    Home Office Tour

    I can’t believe it. I am finally done! My home office is officially complete after a year of putting it together. I think the biggest thing for me was making sure to keep true to my own unique style by incorporating pieces that have personal meaning so it inspires me. I love all the bright colors, pops of gold and yellow, and all my inspirational wall art. My office is where I spend most of my time creating, writing, and brain storming for my blog. It is also multi functional as a dressing room, with a vanity desk separate from my working desk, so I have space and room to play around with my make up, as well as make YouTube videos. It is the one place in the house that the boys are not allowed in. It’s my Girl Cave. I have to give a special shout out to my wonderful husband who helped make my vision came to life. Half of these pieces were either constructed, painted or put together by him. So I hope you enjoyed this home office tour, I’ve linked as much as I can from my office below.
