Lately, I’d been wanting to make some changes to my office, I wasn’t in love with the decor that I had originally put in there and decided it was time to make some updates. A new rug was in order and I soon realized that my corner was missing a nice seating area.
After some browsing, I came across several rugs that I loved at Lulu & Georgia. It was tough choice, because seriously all of their rugs are gorgeous! I wanted something that I knew I wouldn’t get sick of in a year. The old rug was chevron and it had overstayed it’s welcome. I ended up settling on the Sabine rug and I’m in love. It’s busy, but it adds so much color and action to my little office. Thankfully Oliver loves it so much he’s decided to NOT make it a chew toy — you can imagine how excited that makes me.
So rug down, not time for seating. I was worried it might get too crowded, so I dragged in an old club chair to see how it fit with the size. Perfection! It made the room cozier and more finished-looking. That chair was red, so I started searching for an inexpensive one that was more my taste. I came across this velvet one at Target and knew I had to have it. I have a serious velvet addiction right now. I love the modern, clean lines of it! Choosing a color was harder. I wanted blue, but someone had left a review that called the blue ‘cookie-monster blue’ and that scared me a bit. I ended up ordering swatches of the navy and a light grey. Both were great, but I ended up going with the navy. It was not at all cookie-monster blue, but also not as deep of a navy as the picture shows.
It came last week! I did have to assemble it myself, but you know how I feel about tools, so I was okay with it. I guess that’s what makes it less expensive. I threw my Arianna Belle pillow on there and the room is feeling very complete. Oliver’s been testing the chair and gives it his approval. I keep catching him napping in there!
I ended up calling these two items birthday presents to me. It felt better than just splurging on my office for no reason. I couldn’t be happier with them both! Now please tell me I’m not the only one who buys birthday presents for themselves?
