I am currently giving my home office a makeover. Last week, my husband and I tackled one of the projects on my office makeover to-do list by making a DIY board and batten grid wall. While I had a general direction for the look of my new office before tackling any of my renovation projects, including the grid wall, I didn’t have an inspiration board created yet.
Amid a few other office projects I have begun to tackle, I decided to make my inspiration board today! I have been perusing Amazon for some new decor ideas, and I’m happy to say I have found lots of inspiration. It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of HGTV’s Fixer Upper and I adore Joanna Gaines’ design work. I tried to tune her in when creating this board so I could achieve a look similar to hers.
Here’s a roundup of my favorite Fixer Upper inspired office decor items that are all available on Amazon!
Holland Bookcase – I loovveee…lurrrvvv…luuuvvv this bookcase. It’s so much classier than a standard five-shelf bookcase. I just got the tiniest bit depressed because I looked at my standard bookcase that’s sitting next to me and then back at this one on the computer screen. If I don’t purchase this one, I’m going to have some serious DIY work to do on my crummy standard one. Thanks a lot, Amazon.
Baxton Studio Natural Oak Wood Chair – I adore this chair for a home office or, really, anywhere in the home. I could definitely see it being used as an accent chair in a living room or as part of a dining room set. The oval back gives it such a timeless and elegant look.
Turin Wood Dining Table with Farmhouse Legs – This table is actually a dining table, but I think it would would work perfectly as an oversized desk. The legs give it that perfect farmhouse appeal.
Wood and Wire Pendant Light – Just keep staring…just keep staring. Is this not the best pendant light you have ever seen? If it’s not, then don’t answer that question. I am obsessed with it.
Farmhouse Steel Vintage Shade and Gooseneck – This is so industrial and…perfect.
Scoop Wire Storage Basket – If you’re like me and always in need of storage bins, this one is a great solution. I think the scooped front gives it such a cute appeal. I also like the idea of adding a wood or chalkboard tag to the front to give any items in it a description.
Mini Artificial Succulent Plants – Every space needs greenery, in my humble opinion.
Jumbo Scrapbook Storage Box – This box is so simple and functional. I like that I could store my mismatched junk in it without anyone ever knowing.
Vintage Style Bicycle Bookends – I am really trying to step up my quirky pieces in my home. I have next to none. I think these bicycle bookends could be a step in the right direction.
Rustic Wood Wall Clock – I have been wanting a wood clock for awhile, and I absolutely love this one.
Rustic Open Box Shelves – I could see these either being hung as shelves or displayed on bookshelves are part of the decor.
Boston Fern – Who doesn’t love a fern?
Weathered Oak and Matte Black Bookcase – Weathered oak is so beautiful. This bookcase would make a statement in any home office.
Chicken Wire Baskets – More storage options are always a good thing. These baskets would be perfect for pads of paper or a couple of books.
Beige/Blue Vintage Persian Rug – I currently have carpet in my home office, and while I would much rather prefer wood, I don’t think I want to spend any of my office makeover budget on redoing the floors. I may revisit that in the future, but for now, I think a rug like this one would help complete the look. It would also look amazing on wood floors, too.
Decorative Jugs – These jugs would make amazing bookcase decor in a home office.
Galvanized Wall Pockets – I am always looking for wall decor that isn’t pictures or frames, and I love this option. They’d be perfect for incoming mail or even some faux greenery.
Galvanized Wall Hanging File Holder – Papers and mail collect in an office. Even the most organized people still need an organization system. This industrial file holder could be the perfect solution.
Faux Wood Table Lamp – I am loving wood (or faux wood, in this case) elements lately. The base of this table lamp is calling my name.
Rustic Round Galvanized Metal Mirror – Am I the only one who likes a mirror in my office? They come in handy and can also make perfect wall decor.
Desktop Office Organizer – This is such a cute office organizer, perfect for odds and ends.
Farmhouse Industrial Chairs – Other people need a place to sit, too. Am I right? I get annoyed at running out to my dining room to grab a chair every time I want to show my husband something on my computer. Wouldn’t it be convenient to have additional chairs ALREADY IN THE OFFICE? I like these a lot, so maybe they’ll make their way into my home office.
Hour Glass in Stand – Let’s be honest – I wouldn’t actually USE this hour glass. But, I love the way it looks. It would make the perfect statement piece on an office desk.
Apothecary Wood Desk Drawer Set – Lately I have had an obsession with apothecaries. Oh right, it’s because I watch Fixer Upper and I’ve seen Joanna (I’m just going to call her by her first name like I know her. Don’t judge me.) incorporate them into her design. This small desk one would be super cute in an office.
Coffee Mug – You had me at “shiplap walls.”
Shiplap Pillow – There’s no better way to end a post than with a soft and cuddly farmhouse pillow. I’d like this one to make its way to my office chair immediately.
