Isn’t it ironic how little time we spend decorating our most frequently used spaces?  You know what I mean.  You spent months selecting a rug for the formal living room, and there it sits with vacuum marks from two years ago. Meanwhile, you spend your days in an office that doubles as a storage area, while sitting at […]

Like love handles and grey hair, collections have a way of popping up. Take my mother-in-law for example, she loves jam and jelly. As a result she buys more than she can possibly consume, so now she has a jelly collection that we lovingly refer to as her Jelly Museum. I collect striped ceramics. Here […]

It was love at first sight when I saw this office, designed by Ashley Whittaker, in the September 2012 issue of House Beautiful. Unfortunately, with grass cloth walls and custom cabinetry, it is a look that is completely out of my budget. I decided to recreate this office on a budget. I even made my […]

I have a hard time committing to a big project or taking big risks when it comes to decorating my office. When I’m in my office I’m working, not decorating.  I wanted to do something quick to change up the look.

Micro-trends sometimes don’t make it into office supplies, but with a little creativity you can find a way to incorporate those trends into your office decor.

I thought it would be fun to have a guest stylist. Nicole Crowder, of The Chestnut Orange, caught my eye several months back. I’m a sucker for great photography and this blog has it. I asked Nicole if she would be interested in an office makeover. The deal was that I would provide the products […]

[huge_it_slider id=”63″][spacer height=”20px”] Yes, yes, I’ve heard.  The Pantone color of the year is Tangerine Tango, shown below in case your internet has been down for the last few months and you have no idea what I’m talking about. But what does this mean???  Does it mean you need to incorporate this color into your […]

When I launched See Jane Work.com, in 2003, it was difficult to decorate a home office. Back then jobs were easy to come by, stylish office supplies were not. Sure you could spend your weekends at thrift and antique stores or your money at high-end retailers, but all that would get you is a nice […]

Changing your office decor is easier than you would think. If you’ve invested in quality neutral furniture, a simple change in artwork and accessories can give your office a completely different look. This home office was redecorated without even moving the furniture. I think you’ll agree, it looks completely different. I changed out the accessories and […]
