I love the wallpaper, but it certainly wouldn't help you to focus on tasks! Light colours and a less busy pattern would be better for a home office. If you like purpley shades then perhaps a soft lilac would be a shade to consider.

Keep the current purple and white color scheme, anything more would make the room busier than the wallpaper.

Right now it is easy to just focus on the wall paper, which I have to admire!!! Once you get the 'stuff' in there, it will fade in to the background. I agree that white and maybe even black will work as accent colors. Put that shelf on the wall and get your desk in the room and maybe a chair or two and see what it looks like then. OR show us the furniture you have in mind, and we will play with it for you!!!

Just looking at the shelf again......any way it could turn on the other side? Make it shorter and still get the use out of it? By turning it, it will fill that wall by the window and things can go on top of it then, too. It looks dwarfed by the window now, and maybe flipping it over will help.

Did you finish installing this wallpaper? Something looks odd around the window, baseboards and light switch.

Then you already knew white was perfect! Find some white frames for art and one more accent color....red? Find art with red and white in it.

I think a large white bookshelf or the white framed photos mentioned above would help. Good luck!

Hot pink pillow for the chairs? A hot pink lamp for the desk? Is there an outlet nearby? White curtains or blinds?

Exciting Windows! by Stacey Hudson
I totally agree with the white accents! This gives the eye a place to rest! Would love to see hot pink in the room and some drapery would be a nice break from all the purple on that wall. Also, it might be nice to paint the door inside the room to white. As far as window coverings...maybe a nice white sheer so that it is light and airy and doesn't add to all the solid whites you are bringing into the room. It could look really cool if you buy 2 panels of hot pink sheers to be in the middle of the window and then the white sheers across the rest of the window. You could pull the pink sheers in front of the white sheers for a little decoration. Also, could you mount the book case on the wall horizontally and stick your desk under it? That would clear your floor and leave room for walking and with it over the desk you won't hit your head!

Are you finished with the installation? Or does is still need to be smoothed down? It looks like it's overhanging in the baseboard area.

I actually like the print but the seams don't align and it's overhanging on the trim.

I agree that white drapes will look great, extend the pole so they don't obscure the window when open.

You have to be sooooo excited to have all the goodies now! Always love it when things arrive early in the mail!!!

Love the fun pillow and the lamps! Just not sure I love the desk blocking the shelves???? It looks crowded and cramped this way with some shelves covered....like it does not fit??

Can the desk fit under the window at all? Or does that totally mess up the closet doors? Then the shelves on the adjacent wall?

OK, so the first picture you just posted of the desk and shelves.......is the corner with the chairs and table across the room from it? I think this all might work just fine like that. And for what it is worth.....I like the art work as it has white and black to be accent colors, too. It is a fun piece. I like the ghost chairs together and only seeing the front of the pillows and the white chair is perfect with the white stuff.

The Lucite chairs are great- don't need cushions on them...it ruins the effect of them being clear.

I really like the ghost chairs in this corner best of all. If you do not need the lamp, I like the tall vase of pink there, too, but without the lamp. They seem to fight each other. I like the white shag rug a lot! Very clever way to add color to the wall, too!!!

You did a great job bringing excitement to the room. I love that corner you created - I do think the small table is a bit crowded though - maybe you can move the lamp over to the white table. Also I really like the arrangement you have on the small table, however the one on the white table isn't as unique. What do you think of these?

So do I - what a statement but don't you think it might be too big for your space? That's why I thought the second one was more appropriate - or this one. OMG this site has one of a kind arrangements and they are very well priced.
