Our Home: Home Office Slash Guest Room

Welcome to our beachin' aqua home office/guest room!



When we redid the living room and dining room, and lost some of our aqua ambiance, I knew that I wanted to keep the aqua/turquoise and beach theme going in our condo. So I brought it into the guest room/office.


Here are our "his" and "hers" desks.


Since the Mr. and I both travel around for work, we don't have real desks or offices at work, so our USC diplomas will hang in our home office until we get our corner corporate offices with a view.


But the view from our home office isn't too bad for now!

A close-up of his desk.


Judah loves to hang out on the top shelf above my desk while I work. I love him.


Here is the futon/guest bed. It's actually really comfortable!

The surf boards above the bed really add to the beachy flavor of the room. That cool, tall bookcase was a gift from our sweet neighbor, it's from West Elm.

And here are my file drawers, sewing machine, DIY cork board, and office closet.


You'll never guess what's inside that closet...

Our wine fridge!


Yup, 40 bottle of pure goodness in there! It didn't look good anywhere else, so for now, the wine is in the closet. I love condo living.



I'm so happy with the changes that we made to this room. To see how it looked before, go here!

wow that looks great! I love that color ~ right now that's our bedroom color, and our office is green. We also have his & hers desks, and a futon for guests. No wine fridge though! What a great idea :)

I've been wanting to spruce up our office because it's gotten pretty disorganized! Your space looks so nice and tidy. I think having a calm, clean space is really helpful to productivity, so I will have to work on ours soon!

The aqua wall are SO fun. I love them, although I don't think my hubby would let me paint our office that color! I am also a California girl, born & raised (although we are in Nor Cal)

The color of your office is almost the exact same color as mine! Great minds think alike. :D Thank you for stopping by Yoga Gal and leaving such a nice comment!
