5 Ways to Get This Look: Colorful Office

I know I’ve said it already, but I am so grateful to have my very own studio where I can craft and create.  It’s been amazing to have a place where I can work and have all my supplies close at hand.  I highly recommend taking a look at your home with fresh eyes, and try to find a spot–even a small one–to become your own creative space.   For a little extra incentive to do so, check out this funky yet lovely office that I found at House of Turquoise by Olive Interiors.

House of Turquoise office inspiration

I love the way the pale walls and desks in this room serve as a clean canvas for the color drenched accessories.  If you look closely, there are a lot of different colors and patterns in this room, but all that white keeps the room from looking like a cartoon.  It looks like a place where it would be easy to be creative.

1.  Colorful Focal  Art

When I saw the playful abstract art on the wall in this room, I immediately thought of a fun diy art project by  3 Little Greenwoods that I featured at Roadkill Rescue.

2.  Fabric Covered Storage Box

In My Own Style offers a tutorial for covering a shoebox with fabric and a metal label holder that is similar to the pretty storage box in my inspiration photo.

3.  Painted Ceramic Stool

Ceramic stools can be a charming addition to a room.  If you can’t find one in the color of your choice, no worries–The Painted Hive has a tutorial so that you can paint it in just the hue you want.

4.  Upholstered Bamboo Chair

If you love the look of a comfortably upholstered bamboo chair, The Happier Homemaker shares a way to get a similar look from a thrifted chair.

5.  African Juju Hat

Feathery wall hangings like the one in my inspiration photo are actually African tribal headdresses that run anywhere from $300-1500.  Love Maegan has figured out a way to craft a very similar textural art piece for a fraction of the cost.

  1. That room is gorgeous. I’m not sure if I would get anything accomplished, because I would set there and look at the pretty. Honestly, the first thin that grabbed my attention is the wall color. I need to get a paint swatch of that!

  2. I love a neutral palette, but then I see this office and go, ahhh, gorgeous! My office walls are a pale blue and now I want to add more color. First up, though, is to declutter. This may take awhile….

    • Ha! That’s always the fun part with offices – too many papers! This room offers a great inspiration for those who generally prefer more neutral palettes because it starts with a neutral base and then adds pops of color with artwork and accessories. Have fun with that decluttering! 😉

  3. I’m like you, SheilaG. My workspace is white on white on beige. This office inspires me to add colour!

    I love this fabulous crafty space!! I need to tackle my craft room… at one point it was starting to come together but now it has become a dumping ground. This space has me totally inspired!

    • Been there my friend! I’m a little more motivated to keep my new craft space orderly since I worked my tail off on it! Ha! I hope your space comes together too and am thrilled you were inspired.
