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.

Pic of the Week: On the Battlefields at Gettysburg

 

This year, Gettysburg celebrates the 150th anniversary. Through 4th of July weekend and the week after, many volunteers are participating in battle reenactments as well as recreating living exhibits of what every aspect of life was like in Gettysburg during the Civil War. I've been to Gettysburg, PA many times. I've seen the battlefields, monuments, Soldier's National Cemetery, and the Visitor's Center Museum. Each time I go, I notice a new detail - a statue I didn't notice before or a fence I never quite appreciated. The last time I went, I couldn't stop staring at the criss-crossed rail fencing that outlines the old battlefields where the Civil War played out in Gettysburg. These simple wooden fences hold so much meaning, as they literally outline history. You can see more of my Gettysburg travel photos here.

  2. I had the opportunity to visit a small battlefied in Virginia. It just had an eerie sad feeling there. I've always wanted to see Gettysburg.

    1. They do have an eerie feel, especially the Soldier's National Cemetery in Gettysburg.
