When my dad was preparing to retire this past winter, we chatted about making over their home office since he would be purging over 25 years of office "stuff."

Of course when your parents ask you to help them design a space in their home, you say yes!

I'm going to let the photos speak for themselves. My parents emphasized that they wanted their memories to be a focal point in this joint office. I made sure to include many of the items they've curated throughout their travels along with sentimental items like their wedding album.

We were able to transform this room on a fairly small budget too! I repurposed a lot of things my parents' already owned and hold memories for them such as my grandmother's chair, the drop leaf table, and even their old filing cabinet which my mom painted blue to match the built ins. It looks incredible!

I also had the privilege to work with some wonderful brands who generously gifted some crucial elements of this space. Thank you so much for being such a pleasure to work with!
