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


Hey guys! I hope you had a great weekend. Ken and I caught up on some much-needed relaxing time, as he had to work all weekend the week before. We started the weekend early with Friday off, hence I'm a little behind on this post, so it'll be snapshots from over a week actually.

 
The weekend before last, my baby turned 9 years old. Between our three girls, Kait is the youngest. Before we know it, they'll all be teens!







On Friday we hunted down some pretty blossoms to take some pictures, and we picked out some new glasses for Ken. Oh, I can't wait until he gets them. They look so good on him. We ran a few more errands and did a bit of fun shopping too. I got some great stuff with a Victoria's Secret gift card Ken had given me on Valentine's Day. They currently have some very cute clutches and purses, by the way, as well as a big sale on their fragrances.

For our date, we took another hotel night away from home. It's always good to get away for the evening, (even despite that I was coming down with some kind of virus). I'll post a hotel review separately. The date started in the early afternoon when Ken took me by Chandler Park. I'd never been there before (and I thought we were just heading to the hotel). It was fun to explore and enjoy the fresh air...and we like to kiss in parks haha:)

We saw Get Out in theaters. It was cuuurazy but very good. So many good twists! The next morning we had some brunch at IHOP before heading home. Tulsa readers, FYI - the IHOP at 71st and 169, the wait staff could use some serious improvement.

We thoroughly enjoyed The Oscars, though we were rooting for La La Land. Quite a bit of a hiccup at the end, which I'm sure you're now seen all over social media. Overall though it was an amazing show with some hilarious jokes and very real truths. And of course some gorgeous dresses.

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend and have a great week!!

  1. Those blossoms are a dazzling sight! Here we are at or below the freezing mark, with a good deal of snow still on the ground. We won't see blossoms until May.
