Hey everyone – sorry we’ve been so MIA lately. Things have just been so busy (which is so great) but we’ve been missing you! To give you a little recap of what has been going down lately we have been getting ready to film a video for the front page of our website explaining exactly what we do over here at anewall and why we love to do it. Soooo excited! Anyways, we were in dire need of an office makeover before filming the video and wanted to share with you what we’ve done! It’s nothing over the top or way dramatic. We’ve just added a few simple elements to our workspace that make it feel more like home and like a place we love to spend our time in. Let’s break the makeover down into 3 parts:
1. The Main Wall
On the main wall of the office (which has been bare all this time) we knew we wanted to put one of our murals up. Because our office has grey/green walls and we aren’t able to paint them at this time, we needed to choose a soft mural that would compliment them. We put up this light, textured tree mural we found. It’s the cutest and is definitely defined as the trendy, fun factor of our office. You can now purchase it from us here! We also knew we wanted to emphasize the name of our company in the makeover so we thought a cool nail art DIY was the way to go. OH man – we love it.
2. The Gallery Wall
We’ve been talking about doing a gallery wall for a while now. This does not need to be an expensive or difficult daunting task. In fact, we found it really easy. We thrifted some frames (about $2 – $4 dollars a piece) and sanded them down to remove their gaudy gold shine. The easiest way to figure out where to place your frames is to arrange them all on the floor first. Once you have an arrangement you like you can begin hanging them! We filled our frames with some of our favourite anewall prints: A Fox Hunt, Young Girl, The Stolen Kiss, Degas Dancers, Mary Countess and Jacob & Rachel.
3. The Desk Space
To keep things super simple for now, we have begun to create an inspiration board. It’s also a place to leave reminders and little notes to each other. Our favourite is the little munchkin on that postcard – she’s too cute!
I’m sure we will be adding more in time – but for now we hope we’ve given you some decorating inspiration!
