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…

Editor's Picks: Cozy Ornaments


Whether you're the type of person who is a firm believer in putting the tree up after Thanksgiving, or the kind who has it up weeks before; it's a great time to start shopping around for ornaments. All of the shops have their lovely displays out for the holidays. We're definitely getting our tree up soon!

Does your family use the same year after year, or do you like to switch it up by theme? Or perhaps you like to add a few new ones each year. Personally I've done all of the above. But this year, we're blended, celebrating our first Christmas as a family. Last year was our first Christmas together, but this year, it's the first one all together in the same home, so we plan to add on several new things and look forward to making new memories each year going forward.

Plaid Sparkle Ball Ornament


Plaid Sparkle Ball Ornament

This past weekend we bought a few new ones from Pottery Barn, including this Christmas sweater ornament and a pretty paid ones pictured above. I also have several clear ball ornaments that I'm going to fill with the rose petals I saved from the bouquet he gave me on our second date.💓🌝 Pictured: Pottery Barn Fair Isle Christmas Sweater Ornament  //  Pottery Barn Plaid Sparkle Ball Ornament

Ken and I both seem to gravitate towards a good mix of traditional and modern when it comes to Christmas decor. We both like some sparkle, we both like plaid, and we both like traditional as well as fun new pieces. Pottery Barn and Target tend to have holiday decorations that we both love, and of course there are plenty of these items on Amazon as well.
