Our Home Office

As promised, we're going behind the double doors tonight.




I was so happy the day I found this unique print. A row of books...I love it!






"Rotary Phone" which is really a push-button phone, from Pottery Barn. I've seen a few of these on your sites too. It was so perfect for this room.














Down the hall, and looking up the stairs.

One December several years ago, I said to my husband, "Guess what Honey...my Christmas gift is sitting in the window of a little Shop on Main Street." You are now looking at the end of that story. Lucky me, happy me! : )
My amateur take, on decorating an office. Thanks for stopping by!

Wow, you did a GREAT job on your office/library/den. Very patriotic. I adore the picture of George Washington humbling himself to his knees and praying.

Love the smattering of antiques here and there too. Great job.

Blessings,

Sher

Take Care

What a great office! I love all the vintagey things as well as the presidential tidbits. I'm a book fiend, so I love that you have loads of books on the shelves and pictures of books. The picture at the top of your stairs is one that I have admired for a long time. The desk you have under it is just wonderful.

Thanks for the tour!

Your library looks great. I love the green desk! What a great hubby to buy that for you for Christmas.

I loooooooove that leather chair and everything else you did to your office! You really have a special niche for decorating. Your house should be in a home magazine-AND I'm not just saying that. You have real talent for putting things together.
I love your office-Perfect.
