A Dream Office

One of the things I continually dream about is having my own home office one day.  Right now, I use a guest bedroom to throw ideas together and pin things to an inspiration board.  
Many of the offices I see and am drawn to are sleek and glamorous.  However, I often forget how much I love shabby chic, rustic, and French-inspired interiors just as much.   So when I spotted this home office featured in Country Living's House of the Year, I was immediately drawn to the rustic aesthetic.

I love that a cozy settee was added in the corner of the office.  The pop of rose pink adds fun color to the neutral space. Can you believe it's from Ballard Designs?! I also love those wire storage bins on the wall.

A dual workstation is created by utilizing both sides of the desk.  The desk height is elevated a bit to keep the designer up and moving, rather than just sitting and stagnating.  I love that idea!

Fabric rolls and other necessities are stored in style and add to the overall decor of the space.  

An entire wall was upholstered to be used as an inspiration board for pinning images, fabric, paint samples and magazine pages.

What do you think?  Do you love the rustic vibe of this office as much as me?
