You know how you set out to do one thing and all of a sudden you jump to something else?
(I did straighten it up though)
Well, that's exactly what happened the day I planned to vignette my son's bedroom.
Somehow I ended up in my den/office, which had become a catchall for the art and accessories that I've been collecting for the shop.
The bookshelves needed a good pruning, so I weeded out a fair amount, and then re-organized and refreshed them.
As you can see it's a pretty busy room.
The walls and sofa are upholstered in toile fabric
and the bookcase is mirrored so there is a lot going on.
We turned the former bedroom closet into a built in desk and skirted it.
I took the opportunity to de-clutter my desk so my mind would in turn be less cluttered.
Directly across from the desk is a window which looks out to the front of the house.
We built in a window seat with 4 drawers to hold files which functions beautifully and has kept paperwork at bay.

This is the view directly across from the sofa which is in front of the mirrored bookcase.
We keep extra supplies in the french marquetry dresser that I recently found and swapped out.
I placed a pair of catchall baskets near my desk to corral potential clutter!
Now, more than ever it is important that when I enter this room it's clutter free and organized so I feel energized to deal with all the things I have on my plate.
Every time I come in here I feel like I can breathe and it feels great!
