When we first moved into this home upon completion of the build last fall, we had the entire home painted the same color. It was easier that way and I truly didn’t know what I wanted for my office. I finally put pieces together and revealed it in THIS POST. It was lovely. But something felt off….I knew what it was. I needed to paint the walls a blush pink. So I hired a painter and switched a few things up. So here is my updated glam office reveal with blush pink walls.
Ok the “before” pics:
Again…it was lovely! But if you know me and have followed me for a while….I LOVE PINK!!!!
Did you know I was actually born on National Pink Day? Yep! June 23rd and I just celebrated my 40th! Ok, moving on….
The “after” pics:
The Blush Pink Paint Color I Chose:
I literally went through 15 samples of all shades of blush pink paint, of all different brands. I went with my very first choice, oddly enough. I found it at Lowe’s and it is called “Romance”, HGTV HOME by Sherwin Williams. The code is: HGSW2067.
BUT!!!! I had it mixed at 50%.
I did this with my other interior paint color throughout my home as well.
Even the ones that my friends swore by just didn’t look right in this office. You have to remember that paint can look good on one wall but then if you put it on other walls in a different part of your home, it can look totally different. It might face the sun differently or the landscaping outside could have colors that reflect on the walls and make the color appearance vary as well. The time of day, the interior decor, the season, etc. There are so many factors. So you just have to try different colors out and look at them in that space at different times of the day before making a decision.
There are 6 simple things I changed and updated for this office reveal.
ONE – Obviously, I painted the interior.
TWO – I swapped the desk and the cabinet and put them at the opposite sides of the room. That way I could see my family coming and going easier and know what the kids are up to.
And if you watched my Instagram stories last month, I took out the middle leg because it didn’t do much but was an eye sore to look at. Instead, I attached 2 small L-brackets to the wall and desk underneath for extra support and to keep it steady while working, typing, writing.
THREE -I added a gallery wall above the cabinet.
It took me FOREVER to figure out what I was doing here. I looked at a ton of art but I have a lovely piece of canvas art on the other side of the room. I already have a mirror. I thought a gallery wall would be fun but I wanted it symmetrical and not too busy and cluttered or busy looking. I also thought about a mood board but worried about the same previous dilemmas.
I included places of travel I love, fashion I love, and other pretty things. The best part is that I can swap them out whenever I want. Just like a mood board. I can frame things that inspire me. I love that it’s symmetrical and clean-looking.
FOUR – I swapped out my blush satin homemade curtains for pleated tab ivory curtains.
FIVE – I replaced the gold distressed mirror for a stunning venetian mirror.
SIX – I sold the infamous blush chair and found a new pretty one!
It physically pained me to sell my blush chair but blush on blush was not going to happen. I was looking for something white and glam and the same style as the last one. Remember….it looked like this…
They were kind enough to send it to me and help me get the look I had been envisioning for this space. This is where my family comes in and sits and talks to me while I work. Many memorable conversations happen right here and I love it.
Don’t you love those legs?! This chair and mirror really took this sitting area to the next level and was even more sophisticated than the last. I love it! Please check out Decor Market for the most fabulous and affordable furniture!
Everything else stayed the same in the office! The IKEA shelves, the office accessories, the art and sconces above my desk, the rug, the chandelier, round end table, and etagere end tables. See my previous office blog post for any other details.
This darling BOW CHAIR has been a huge favorite of many viewers. I sure love it too!
