Leslie’s office

I am working with my assistant Leslie to freshen up her home office. Workspaces have become one of my favorite rooms to work on in client homes and its an honor to get to do this for Leslie.



Market basket light from Restoration kids/ Be true print from Lindsay Letters/ Original art from Susie Betten Hausen/ wall lights, blue cart and kallax shelf from IKEA/ ghost chair from Overstock/ white desk from Target/ linen pinboard from PB/ flower girl print from Rifle Paper Co./ Chinoserie toile from Tonic Living

Leslie has been such a blessing to my business and to me personally I hope we can really make this space great for her, she deserves it! This is what her office looks like now . . .


Leslie is going to paint her furniture a glossy white and she already took out the computer desk  that was between the bookcases, she wants a new simple white desk to go there. We found several options at Target and online. The walls will be light gray or blue!

The drapes will be out of this fab fabric...She emailed me about it one day and I said YES and she ordered, we knew it was perfect for what she wanted, cheerful and pretty.

These wall lights are $19.98 from IKEA..its insane and  look at the cords. They perfect over her shelves or over pinboards

We aren’t sure about the ceiling light, I love the basket but it may not be large enough, we want something fun and fresh and Leslie has good natural light in the space. Also this is her house in a house of boys, so i wanted to use some feminine touches like the colors and themes in the art. Two of my faves are Susie Betten Hausen and this Rosa Print from Rifle Paper!

Susie’s work is so happy and fresh! I love this piece called Lunch in Bucktown

And I chose this print from Lindsay Letters because Leslie is honestly one of the truest people I have ever met and she has encouraged me to be that in business!  She has to have this print!

I can’t wait to see this space come together and take shape!  Thank you Leslie for all you do for me and others…you are so special!
