Inspiration Board - My Office Makeover

Here is my inspiration board for my little home office makeover I have just started on. The painter comes tomorrow to paint. The walls will be Benjamin Moore Poppy - I decided my previous two red paint candidates were too brown with this fabric. The window treatment will be Charlotte Moss Caroline in Currant.

My Chinese Chippendale mahogany fretwork desk will get jazzed up with a beautiful blue and white Chinese porcelain lamp and some chic accessories. I have some great art for the room including a huge Inigo Jones that I love. My big score of the weekend was this fantastic dog bed in Scalamandre Zebras because Izzy likes to hang out with me in my office.

A black leather mid century modern bench will be a great spot for not only extra seating but magazines and files. A red lacquer Victoria ghost chair is for extra seating. I have a DIY makeover planned for my desk chair that is still in the planning.

Two projects will be styling the wall of built-in bookshelves and perhaps creating a gallery wall above the bench.

If you have been following along with my virtual makeover of a fantastic Chinoiserie historic property in Coral Gables, Florida over at The Glam Pad, you'll want to pop over today and see what I have envisioned for the kitchen.


  1. Beth! This is going to look incredible!! I am so excited that you are incorporating our beloved Scalamandre Zebras into your fabulous red office! Cannot wait to see the final results!

  2. This will be gorgeous, Beth! I love the dog bed and Izzy! A dog lover myself. I have three 2 mini-dachs and a shih tzu. I can't wait to see the paint color and what you do with the bookcases.

  3. Well, we know Izzy will look fab with Poppy! She's so adorable. I"m sure you two will create a lovely place to create.

  4. Beth - I have BM Poppy in my living room and it has made me so happy over the last couple of years. Hope you enjoy it as much as we have.
