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? We spend all day sitting in it, after all.


My husband and I take frequent breaks throughout the day, with a coffee break here and there and a lunch hour during which we watch one of our favorite shows togeth…

Snapshots from the Week


Happy October! I'd say I'm definitely on the mend finally...despite that as soon as my back started to get better, I came down with the cold from hell. But I am lucky to be with a man who is very caring and helpful; it makes those challenging times so much easier. I still had to take a few more days off last week, but I am doing much better at last.

I made it to the store with my fiance this week, and that in itself was a small victory for me considering how bad my back had gotten. Pictured above are some cute little pumpkins I saw at Walmart. It makes me want to get a sharpie and brush up on my handwriting skills.


We also saw that they had put up Christmas trees and a few Christmas decorations at Walmart. When Ken pointed out the trees, I let out my rather embarrassing fan-girl scream. It involved an "eeeek!" combined with some clapping and jumping up and down.



 After our date last weekend, we saw more holiday decor at Michael's. We both loved this row of "Ravenshead Manor" brand Halloween decor.



For the date we went to Yokozuna downtown Tulsa. It was my first time there, and Ken was right...he knew I'd like the atmosphere, and of course I liked the food. Well, I have to say that I wound up not liking the particular sushi I ordered, because the flavor combo just wasn't what I was expecting. But the gentleman that he is, and because he luckily liked how mine tasted, he traded with me. The El Guapo Roll (pictured above) was amazing!



My just-because flowers this week was a single wooden rose. It was such a nice surprise. I'm always drying and preserving the petals from the roses he buys me (and sometimes accidentally burning them by forgetting that they're in the oven when I preheat it to make dinner) and this one will stay as beautiful as it now, for a very long time.


If you saw my last wedding blog, I gave Wedding Paper Divas a good review, though I still was unsure of the final product. But we received them in the mail this past Friday.:) It all turned out so beautiful. I can't wait to put them all together, ready to mail. I'll hopefully get a nice flatlay done this Wednesday for the wedding blog this week.

That same day we went out for National Coffee Day. I know I've met the man for me when National Coffee Day has become a romantic holiday for us. You can read more about that on the Tulsa Blog. We also thoroughly enjoyed a nice Saturday for Art in the Square at Utica. I'm saving those pics for the next post.

I hope you had a relaxing weekend and that your week is off to a great start! :)
