What inspired us in the office overhaul?
The basis of our inspiration was something along the lines of this awesome built-in by Thrifty Decor Chick.
Since we were giving 5 rooms an overhaul in 5 days, we knew we needed to find ways to speed things up. Using stock cabinets and building from there seemed like a great way to achieve that! I also love how all the rooms are different but they tie in together so well.
We loved this T desk but also loved the idea of a bar height desk for the front reception room.
We also used this inspiration for the group office. Thankfully before we started on our 5 day blitz, Adam (one of the awesome guys in Manhattan) built in the desk similar to this one. It has 3 workspaces and looks like it will be super efficient.
Anyway… This is kind of the direction we wanted to go… More details will follow room-by-room! 🙂

So my last good week before I dropped into the pit we call first trimester, we worked on pretty much my favorite project ever.
And I fully acknowledge I say that phrase often declaring this or that project my favorite project ever… But this time it really was! And I’m fairly certain it will stay my favorite project for quite some time!
Sam’s boss (also our awesome friend) went on vacation and since he was gone, we (and when I say we, I mostly mean his wife Emily) brainstormed on how to do a week-long remodel of their office they had recently rented.
So for weeks, together we talked… compiled inspiration pictures… drew up plans… All in secret.
We had 5 rooms to complete in about 5 days. Thank goodness we had lots of help! A couple of the guys that also work for the same company in Manhattan put in a ton of work on it and we even recruited some other friends and family to paint, etc…
It was awesome!
And totally felt like we were doing a HGTV show! Ha! Time crunch… Lots of help… Total overhaul on a space… 🙂
Anyway… On to the pictures! I’ll give more details later! 🙂
See what I mean??!
How’s that for a title that will make you nervous?? Ha!!!
No actually, that just happens to be the subject I posted on my personal Facebook this week! 😉
Apparently she didn’t take the news of her eviction notice well.
“Dear Miss Emma Lyon,
We now inform you that you are required to vacate the premises. (AKA: Your crib) All belongings must be removed within 28 weeks as the new tenant will be arriving on or around March 23, 2015.
Thank you for your cooperation.
And so yes! We are getting ready to do this whole baby thing again!!! More details will follow soon *hopefully!* now that I’m close to 2nd trimester and feeling human a bit more often now! Ha!
And since I’ve gotta leave you with a happier picture than that last one of Emma, here you go! 🙂
LOVE this girl!
