I made just a few changes to Brandon’s office…
First, a big thank you to everyone for your input (White Molded Chairs)! We chose option #3, and the old broken chair was replaced with IKEA’s Jakob swivel chair. As I had mentioned before, this isn’t a true home office – Brandon only sits there for short periods white internet surfing or playing around with iTunes. We both find the new chair comfortable, though it probably wouldn’t be great as a full-time office chair.
The pendant (which we had already switched out earlier) was replaced with an $8 orange shade. I also switched out the rug. I liked the one that was already in there, but at 3′x5′, it was a little too small. I grabbed the brown and white rug that was in my office (5′x7′), and the size is much better. An orange pillow from west elm (from a few years ago) completed the room.
And now, because it’s fun, I threw together another magazine-style layout with sources:
The house is really coming together now! We’ve only had bits and pieces done until now, but it’s so much more satisfying to see it shape up as a whole. Here’s another view:
I love the dashes of white and orange in all three rooms. Cohesiveness makes me happy. :)
