GUEST POST: NICOLE AND DEBBIE OF LIVE LAUGH DECORATE ON DREAMY HOME OFFICES +BUDGET-FRIENDLY DESKS



LiveLaughDecorate

So thrilled to be guest posting today for Charmaine, one of our true blogger besties! We've been stalking Charmaine's blog ever since we started blogging a few months ago, and pop in daily to see what she's up to. We rarely have a chance to do any DIY projects so kinda live vicariously through her and her manic ability to transform items she finds on Craigslist. To honor her recent foray into design school and the need to create a home office, we decided to pay our homage by featuring some fabulously amazing home offices/desks that would make any girl wanna stay home and work as well.    
A great example of not being afraid of dark walls. Love the wallpaper and the varying layers seen here. Loads of items here that could also be replicated on the cheap i.e the buffet/console, wicker chairs and light fixture.

Budget-friendly Ikea shelving/storage units look all dressed up and custom with the amazing nuance of the woven baskets, books and other personal touches. Love the industrial feel/look of the desk but I think the chair and those sconces may have stolen the show on this one. Notice how the horrible flooring kinda disappears? It begs for an area rug, but a well designed room can even detract from that detail.

Loads of charm in this space! Look at the beauty of the legs on this vintage number and those mid-century chairs make a statement with that black piping. Plus, anyone who has such an amazing collection of books is likely not reading books online (pet peeve of mine) and therefore someone after my own heart. We likes. A lot.

Check out the amazing budget-friendly desks we sourced to get you inspired to start your own office makeover. It even includes a few beauties we found on Miami's Craigslist. See, Charmaine even has us looking for items  to purchase and not just sell on Craigslist.

These final three beauties are from Miami's own Craigslist. Good stuff no?



Thanks again Charmaine for having us over today to indulge in our home office fantasies. Hope you had an amazing vacay and made even more memories in Sonoma.
