my spare bedroom looked a complete mess. the closet was unorganized, random papers were everywhere, and i hated even stepping into the space. i like organization so it was driving me crazy that the room wasn’t together months after moving into our new place.
we finally gave the space a makeover, and i couldn’t be happier.
how to achieve the perfect spare bedroom/home office:
decide on your look and go for it: since i love thrifting and creative silhouettes, our entire home is the perfect mix of vintage and modern. the desk chair from at home has the perfect vintage look and inspired the spare bedroom’s design.
center your favorite items. my partner is a musician, so a keyboard, turn table and drum pad have front row seats in our decor. instead of tucking items that speak to your heart in a closet, find cool ways to feature them by using shelves or bookcases.
don’t be afraid to mix and match. we collected the furniture in the bedroom and didn’t stress buying all new pieces. the desk is from target and the dresser was a gift from our neighbors when we moved in. they add character, and we’re totally cool with the mash up.
do-dads are a must. i love a good table ornament, candle or plant because they give rooms flavor. the “everyday i’m hustlin’ banner” and gold hexagonal accessory from at home are my new favorite finds.
remaking this room was part of my 21 day happiness project, and i couldn’t be happier with the results. it’s the perfect place to work and host guests.
