We finally decided on making it a nice office for Eric. I really liked what was done in this post so that was a little inspiration.
The before (it was painted before we moved in but I don't have a before picture with it painted so just imagine it)
The after. I do love the 2 shades of brown/tan separated by the chair rail.
We wanted a really nice desk since this is the first room you see when you enter our front door. We were able to reuse the bookshelves to store all of Eric's books and my cookbooks as well as some decor.
YOUR HELP NEEDED PLEASE :)
I hesitated to even post about this since it is not complete but I am hoping to get some ideas. We need something to go on this big wall. It is really the first thing you see when you come in the front door too so I want it to be awesome. We have thought about a collection of maps, collection of photography, 1 big photo... what do you think? I don't want to do plates since I am going to do that somewhere else.
What about curtains? Should we do them? If yes, go with white? Or maybe a shade/pattern of blue that ties nicely with the bright green paint in the kitchen?
The chandelier. Is it okay or is it too formal and we should do track lighting or something similar like in this post.
Thanks in advance for your awesome advice :)
