Corner Office

by Cait

I was ridiculously excited last week when my backordered fabric arrived from about a month early.  I wasted no time in making three panels for the art room and while we were at Ikea this past weekend we bought clips to hang them.  I don’t know that I love the look of the clips, but I do enjoy not having to stand on a chair to open/close the curtains thanks to the fact that they slide easily.  (Ok, who am I kidding, I rarely opened the old curtains, I mainly left that task to Robert.)

As a quick reminder, here is the before.

Art Room

And the (hurriedly taken before the sun went down yesterday) afters.  (We’ll take better photos this weekend.)

The fabric we used is Premier Prints Suzani Slub Texture Yellow/White, and we like it so much that we’re using Premier Prints Suzani Chocolate/Natural in our bedroom.

Aside from the curtains, we are making very slow progress on this room.  We having painted the closet or started on the new closet desk (the hairpin legs arrived, but we couldn’t fit a 96 in counter top in a Beetle with three adults- go figure).  As far as what to do next, I’m thinking about having the metal side chair powder coated (it’s pretty rusty from living in my parents garage, and the idea of something tougher than spray paint is appealing), or picking/ordering a rug.  I recently found one on Overstock similar to the West Elm Ferris rug, but I think I’m still leaning towards jute or sisal…

    • Thanks Lisa! I’m pretty smitten with them and want to get the rest of the room done ASAP (although then I’ll want to quit my cube-job and work from home…)

  1. I’m loving the yellow! So bright and cheery!

  2. I love the curtains!!
    On the rug – have you checked out Rugs USA? I just bought a rug from them, it was 5×8 and only $132 with free shipping, I wasn’t expecting much, but the rug is Awesome!!
    This is the rug I got
    but they have a ton of other styles too!
    I would highly recommend looking there…

  3. SO pretty! I love the track you installed it on too. Simple + sleek!

  4. Also, on the site it looks flat – but in your photos, it seems like it has a little weight to it, maybe even a nice texture. Does it?

  5. GAH! I love them! Also, I just noticed that your desk chair is almost the same exact shape as the chairs I painted for our dining room. You have such good taste!

    • Aww thanks Sara! I love your dining chairs! Ours are from a moving neighbor’s trash a few months back. I spray painted and recovered them before Robert even got home, haha.

  6. I am loving the fabrics you have picked out. Im in the process of an office re-do myself. I also consider it my art/craft/jewelry making room too.
