But change is life, and it's usually for the best.
I dabbled over what to do with my newfound free time, and wasn't sure if I should find a job or freelance? Were there cool start ups out there? Was I destined for a trousers and a 9-5? Was freelancing an option for me? It's such an interesting place to be at. And my interesting, I mean overwhelming :)
I interviewed at a few companies, but was offered some freelance work by a few different friends, and took them up on it.
Turns out, it works for me. So as of a week ago, I officially am doing Freelance PR, Social Media, Copywriting, Marketing and Producing. Exciting!
With this development, it gives me the need for a home office. Since Matt already works from home and is occupying one room as an office, I get a corner of the guest room (which totally works for me!).
It's this cute little nook with great natural light (a major perk!) with a desk already built in. It has all these shelves above the desk and next to it, but I'm going to take some of them out.

Right now, the "nook" (as I call it), has been a serious catch-all during the remodel process we are going through. It has serious potential but is pretty blah right now! Luckily, we are (FINGERS CROSSED) a few weeks out from being all done with that, so these random items will have a home.... and the Nook will be my little work corner!
Here's what I'm kind of envisioning.
- Less of the shelves/add a few drawers for hidden storage
- Pretty little details
- A better light (i hate that lamp!)
- Simple, well used decor
Here is some of my inspiration I've been found on Pinterest
|Love the two shelves and the pin board next to it. Simple, but fills the space nicely.|

|Love these colors. Neutrals with some gold. Also love the plant on the side of the desk! Which leads me to....|

|Succulents for my windowsill! Indoor plants make me happy. And succulents are hard(er) to kill.|
gold details. Love all of these so much!

Green accents to go with my succulents, and keep with the neutral pallet.
I'm excited for this project and a space to call my own. I'm also thankful for a handy husband who can actually help me create the kind of space I want! I'm pretty dang lucky.
Any input? Any suggestions of decor that might accent this space? I'm all ears!
