the big day is finally here!

we're moving on Friday and we can't wait. we've closed on the house but our furniture can't be delivered until Friday, so we've been working to get the house spic and span beforehand. If I have any word of advice to people buying a new home – have your carpets professionally cleaned. It is amazing! I have been back to the house twice since they were cleaned and I just want to hug them, they are so awesome.
Once we're unpacked, the first order of business is getting my home office set up. As you know, I've been working from my parents' home office and have been daydreaming about what my office will look like. Well... I've found it. The perfect office. Behold...

I definitely need multiple work spaces for all of the folders and papers I have. I love the idea of keeping everything in the credenza and then having a clean workspace. I love the white and the pop of color on the chair, while the gold lamps warm up the space. 

And the blue ottoman is a stroke of genius. Ask anyone that I worked with in Chicago, I was always propping my feet up on my guest chair, so this is perfect for me. I think I might flank tall white bookcases on either side of the credenza to hold books, pictures and background materials for my projects. 

Now I just have to figure out where to get the pieces and make this a reality. Any ideas?
