Smith Office 2011

The one room in our house that really needed some TLC was our office.  I have dreamed about a beautiful hutch for along time now to hide cords, file important bills/papers, and just overall organize my life.  It would be an understatement to say marketing material has taken over the office and the bills in the kitchen drawer needed to be relocated to their own filing cabinet.

With much delight, we now have beautiful new office furniture that hubby and I moved in last weekend.  My little trusty Outback came to the rescue as we don't know many people with trucks (a HUGE difference from the south), so we had to make do which involved breaking the pieces down.  Moving is just exhausting, but the end result was absolutely worth it in this instance.

After four trips and a ton of heavy lifting ... Voila.
All those deadlifts came in handy as I held my own moving!!


Now, I need a modern rugs for the office to make this room complete!!
Let the shopping begin.

*Here's a random question.  Do you call the room above ... an office or a den?  My best friend calls it a den, and I am curious if that is just a northwest thing!

Looks like the perfect little office!

It's an office! A den, to me at least is more like a sitting room!

Thanks for stopping by the other day!

so cute!! I definitely call it an office ... a den is just a general name for a smaller room that you can use however you want it so I guess you COULD call it a den... but I would call it an office or a "study"

I'd go with office. A den seems like a second tv room to me.
Beautiful, by the way~

Looks very nice Kelsey! I definitely call it an office :)

Oh it must be awesome to have an office! Right now we're in a little two-bedroom place, with a toddler, so our work-area is shoved into a thankfully spacious living room. Now we're expecting baby number two, so we're in the process of getting a new home with at least three bedrooms, and if we can manage on in our price range, we're hoping for a fourth for that reason. You really made yours cute! :) And yes, office, den is more of a game-room or tv-area I think.

LOVE IT!! beautiful. so having a room like that someday! and ...

OFFICE. for sure. i agree with stephanie. a den is a nice pretty little area where you sit, chat, and drink tea with your pinky sticking up ;)

Kyle's desk looks almost exactly like that one but with different drawer pulls. Looks great in the room! And I call it an office :)

Angie said...

Very cute! I just redid my office too and it's amazing what some paint and new furniture does for a room!

Looks great! I would call it an office. A den to me would have a couch or little TV...

I call it an office. And yours looks great. I'm super jealous of your, because we currently don't have one, and I'm getting really sick of having our laptops here there and everywhere, along with our printer tucked away in the corner of the room. I just told the big guy last night, "I can't wait until we have a home with an office!"

Neely said...

An office if thats all it is. If it has a tv and a couch too then a den :) Looks great!

Jax said...
