A Rebirth Makeover
OMG! Talk about pressure. We are at the tail end of Week #5 of the One Room Challenge and there is a lot to do still.
Having a house full of sick people including myself and having to travel for work did not help, but am sure I will get it done this week. Photographed early next week and really hope to get some engagement and comments on this makeover.
It’s something I always wanted to do- enter a challenge or design competition and it was never the right time. Well, this wasn’t the right time either but I am doing it.
How am I going to get it done?
I have known for a while that taking deep Yoga breaths helps with anxiety and re-centering. So, that is what I am doing. Breathing.
After having to move out of my lovely shop, accept the changes that I have gone through, letting go of the hard work I had put into that space, the “emotional rollercoaster” and exhaustion from the resistance – Yes, I was resistant to letting go, but I believe there are better things in store for me and SEA INTERIOR DESIGN.
I am more convinced now than ever that when in doubt, surrender, then surrender again and ask The Universe/God/Higher Power for guidance- but not asking for what I think I need, instead allow.
- Wallpaper the two walls.
- Install window treatment hardware.
- Hang window T.
- Style the office.
- No new chairs, or new desk yet 🙁
- Connect the lights above the display wall.
- Add two shelves to the display wall.
- Accomplish this with patience and grace and give it my all.

Selecting accessories for a small office where I need to make space for samples, office supplies, books etc and there is little space/room for decorative items will be challenging. Yet, still keep it inspiring, welcoming and my personal choice – charming.
I keep candles, I love candles, I light a candle every day. The aroma keeps me calm, the glow makes it comfortable. I like to stimulate all senses not just visual and tactile with accessories.
I also love plants too, and like fewer but impactful or meaningful accessories. Things that are unusual, unique and conversation pieces.
I also love texture, organic shapes, and materials- and depending on the space pops of cohesive color. However, in this case, this office is pretty monochromatic. So, for now, I am planning on brushed gold, black & white and perhaps some wood tones. (May edit the wood)
Accessorizing this office is going to be tough, but am sure I will nail it- even if some editing is required after the reveal.
Also, please add your comments and let me know what you think.
