The bonus room is a split space of my home office and my daughters' play area. It needed a clear separation.
Here is some inspiration behind the style and accents I wanted to incorporate. It is always good to have a mood board.

I started on the back wall, completing a mauve arch design, and palm leaf stencils around it.
Got everything cleaned out, then
I built an L desk out of thrift store doors and PVC pipe!
I designed an accent moment where I intended to place a plain white fling cabinet with open shelves, to give it a brighter pop.
I decided to add jute rope to the desk legs to offset so much white in the office space.
From pitiful to palm leaf paradise!
This project was done on a MAJOR budget. I used a lot of materials I already had or found at thrift shops.
I know this space will change as I do, but I feel inspired to go to work and create in this space now.
