Today I’m really excited to share with you, my home office makeover. Being able to work from home is a luxury that is not lost on me. I feel quite lucky to avoid the commute and besides, “office hours” are tough to enforce when you’re a Wedding Planner, so it’s nice to have my files handy all the time.
When designing the space, I was going for a feminine and sophisticated vibe that would inspire productivity and creativity. It needed to be a place where I can invite clients over too. I’m beyond thrilled with how it has turned out, let’s take a look.
My certificate from Mount Royal University for Wedding and Event Planning displays my full name but I thought I’d share photos of these two at least.
I picked up this white shelving unit because it’s exactly what I was looking for. Binders for client files, processes and business docs are all at my finger tips, but I also need to be able to store ugly things like toner cartridges and office supplies out of sight.
The textured, fluffy dots on these curtains were calling my name, and I got them at Winners for a killer deal.
Pretty champagne gold day planners from previous years are nice to hold on to. I’m pretty particular about the page format of my day planners, so that’s my priority. If possible though, I try to find a champagne gold one to match my colour scheme.
Speaking of champagne gold, I’m saving a couple gold bottles of prosecco for a special occasion. For my bday recently, a good friend gave me that bottle of Gigglewater and “Let’s Get Fizzical”. It’s a prosecco cocktail recipe book I’m LIVING for these, obvi!… Oh, and a Wedding Planner’s bff; Emily Post.
This little guy is actually a piggy bank, but I don’t use him for that, he just made me smile.
I’ve got to have my dual monitors for all the floor plans and large spreadsheets that I work with. Yup, there’s my external hard-drive too. Planners are big on risk management- we always have a plan B, and a plan C.
For all the mood boards, floor plans and timelines that need printing, I’ve got to have a quality printer. This one’s got an app for easy wireless printing from my cell phone. If you’re interested, I reviewed it here.
… and lastly, here is where I keep my wedding day Emergency Kit, which I’ll let you have a peak inside of next time.
Well, that’s the grand tour. I love how it turned out bright, cheery so I feel motivated and inspired in here. I hope you’re as smitten with it as I am! Maybe you’re ready to tackle your own home office makeover now?
