We have a little before and after for you guys, because we know you love a good before and after! This is one of those spaces that could easily be wasted, because you just don’t know what to do with it. And that is the perfect situation to ask us for a little help! It’s a small upstairs landing outside of their little boys room. We knew it needed to be kid friendly, but a space that grown-ups could enjoy as well! We ran with the idea of the books staying, and just stepped it up a notch to turn it into in a little office.
We originally thought we would remove the cubical storage, but we love to use what you guys already have!! And we really needed the surface and storage. So all we did here was organize the books by color, to create a cute rainbow! Then added some fun kid-friendly decor on top.
This is a pretty narrow space, but it needed dimension. Photo ledges are perfect for this. They’re good for hallways, small rooms, above a couch. We love them! We had them send us some of their favorite photos, and we printed them in classic black and white, in the correct sizes! Such an easy statement and personal touch.
And then we have this awesome rustic/industrial desk. The dark contrasts so good with the light walls, making it really pop. We added this canvas map, that is education for kids, and just really cool. It’s all details from here. A desk lamp and ALWAYS greenery. Plants and stems add such life into your home. Personally, I’m loving real plants in my home, but they make amazing fake plants now too, and you don’t have to remember to water them ;)
And that’s it! A really quick and simple update that adds so much value to the home.
Your home is so important, it should inspire you, motivate you, and welcome you at the end of the day. If your home doesn’t do this for you, we can help you! We truly care about your home and want to create a space that you love, any style, any budget!
Thanks for reading, friends!
