The Office

A few weeks ago I started a new little project about my yellow house and all the rooms inside. I started with the kitchen, and today I'm going to give you all a little peak into my office.

Now, it may not seem as if the office is a big part of the house, but since it will {hopefully} be where I spend my days writing, it's important that its a comfortable and inspiring place.

I love white and pale color palettes for the yellow house, and that goes for my office. Since it is the one place in the house, however, that's my place, I think I need some pops of pink.

Here is what I'm envisioning for my future office:
 
 It needs lots of built-in storage...

And a nice white desk...

  I would absolutely love a walk-in library like this...
 
But more than anything, it needs to be a place for me to relax. It would also have a beautiful white couch...

In my perfect office, it would have big doors like these... 

Or maybe French doors like these...

But what kind of doors it has doesn't really matter, as long as it opens onto my own private garden...

I would love a white fireplace, to keep warm during the chilly nights on California's coast...

And a photo and art wall like this one...

I would love to have this print to put up on above wall...

 My desk would obviously need a pretty calendar to keep track of the days...

 And I can't help but think how fun it would be to have a pretty old phone somewhere in there too...

I'm now off to daydream about my future bedroom...

Much love,
