Cheap Color

Last week I moved with the team in Lexington to a new office - and its possible I'll be working here until the end of October - practically forever for me.  Everyone in the team started bringing in a few items from home to decorate and make their offices a little more pleasant.  I wanted to do the same, except I don't have much at my apartment here in Lexington that could be brought.  I decided it was time to stretch my creative muscles.

I started with a couple of turquoise table clothes I brought home from Delhi that I had used to decorate my bedroom there.  Next came a few items from Target's Liberty of London line - some folders and a pretty pillow, I also nabbed a bright pink lamp on sale for $14.

Next up I hit Goodwill and found some cheap picture frames and a mirror (the entire set was under $10) add in a couple cans of spray paint and I had some colorful art for the wall.  I finished things off with a silk art print I picked up in Thailand last month, a lamp I found on super clearance at Homegoods and some silver boxes a friend in India gave me.

I'm loving my cheap and colorful office and have been enjoying this week while listening to Griffin House - a new discovery thanks to a recommendation from Katie C.
