THE BLACK & WHITE OF WORKING AT HOME!

home office with a black desk lamp, black and white striped vase holding flowers, a white monogrammed N mug holding black pen, with a quote about finding the time in a white frame

A cute black and white home office. Right?

I found it on Norweigan blog Stylizimo.  Such a cute blog created by a 30 something year old Norweigan stylist/designer.

The clear two toned color scheme makes the space crisp and clean. Easy to think big in this cute little organized work area.

The Eames molded chairs are a great style addition. I also like all of the framed typography prints, striped black and white upholstered bench, the DIY deer head with antlers taped onto the wall, and the chalkboard calendar.  Notice how a few sprigs of dry wheat grass on the desk subtly compliment the wicker wastebasket.  Small touches and details throughout that really work.

What do you think of this little home office?  Any tips you can share about your own home office design?  Please comment below.

Happy Wednesday!

P.S.  Went a cute b-day party for AG...her husband TG planned it.  Got a quick chance to catch up with AS and JH there too.  Lots of funny stories told. :-)

P.P.S.  Good news!  I had mentioned a few weeks back that an entertainment company (a cable network) was thinking of buying COCOCOZY Throws for their corporate gifting.  Well some good news!  They just placed the order yesterday.  Now we are in full on production mode.

P.P.P.S. Finally found the light fixture we are buying for COCOCOZY HQ in Beverly Hills. I love calling our small two room space headquarters...there is an element of irony to it. Anyhoooo...our HQ is going to have quite a cute chandelier in the front room. CM is ordering it today! Wooohoooo!!!! It will come in about 4-6 weeks. The HQ decorating is taking forever because we keep getting sidetracked. We moved in mid May and waited 12 weeks for our main pieces, now we are on a slow but sure mission to fill in the office decor details. Hmmmmm...maybe this black and white theme would work at COCOCOZY HQ too. Will share pictures of the progress soon.

  2. I would call it HQ too if I were you! (there was a lot of rhyming in that sentence...)

    As for the pics, I am loving the "Home Sweet Home" in the last one.. totally DIY-worthy.

  7. In my office, I have rolls washi tape around. It's great for sticking papers/reminders on the wall without destroying the paint! Another must is baskets for magazines. I have three Ikea magazine racks line up around the room. Finally, a good chair- away from your computer, for pondering, curling up and reading.
