Today I'm happy to show off the new Guehne-Made office. When I took my Leap of Faith and left the corporate world, which you can read all about here, I knew I needed a new and refreshing home office. I spend a lot of time in the office, as I'm sure most people do, and I believe it should be a place that promotes creativity, inspiration, and happiness. My old office was fine, but I didn't LOVE it like I do my new one. Check out my old office here, which was the room across the hall from this one. The old one doesn't have as much sunlight and the red paint was just a bit much for my already passionate personality.
Before I moved into the new office I had Nick paint the walls from celery green to Benjamin Moore Snowfall White. I already had both desks and I'm so crazy about the white West Elm Parsons Desk, I want to order a larger one for my kitchen (when I get to renovate it!). White is so very refreshing & calming, and I'm surprised more people don't use it in their homes.
I told Nick that our next house is going to be all white with a pinch of color! Not sure he's on board with the idea yet, but it's worth a conversation. Would you paint your walls, trim, and doors bright white?
