I’m trying to think of a clever name for the study room that will become my office during medical school but nothing has hit me yet.
Here it is! The official before pictures. You’ll see it evolve more and more starting when I get back to Tulsa after graduation (10 days 21 hours and 39 minutes from now), but who’s counting?
Right now the room serves as a guest bedroom, game room, craft room, and storage closet.
First order of business will be to get rid of the junk (including the pac man machine) and condense the closet.
Next, we will restore, build, or buy furniture and put my desk in and make it functional as an office.
It will still serve as a guest bedroom when my girls come to visit! So the bed stays.
Lastly will be setting the mood and prettying it up to be an inspiring, productive space for use throughout medical school!
I have big plans for this room.
I’m going with a soft color palate of teal and beige with pops of salmon. I’m looking for a lot of natural textiles like raw wood, burlap, sea glass and plant-y things. The bedspread, I want neutral and vintage. Lamps, lights, and chair can be sort of industrial. The art I want to be animal, plant or anatomy/medical inspired. I also want to incorporate a comfortable reading area with twinkle lights somehow.
I can’t wait to see how it turns out and update you guys on the process.
*A lot of these images (especially paint colors) I got from Young House Love. The sawhorse desk is something I made. I found the vintage medical posters on pinterest. Other places I looked grabbed pictures from include Ikea, Target, West Elm, and Etsy. If you need a specific source let me know! I’m not trying to copy someone else without crediting them.
