Yes, I know I’ve been lagging behind on the House Tour Part 2 (House Tour Part 1 here) and while I wish I could say it’s because the nursery isn’t done, that excuse is out the window. The truth is, the office (or our loft space) isn’t done yet. There are still a few tweaks I’d like to make to our bedroom as well, but fear not. I know I have a baby due any day now but what kind of Type A personality would I be if I didn’t tackle a project or two at the same time? Thankfully both spaces are roughly 80% done, so it shouldn’t take much work. The two images above are my inspirations for our loft area. Sometimes you have to find motivation with what you already have. The Expedit desk from Ikea is what I have to work with, ghastly with it’s overwhelmingly black coat of paint, makes for a tough situation when you are addicted to the light and bright of the contemporary trends these days. But I am good at “making it work” as Tim Gun would say and actually like the b&w with pops of color that these pictures convey.
I’m giving myself a month tops to get it done. Wish me luck.
