mixes together and just works.
In the conference room, Brittany hung the black and white Sulphur Springs and Hopkins County artwork that I had. I really like the monochromatic look!
I hope you like it too!
P.S. – For those of you who are trying to pay your speeding tickets…this is not the place. Even if the ticket says to pay it here, you have to go to City Hall (the old post office turned library turned city hall) at 125 S. Davis. My husband keeps threatening to accept your payment!
P.P.S. – I had the suite perfectly clean for my husband to host the Lone Star Summit for his work team for a couple of days. Then I had to get all my files out of my old office, so it got junked up. That is why you really don’t get to see all of the conference room. A
few several boxes are currently piled in the corner of the room waiting to be scanned!
P.P.P.S. – I guess I am a sucker for punishment. As I was looking for before photos of the office (there were none), I realized I have been building or renovating something since 2008. But I like it!!!
