This home office entry comes from one of my favorite bloggers, Erin Loechner from Design for Mankind. Every week Erin introduces readers to the works of new and amazing artists through her blog. She also produces Mankind Mag, an e-zine chocked full of design inspiration. It is such a treat to get a peek into the space where Erin makes it all happen.
My inspiration for this office was oddly enough a pair of file folders that I spotted at a local boutique. I adore a black and white color scheme and for me, the easiest way to stick to a budget is to build from color. Black and white are easy colors to find, so the majority of my decor and supplies were found at local thrift shoppes and spray-painted to match the rest! My favorite find? A Rainbow Brite pencil holder that I spray-painted black and removed the rainbow, so now I have the most lovely black and glamorous horse statue!
Simple, classic, and very chic, Erin’s office space shows that with some creativity and a little DIY ingenuity, you can create an office space that is both functional and beautiful. Some of my favorite elements in Erin’s office include the black goblet used to hold pens and pencils, those fabulous file folders, and a mailbox that’s been brought indoors to keep letters and papers out of the way. Genius! Thank you so much for sharing Erin!
