This past spring I took my side hustle full-time and rebranded my company to Copy Uncorked. Which meant, I needed an official home office space!
I wanted to make our spare bedroom feel as unlike a spare bedroom as possible so it would be somewhere I felt inspired to work in each day.
This is key when you spend so much time at home if you ask me!
Copy Uncorked is wine-themed, so picture rustic but modern wineries, rolling hills covered with vineyards, and your favorite restaurant patio to grab a golden hour glass of wine. That’s what I was going for.
So I knew I wanted to stay “on-brand” and go with neutrals with greenery, light wood, brass, marble and black metal accents.
I’m so happy with how it turned out and am sharing all of the products, paint colors, furniture pieces, and more below!
We went from flat white walls to navy feature walls with a nice, cool gray to hours of painting to cover it up once I knew I had the room to myself. Once Connor was back to working out of the house, I knew I wanted something brighter, so I dove into perusing white paint colors.
I’m somehow able to know pretty quickly what colors I’m feeling and narrowed it down to Benjamin Moore’s White Dove and Swiss Coffee, and ultimately chose Swiss Coffee for its creamy warmth that felt rustic but sophisticated.
Rug & Poufs
I realllly wanted to get rid of the carpet but after getting a quote for the flooring we have downstairs, it just didn’t seem like the most worthwhile investment since this isn’t our forever home. It may have even broken up the flow of the upstairs too much.
SO, I opted for this blush & green toned flatweave rug from World Market, that believe it or not it’s called the Napa Rug! 🙂 The colors are perfect.
Two of these rattan poufs from IKEA (literally) rounded out the rest of the floor space!
This gold pendant light was a great price for the value and a perfect match to my gold chair. It makes such a statement when you first walk in the room and gives it a unique modern rustic feel!
My desk lamp gives me a little bit of extra &/or softer light and is from Houzz.
Next was covering those freshly painted walls with some artwork. The first thing I did was order this amazing logo sign from Grainwell. I’d been admiring their work for a while and it was honestly what made my know I wanted to pain the walls from navy to white.
I saw it as a forever purchase and something to really boost the brand feel. It makes the space!
Next, I created a print design using the custom, branded illustrations I had designed along with the rest of my branding by Drop Cap Design. I loved them so much, I wanted them to live somewhere offline, too. So I designed and printed it via Canva and put it in a basic Ikea frame. The whole thing cost me under $20 and it’s one of my favorite pieces.
I also had my eye on these two pieces by Minted (here and here), and felt like they had the perfect coloring and aesthetic to continue tying it all together. Minted’s artwork is beautiful…and pricey, so I just ordered the prints and found less expensive frames from Home Goods to put them in.
My “For Reál” print is just fun and was a no brainer order from Wilde House Paper. Her stuff is all the heart eyes.
I still wanted to play off of the ‘uncorked’ feel even more, by adding a big cork accent wall to display client projects and my latest inspiration, vision, and mood boards. But I’m kind of running out of wall space! We’ll see.
I knew I wanted a big, white minimalist desk that didn’t totally break the bank. A 60″ desk is a minimum for me because of my big Mac computer and all the client papers and notebooks I constantly have around me. I love the desk and chair I ultimately found here and here.
I also found these look-for-less accent chairs that I love from Target which are super comfy and do the trick!
This accent table from World Market is such great quality and feels like a modern but timeless piece.
The bar cart is an older one from Target that I could no longer find, but they have plenty of other great and affordable ones!
Lastly, I love this nice big, light wood-toned bookshelf that’s perfect for ample styling!
The little touches throughout were things like some older coupe champagne glasses and a rattan basket from World Market, a faux olive tree placed in a basket, styling pieces from McGee & Co. like this asterick, a mini-hat wall, and plenty of office supplies from Stil Classics.
I hope this inspires you to create a space of your own you love! If you’re a blogger, brand manager, business owner, or creative entrepreneur, come hang out over at Copy Uncorked!
