Hello Savvy Southern Style friends! I'm Kimberly and you can usually find me blogging, reading or doing my "day job" from my favorite room, over at Serendipity Refined: my home office.
I work from home full time for a computer company and, when we built our home ten years ago, I carved out a space with southern exposure at the "quiet" end of the house. Who am I kidding? There's not really any quiet in our home. I live in a house full of men. I have two sons, a husband, and a yellow lab. There's always something going on...and I wouldn't have it any other way!
My office opens up to our living room on one side and to the kitchen and family room on the other. French doors make it easy to keep an eye on the chaos while having a little privacy to finish a conference call or chat with a friend.
I love the fact that my printer and office equipment are hidden in cabinets and that the window seat is actually five pull out drawers for files. The space doubles as a library of sorts and the shelves contain a collection of old favorites as well as books on every subject from Art History to Weaving.
This room is the one space in our home that's more "girly" but is still the eclectic same mix that makes our house our home. My office filled with flea market and thrift store finds like the side chairs and virtually everything that hangs on the walls; items that I've built, like the wall sized chalkboard and items that I've collected over the years: my mom's first camera, old alarm clocks and pieces of vintage architecture.
The window seat is a great spot to curl up with a book or a report that needs to be read but it's the arm chair (which used to belong to my great Grandparents) is my favorite spot. It has been used for reading stories to my sons, crocheting blankets and, on some days, if she's quick enough to get there before I do, you'll even find that Martha Stewart, our yellow lab, has claimed the seat for an afternoon nap.
As you're reading this, I'm probably sitting in this very room writing a post or checking my office mail and smiling... because you stopped by for a visit.
I hope that you had fun today and that you'll stop by Serendipity Refined to see what I'm up to. I love the company and I can promise that it's never boring.
Isn't that office fabulous? Wish I had one. Love the chalk board.
Now y'all are surely going to want to see more of her beautiful home so pop on over and say hi to Kimberly at Serendipity Refined.
