Office Update

If you follow me on Instagram, you might've have already caught wind of the fact that I've been giving my office a much-needed facelift. It's the room that I spend the most time in and it desperately needed to function better. For too many moons there was no effective storage in the space. After listing out my wants and needs, I tinkered with unit design. And finally after working on the project for months (in the start-stop fashion that I do everything at Chez Knight these days),  I had a cabinet unit installed at the end of May. Shortly thereafter it was lacquered and Thibaut's Etosha wallpaper went up. The lacquer was color-matched to the wallpaper so I don't have a formula name/code to provide. Here's a look at the current state:

This shot shows a bit of my organized chaos...

Also, I got my battered old Eames Time Life chair recovered in a Quadrille design that was printed on Perennials indoor/outdoor fabric...

I'm also having a massive custom desk built (that will be over 7' long) and I can't wait to get that into the room. My current desk is a hand-me-down from my parents and it just doesn't offer enough desktop space. I need to be able to spread out the samples, plans, and paperwork that consistently litter my world. SO excited to get my desk...hopefully it will be ready next week.

Other factors that I'm still figuring out are the hardware, artwork, rug and lighting. I'll drill down on those things in another post though so this one doesn't drag on and on.

So, that's where I am with my half-baked office! What do you think so far?


  1. It looks fabulous! I absolutely love love love the wallpaper!!

  2. Wow!! Looks awesome! Dying over that wallpaper.

    Did you ever post pictures of your bathroom reno? I've been following along since the beginning and don't recall ever seeing "after" pictures.

    Anyway, love everything about your house!

  6. Stunning! Love the cabinetry, and that chair is to-die-for! The fabric is perfection, but most Q fabric is ;) This is going to be a dream space to work in!

  7. Fabulous! Who do you use for re-upholstery. I recently inherited some vintage pieces and need a good D/FW recommendation.

  8. So beautiful!

  9. Ok...got the name of the paper!! ha!! Love your office and your chair!!

  10. Can you explain printing the Quadrille fabric on Perrials. I've used both before but can't figure out how one would combine the two or print on another. Thanks! eloisesoutahrd@gmail.com
