My Home Office Reveal

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comI’m finally ready to share my finished office with you! After months of designing, planning, renovating, curating, and styling… I’m excited to give you the complete tour today. This room has certainly evolved since we moved in. Our first project immediately after moving into our home was replacing the carpet in my office with herringbone hardwoods– that was back in 2019. We stopped at that point to jump to another space. Over three years later, it’s hard to believe this is even the same room, as it has drastically changed. While it took longer than we expected, I’m really proud of this space and how it came together. Emmett & I put many hours into this room and I’m ecstatic to have a beautiful home office to enjoy for years to come! Click through for a couple before images, the full tour, sources, and to get a good peek of the details that went into this space. I hope you enjoy it!

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comFirst, let’s take a peek at a couple before images. I knew I wanted to get rid of the chamfered doorway and install pocket doors for privacy and acoustic reasons. We also desperately needed adequate lighting in this space, as there were no overhead or wall fixtures previously. My last objective was to create architectural interest and storage with a wall of built-ins. Before, it was a plain and ordinary space that wasn’t very functional for us.

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comPer usual, we took this room to the studs. It has new electrical, everything is level & true now, and Emmett did a great job with the finishing work. Here is a quick look at the room during the construction phase…

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comReady to see the end result? This room has a ton of storage and is such a bright & cheerful space. I’m looking forward to spending many hours in my new and improved home office!

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comWhere should we start? Let’s chat about the wall of built-ins first… because they’re my favorite part of the room. These extra deep cabinets are perfect for storing office supplies, swatches, design samples, and of course- plenty of books.

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comThere were definitely some design dilemmas to solve when designing this gorgeous wall of storage (like the vents), but I’m thrilled with how they turned out. I have more than enough room for work things, decor, and aesthetically speaking- I’m pretty in love with those delicate X mullion details on the glass cabinet doors.

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comSpeaking of glass… this might be the most difficult room I’ve ever photographed. I had no idea it would be such a challenge! There is glass on every wall and I was fighting reflections trying to accurately photograph this space for you. Photos really don’t do it justice. I just love the way this room feels in person and it was tough to replicate in images.

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comI’m thrilled to have a workspace with lighting! Previously, this room had zero hardwired light fixtures- which is kind of crazy. It was a big problem, given I usually work late hours. It always felt so dark and cave-like once the sun went down… not the most motivating work environment. Now I have a variety of fixtures that keep this room functional and warm. Maybe I’ll work on an after dark tour, if you’re interested?

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comEmmett even wired my secondary light fixtures, so my lamps & picture light are also on a switch for easy use during the evening hours.

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comDidn’t he do a fantastic job with the custom credenza I designed? He carved that hardware by hand. I’m so impressed!

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comDo you remember my custom window treatments I designed last year? It is so wonderful to see those installed again. I forgot how pretty they were!

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comI also installed a candleholder wall sconce from our shop, which I plan to swap colored tapers occasionally. I’ve only been working in this space for a week, but it has been fun to light a candle while I wrap up work each evening. I could definitely see that becoming a relaxing ritual… a glass of wine and a flickering candle if I have to work super later.

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comWhen I stumbled across my antique desk, the Facebook Marketplace seller also had this barley twist console table for sell. We snagged the pair and restored the both of them. I’m smitten with the shape, classic black finish, and it fits perfectly in the corner of my office.

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comSpeaking of vintage, another little find I styled… this brass trophy! I was digging the delicate shape and thought it would be ideal for holding my favorite pens. It’s dated 1956 and is solid brass.

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comDo you spy my intaglio? I wanted to keep this window corner vignette clean, simple, and interesting. It’s a nice spot to display art, a favorite candle, or new design books. Here’s a closer look at the art…

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comI’m a fan of mixing mediums, installing different subject matters together, and stacking or pairing pieces for an eclectic gallery look. Isn’t the frame beautiful? I love that one!

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comMy desk turned out really lovely! It needed more repairs than we thought, but Emmett spent the last month fixing each drawer, the stretcher, sanding, and even re-doweling the legs to make sure it is extra sturdy.

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comIn my floor plan, I always envisioned the desk to float in the center of the room, anchored by a rug. This antique desk is really the perfect piece for this space, as it deserves to be the center of attention. It’s one of my favorite antique finds to date!

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comThis room doesn’t have the square footage to include additional chairs, but I did squeeze in a skirted ottoman that can easily float around the space. I’m also planning to keep one of my leopard print chairs in the entryway (just outside the pocket doors), that can be pulled in if needed. I’m not meeting clients or taking in-person meetings in this office (since it’s inside our home), but Emmett occasionally likes to join me for a good brainstorm session. Having an additional spot to quickly sit was on my “must include” list.

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comMy gallery wall is basically what my equestrian dreams are made of. As a horse girl, these framed prints stole my heart and remind me of home! I’ve had so many questions about these gorgeous works. I ended up putting them in the shop, in case anyone is interested. You can either snag them individually, or buy the entire gallery– as I have it installed here. It’s definitely a vignette that feels very me…. and they make the perfect backdrop for my vintage marble horse.

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comA certain someone (ahem, Peggi!) surprised me with the coolest vintage iron horse! It has a beautiful patina. I thought about hanging it on the wall, but then opted to keep it out on my desk so I can have it close by. I’m going to use it as a little desk dish. It’s the perfect size for containing my memory cards and desk clips, which I’m constantly losing.

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comI’ll admit, I still need to screw casters onto the legs of my desk chair. The chair itself is actually really comfortable, and it fits my antique desk. That was quite the challenge- finding a chair that was short enough to slide under the old desk and still felt comfortable. It’s upholstered in Crypton performance fabric (since it’s white), and I tossed a new decorative throw pillow on there for a fun pop of pattern.

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comMy daybed has basically turned into a glorified dog bed. While I’m working, both Cash & Crosby lounge here. I knew it was going to happen, so I can’t be mad… it’s cute that they want to hang out with me while I work. The daybed is almost the size of a twin bed, so I also imagine that when our nieces or nephews come to visit, one of the kids could easily sleep here if needed. It’s super comfortable since it’s down, and it would be simple to remove the bolsters and toss on some sheets. This vignette just makes my heart so happy…

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comWhen shelf styling, I kept things loose and organic. There is so much structure in this space and lots of hard edges, so I wanted to break the grid a bit with some imperfect book styling. I allowed them to fall and shift naturally.

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comIf you’re wondering where all these books came from… 100% of them came from the thrift store or from my own reading collection. Check out this post for tips on thrifting books! I paid no more than $2 per book.

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comWe’re diving into our entryway renovation this weekend, so I didn’t get any great pulled back shots of our pocket doors because chaos has already ensued… but I’ll be sure to share a wide shot of my pretty pocket doors once the entryway is more put together.

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comInterested in seeing the evolution of this space? I’ll link my progress posts for you below, if you’d like to check those out…

My Home Office Reveal - roomfortuesday.comI still can’t believe this room is finished. It has been a lonnng time coming and I hope you enjoyed the end result! I’m over the moon that I get to work here everyday. If you feel inspired, feel free to share. I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comment section below. Hit me with your questions or anything else you might like to know or say about this space. Emmett & I are definitely celebrating finishing this project! I hope you have a fun weekend ahead, too. See you on Monday! Thanks again for following along and for your encouragement. I hope it was worth the wait.

    Sarah. SARAH! You two have knocked it out of the park AGAIN. Everything in here is so beautifully considered, but my favorite detail has to be the way that the thick crown over the built- ins meets the slightly less chunky crown of the rest of the room. Your attention to detail is inspiring!

    Good morning, gorgeous! That’s an office fit for a hard-working design genius-replete with stunning, custom details. Oh, the details! In neutral schemes, my eye always gravitates to the geometry, and you never disappoint in this regard! I almost think this room is a little love letter with all the Xs and Os! I adored the X detail on the built-ins from the first inspiration image, and they are magnificent. But I’m also smitten with all the corresponding Os-the bolsters, lower cabinet hardware, the chandelier rings and cups, right down to the blackened nailheads and gold “buttons” on the frames. But my favorite are the hand-carved pulls on the credenza! Such an unexpected, bold mod element! Perfection. I note the Vs of herringbone floors repeated in the elongated hexagon moulding on the desk, the barley twist legs mirrored in the tiny rope trim on the ottoman, and the greek key on the drapes speaking to that zingy green pillow on the daybed! Masterful, I say. Speaking of green, all those fresh hits scattered around the room are a resounding “Yes” for me. Gah. I haven’t even mentioned the inclusion of all the natural, grounding materials! Marble, bone, horn, iron, brass. The brilliantly curated art! The DESK?! Truly, Sarah and Emmet, a creative and carpentry tour de force. Bravo, bravo, bravo!! All this AND happy Pizza Friday? An embarrassment of riches. Well done, friends!💜

      Thank you, thank you! I don’t know if I deserve all that praise, but you made my morning. Thanks Peggi! I’m glad you noticed the Os in addition to the Xs. I wanted to sneak in some softer shapes to balance it out. Emmett spent forever carving those round wood pulls for the credenza. I wasn’t convinced he would get them perfectly symmetrical, but somehow he did. I was so impressed! Since I needed to keep the space neutral for my work environment, I definitely wanted to style in some punchy green tones and a bit of color & pattern. You know I like the little details :) Your thrifted horse makes me smile sitting there on my desk. It already holds a couple memory cards for me. Thank you again for that sweet detail! Cheers to crossing another project off the list, to pizza and celebrating tonight. Have an amazing weekend!! xo

    Woohoo Sarah! It’s jaw droppingly gorgeous, the attention to detail exquisite design and supreme craftsmanship is absolute perfection. It’s so warm and inviting I can’t blame the pups for wanting to lie on that daybed while you work it’s a stunning piece of furniture. Those built-ins are so spectacular, all the millwork and details are breath taking and styled to perfection. I could swoon over this office all day, seriously. The desk, the console, the artwork, and all the beautiful objects have me drooling. Everything is so beautifully curated, and the gift Peggi sent is perfect 💖 How incredibly thoughtful. I could go on and on about this spectacular reveal as I’m always constantly amazed at what you do. Definitely AD worthy 😍 I will be spying this space all weekend, what a wonderful way to start my day! Thanks so much for inspiring us once again and Cheers to the most enviable workspace. Enjoy! And have a super fabulous weekend 🥂 Please tell Emmett he knocked it out of then park, as always 😉

    Good grief almighty, it’s a design extravaganza!! 😍😍😍 First of all, you and Emmett continue to amaze me and this office reveal is no exception, but it just might be my favorite reveal yet! The first thing that jumps out (and by that I mean besides the delicate details, and wow factor), is the flow of the room. I can imagine you walking from desk to built-in, to credenza, and then to light your delicate candle sconce-this layout is impeccable. Now on to the details…You already know I’m in love with your custom drapes, but SARAH!! The white lamps against the natural credenza give the most delicate backdrop for the black and brass elements and I’m in optical heaven. The balance in this room is just stunning. My favorite vignette is the credenza wall-the equine gallery, with your vintage marble horse is exquisite! And that beautifully modern hardware handmade by Emmett is the ultimate detail. After all the trouble with the original daybed, seeing this one fit so beautifully, under the gorgeous art work truly takes my breath away. Having all the pops of green allows the artwork to standout even more and I just love the details. Your desk and table turned out beautifully! Of course the barley twist is irresistible, but the way the grain shows out on the surface, the hex detail trim, and the delicate drop pulls…everything about this space is superb. I’m so happy you have a space that feels like yours, is a beautiful and functional space, and is everything you wanted. It was absolutely 1000% worth the wait. You slayed the office game!! Enjoy the fruits of your labor Sarah, it’s stunning!

      Hah! Thank you, Lauren!! You made my day. I love that it feels like a light and airy space, but also cozy… it’s kind of a smaller room, but I have plenty of space to work and move around. I’m really happy with it! Those white lamps are my favorite. I kind of want to buy two more for our dining room. They’re just such beautiful and soft in person. I’ll have to show you a nighttime photo of them. The credenza wall really turned out to be more a moment than I expected, but I love the way it came together. You’re totally right- the daybed fiasco was all worth the end result. I’m thrilled we were able to find someone local to make it for us. I had to add a healthy amount of green decor because you know I’m missing my favorite color in our house. Emmett did such a wonderful job finishing my antique desk and the little console table. The wood grain is still perfectly prominent, which I love. Thanks again for your kind words. I hope you have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend ahead, friend! xox

Your love of horses, eye for details, texture, Emmett’s talents. Then I chuckled when I saw the pups peeking in through the construction curtain. LOL! I know you have had a lot of challenges with this room and the daybed. You did a great job persevering and keeping with your vision. You make neutral colors so gorgeous! Congrats on the room and sending good vibes for the entry to go much smoother!

Since I work with color often, I wanted the space to be neutral for my work environment- but definitely not boring. I’m glad it translates :) Emmett & I both agreed that the entry renovation *should* go much faster, but we shall see. Haha! I hope you have an amazing weekend ahead! xox

    Worth the wait! Elegant but inviting, neutral but interesting, clean lines but warm. Emmett and Sarah, you are a marvelous team – the storage wall, the credenza, the refurbished desk are all beautifully done. Every element contributes to the whole but I can see it effortlessly evolving with you as you come across other prefect additions such as a vintage rug. Yes to a night photo shoot and please show the pocket doors when the hall is ready.

    So much good here! I’m not as keen on the mullions as it looks a little like glass taped for a storm, but overall that built in wall is gorgeous and I love the picture and light above. I think I might get distracted in spending all my time on the daybed reading. I would not have been surprised if you told me you’d bought the credenza for $2-3k so kudos to you and Emmett for that!

    The office looks clean and calm and professional, such a lovely place to work.

    Hi Sarah! Your home office is to die for!!
    I’ve got a question that’s not really related to this post specifically. I’m still working on honing my interiors style in. As someone who lives in a part furnished new built rental it’s a little hard at times.
    I was wondering how you go about planning rooms in your home? Do you consider the location and the building itself? When looking at your house tours I can definitely see how your style evolved a little bit with each home, but at the same time I can tell that every home is yours.
    Thank you🙂

      Thank you, Maja! I’ve been loving working in here. In regards to your question about aesthetic and planning- I definitely consider the location, the building / architecture, how the room will function, the floor plan, as well as our personal style. I’m also a firm believer that our aesthetic evolves over time, so it’s definitely fun to look back at previous spaces with a slightly different style. Our current home is more traditional than our last, so naturally- it feels different stylistically than our previous home. I’m glad to hear that no matter the home or room we’re currently living in or working on- I enjoy hearing that you can tell it’s mine. That’s such a wonderful compliment. Good luck on your interior journey! I know you’ll find the aesthetic that best fits your needs and personality… just tackle your rental one room at a time in making it feel like your own :)

    Absolutely SO exciting to see this space completed! And it came together gorgeously, of course. Thanks for always inspiring and teaching me a thing or two in the most unexpected little ways!

    As always, late to the party, but I’ve been waiting to check this post out until I could really take the time and savor it. Needless to say, savoring I am! Everything, EVERYTHING, fits together so well and one of my most favorite things about your new office space is it looks like it’s been there forever and definitely fits your style, as well as your beautiful houses style, perfectly. What a dreamy space to work in, day or night-yes to a night tour-and I, too, can see why Cash and Crosby want to hang out in there all day!
    Too many favorite details to mention, but I especially love the tilting books, the vintage horse that Peggi gave you and how just that sweet little touch would make anyone smile, the X’s & O’s (great eye, Peggi!) and of course, the credenza and that incredible hardware you designed and E made a reality. Ummm, pretty sure you guys should be designing a furniture line!?! Fingers (& toes) crossed for that one day soon. Thank you for sharing, Sarah and it is *always* worth the wait when it comes to you two. So appreciate you sharing the process in “real time” and as we all know, quality is always worth the wait, blood, sweat and tears. Bravo, S&E!

      Hi Anne! Thank you so much- I really appreciate your sweet words :) We’re all loving using this space- including the dogs who are currently perched on “their” daybed. Haha! I meant to bring my desk calendar home (it’s on my desk at the Tuesday Made office) for the shoot! I totally wish we could design a furniture line someday. That would be so fun, but I have no idea where to even start. That would be a total dream come true though! Thanks again for being so patient while it took us eons to renovate and share… you’re right though- that’s reality. I hope you’re having a wonderful March! We’re so close to spring. xox

    Wow, wow, wow! I just read your article ‘AN ANTIQUE ADDITION FOR MY HOME OFFICE’ and I immediately clicked on this one when I saw the picture of the desk in black. You did an amazing job! It looks so beautiful in black.

      Thanks so much, Anne! :) I love the contrast the black added, and we still get to see that beautiful wood grain. Have a great day!

      Thanks, Kassie! I wish I had the link for those, but they were discontinued. I’m sorry! I bought them almost a year ago.

    I have come back to look at this about a million times. It’s so fresh and inviting! I love the built-ins the most too! I’ve looked around and can’t find the name/type of paint you used to redo the desk? It’s the perfect shade, which is harder to find than it should be! Would you mind sharing what you used?

      Thank you so much, Dailey! I used Tricorn Black by Sherwin-Williams on the desk :)
