A Vintage-Inspired Home Office

My husband and I have a dream, and a very real goal, to buy a house that we can retire in. On my list of things I'd love for the house to include is an extra bedroom that I could turn into a beautiful home office. I envision a very Instagram-worthy desk, a place to store all of the PR samples I get, and some pretty tufted accent chairs: where I can enjoy coffee breaks with my husband, who luckily also works from home.

When I get inspiration from vintage home offices on the web, I'm most attracted to spaces with a touch of modern glam. My husband and I both like transitional decor - old meets new. For example, I'd pair a modern mirrored desk with one of these antique desk chairs. Seating isn't often the focal point of an office, but why shouldn't it be?

Mediterranean Blue

Indigo Ceramic Vases

Everyone has seen pictures of the beautiful hillside homes and churches in Greece that are made of white plaster accented with that beautiful Mediterranean blue, also referred to as Monaco Blue.

How to Decorate with Mediterranean Blue
  1. Mediterranean blue looks great with crisp with. If you have white apartment walls, dress them up with blue curtains or a blue painting.
  2. Incorporate Meditteranean blue in your patio decor with blue outdoor pillows.
  3. In addition to white, Mediterranean Blue looks great with grey or silver. If you add blue as the main color scheme in a room, try to add in a lot of polished silver accessories.
  4. It's a vibrant shade to add in coastal decor. Swap out dark navy nautical decor for accessories in Mediterranean blue. Try looking for glass bottles in this cobalt shade of blue.
  5. If you want to mix Monaco blue with browns, use light brown natural elements like nautical ropes, linen, or jute. 
  6. This color can look great in a traditional setting with floral prints, but it really looks great with global prints as well. Think Ikat and Morroccan Lattice
