One thing I knew I needed in my house was a pink room.
Considering J starts to have an allergic reaction anytime he sees anything “too girly,” I knew I was going to need to confine this to a space he wouldn’t go in. Considering I can’t accessorize a laundry room, making an office was the next best thing.
I bought this cowhide rug at a Black Friday event a few years ago and couldn’t wait to find a home for it. Paired with my college furniture (thanks mom for investing in nice stuff!) and some of my favorite girlie things (ie. jeweled necklaces, framed birthday cards – I have put together a room made for blogging (or answering emails, while catching up on Real Housewives episodes).
Because our master bedroom only has one closet, J and I are using our offices as extensions of our closets – so… I moved my dresses and shoes into my cotton candy colored corner of the house.
While I love clothes and getting dressed, and I’ve really been trying to take Marie Kondo’s advice and get rid of anything that doesn’t bring me joy. Embarrassingly I’ve learned that black (particularly in the form of dresses and pants) brings me a lot of joy… but how could it not – it’s slimming!
