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…

KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend!! Are you guys as excited for Halloween as I am? Though I may be moreso excited about this weekend leading up to it. We're going to settle in and enjoy some shows with the kids. Ken and I have already been enjoying some classic horror movies and the new LORE anthology on Amazon. If you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend you watch LORE this weekend! And of course Stranger Things 2 tonight! But first, we have to make it through the work day, which is a lot easier if you just take a break, grab a warm cup of coffee, and do some online shopping, right? 😉 I've picked out some cozy, rustic items for you to browse this weekend. Enjoy!

Pictured above is a gorgeous Pumpkin Spice Cozy Infinity Scarf by Tiny Kea Co. We're getting a cold front this weekend in Texas, so I may need to use my coat finally. I love to top of my peacoat with a great plaid scarf! I really like the orange and brown colors in the scarf pictured above. Though I really love a classic black and red buffalo check plaid like this one too.

This next shop is perfect if you need to do a little sprucing up this holiday season. If you plan to have overnight guests, for example, this Be Our Guest Wooden Sign by Farmhouse Reverie would be perfect in a guest bathroom or guest bedroom. You can also use this cute coffee sign to create a little coffee bar for guests!

Another great way to spruce up a guest space for the holidays is with a soft throw blanket and some new pillows. I love the plaid prints at Varsha Co. There are so many great plaid prints in shades of red and blue that would fit in well with holiday decor, but would look great year round as well. My favorites are the Tartan Snowy Cushion and the Tartan Scarlet Cushion.

You'll also find some beautiful table runners at Varsha Co., so you can spruce up that dining table as well! A table runner is the perfect base for a few festive candles and a holiday centerpiece.

If you're looking for a quick update that will have a big impact, display these Rustic Cotton Stems by Door and Decor. For holiday decor this year, cotton is a huge trend, and I really love it! It looks great with both modern or rustic designs. It looks beautiful mixed with fall florals or burlap, but looks so good on its own too. I'm really loving these cotton wreaths too! What do you thing of the cotton trend?

My most favorite way too add a touch of warmth and cozy during the holidays is with a scented candle. It's a very welcome addition to a guest bedroom or guest bathroom as well. The hand-crafted candles by Crafty Dogwood come in so many festive and inviting scents. It's pretty tough to narrow it down to just one favorite, but I think I'd go with the Cinnamon Chai. Though it's a close tie with scents like Pumpkin Spice and Cranberry Rose.

Of course, the best thing for a guest bath is some unique hand-made soap. Crafty Dogwood has you covered there too, with scents like apple cider and Fraser fir. Stock up between now and October 31st to get FREE shipping on orders over $20!

And very soon, we'll be all about Christmas as soon as the clock strikes midnight on November 1st, right? I do like to incorporate harvest decor up to Thanksgiving, but I am very much looking forward to Christmas decorations too.

I absolutely adore these Antique Hourglass Coil Springs by UB Designer Furnishings. Styled with the little pieces of evergreen branches, they make for the perfect vintage Christmas display! There are also some antique bed springs in the shop that make the cutest little Christmas trees when paired with holiday florals. Check out UB Designer Furnishings for one of a kind vintage and antique pieces. You'll find small home accessories, as well as furniture. My other top pick from this shop is the Large Vintage Table Organizer. Which piece is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below!
