Manolo blue office progress

From the beginning, I knew my office would be what I deemed Manolo blue. And so, I began to gather some fun items to start pulling it together.

Several blue accents, but overall I love the clean, white workspace…

So glad I went with the “small” version of this light – it was much bigger in person than I had imagined, but I love it and it looks cool both in the day…

…and at night (especially from outside!)

The last items I need to add are this Ikea chair and ottoman that wouldn’t fit in the car during our last furniture excursion to Mecca. In the meantime, I’ve looked elsewhere but can’t find anything I love as much, and for this price point, which I’m pretty tied to considering it’s just an occasional reading spot and not a daily use living room piece. So far, I love working in here and am looking for any excuse to go to a city with an Ikea to finish this room up! 🙂

  • Love the blue you have chosen for your office. I would not mind working in there either. Love the chair you have chosen for the room. Very cozy and warm looking.
    You have the perfect window for the chair, great lighting. I have seen those ceiling lamps before in peoples craft rooms and offices. Super nice.

  • I am so in love with this space. With the chair it is magazine worthy for sure.
    I think I need to do a Smith House post in the near future.

  • I love the room. I am just wondering what the color on the walls is?

    • The wall color is Sherwin Williams “Mindful Gray”. It feels very light and airy in the day and a bit more intense at night with less lighting. We love it!
