Office | In the Bedroom

Hey everyone hope you had a great weekend! We actually had a slight front come through giving us some gorgeous weather! Today I’m excited to show you all our little office in the bedroom. Remember I had mentioned this before last year and how we needed one and even wrote a post on pretty ways to have a desk in your bedroom. I am all for utilizing every inch of your home for whatever purpose you need it to serve. And since many homes don’t have a dedicated office room or an extra room to spare, it’s completely fine to make a little nook in your bedroom, which is exactly what I did.

I just love it! And without it looking too “officy” I added a few pretty accessories on that shelf to display. Recognize that desk and shelf? Yes, those are the ones that I picked up while antique shopping a few weeks ago. I still haven’t decided on a paint color for the desk yet or if I’m even going to paint it. I like the wood and not every piece of furniture you have needs to painted (or spray painted). :) Plus, we already have a lot going on in the room with our navy and coral color scheme with the navy accent wall, so I just want to live with the wood for a little while and not add too much color on this side of the room. Ya feel me?

I want to add that yes, we still do have our home office where the dining room used to be, but it’s ended up being that we need 2 good work spaces with both of us working from home a lot of the time.

For the accessories on the shelf (it’s actually kind of another fake mantel, yay!) I shopped the house for all of them and didn’t buy a thing. The gold frames were garage sale items and everything else I’ve had for quite a while. That starburst mirror I got at Michael’s a few years back around Christmas.

That framed “art” is just a piece of pretty cardstock paper. :)

I did buy a little side table at Target because we needed one. And it hides all of the cords which you can’t see. ;)

Those curtains are from Anthropologie (had them when I redid our master again) but not sure if they still have them.

Here are a few more shots for you. I stole that chair from the little kitchen built-in desk for the time being until I can find the right one to put in our room.

Office in the Bedroom |

And that’s our little home office in the bedroom! What do you think? It has been SO handy to have in here and we both really enjoy it. And I still didn’t know what to do on that side of the room when I redid it earlier this year (because we had the pack in play in there for a changing table until recently), so this little desk and shelf and all of the accessories just kind of fell into place. Love when that happens.

Do you need something like this in your room too? I’ll confess my husband has pretty much taken it over but I still try and claim it on occasion. ;)

P.S.-I’m happy to say I finally have my project gallery pages up and running! You can also view them by hovering over the project gallery tab in my main nav menu and a drop down menu will come up. Any project I’ve done will be there and is nice and organized by category so you can find things easily. Be sure and check out the seasonal decor gallery as well for all holiday categories. Fall and Christmas are coming up yay!!

  1. It looks wonderful – so light and bright! The desk is the perfect size for a bedroom and I love the mantel shelf with all its goodies!

  2. Oh my goodness!!! It’s beautiful!!!! :) xo

  3. Stunning. Please come to my house.

    My wedding picture is in the gold frame!

  5. It’s fantastic!!!

  6. I like it, but I’m resisting putting anything work-related/office-y in the bedroom. However, with only 700 square feet, it might be a necessity. I think we are going to turn the dining room into a library/office and make the current home office into a walk-in closet room, so I will have to go look up your dining room-office project!

    • Haha! I actually had saved photos from that post a long time ago, when I first had the idea and was looking online for inspiration. That’s way before I started following you on FB, etc., and before Pinterest was even in existence. It just struck me funny that it turns out it’s you! Makes sense, though. :-)

    So Cute…..

  8. Loooove how it all came together!

  9. I love it and that chair looks perfect!

  10. Love how it turned out Emily! :)

  11. Very nice. Clean, simple, not too cluttered- perfect. The navy and coral is growing on me.

  12. I am in love with your ‘fake mantel’! I had to do a double take and realize it wasn’t connected to a fire place haha. The office nook looks great.

  13. Bernadette says:

    I love the chair! Where’d you get it from?

  14. Esther Carr says:

    Wow, I’ve been surfing this afternoon and came upon your office in the bedroom. I know that it’s generally not a good idea to put your office in a bedroom, but I’ve moved into a brand spanking new “yellow cottage”. Don’t laugh, but
    I’ve taken the smallest bedroom for mine. The walls/ceiling are a light beige – the builder sort of expanded the ceiling to give the appearance of a larger room. So get a load of this: A long desk/credenza with hutch, a 6′ bookcase,
    typewriter stand, fax printer/stand, another printer, rotating fan, two single beds with blue/maroon comforters and
    a two drawer file used as a nightstand with cd’s in it, etc. Under the long credenza is a 2-drawer horizontal file.

    Don’t spend evenings in here but get my work done on the computer earlier in the day. ec

  15. Oh my goodness! I absolutely love it! Every detail is perfect! :)

  16. Those curtains! That chair! And that Mantle! Swoon…. I love every aspect of this little office nook! It’s a great idea for the ‘sitting area’ in our bedroom. Because let’s be real… and I ever just ‘sitting’?!?

  17. Great insider tips! Thank you.

  18. these are nice and simple ideas that make the decor of the office in the bedroom so fantastic and i think that the good sense is so attractive and practical than the expensive decor

  19. I work from home part time and I have a bedroom office and it serves me just right. Sometimes, when I work late into the night I find it great that my bed is so close, hahah.

  20. Brenda Brantley says:

    I love it all! Good job! So, where did you get the lamp?

  21. What kind of curtain rods did you use? I would love to see how the other part of the room came together with the office part. It’s so beautiful! Bold and elegant, I just love it!

  22. We stumbled over here different web address and thought I
    should check things out. I like what I see so i am just
    following you. Look forward to looking over your web page for a second time.

  23. Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve been to this web site before
    but after browsing through many of the posts I realized it’s
    new to me. Anyhow, I’m definitely happy I came across
    it and I’ll be bookmarking it and checking back often!

  24. Hey there, You have performed a fantastic job.
    I will definitely digg it and personally recommend to my friends.
    I’m sure they’ll be benefited from this site.

  25. Love this look. Where is the lamp from??
