{guest post}-the curtis casa.

Hi Jillian's readers! I'm Whitney from The Curtis Casa and I have been loving Jillian's blog for quite a while. When I read that Jillian and her fiancĂ© got a place of their very own, I was so excited for them! I know how crazy / fun / intimidating it can be to move into a new place. I thought it would be really fun to pull a little something together for the engaged couple so I emailed Jillian and couldn't wait to get in on the fun!


Jillian shared with me the overall feel and function of the dual home office + guest room, as well as their wedding registry, favorite trends, color schemes and pinterest boards! From those ideas, I decided to focus on the "work space" side of the room and I came up with this inspiration board!


1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7

I did take Angela's great advice and picked the rug {and fabric swatches} first. Well, let's be honest, I really picked that lovely Room & Board blue chair first, but that's okay. Jillian could use that lovely grey and white chevron for some drapes and the coordinating fabrics for throw pillows on the bed. This Twiggy knockoff floor lamp pulls in some bright red, to coordinate with some sentimental red artwork that Jillian & H will have in the room. {Meaningful art is the best kind of art!} And I love this cheap, simple + sleek Ikea desk for for a workspace in this room. What's great about it is that you can customize it, spray paint the legs and paint the top to suit any room! 

Thanks for having me, Jillian, I hope you guys have a blast settling into your new home!
Thanks for reading, y'all!

xoxo,
Whitney
