Getting Somewhere

So, it’s been a while.  Life gets busy this time of year.  We can all relate to that.

I think we last left off in the office.  Here’s a reminder where we started off…

Office2

We painted it Retro Avocado.  Since then we have added a few things that are really making the room come alive.  I’m only going to show you one side of the room today, since well, I’m too lazy to clean the other side of the room.

First, you might notice the amazing blue carpet.  It was a $25 Goodwill find.  In a way, it’s Oscar’s little brother.  We are calling him Zoot, after the saxophone player in Electric Mayhem.  It’s a 9×7′ shag rug made up of blue and green yarn.  The couch is an amazing find that we picked up at Rocket City Retro.  Since the color of the couch and wall color are pretty close to being the same, we knew we needed something to break up all the green.

Etsy to the rescue.

They turned out perfectly!  Now, we can’t close them for privacy since they aren’t wide enough, but we can always add plain white or yellow panels to the rod if we decide we ever want privacy.  Since it’s just an office, privacy isn’t really big concern.  I personally love how the greens from outside just blend right in with the greens on the inside.

We ordered the pillow from Urban Outfitters.  It was the perfect yellow color.

The other side of the room looks awesome.  You will just have to take my word for it until I get off my lazy, I don’t want to do anything because it’s Christmas time butt (not to be confused with my lazy, I don’t want to do anything because it’s thanksgiving butt) and clean it up so I can get some pictures.

Overall we are loving all of the color.  So much happier.
