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.

A Vintage Holiday Home Tour


I've got a treat for you guys today! It's a Christmas tour that is definitely a feast for the eyes. When I started my holiday page on Instagram this season, I happened upon quite a few interior design pages I wasn't yet following with my KCL Instagram. One of which caught my eye with beautiful event design. As we began to near the Christmas season, I noticed this design page posting more and more Christmas decor at various businesses. Talk about a dream job...being able to decorate so many different spaces for the holidays, with many different themes and colors!

As you can imagine, the designer at Decoratively Speaking Events is bound to have beautiful Christmas decor at home as well. From the fun vintage welcome, to the beautiful formal dining room, to the plaid Mackenzie-Childs Breakfast Room; you are sure to find some festive holiday inspo. Grab a cup of coffee (or hot cocoa) and enjoy!



"When it comes to my own home, the sky is the limit!!"



"I love cozy spaces and this area in my house is no exception. This is in my family room where there, decor is more vintage, using many decor items reminiscent of the 50s, 60s and very early 70s. The color scheme is very traditional red, green, and white." 


"I couldn’t decorate without adding a little bit of Paris decor into the mix!! This little snowman heading to a Christmas in Paris was handmade for me and I love it!"




"This is in my breakfast room where the decor is more vintage and Mackenzie Childs using many decor items reminiscent of the French country look." 




  "I love the richness of the colors burgundy, red, gold and ivory."


"I absolutely love this beautiful family heirloom that was my grandparents,
and it’s about 60 years old!"
