Makeover Monday: Bohemian Home Office

Happy Monday guys! I’m excited to bring you a brand new makeover today, and although I find myself saying this every week, I feel like this could possibly be my most favourite to date.

I did a poll on Twitter to see which room you’d like me to concentrate on and a whopping 46% of you said home office. The house I’d been eyeing up on Rightmove this month is this two-bed terrace priced at £145,000.

I actually made the decision earlier this month that this year is going to be the year I finally get on the property ladder, even speaking to a financial advisor about what my options are as a single, self-employed person. It turns out, it’s not just a pipedream, so I’m on “mission save as much as I can”, and by October, I hope to start looking.

In terms of what I’m searching for, something like this would be perfect – enough room to put my stamp on it, but nothing major structurally that needs changing (although I couldn’t not have a bath so this particular house would be a no-no).

The second bedroom in this property is certainly big enough for a home office – another requirement of mine – so I got to work creating an inspiring workspace.

As you can see from the moodboard, I wanted to go for a fun, bright space, with references to California. If you’ve ever seen my own home office makeover, you’ll see the vibe is very similar but as this isn’t a rental, I went to town with painting and flooring.

In every Makeover Monday I’ve created so far this year, I’ve gone with parquet flooring, but this grey oak engineered wood is beautiful and goes perfect with the softer tones in the room.

I wanted to create a feature wall and having already fallen in love with the simplicity of self-adhesive removable wallpaper, I decided to integrate it into this scheme.

The print of this wallpaper from Etsy is absolutely stunning and set the tone for the rest of the space, including taupe walls, and floor to ceiling pink velvet curtains from

In terms of furniture, I wanted a Scandinavian inspired desk so this white and ash design from Wayfair, while the blue velvet chair added a pop of colour.

The La Redoute rug gives the room warmth, while the gold shelving unit offers additional storage.

Finally, I replaced the doors at the end of the room with white, and added brass t-bar handles, tying in the other brass finishes such as the light fixture and desk lamp.

What do you think to this room? Is it a style you could go for? Remember, if you’re struggling with a room in your home and you’d like my help, I offer an affordable online interior e-design service which includes consultation, moodboards, floorplan, styling tips, and a handy digital shopping list so every stress (bar painting!) is taken away from you.
