This week, I’m eager to continue the tour and share my office uplevel with you. If you remember, from a blog post at the beginning of this year, moving my desk FIVE FEET into the middle of my office is what precipitated our Big Move. Never underestimate the power of moving the furniture!
Here’s my new office:
The Desk--One simple piece of glass, I’m sitting here right now! A cactus from my bonus daughter, Tammy (cuz she knows I can’t keep plants alive--this one from Christmas, so far, so good!) and SPACE. Nothing to distract me from whatever it is I’m working on.
Files in one drawer behind me, and two drawers for office supplies. It has taken many renditions of editing and refining to get to this balanced place of enough/not too much.
The Red Sofa--Folds out into a double bed for guests--daughter and baby and hubby arriving on Wednesday(!). Power art by artist Marko Spalatin over the sofa, and luscious relationship art by Lauren Paradise on the wall behind me (The office is in the Feng Shui “relationship corner” of our home).
The Paint--Well, WOW! The chocolate color on the walls contrasted by the cobalt color on the ceiling--what’s not to love?
The Chandelier--A total Estate Sale “find” with a bazillion glimmery crystals. There is a constant Fourth of July fireworks going on with this gorgeous thing overhead.
Long story, short...I get tons of work done in this office, it totally supports me with the streamlined, beautiful vibe.
And, I find I need less and less paper these days, how about you?
If you need or want assistance getting your office in shape, taking a step toward going paperless, or help sorting out your technology clutter, hit reply to this email, Kelly (amazing assistant) and I are standing by! We loooooooove working on offices!!!
Lots of love,
”Before Jane, there didn’t seem like there was any place to hang out at our house, so all my kids just stayed in their rooms. After Jane came and redesigned our living room with beautiful colors, lighting and furniture, my kids started to come out of their rooms! We now have a beautiful place to gather and my 3 teenagers are actually talking not only to John and I, but to each other! :) Thanks Jane!“
