My Home Office Update

There are a few things that can truly elevate a space when it comes to home decor. One of them is quality window treatments (the other two I’d argue are lighting and millwork/trimwork). 

When we moved into our home last May, every room had white faux wood blinds complete with long tangled strings, including the windows in my office. 


Above is a friendly reminder of what the space looked like when I first came to tour the home.


Restaining the floors was the first step. Getting organized and finding a more comfortable desk chair was the second step. And now, last week the professional installer from Calico came over to hang my new roman shades, and I am elated with how they turned out. The whole process was so easy and fun.

It began about a month ago or so; I went to my local Calico location and worked with a designer who pulled fabrics for me based on what I told her I wanted. I had already planned on adding a large scale floral wallpaper to the top half of the walls (I brought a sample with me), so I wanted a smaller scale, geometric pattern to balance it. We found this neutral pinstripe linen* in one of the fabric sample books and I immediately fell in love. 

I love the look, the functionality, and truly, how they elevate the space. Not to mention I am thrilled with how easy and streamlined the whole process was. I never had to pull out a measuring tape–the professional installer came and did all of that including install!

Fabric is called Monomoy Striped Fabric – Linen 11 Stone in Gray/Silver.



They open and close so easily–not all shades do. I’ve had some before that get stuck or the chain gets tangled. These glide perfectly.

The window above my desk gets blasted with afternoon light so I’m really happy that this blocks the bright rays while still letting light through.

They have thousands of fabrics to choose from and locations nationwide. Plus Calico is running a window treatment sale right now! I’m actually going to be ordering matching shades for the French doors in my office to block the kiddos from seeing me.

You can schedule an appointment here or schedule a measure!
