Office Inspiration

Now that I’m working from home so much, I can’t help but get an itch to redo my workspace. My current ‘office’ was pretty much the house catch all room until I started working in there. I need to start from scratch to build my dream office space. First I cleared out all of the junk and now I am left with a large open space with tons of potential. I have started looking around for ideas and furnishings that would be appropriate for my space. Viewing some of the items they have over on sites similar to Office Monster and other suppliers is certainly getting me in the mood to complete my office set-up ready for work!

I think it’s important that I’m able to create an office that will allow me to be productive. Of course, making sure it looks good is also one of my main priorities, but if it’s not going to allow me to work properly and to achieve all my targets, then why the need for me to redecorate in the first place? I want a space that allows me to enjoy my work, and find the best furniture on the market, such as these bookshelves from somewhere like, will allow me to do this. I can’t even begin to tell you how I have always wanted to have bookshelves in my very own work environment and now I have the perfect opportunity so I’m going to make the most of this renovation while I can. Unfortunately, finding bookshelves is just the start of my journey.

Next thing, what can someone do in their spare time, one medium can be a TV with a free player to watch shows and sports, another might be sitting and reading some books. Now I’m thinking about looking for chairs, which are as comfortable as the ones in my previous office. And I have a feeling that if I don’t think about it now, I’ll start having back pain very soon. I’ve put a few heavy duty office chairs on my wish list for myself, and I’m thinking about purchasing one soon. But first, I need to set up some other things.

I searched the web for inspiration and I fell in love with this design pictured below, which I think might be Kris Jenner’s office but I am not certain. I love the rich color and mix of prints and textures. It is luxurious without being gaudy. I already ordered this chair and I love how it is comfy and not too modern like most office chairs. My desk is a lot more modern, so it is a nice contrast. The walls are going to be either black, navy, or dark grey.

That’s all I’ve got so far but I will keep you posted on my progress!

These days my little Adam is obsessed with puzzles and he is much better than I am – by far. He also likes to read to me, and he makes up the story line randomly – it is hilarious. One book, each page was about playing outside and swimming – I think he was trying to give me a hint…haha.

Last week we took a quick trip to escape the snow for some sunshine in Key Largo, Florida☀️ We spent every moment possible outside, Tom and Adam got their Scuba Diver PADI certification (yay!) while Sophia and I spent our days either swimming or drawing marine life and landscapes. This was my first trip after my sister passed last November, and even though I look so happy here, there were so many moments I felt the grief and sadness, as if it happened just yesterday. I am still figuring out how I want to show up in this space, as I have changed so much as a person since the loss. I just don’t feel called to post some of the things I shared before. Maybe that will change someday, or maybe it will just naturally evolve into something new. I think I will take this year to just process it all. (Even the idea of taking an entire year to think through something is a huge shift for my usually hyperactive type A personality) My focus at the moment is just living in the moment with my family and friends, spending time doing things that make me happy and healthy. I hope to share some of that journey here with you ~ thanks for following along ❤️
I had planned to shoot this outfit in collaboration with @lenacoutureofficial right before my dear sister passed away. Saba, the designer, was more than understanding if I didn’t want to anymore - but after thinking on it for a while I decided I wanted to - in my sister’s honor 💗 She was always my biggest hype woman. When i would feel like I’m not good enough or that I should quit (which was often) she would tell me I was unique and great and to keep it up. When I think of my sister, beauty and love is all that she embodied in her being. She expressed that on the outside also - as she loved to wear everything glam, bright & colorful, and full of bling. Hair done, nails done, everything did - that was Nusrat. For this shoot I took the time to get glam after a long hiatus - and makeup and hair took so long because I think I forgot how to do it, but afterwards I was surprised how I felt transformed. When I wore this gorgeous outfit that I know was designed with such love and incredible attention to detail by @lenacoutureofficial, I felt all of that beauty - like a walking piece of art, and very much at peace. Thank you so much to @divmophoto for capturing the feeling so well 💕
Ski weekend with my favorites ❄️❄️ So proud of Sophia for skiing on her own for the first time!
There are some trees with seeds that only grow after a fire. Their seeds are completely sealed with a resin that have to be physically melted off by a great fire in order to propagate. So to do we as humans, gain wisdom only after great pain and suffering.*
A month ago (and one day) I lost my sister and best friend to cancer. I am still completely gutted and broken. But, I’m also so so grateful to have had felt the love that now brings me so much heartbreak. ❤️ I am so inspired by her - and I will forever live my life to honor her memory. Miss you sis ❤️

Cozy for a coffee date ☕️
French. Toast. Egg. Bake. Save this recipe for a weekend or holiday brunch - it’s SO good and fool-proof! I’m not even a sweet person and I love it. The pecans are a non-negotiable IMO - I get honey bourbon vanilla pecans for this and it is just heavenly. Enjoy!
