I want to thank everyone for their kind words about yesterday’s post. Thankfully, yesterday was a lot better than Tuesday and no tears were shed. I’m so thankful you read my blog 🙂
Last November I posted about my home office. My husband and I painted the room a nice, warm shade of red—merlot, I believe it was called—and we got an awesome desk from Pottery Barn. My office was cosy, warm, and a perfect place to spend my days. I was in love with my office…until summer came along.
Here are some pictures to refresh your memory in case you don’t want to click the link above:
I’m still drooling over my desk and the furniture I have in there, but I’m having a hard time wanting to actually be in there all the time and I think it’s because of the color of the walls. When we painted it, the weather outside was crisp and cool, and it got dark fairly early. But now, it’s beyond hot and sunny until around 8 pm. My office feels more like a cave and I have no desire to be in there, because it makes me sleepy and not very productive. Instead, I’ve been working in my kitchen:
I’d hate to repaint the office, but I don’t know what else to do to not make it so dark. I already have several lights, but they don’t help much. Do you have any suggestions? If I were to repaint it, what color should I go with? Keep in mind that my desk and furniture are an espresso color and the trimming (baseboards, doors, etc.) are a light brown.
