One room that we did not have in our old house, that we are very happy to have now, is a small office. While neither Andrew nor I are working from home right now, a New England winter amidst a pandemic means we do occasionally WFH. Beyond that, it’s just nice to have a space for the printer, files, household paperwork and other stuff we never had a place for before. Ballard Designs offered to partner up with me on outfitting the space when they launched their Hutton Home Office Collection, which is pretty darn amazing. You can choose between natural rattan or antique mirror panels and with various modular pieces, you can create a unique layout for your exact space and needs, which is exactly what I did! We have a nice long desk, and then filing cabinets with a hutch above that’ll hold the printer! It’s nice and tall too, so it really fills the space perfectly. I also am putting a gorgeous chaise in here, because I envision myself sneaking away to this spot to read a magazine and have coffee… someday, maybe when the kids are older :)

Here is the room painted with the new light installed from Circa.
Here is what it was like when we bought the house – this built in was eating up so much space and made the room feel WAY smaller.
I’m just waiting on the chaise and the custom items for the space and then I’ll be able to share with you the final product!
