Navy Blue Office – LMB Rental July 2014

Navy Blue Office

The navy blue office was one of the first rooms that I couldn’t wait to style when we moved into our rental a few months ago. I was unpacking boxes as we loaded them in the house & styling the shelves with stuff that we already owned. I was excited to work with these floor to ceiling bookshelves & this small little room off of our front sitting room. I’m still waiting on new window treatments, and I want to add a few lovely details, but if I waited for the room to be perfect than I would never be able to show it to you. Do I say that all the time? Yes, I probably do. I want you to feel confident with your house, I want you to know that it doesn’t have to be perfect for you to be content with your space. Show those rooms off! Even when you have curtains hanging a foot off the ground….

The walls in the office are relaxed navy by Valspar & they were painted by the previous owners. Of course if I had my choice of paint I would have chosen white, but I had the fun of the “challenge” of decorating with the navy walls. The rug is from Pottery barn, the desk is a painted antique, the fiddle fig print is something I found {here} & had printed at Staples & I placed in an antique window. The chair was another fabulous antique find {For Free!} it’s a comfortable desk chair & I love all the pops of green in this room with the navy blue. What do you think of the office space? Have a question or want to know where something is from? Leave it in the comments below, find me on Facebook, or chat with me on Instagram! I hope you like the space & thank you so much for stopping by my little blog today! xx

  1. Hi Liz. Your office looks amazing! Could you share a few more details about how you had the fiddle leaf fig print printed? I went to the link that you provided and I see the print. I didn’t see a link to purchase the print in her post and when I click on the Shop tab on her blog it doesn’t take me to a place where I can purchase it. Did you just copy it from the blog post and then get it enlarged at Staples? Thank you!

    • Hey! Ok, so I have never ever been able to find the original source for the photo… I brought the file on my camera card to staples and had them print it there. I’m sorry I couldn’t be more help!

  2. Amazing space! I love the details and how bright it is!

  3. I love it! You have a little bit of masculine with a little bit of feminine. Mixing in all the white trim just makes it perfect! I love the fiddle leaf print too.

    I just love the “navy” office and even though the color is not what you would have preferred it turned out fantastic! You met the challenge and have broadened your palette so to speak I love whites and grays as well, but this adds some depth and class to the home…and you can’t have EVERYTHING white can you? I think this room is beautiful! I wish I had known the color paint before we painted our kitchen! Good Job !

  6. Love the room! The dark walls really look great with all the white trim, bookcases, and desk. A nice contrast. Love what you’ve done with the room, too, very nice!

  7. This room is stunning. I personally love the navy on the walls, it helps to bring the focus on the bookshelves. Hope you update us on what you do for your window treatment!

  8. Liz! Love the office! I think you did a great job of pulling bits of blue into your decor to make the colors blend nicely! Great job!! I’m jealous- my rental’s walls aren’t nearly as pretty :)

  9. I am so in love with this room. I love the mix of blue and green, and you did a great job styling it!

  10. Liz, it’s goregous! I think the green with the blue walls is just lovely. And that round rug is seriously fantastic!

  11. I actually really love the navy walls! Everything looks beautiful and you did a great job of working with the color in the room.

  12. What a peaceful and pretty office space, and I love that leather chair. laurie

  13. Very pretty! I like how you centered the desk in the middle of the room and with the window.

  14. Liz,

    This is perfect.
    Your talent for pulling elements together seamlessly, not only inspires homeowners, but all of the renters out there. You work WITH a room, and that eliminates any negative energy that can sometimes show through.
    Bravo! I love this room!

  15. What a great office! Loving that round rug to break up the uniformity of the space.
    So Pretty.

  16. Love the office Liz! I need a navy room!

  17. Beautiful office! Is the Fiddle Leaf Print just an engineer print or photo paper quality print?
    Love it and would like to do the same thing. Thx Allison

  18. Gorgeous! I just love all the details on the shelf! I love the navy walls to! They look amazing with the white shelves!!
