I started an online search. Of course the only thing I was able to find at the time that came close to what I liked was a custom design starting at $2200.00! Yikes... I don't know about you but $2200.00 just is not in the budget for an office chair. To be honest there is not a budget for an office chair right now. But a girl can dream.
At the turn of the new year Ballard Designs sent me a thank you note along with a 15% discount code and the newest catalog. My husband calls coupons and discount codes "a trick". I call them "a little boost". Wouldn't you know this lovely white washed chair with camel colored leather was right before my eyes. YUMMY! Doesn't it make you think of a mocha cupcake topped with homemade, whipped cream frosting and a drizzle of salted caramel?
I guess I have a craving for something sweet.
My office walls are already painted Pottery Glaze Blue by Valspar® and there is a hammered silver lamp sitting on a chocolate colored side table. Brown, silk draperies and an amazing turquoise and brown area rug adorn the space.
My handsome, handy man told me he would construct built-in bookcases with a white wash finish around the archway that leads into our family room. That's the reason for a white desk. I've been envisioning white built-ins for a long time now. We'll also look into having an electrician install ceiling lighting. I want to put in a glamorous chandelier. The office was originally supposed to be the formal living room but I needed an office and who uses formal living rooms anymore?
This post makes me feel a bit like Candice Olson from "Divine Design". She pulls out all of her swatch books and flooring samples, breezes through them and voila she's got an amazing space designed and fit for royalty. Oh the fun she must have with those nice, design budgets and contractors at her beck-and-call. Again... a girl can dream!
