When I last shared photos of my home office in 2009, it looked like this:
Jen was working at my house three days a week, and all sarah + abraham paper goods (note cards, notepads, stickers, art prints, etc.) were being printed and shipped from my house. I had lots of Ikea furniture (including the VARDE kitchen island in the photo on the left), curtains from Target, basic office chairs, and lots of wall shelves, which were all perfectly functional items, but not very pretty.
Over the last couple of years I’ve made some big changes, and today I’m so happy with how my new cozy home office has come together:
If you’re wondering where all the supplies went, they’re mostly all in Jen’s own home office now where she does most of the order fulfillment for sarah + abraham.
As for the furniture, I had my eye on the Pottery Barn Bedford office furniture collection for a long time. When I was finally ready to buy it, I had a Pottery Barn design consultant come over to help me plan the space, and she suggested the Keira rug, Peyton drapes, and rattan desk chairs. I don’t think I would have picked out those items myself, but I love how it all came together.
I replaced the Ikea kitchen island with the Kavari media-storage console from Crate & Barrel. It only holds about half as much stuff, but I love the warmth of the color.
I’m especially proud of my little gallery of frames. I’ve always admired the frame galleries that John & Sherry of Young House Love have created in their houses. Mine is on a much smaller scale, but I’m so happy with how it turned out. It includes art by Heather Ross, Rifle Paper Co., June Craft, Decoylab, and White Nest.
