It’s time for part two of decorating my office! If you’re just now checking in make sure to read part one first. Alright, let’s get back to color selection and my room reveal!
So we ended up choosing Donnegal for my office accent wall color. I loved the beautiful blue shade. We went with Pittsburgh Paints & Stains Grand Distinction Interior Paint. It’s a paint and primer in one which is amazing! We went with the satin finish and I love how it has a little shine to it without being overwhelming.
When we got home with our paint we were so excited we immediately got started painting. Here’s what the room looked like before we did anything to it.
And here’s a digital representation of what the room would look like using Pittsburgh Paints and Stains’ Online Paint Color Visualizer. I thought this was such a cool feature!
Here I am putting on the first coat of non-virtual paint in my new office! Can you tell I’m excited? 😉 I was amazed at how quickly the painting process went. Two coats and we were done!
As soon as the paint went on the wall I knew it was the perfect color. My mind started reeling with ideas for how to decorate it. This was my first real decorating project for a room of my own and I wanted to make it special without spending a ton of money. I went to Target and Hobby Lobby to get some accessories to help infuse a little bit of my personality into the room. I love gold so I had fun adding some gold accents to the room. While this is definitely a feminine office I tried to not go overboard since Josh does live here with me. 😉
Punkin was a big fan of the room and immediately claimed this chair as his own.
I really like how the blue wall helps the grey, black, and brown play nicely in this space. Josh has a brown chair from his bachelor days that I wanted to incorporate into the room and I think it looks great against the blue.
Coming up with this wall art design was a lot easier than I expected. I went to Hobby Lobby and laid all my options out on the floor. I loved how the middle picture ties in the blue wall and that the gold poofs add a little texture to the design.
While at Hobby Lobby I found this Heart and Soul wood block and had to have it. It was on sale for $6 and was a perfect nod to the fact that I put my heart and soul into Her Heartland Soul.
This desk was another Target find. I swear my entire apartment is basically Threshold products.
The flowers were a sweet surprise from Trader Joes on my birthday! When they asked what we were up to last weekend I said celebrating my birthday and before I knew it a team member was coming over with flowers. It was such a kind gesture and put a huge smile on my face.
I’m not showing the rest of the room right now because it’s not finished. We have a book case and a long black shelf (seen right) to still get rid of. We’re then replacing the black bookshelf that is currently in the room with a new brown bookshelf that we still have to assemble. Fingers crossed this room will be completely done sooner rather than later!
Turning my blog into a full time business has been my dream for years and I couldn’t be more excited for the path I’m on. This beautiful new office is one exciting step in my journey. 🙂
Make sure to stop by later tonight for a chance to win $500 to Menards to design your own dream room!

Alexandra @ My Urban Family says
I LOVE this! The color looks amazing and the way you arranged everything on the wall is so nice! Congrats on the new space 🙂
My office is a green also – more of a dark sage green. I find it very soothing to work in there (here). I love how you put inspirational quotes in your office, it is a place of heart and soul for us bloggers! My dream is to make blogging my full time gig as well. I wish you well!

LOVE the color!! It’s similar to the color we have in our bedroom…I think it’s very calming but creative, too!

That’s a beautiful color! I love how the digital rendition of the color has basically your husband’s silhouette shape in it- made me smile!

The color looks great, and how fun to do a virtual test before it goes on the wall. I might have too much fun with that feature!
This is so charming and that color is unexpected but so perfect!!
Nicole @ Simply Nicole says
Love that color. I’ve been meaning to paint a wall in our home office a very similar color. Looks great!
Nicole @ Simply Nicole
Love it! it looks awesome! Now I need to find a place to set up my own desk (I have a huge room, and need a set work area, I think).
Katie Elizabeth says
Love it!!! Such a great, happy color for an office! And I hear you on the Threshold line – I would buy one of everything if I could!
I love it! We just bought our house and will be doing the office over soon! I actually picked a really similar color and now am on the hunt for the perfect accessories. It looks great!

So cute!! Love the wall color with the cold and the prints you picked!! I definitely need to remember Hobby Lobby when it comes time for me and Dave to get a house (within the next couple of months..fingers crossed!!).
Can you share where each print is from or link to them? Thank you!!
This turned out great! I am in the process of finishing my new office. I have my gallery wall laid out in the middle of my floor while I make sure I have enough. Thanks for sharing!
