The Turquoise Office

Home Sweet Home

If you follow me on Instagram I gave you a hint of what I was up to a couple weekends a go. Yes, the Boy let me paint my home office Turquoise, and I love it. The office definitely needed some color with its white walls and all my white IKEA office furniture. And p.s. I was pretty proud of my IKEA furniture purchases. Not only was it easily the best place to get the most bang for my buck, but my future MIL and I were able to put all the furniture together ourselves!


A little bit of of elbow grease and this is what you get...


Boom Turquoise Office. I decided to go with a color from Lowe's called Aqua Chifron


My cork board wall. You can find these cork board squares at most WalMarts and Hobby Lobby. Definitely recommend nailing them up, the double sided tape that comes with them never seems to work. 


My wall of things I love. The painting was done by a dear friend of mine. Super talented. The two cow pictures are Signature (the black one) and Fantasy and Harmony (the cow and calf), these are my all time favorite cows. And then a picture of my sister and I, and the Boy and I.


I was able to save some money by keeping the blinds and curtains that were already in the room. 


My little seating area. This couch was previously downstairs in our house, but it no longer fit when I moved all my stuff in. The meshing of two peoples things is always a fun project. So that is my office. Feel free to stop by anytime. We can talk blogging, agvocacy, Sure Champ and of course turquoise!

  9. Very pretty! We love blue, too. Our living areas (living room, dining room, hallways, are all a very pale blue with white columns). Your turquoise is gorgeous for your office and perfect with your white furniture. Nice! While we were out of town for ten weeks recently we took the plunge and had our bedroom and sitting room painted a very, very pale pink. We already have deep red drapes, carpet, and fireplace. We were very pleased with the pink result - it feels very warm in here without too much overpowering PINK!

  11. Thanks everyoneI I love the glass top on the desk because I can place inspiration things below and see them while I am working. The rug is a sheepskin rug that I brought back with me from Australia.
