Working from home has always been a dream of mine and an extension of that dream was to have my own home office.

A space where I could be alone with my thoughts, explore my creativity and of course, work.

While the dream of working from work arrived, my home office came much, much later.

Our master bedroom was large enough to have my work desk so that' s where my office also was. Then, as we prepared one of the guest bedrooms to become my office, we found out we were pregnant with our first child so instead of planning a home office, we started planning a nursery.

But baby number four is getting close to two years old and she was finally ready to share the room with her big sister which meant I could start my office planning again.

And so I did!

See how the nursery looked like before the transformation here in this blog article and then watch the home office final result right here.

Gold and white home office transformation

Considering the room is rather small, I wanted to go with all white so it felt airy, spacious but also bright so we painted all the walls white.

The city of New York was the theme I chose for the room because New York is the place where dreams come true, it's the place where people achieve their business goals but also the face of the United States is so many ways.

But I wanted the detail colors to be gold and throw a few tones of pink here and there, hence why the photos all have a pink vibrance. It was my way of incorporating pink without overwhelming the gold.

The final touch for me is always adding green. It's impressive on how much a plant can spruce up and pick up the vibe of an entire room and for this space I added a few green plants here and there but also couldn't leave out white and pink flowers to add elegance.

Most of the furniture are white because I wanted to keep the room light and not overwhelm it with different colors.

I am the type of person that too many colors can easily overwhelm me and it becomes hard to think and concentrate in a colorful environment. It's almost as if a colorful place is meant for activity and movement and my brain only understands that concept.

Home office budget friendly finds and reusing what you have.

More than just beautiful and functional, I also wanted to keep this room budget friendly so I chose pieces that could reflect the exact message I was trying to convey but that also didn't cost me my eyes.

I went searching on Amazon, Facebook marketplace and my own home for items that would be a great addition to the new home office.

Most of the items were bought from Amazon with the exception of a few items such as the faux tree, the flowers in vases, the mirrored gold table, the white and gold boxes, shelves and the paper holder/office organizer.

The pictures were all designed on Canva and I printed them out at CVS. I got the prints for super cheap as they were having a huge sale on prints at that time.

My favorite piece in the entire office has to be the arched mirror. I have been wanting one of these for quite some time but I just wasn't willing to pay the hundred of dollars I was seeing on sale for but patience is key for everything.

I finally found this mirror on sale on Amazon and paid under $160 for this beauty. I positioned the mirror in the corned of the room against the window so it could reflect more light, making the room feel bigger and also brighter.

Some items had to be painted, like the suspension bridge bookends ,the picture frames, the chair and the phone holder and I used a gold metallic color to paint them.

Here's everything I found for the home office on Amazon :

I also got my cranberry hibiscus at Echo in Ft. Myers over 13 years ago and I love that they still pop up in my yard. I've been trying to find the exact macros this plant provides to your diet but all I ever come up with is info on either the tea or the flowers. I use the leaves in my salads daily when its growing fresh in my yard. I do prefer the smaller leaves for salad. Any additional info you may have is appreciated!
