Last week, I shared some snippets of our office space on Instagram, and while I was shopping for winter & seasonal decor for our house– I decided to order some things for the office. What I envisioned as a quick styling project escalated to painting the office bathroom, but it looks a thousand times better and was well worth the effort. Click through to see the transformation, and to shop my favorite, budget-friendly seasonal furniture & decor finds from one of my favorite retailers, Joss & Main! I’m not decorating for the holidays quite yet, but I do have plans to transition our home into the cozy & festive season that is upon us. Bring on Thanksgiving and snowy weather… I’m ready!

We are renting our office space, so I didn’t want to sink a lot of money into the bathroom, but it definitely needed some love. Despite the fact that I had scrubbed it clean, it still looked drab and dirty in certain areas. It’s amazing what the power of paint, swapping a mirror, and adding a few styling accessories can do for a space (even an ADA-compliant basic bathroom)! I only spent an hour or two making this room look and feel totally different…
I added a durable rug, swapped the standard mirror for a more designer looking mirror, and painted the walls a contrasting color (Willowleaf by Sherwin-Williams). Those little updates made the space look a lot cleaner and more stylistic.
All of my finds for this room came from Joss & Main’s Winter Edit. They just launched this season’s selections- which features trends, materials, colors, and items that are forecasted to be popular in the coming season. Everything was pretty spot on with what I have been noticing: tartans & plaid for winter, lots of dark earthy organic tones, natural & woven materials, and luxe textiles (like velvet).
Most of my picks from their edit are budget-friendly and are actually on sale right now! New trend edits are released every season, and each month they add new arrivals. I included a bunch of classic pieces that look far more expensive than they actually are. I’m all about getting a custom or designer look for less. Ready to see what I liked?

01: dome pendant // 02: framed art print // 03: cane dining chair // 04: double armed sconce // 05: lumbar pillow // 06: preserved boxwood wreath // 07: round coffee table // 08: blush rug // 09: beveled wall mirror // 10: faux fur throw // 11: round dining table // 12: preserved eucalyptus wreath // 13: plaid ottoman // 14: framed canvas art // 15: porcelain table vase // 16: accent cabinet // 17: pine wreath // 18: bar stools // 19: trestle coffee table // 20: wool area rug // 21: terra cotta bottle set
For the office bathroom, I ended up ordering #8 (the rug), #9 (the golf leaf wall mirror), #14 (the oversized framed art), #15 (the vase- which has an awesome, soft texture), #16 (the storage cabinet)… and we already own #18 (the bar stools), which currently live in our basement kitchen. I actually wish the bar stool color I linked in the roundup, would’ve been available when I placed my order a couple years ago- I think I prefer the gray linen to our white velvet.
As for the wreaths in the collage- I’m kind of a purist when it comes to holiday decorating… I don’t want to decorate too soon, because I prefer to fully enjoy and celebrate Thanksgiving first, but I feel like adding wreaths is a festive way to usher in Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the winter season without going over-the-top too soon (the struggle is real). I’m actually debating if I should decorate early this year, like the rest of the world seems to be doing. What is your plan? Anyway- back to the bathroom glow up… I’ve got more to share.
Without having to do any real renovation work, this space better fits our aesthetic and looks clean again. Adding some residential touches that still work in a commercial space was key! Aside from paint, the rug and the mirror were probably the two biggest game changers. Here is another before & after of the adjacent wall…
It was basically a blank canvas begging me to get creative and add some function… I knew I needed a cabinet to keep cleaning supplies and toiletries.
I really love the woven, textural doors and the warmth the cabinet brings to the space. Best of all- I can fit plenty of supplies inside and it serves a purpose at our office.
It has been interesting having a space outside of our home to furnish, decorate, and make our own. Since we’re renting, my goal has been to make smart purchases that can easily go from our home to the office, and vice versa. Should we ever move someday or relocate, I could use all of these items in our house. Having the ability to effortlessly mix & match, in your home (from room-to-room), or in our case… from our home to the office (residential to commercial), is really convenient! I feel like most of these things could easily morph into other areas and aesthetics- which I count as a win.
The difference in the bathroom at our office is night and day! It was tricky to capture because of the fluorescent lighting, but I’m happy with it. I can’t wait to show you more projects we are tackling there. The kitchenette is so cute and is almost finished. What items are your favorites from this roundup? There are lots of classic pieces packed into this one! When are you planning to decorate for the holidays (or have you already- no judgements)?! I feel like anything goes this year and we should all be doing anything and everything that makes us smile. Have a great week!
