A Space for her Office Space

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

 Thanks to Joanna for today's post!!

Hi! I’m Joanna, a blogger for Design Shuffle, the online source for everything interior

 design. I spend my work days gathering the most beautiful interior designs and sharing

 them with readers of blogs like Shannon Berrey Design. Thanks, Shannon, for letting me

share with your readers today!


For someone who works at home, having a dedicated work space is a must.

Having a decorated 'to the nines' office is even better. I’ve gathered together eight

 feminine work areas just for her. Take a look, enjoy, and come away with your

own decorating ideas! 


Home Office

Inspiration wouldn’t be lacking in this home office space. Even though it’s tucked away in the corner of a dine-in kitchen, the space still flows beautifully and definitely inspires some kitchen design ideas.

 Home Office

This richly-hued office has its own dedicated space. The vintage feel of the floral

wallpaper and the bright pink and chartreuse accents are a lovely combination.

This dressing room alone is enough to make many of our hearts skip a beat.

Pair that with an office and you’ll surely need CPR. That desk is phenomenal.


 Home Office

What’s not to love about this space? There’s plenty of storage and room to create and play. Does this inspire some wonderful bedroom design ideas?

Home Office

This home office is crisp and fresh. An all white palette with just a hint of color in the

 floral chair gives an energetic feel to the room.

What a view this home office has! One could get lost creating and working here.

The office colors blend naturally with the outdoor view.


 Home Office

With its red and white theme, this office reminds me of a valentine. The dark wood

floors contrast with the white furnishings perfectly. Tucking supplies, magazines and

clippings in specific storage bins keep the room nice and tidy. Great interior design

seamlessly merges beauty and functionality.


Home Office

If your work calls for having supplies at arm’s reach, then this is the space for you.

 What's more beautiful to a creative person than knowing exactly where everything is?

I hope your weekend was as wonderful as mine. I started out my birthday morning getting to snuggle with my favorite guy. We have both struggled to adapt to daylight savings time so we ended up on the sofa together before the sun arose. Love him.  

There was silliness to be had and even a little shopping. {Humanite Boutique--in Bryson City, our favorite haunt!}

And if that wasn't enough, I got more smooches at dinner. {aaannnnd CHRISTMAS MUSIC was playing!!}

My mom drove in to celebrate with us and fixed us a delicious dinner. 

{Somehow I got no pics of mom or Robert}


My very favorite of all things chocolate, my Great-Grandmother's cake recipe, was our dessert. I can't even begin to explain my relationship with this particular cake....

And a shot of some of the goods. Do these folks know me or what?? Look at these great books and baubles!

The whole day spent with family--it just doesn't get any better. I love you guys.

{Vietnam war}

Today and every day I honor all veterans.

Especially my very favorite one --my dad, Lieutenant Colonel, Dan Pugh. I'm proud of you.


Tablecloth traditions

Thursday, November 10, 2011

I love a good family tradition and was impressed with the idea that Lynne Palazzi's mom, Vivian started many decades ago.

She took a bedsheet, added a little lace, and it became a tablecloth for the family's table. Then, whenever a guest joined them for dinner, they would write a little note or simply sign their name. 

In no time it began to fill up with doodles, messages in other languages and outlines of sweet baby hands and feet. Miss Vivian stitched her own monogram, in hot pink no less, smack in the middle. {I needn't tell you how I feel about this!}    

Vivian decided to embroider over each message. She created a key system along the fabric's edge to track the year it was signed. Each date was assigned a color. When she ran out of colors, around 1990, she began twisting 2 pieces of floss together to create new colors! {Today, with so many different colored Sharpies available, you wouldn't need to embroider if you aren't handy with a needle and thread}

What a wonderful way to document years of love, great food, and fellowship shared around one table.  

{Lynne is the Editor at Large for Country Living Magazine. To see more of the story and to read some of the funny comments left on the tablecloth, click here.}
