Mrs. Jetplane's Future Home Office

Well Mr. left this morning for WA state and his survival training. He just called they had to divert for weather and are currently in Huntsville, AL. Luckily there are 5 of them heading out there with the same travel arrangements.
Cross your fingers they get there safe and sound.

Now onto the really important stuff.... my future home office. My job is letting me continue from home (at least that's the plan) and I need a fully dedicated home office to continue to be productive. That includes an 'adult' desk and a door...


My first home office out of college, when I was a sales rep for a well-known consumer product company, included a corner of my living/dining area that was directly next to my television. It wasn't so ideal but living in a 1 bedroom apt is never ideal when you get at least 5 boxes of 'crap' delivered to your house every day and you start telling them to just drop them over your balcony and onto your porch.

Here is one of my inspirations for my home office...


The room was found here. I've been dreaming of a turquoise room with white trim for forever.


I'm going with mostly white furniture however I do have to incorporate our already black bookshelves...us Jetplanes love us some books. These shelves are tall and substantial. So I think this good visual to see how the combo could look together.


Here is the desk, its from Target. I'm going to get a piece of plexi glass for the top of it.
Here is the chair, also from Target. I am trying to decide between the white and the black. There is also a lovely mint green color as well that I really love. The desk is white, but it could be a little off white, so I'm concerned about getting the white chair so I'm leaning toward the black, however I adore the mint green....

Anyone else work from home? Have any pointers?

LOVE your inspiration picture! I'm getting my first home office when I move in with my fiance/hubby in a few months. It's pretty fun picking out furniture and all the accessories! Can't wait to see your final product.

Love the inspiration room! The mint green might be fun against the right color of turquoise. Can't wait to see it all put together. {eventually. :)}

I get to decorate our home office soon and I can't wait. I love Pottery Barn and all the organization accessories they offer.

I love the turquoise. That picture with the zebra print rug is so fun.

I found that when I work from home (and this isn't decor related) I do best when I get up & get ready. Maybe not a full outfit, but definitely out of my pj's.

PS: I tagged you for a little fun on my blog if you want to play.

I love that Target desk! I am looking for a new desk as well (and love the storage on that one) but think I may need to spend a little less. I think that color scheme is great and can't wait to see what you come up with.

I asked my friend and she did get her desk from Target. It was awhile ago, but it is almost identical aside from the drawers. I think the desk is a great idea! I can't believe that we researched completely separately and our offices are coming out so similar! :)

Mrs JP I'm from Huntsville and work like 1 minute from the airport! Who knew that some of America's finest were just around the corner! LOVE your blog! I'm sure the home office will be faboulous no matter what - you have great taste!!!

Kate Craig said...

Love the turquoise walls.. but honestly, that chair looks really uncomfortable to me!

Mrs. Newlywed said...

I really like that desk!

Lucky in Love said...

How fantastic that they are letting you work from home! Great deal!

Hope your time away from your hubby goes quickly!

Sarah Ann said...

I'd say go with the black chair to bring in the color of the bookcases. You don't want them to be the only black furniture in the room or it might look odd. Good luck decorating, I can't wait to see pictures!

JP said...

Love the desk and wall color. A glass/plexiglass piece is a great idea!

J.J. said...

I saw that when she first posted photos of her home office! I thought it was way cool then! I love it! Can't wait to see what you do!
