One Room Challenge - Week Five

Welcome to Week Five of the One Room Challenge where I have six weeks to transform my traditional red library into a glamorous and girly home office for myself. Click here to catch up on weeks one through four. Next week will be the reveal!

I had a very productive week. My gorgeous gold zebra rug arrived from Wayfair and it is stunning. I never realized that there are gold zebras. Who knew? They probably hang with the unicorns.

And I received this gold striped magazine bin from Jayes Studio, a great place for my shelter magazines.

I received this beautiful limited edition print from Minted called "Looking Up" and it is very dramatic. It takes up most of the wall it is hung on and looks fantastic.

Also framed and hung are these two botanical peony photographs from The Pink Pagoda. They are absolutely gorgeous. I hung them above my desk so that I can look at them all the time.

I ordered pink hanging files for my built in file cabinets and organized all my files - what a great little project.

And I've been busy styling my desk and bookshelves, getting ready for my photo shoot in a few days. Inspired by Kevin Sharkey's office, I have been playing around with arranging the books by color.

And this little angel is going to be very happy when I finish the room and can get back to devoting my every waking moment to her.
