Show us where you live Fridays - Office

It's time for Kelly's Show Us Where You Live Fridays again. This week is offices. When we moved in to this house the office was a paint treatment that I didn't really care for. I couldn't decide what color to paint it so when I found this wallpaper at Lowe's my mom happily put it up for me (thanks mom)! I'm not a big wallpaper person but I just loved the look of this...it looks like leather on the walls and I thought it was perfect for an office.
This is the view looking into the office. The bookcase on this side of the room is mine and is filled with true crime novels and a ton of Harlan Coben books (one of my favorite authors).
This side of the room has Shaun's bookcase. It is filled with medical/cardiology books that would probably put most people to sleep.
The diploma wall (the one on the far right is mine, all the rest are Shaun's). Guess that's what happens when you marry someone who has to go to school and train for what will amount to 13 years after undergrad).

My favorite thing in our office, a map of where we spent our honeymoon...St. Lucia!
Desk area (and lamp from Overstock.com)
looking out of the office
My nook....where I spend a great portion of Julianne's nap time (e-mail, facebook, paying bills, reading blogs, downloading and editing photos....the list is endless).
There you have it - our office. Go on over to Kelly's Korner if you want to see everyone else's!

What a great space, even if your hubby does hog the diploma wall, ha!!

I just noticed that your baby girl was born on March 5th- I have a March 5th "baby" boy, who just turned 8. How did that happen?

I like the walls a lot! Love the map- special pieces like that make a home so unique! My husband's bookshelf is not any better!

Enjoyed some time on your blog this morning. Your home is beautiful, your family is beautiful and I loved (and stole) many of the songs on your playlist. :)

Your walls are gorgeous! Good job on this room.

Oh Jenn I love your office. The walls are beautiful and really make the room warm.

Ok, but really, is your office always this clean? Certainly you scooped all of the papers off into a box before taking this photo.

No? Hmmmm. Mine is a mess and no matter how many hours I ignore the piles of paperwork they just keep multiplying! Granted we run our business from this room but really it's embarrassingly messy.

My new goal is to get mine as warm and lovely and clean as yours. ;-)


Love your room.

The wallpaper looks good, I'm totally scared of it!

I like those french doors too!

Pam said...

I'm not much of a wallpaper person either but you are right. It looks great in your office. Love the desk.
