Before and After: Desire to Inspire's Fabulous Home Office

Before and After: Desire to Inspire's Fabulous Home Office

Desire to Inspire's Kim Johnson recently made over her home office and the transformation is so stunning I had to share it with you. The L-shaped room began with pale blue walls, unpainted trim, and hardwood floors she calls "totally uninspiring." Since a home office is an oft-used room for a blogger, dreary was just plain unacceptable. Kim said, "Since it gets a lot of sun, I wanted it to be cheerful and bright." Luckily, she has a killer eye for design. After painting it in crisp white from head to toe, she infused it with colorful accessories and furniture. To see a photo of the transformation,


I adore her cheerful color palette, with its sunny punches of yellow, the tropical teals and greens. The fact that she used white as a background really allowed her to go wild with vibrant accessories. Everything in the room was from eBay, Etsy, Ikea, or local vintage shops; it's inspiring to see affordable furnishings make such a bold statement. My favorite piece is the brushed turquoise Art Deco armoire which she made over herself from its original dark wood form. Check out Desire to Inspire to see many more photos and hear how Kim completed this project!
