potomac office musings.

Hello, Friday readers and fellow Pinterest enthusiasts! I wanted to share with you my inspiration behind my office space. I’ve never had an office outside of my home before, so this was a new venture for me. The space that I’m renting is full of character. It has original hardwood floors, thick baseboards, high ceilings, and crystal doorknobs. In addition, given that PTP is primarily an antique store, I had no other choice but to keep with a more vintage theme. However, I’m trying to appeal to a more masculine market, so I didn’t want doilys and other kitschy vintage items laying around. In the end I aimed for what Potomac has always instilled in my mind, images of the outdoors, the rugged, the folksy, and the imperfect, all combined in earth tones.

These are my office musings photographs:
