SEMI-DIY CUSTOM FLOATING SHELVES

Like Ashley posted on Monday, we spent last Saturday at our semi-local Ikea. Even though we ended up buying some other goods for the house (Who goes to Ikea and leaves with only the things on the list?), our main reason for making the 1.5-hour trip was to pick up six large floating shelves for my office. Since my office is going to have a bit of a modern bent to it, the clean lines and sharp contrast of the…

GOING TO THE DARK SIDE

Seal by Martha Stewart  |  7th House on the Left

As we mentioned in this post, Ash and I spent the weekend going over to the dark side… in my office. Before I get to the before and after photos, I have a bone to pick with Martha Stewart for naming this paint color “Seal”.

We like to call it “modern geek chic”: 1. Kivik Chair 2. Circuit Office Accessories 3. Fado Pendant 4. Giant Wipe-Off Board 5.

A TECH GEEK MODERN OFFICE: PART 1

geek office mood board

When it comes to decorating, every couple’s decorating agenda is different. Since this is our first house, we are learning about ours a little more each day. Lately, it’s been all about the shell of the room (walls, floors, wiring, molding, lighting, etc) rather than what is actually going in the room, so we haven’t quite perfected our groove, yet. Thus far, we have been working pretty good together as a team. When I find something that I think will look…
