Great auction finds and tips to liven up your study!

Each week I bring you the best finds from auctions all across the country. Usually I find myself creating pretty, light and fresh (maybe a bit girly – guilty as charged!) designs for you, but this week’s auction gives me a chance to mix it up!

The auction this weekend takes place in Kingwood, TX and has rich furniture that’s perfect for a more formal or masculine look. Today’s trends seem to lean toward a more light and bright look, so don’t turn up your noses just yet! Adding a masculine touch to your home will create balance and will allow each room to have its own personality. I love walking into a home and seeing that there’s an overall “theme” but each room has its own personality. So, here we go! I’ve put together the perfect masculine home office that will even have the guys swooning!Kingwood, TX

I’ve paired together this great mahogany desk with this office chair that has a rugged suede backing with a leather seat and nail heads. I love this chair because of the way it mixes elements like wood, leather and suede. Did I mention that it’s very comfortable, too?

If your home office is large enough, place one or two comfy reading chairs toward the front of the room to create an inviting space – like this upholstered hunter green chair. Even though you may be spending long hours at work in this room, you want there to be a place to relax and unwind when you need to take a break. If you have accents in this room like built-ins or bookcases, paint them the same color as the walls to give it a more serene and sophisticated look. I love this color palette for a home office! Don’t be afraid to paint the whole room the darkest color I’ve suggested here. All of the other elements in the room will really pop with this color on the walls. You can also add a few sconces to the room in a brassy tone that will add the perfect amount of light to your office.

Have fun with this room and don’t be afraid of fun, bold accents like these curtains, pillows and lots of pattern!
