I made some changes to my home office this week, I wanted to jazz it up with a new light fixture and change the background on my bookshelves to include a pattern. I spend almost as much time in here each day as I do sleeping so I wanted it to be fun. I’ve been crushing on spotted backgrounds for a few months so that’s what I went with, navy of course since gold + blue = my fave.
We built this IKEA Besta + Billy bookcase combo with lights for my office almost two years ago and I still love it so much, it’s one of my favorite IKEA hacks in our home. I added Lucient Light Shop as a favorite on Etsy and a few months ago ordered an eight arm raw brass sputnik from Sarah, I love the shape of it!
You can buy spotted wallpaper, Thibaut’s Tanzania is so very chic. I even considered designing my own and uploading to Spoonflower but instead the impatient-cheap-get-it-done-now side of me opted for paint. This is not a stencil, although you can buy this cheetah spot version and it is very similar although the spots are more spaced out. No I just winged it with… a kitchen sponge.
