Gentry House

Gentry Office Reveal

If you remember from this post about the original layout of the Gentry house, we added to the total square footage of the house by converting a large workshop area off the back of the garage into a new mudroom, family room and a fourth bedroom. Today we’re showing you how we staged this fourth bedroom as a home office! For the step by step process of how we decorated this space, don’t miss the stories in my highlights on my Instagram feed.

Loloi just launched a new line of beautiful rugs called the Porcia collection and they invited us to use one of these new rugs at the Gentry house. I was immediately drawn to the one we used here for the office (the color is Red/Beige) but truly the whole collection is stunning and I would have been excited to use any of the rugs here! The collection was design to give the dimensional look of mosaic tiles and I’ve never seen anything like it! It’s super unique. It almost gives the nubby, textural look of a jute or seagrass rug, but with the color and look of patterned rugs we all love so much!

It was so fun to roll out the rug in the space and be surprised to find subtle touches of some of my favorite colors in the rug – rust, peach, coral, olive navy, ivory, and black were all there! It made it really easy to pick the furniture for the staging! We started with this white metal desk that doesn’t make this small space feel too overstuffed with its open legs. The window is not centered in the room, so we knew we’d want a taller storage piece in the left corner to help draw the eye up. I love how this vintage rattan shelf brings out the warmer tones in the rug.

To bring some balance and height to other side of the room, we placed the AMAZING faux fiddle leaf + basket combo. It was a total steal at $129 and I couldn’t recommend it more!

The black leather chair was a lucky last minute find. I think every room should have at least a small touch of black. It adds contrast and acts like a punctuation mark in a room.  And how great is that gold X-brace on the legs of the chair?!

I wanted to bring in a few blue pieces into the room to help those blue parts of the Loloi rug to pop out even more. I LOVE our new indigo stripe pillows (coming soon!) on these super cute and affordable cerused oak arm chairs!

I also searched through my photo archives to see if there would be any good blue images to print out for this space. I found these two photos I took the last time I was in NYC. They felt perfect for the space as soon as I held the prints next to each other and saw the interesting contrast of colors and perspective and architectural styles. We just uploaded them into the print shop today too! You can check them both out here – SOHO print & ZIPPER print.

I love how that sun flare in the blue print pulls out some of the coral and peach undertones in the Loloi rug. I’m super happy with how this space came together. I know I’d love to work in this home office if the Gentry house were mine (and I’m still sort of wishing that is was!) :)
