Hi y'all! Glad you are here!
So if you follow me on Instagram you've probably seen little snippets here and there of my lovely and oh so girly home office. I thought today I'd give you an official introduction. Meet the One Sweet Day in May office or #onesweetoffice. My husband and I call it my girl cave or my maxi pad haha mostly because he has his very own "man cave." Over the past couple months though it's become the One Sweet office. Pretty perfect, right?
I'm giving you a kind of behind the scenes tour today because One Sweet Day in May is getting an official Rebrand starting in March and launching in...any guesses?? in MAY! YAY! Beginning in March I will be starting a Rebranding series here on the blog so you can journey through it with me. The One Sweet office is going to be going through somewhat of a makeover in the next couple months to become a huge part of my brand, not that my office doesn't reflect me now, but it's going to be transformed into total Michelle goodness. Eeeep! I was thinking of doing this blog post so I'll be able to look back on the beginnings of One Sweet office. I may or may not be a crazy sentimental person haha. Stay tuned, friends!
This is where I spend a lot of my days. Where I make phone calls, write and return emails, and play Taylor Swift non-stop. A.k.a. The best place in the whole house.
My office is actually a little nook right off of our master bedroom. I didn't want to take up an entire room in the house for myself. I'd rather have a few guestrooms haha. There is a great big window and streams in the best light and when it snows I have the best view in the whole house. While sitting in here I overlook the front of our house so I can see when Chris gets home or stalk the mailman haha. It started with me just needing a desk. I hadn't really had one since High School and I didn't want to break the bank. I ended up finding the perfect one at Overstock.com. It was like Christmas morning when it arrived.
It's just the right size and the most perfect glossy white. Pretty much my dream desk.
So here I had my little white desk. It was so lonely there all by itself. I'd always loved the idea of having a sitting area in an office, so I thought a little loveseat might be the best addition. It was right around my birthday and Chris ordered it for me as my gift. It is now known as my "birthday couch" Best gift ever! It's from Target, gosh that store has everything.
Isn't it the cutest. It's where I sit and have my afternoon coffee break and where the dogs hang out during the day.
The coffee table is an old piece that Chris had in our last house. I'm pretty sure it's a hand me down from his parents. It used to be a dark espresso color, but I painted it white. Yeah, I can be a pretty good little crafter haha. Love that little table. The lucite nesting tables are also from Overstock. It's a smaller space and I wanted pieces that would be airy and wouldn't look like they took up space. Boom. Lucite ghost tables. Thank you furniture Gods!
The pink candle holders are from Michael's. Lordy I always get into trouble at that store. I haven't finished reading The Glitter Plan yet, but so far I love it. Those Juicy Couture ladies rock! Such an inspiring book!
If you don't know yet, one of my weaknesses is throw pillows. I just love them! You'll see them change quite often round here. They'll switch rooms occasionally too. Such a simple and usually inexpensive room update. The one with my name on it is from an Etsy shop called Fancy it pretty and the Love life one is Pottery Barn.
Right now on my coffee table you'll find the Southern Weddings Wedding Planner. Guys, if I could have dreamed up the most perfect planner, this would be it. It's seriously amazing. That little print there is from Ashley Proffitt and it was a part of the Creative at Heart Conference Swag. It needs a frame stat.
Speaking of frames...I love being surrounded by motivating and pretty wall art. I've hung a few of my favorites up. They are from a few different places. Feel free to e-mail me of you'd like more info. My favorite one is the middle one. Wagon Wheel by Old Crow Medicine Show is My husband and my song and I had the lovely Kaitlin Parisho Designs hand letter it for me.
I of course had to hang up a wedding photo too.
And a little snap of my desk space. That candle is from Target (where else?) and smells amazing.
Levi says hi!
So here it is. A little look at where the magic of One Sweet Day in May begins. I have big dreams for this little space of mine. And I apologize for the Iphone pics...but BIG news, it's actually getting photographed professionally in April as a part of my rebrand. Yay! And I wanted you to see it at its very beginnings. So what's in store for the One Sweet Office? I'm thinking a rug, curtains, an organization system, an actual gallery wall, and plenty of girly Kate Spade inspired things. Oh, this is going to be fun.
Another reason why I'm sharing this with you? Well, we just moved into this house last April and with the wedding 5 months ago and Chris switching careers, finances have been a little tight. We haven't really done much with the house decorating and so a part of this blog is to take you on a little decorating journey with me through every room in our house. They'll be plenty of DIYs and before and afters. So excited y'all!
Hope you enjoyed the mini tour! Talk to you later!
