Today is the day!!! I can’t wait to invite you into my marble and gold office, but before we get started get up right now and go grab yourself a big cup of coffee. Once you see the cozy rug in this office, you’ll probably want to lay down and take a nap…so you need that caffeine.
Ok, now that we got that coffee situation taken care of…. welcome to my glam girl cave!
Before we jump in to the marble and gold office with two feet, let’s take a look back at both where the room started (blah blah and blah) and my marble and gold office inspiration board that I shared on the blog a few weeks ago.
Here’s what we were working with when we moved in. Ugh, I can’t believe we even purchased this house. It was really pretty hideous at move-in. The office was actually the very first room in the entire house that we started renovating. Because I work from home, my office need to be set up right when we moved in….the rest of the house is a whole ‘nother story (see: we slept in the living room for 7 months).
After skim coating (aka smoothing out the splotchy and rough texture), painting, replacing light fixtures and closet systems, installing new cellular shades and new laminate wood floors…we were left with this. And it stayed like this for quite some time.
I shared with you recently some of my thoughts behind why I chose this modern glam style decor for my home office. Long story, short – my office is the only room in the house that is totally and completely MINE. Logan gives me free reign in this room to decorate however I want. I decided to make this room: girly, glam, clean and all about marble, gold and mint.
Come on in…

This marble and gold office is the heart and home of all my crafts…well ok, let’s be honest here….most of my crafts happen on the dining room table. I usually end up toting my craft supplies out and completely taking over the entire dining room table for a day or two (or ten). I love being able to craft while watching my little guy eat blueberries in his highchair or explore our house and figure out the world around him. I also love the natural light that those two big windows give me for craft photography…Ok, enough about the dining room. Let’s get back to the marble and gold office!
The moral of the story is that ALLLL of my craft supplies get stored in this room and in my handy dandy ScrapBox. I absolutely adore my ScrapBox. Look at all the pretty organization! The ScrapBox is a whole other story for another day (do you want to see in the ScrapBox in more detail?! Let me know in the comments).
I had so much fun transforming this broken slab of marble that I picked up for just $1 at Habitat for Humanity ReStore! I was so excited when I found the piece so small and managable. I thought I was only going to find large pieces that I would have to break down more to get something that fits on a shelf…remember marble is HEAVY. You can check out the entire tutorial for this fun DIY here.
To get this mint green ombre look, just grab a canvas and slop on some paint and lighten your brush strokes at the bottom…seriously, it was THAT simple!
This little mid-century fun side table was a DIY and you’re going to be shocked when you (a) what it is a made from and (b) what is a covering up. I’ll give you a virtual high-five if you can you guess either of those! Full tutorial for this fun project is coming soon! Be sure the subscribe (link at the top of this post) so you don’t miss it!
I had so much for putting together this little gallery wall! My plan is to turn that bulletin board into a mini command center!
Oh and those wire baskets….hello $3 magazine holders from Target Dollar Spot. I just turned them on their side and nailed them to the wall.
The hexagon memo boards and marble clock were both really fun DIYs. Stay tuned for the tutorials on those ones!
