Closet and Office Makeover on a Budget
Lauren here from the lifestyle blog LaurenElyce.com to share how I transformed my boho office into a more grown up and sophisticated space.
Truth be told, I’ve been wanting to give my little office/closet a makeover for a while now. This was the first room we fully completed when we moved in a little over two years ago so it was about time for a mini refresh. Nothing major, but this space needed a new vibe.
Being bunkered down at home the past few months was the push I needed to finally take the plunge and make some changes.
I knew I wanted to drift away from the darker furniture pieces and boho accents and do more of a chic, modern vibe. This meant lighter furniture, cleaner textures and sprinkles of feminine inspired pieces.
The first piece I landed on was this desk. I was nervous about a white desk but the wood texture and gold accents scream sophistication. Paired with this light tan leather chair– I mean does it get any more boss lady?
Second up was this fun rug. I’ve always been a fan of the cowhide look. It feels really modern but also unique. I love the light color of this rug with the darker animal print/detail. Such a fun piece for my modern office!
One of my goals with the office refresh was to declutter and organize my clothes and accessories. I had way too much stuff so first up was getting rid of the double clothing racks. After sorting through my summer and fall/winter pieces, I was able to curate a more streamlined wardrobe and love how this clothing rack looks in the space.
I was also able to downsize the number of hangers and organizers in my closet and used these simple black bins to organize my shoes, purses, bags and scarves.
Speaking of organization, I also had a ton of gadgets and office supplies that sort of just lingered around my office before. This cool bench was the perfect solution! I love how chic and rustic it feels but still goes with the modern, upgraded look of the room.
Finally, I finished off the space with this slightly bohemian floor lamp because 1) I needed more light in the room and 2) well, it’s really really cute.
