When M&J were discussing what was needed in their future home, an office was a must. M works from home for a national commodity association, so he needed a place to store his supplies, work and keep all his things separate from J's.
The home has 3 bedrooms, so it worked out perfectly to have their master bedroom, a guest bedroom and an office for M. By process of elimination, the "airplane" room became the office. There was a beautiful (please note the sarcasm, here) blue color painted on one wall in the airplane room. Thankfully, the three other walls in that room had already been painted white over the gorgeous primary yellow color. M&J always talked about putting purple in a room (We are K-State Grads, after all...) and so by elimination, the purple was painted over that AWFUL (I'll just come out and say it) blue.

and the traces of yellow behind the white walls)
Yay for Blue!

The Office - After Furniture, Before Decor
After the floors were complete, we moved in a rug and M's furniture as soon as possible, as he had been without an actual work space for a few months. He was very happy to finally have a desk, a permanent place for his printer and storage for all his supplies. Although the furniture is mismatched, it all serves a purpose and will eventually be replaced with something more functional and a little easier on the eyes...
