Home Office Mood Board, Look One: Gilded Glam

Here is my first mock-up of ideas for my home office.  I took many of the elements I liked from my inspiration photos, and incorporated them here.

IKEA | Table tops & legs | VIKA system | VIKA GRUVAN/ VIKA FAGERLID |..., $169
Nate Berkus™ Handcrafted Hourglass Table at HSN.com, $150
The Furniture Market - Oak Furniture | French Furniture | Mirrored..., 169 GBP
Popular Paint Colors - Silhouette Grey - House Beautiful

Here we have a white desk and Expedit shelving from Ikea.  I like the clean lines of the desk, juxtaposed by the curvier lines of the upholstered chair.  I have fallen in love with this wall color called Silouette Grey by Fine Paints of Europe-although I will find a color match at a brand available at Home Depot if I do use the color.  Last, I love this little side table by Nate Berkus for HSN to add a bit more glam to the space.

Ballard Designs/ For visual only, $149
Nate Berkus™ Dhurrie Rug with 3" Fringe - 8' x 10' at HSN.com, $400
COLOR PENCIL AND BRASS HOLDER SET | tabletop | accessories | Jayson..., $65
Graphic Image Gusseted Envelope, $68
Lasso Desk Lamp Black, $30
The Great Gatsby (Penguin Hardback Classics): Amazon.co.uk: F. Scott..., 9.74 GBP

My favorite part!  I am definitely an accessories girl in all aspects.  I would like to anchor the room with the great chevron rug, also from Nate Berkus.  I love the shape of the bulletin boards from Ballard, and would like two side by side just like in the photo, to put directly above the desk.  The rest of the accessories are just icing on the cake!

So what do you think?  Do you like this look?  I will be working on more looks too, and maybe we will do a little vote at the end.  That would be fun.  I probably won't be purchasing everything from this list (or the others I create)-budget is slim, so there will be lots of DIY/make do with something similar I can find second hand.  But that is what makes it fun in my eyes!
