Spring In The Girl/Cave/Office

When we bought this house I knew the loft area was where I would put my office - however I never imagined I would spend so much time in here.  I didn't have an office in the previous house, I just used  the buffet in the breakfast area as my desk. 

 I like being in the center of the action so I know what is going on, so being able to see half the house from the loft makes me feel like I am in the middle of things. This is my view from my desk. 

 It's not a huge space, but it totally fits all my needs.

The space measures 11 1/2 ft. x 14 1/2 ft.  As you come up the stairs - looking over the railing - this is the view.

This space came together pretty quickly with all the leftover things from our last house.  It's funny how that works sometimes.  All the odd-ball things just seemed to work.  This mirror is so perfect on the wall and it highlights the entertainment center on the opposite wall.

This unit is fabulous for all kinds of storage, the TV and even all my office needs too.  If I have a special show that I want to watch, I can sit in the leather chair curled up with a cup of coffee, tea or wine and have my own little space.

This gate-leg table and the small bookcase function as the perfect little office space.  

From my office chair I can see TV, listen to music or look over the railing and see half of the downstairs.  I love this view.

Do you have a favorite place in your home that you like to be?

To stay up to date on all the makeovers taking place at our new home, I would love to have you follow me.  You don't want to miss any of our "Hits & Misses".

  1. I do love your office and it’s warm cozy feel. My favorite spot is where I’m sitting at this moment enjoying the rain and seeing beautiful spring flowers and listening to the chirping of birds. It is my screened in back porch with comfortable chairs, a nice rug underfoot, a CD player and a marble-topped table to hold my hot chia or a cold glass of water. It’s perfect year round.

  2. Your office is wonderful. It’s like a family room. I sit at the kitchen table on my tablet quite often and I can watch the birds outside at the feeders and when in season my gardens too!

  3. Fantastic place to have a office and time to self.

  4. Love the office. Wishing you a Happy Easter.

  5. I am green with envy after seeing your office. I am thinking about updating my office and can only hope it will be as pretty as yours. I am inspired to get mine on the schedule.
    Happy Easter,

  6. I love that you have this cozy space for yourself. Thanks for linking up to Best of the Weekend, Marty. Your post was one of my features! Have a great weekend!
