my office... - The Dainty Squid

my office...

Monday, November 04, 2013

I'm kind of overdue on sharing photos of my office. I moved into this room quite a while ago but there just kept being small things I'd remember needed done every time I'd go to take photos. The Mutter museum print needed framed, bulletin board needed cleaned off, shelves just didn't seem to look right with what was on them, etc. It finally feels "complete" in here. Not that any room in my home is ever actually complete, this one is just at a really great point right now.
 
a few sources:
desk
jackalope jewelry holder
tooth planters
giant mushroom 
stay home banner
blue cart, mirror, wall pockets, & glass plant house are from Ikea.
shark trash can, owl pencil holder & ice cream lamp are vintage.
If you're curious about anything else, just ask!

xoxo

  13. Your office is so lovely. I'm trying to get mine to a state where I love to be in there at the moment. I just never seem to find the time or the energy to work on it though and my desk is currently a mess of papers and notebooks that don't have a home. I'm so jealous of your organization skills!

  21. Loving your office! I bought the IKEA cart in grey. I was torn but now seeing the blue one in action, I'm having a bit of buyer's remorse. Anyways, I'm mostly de-lurking to send you a link to something I saw on Etsy and thought immediately of you and your love of teeth:

    They're actually made from dentures, but still crazy to look at!
