Inspiration: Calming Blue Walls in Home Office

Inspiration: Calming Blue Walls in Home Office

Found on ATSF, this adorable home office/craft station in Leah's new dining room. The desk is West Elm's white Parsons (also found in Victoria's house), the vintage tulip-style chair was found on eBay, and that's an IKEA Grundtal rail and Asker containers holding corral scissors, rulers, pens and pencils, paperclips, and other supplies.

We love the color of the room. Leah explains on her blog that the room used to be a dark crimson red. It took two coats of gray-tinted primer to fully cover the red. They then used a paint mixed to match Benjamin Moore's Sonoma Skies. The paint ended up too bright on the walls, so they added equal parts of white paint to dim it down.

This just shows you that a little color in your home office can really make a difference.
More examples of great use of color in home offices can be found here.
