In the spring my family moved to our new house. We didn't move far…just 5 miles down the road. However, it was the first house my husband and I purchased together. I moved into his house when we got married and before we knew it, it was 8 years later with 2 kids! In our old house, my "office" was in the living room and my closet was the old coat closet by the front door. Needless to say, I was super excited to get my office when we moved!
The tricky part about our house is that both my husband and I work from home. He got the actual office and I got the guest bedroom. I decided to take our daughter's twin bed and convert it into a "day bed". My mom visits us often that she needs her own space when staying with us! So my Work Space is both an office and a guest bedroom with a full bath.
But I'll take it. :)
Hope you don't mind my rambling for the blog post. I just loved being able to pull together things that inspire me while I work.
I wanted a wall on the same side as my desk to be of things that inspire me, motivate me, and make me proud. When we were cleaning through our stuff in the old house, I found my old film prints from 1999. I took a photography class in high school and then went to Europe for our senior trip for a history class. I decided that my Senior Photography Project would be my trip. I still to this day remember taking those photos, developing them, and how awesome my teacher was. I was proud to place those on my wall. You might notice that they are all black and white. Well, Im a SUCKER for black and white!!! LOVE THEM. Just tells a story. Don't get me wrong. LOVE color. But black and white images, they take that photo and make it timeless.
Im such a note taker!! I always have a list going and crossing things off. I found the camera note pad at Target. Mouse pad and phone case cover are from my Etsy shop! Love all things monogrammed.
Again crossing things off! Client workflow check list for all my sessions.
I love film and hope to make more time for it this winter! This photo on the right? Back in the days where I would practice, practice, practice on my kids. Im pretty sure I edited that photo in Picasa. Its important to remember where you started and how you got where you are today.
Reused some old frames and printed prints of our family and special times. I loved visiting NYC and capturing Jackson Pollock and going to the Guggenheim.
The bedroom side of the room.
Wanted it to feel welcome to those that do stay in there.
It worked out great that the beach images I had in our old house fit right at home in here with the colors. And yes, thats a REAL rainbow. :)
Hope enjoyed the tour!! One of these days, I'll have my house done and I'll blog that too!
