the office.

Slowly, but surely we are getting around to each room as we continue to make the house our home. A couple weekends ago, I finally got to the office. The office has kind of been the holding pen for items that we were just not sure where to put, too busy to deal with, or just too stubborn to get rid of. To be fair, a good amount of this was my stuff. So, this project made Mere very happy. Other than the work involved organizing the room, the only other task was painting. For this room, we chose Sherwin-Williams “Serious Grey” in a semi-gloss, which definitely made the room a bit more masculine. This is perfect since Mere has her own "girly room" and now me and the bikes have this room! On another note, Bella wanted to make an appearance, since this is her favorite chair in the house. We got the Vaughn Chair in wool at Crate and Barrel, and it might have been the first totally awesome decision as a married couple. It is so comfortable!!! One of my pieces from Houston street artist "Dual" finally found its place on a wall. *Disclaimer- since these pictures were taken at night it was hard to get a great idea of the actual wall color. The shot with the bikes is probably the best representation.

Thanks for the comment! The bike rack is a must, luckily for Mere I have two less bikes now. The side table and glasses were my Grandparents, and I am so glad to finally have a spot for these items.
