One Room Challenge Week 5

Alright, one more week until the final reveal of this office makeover! Projects have been ongoing and I’m wracking my brains constantly with what I’m missing so I can get-er-done before I shoot (with a camera) the whole thing this weekend! I have to maximize my time with the natural lighting in the room, so I’ll be getting up early, pumping in some quality caffeine (Starbucks French Roast with vanilla creamer), and setting the scenes!

One Room Challenge put on by Calling It Home!

Here’s a recap of the process so far plus some details.. (I’m being a total reveal Scrooge I know so I’ll try to humor you here with these sneak peaks and thoughts.)

First the initial mood board. One Room Challenge: Industrial Modern Office Makeover

This has been a GREAT challenge of a board for me! To the extent when my husband eventually would say, “you want to make what today?” And I could reply, “It’s on my inspiration board!” (Which clearly means I’m 100% committed and there’s no rhyme or reason that could pull me off course. But really, actually, truthfully, he’s the best and has helped make parts of this room a reality.

The office color scheme I had chosen was almost spot on. I gave up the leather and gray, but kept the



and added a little blush.

Organization has been key and I’ve tried to keep it minimal and functional.


With minimal sometimes being a little serious,  I’ve been working on projects to add my own creative flare. These were my inspiration…

So here’s to taking this

Petite Modern Life

I'm Karisa. I live just outside of Seattle with my husband Michael {Mr. G}, our two cats, Rue and Archimedes, and our new Australian Shepherd pup in crime, Moose. We are do-it-yourself enthusiasts. I'm the dreamer, he's the strategist, and teamed up we get it done. In January 2014 we purchased our first house! The many adventures of remodeling, decorating, and inevitable redecorating will be documented here. I was born and raised in the PNW & I love the PNW life. Mountains, lakes, rivers, ocean, trees, rain, and sun: every sight & season has its own flavor & tune. It inspires in me activity, coziness, and sprees of creativity. I'm rather obsessed with white paint, natural light, homemade pizza, and a glass of red wine.
