last week i mentioned how pinterest boards have become my essential first step before undergoing any type of home redecorating project.
i’m in the midst of creating a little home office space for my blog and business (the planner girl provisions subscription box) so that i’m not constantly commandeering our dining table for work. so, i thought i’d share 10 of my favorite home office ideas from the happy as annie office space pinterest board.
iirst thing’s first: make a pinterest board.
i swear. how did we get anything, especially redecorating, done before pinterest? i can’t tell you how many times the first step in a project plan for me has been to create a pinterest board. this goes especially for redecorating a room. before i start packing, donating, painting, or shopping, i create a pinterest board for the new room or project. anything and everything that inspires me or that i wish my (in this case) home office would look like gets pinned to this board. you can’t rush this phase either! i take several days–weeks even!–to do this.
next step: notice patterns and repeats.
when i have a bunch of photos pinned to my virtual mood board, i peruse the photos and take note of similar elements in the photos, colors or patterns that keep coming up, and furniture or decor items i ended up pinning more than once without realizing. this simple process really lets me zero in on the ideal home office i have pictured in my head before i actually start redecorating. only after i do this do i feel ready to tackle ikea or home goods. creating a pinterest board first prevents me from buying a bunch of adorable items that don’t really go together or don’t exactly fit my needs.
last step: shopping!
