We have a light in the office!! Also a new rug which is equally as exciting. Jose and I have been a little stressed lately to see the least. Attacked from all ends you could say. From our upcoming market, to fixer upper fails, to work, to other life things. We just want peace. One step we have taken is taking more “us” time. I say it all the time, but how lucky are we to be best friends and get to spend every day together? Well, with our lifestyle we still need to be intentional about hanging out and not always working on the house or other life things so date nights and intentional hang outs & cuddle sessions have been a must lately & really focusing on each other. Clearly this means date nights & on our date night last Saturday we ended up at Home Goods & World Market & magically we found a rug we loved & a light fixture we are obsessed with for our office. Along with the laughs, the relaxation, & good food, it added up to one successful date night & that’s a win for us lately when it seems like we are losing at every angle.
The light fixture [HERE] is from World Market & I instantly fell in love with the simple farmhouse vibe & the feminine delicacy that it had. The only thing about the light that I wasn’t obsessed with was the color. It looked black hanging up in the store, but when we got it home it was more of a dusty blue/gray. It was pretty, but for the space I wanted that black contrast in the room. So, we bought the light & a can of matte black spray paint & I went to town. If you follow me on Instagram [HERE] then you maybe saw the whole process in my Instagram stories. Jose hung it yesterday & I’m loving everything about it. It needs bulbs, but hey that’s a minor detail right?
The rug. Oh the rug. Jose actually found this one & I’m so proud of him. haha that might seem cheesy, but I don’t care… he’s good! We were wandering Home Goods when he spotted this gem & simply said “I like this one.” well I do too sir. I do too. Better yet? it was less than $200 for an 8×10 & the quality is amazing. I love a good wool rug. It’s firm so the chairs [HERE] slide over it perfectly yet cozy for texture in this little room. I hadn’t been to Home Goods in so long, but after the rug find I fell in love all over again.
The office is truly coming along! I’m taking that white cupboard out this weekend & replacing it with something else that I’m excited to show you. We still need light switch covers, window treatments, & wall decor, but it’s coming along & I’m so thankful for this space. In fact I’m sitting in here right now typing this with a candle lit & some Johnny Swim playing & it’s quite magical. I hope you guys like the updates to the office & I will hopefully have it finished soon.. stay tuned! Thank you guys so much for stopping by the blog today.. y’all are awesome! xx
