My Cozy Little Home Office

I don't know if you remember me talking about this before, but last year, due to some upheaval in our family we almost put our old farmhouse on the market, and walked away from this home we have loved for 20 years. 

BUT then we didn't. 

We instead reworked spaces in our house so that they work better for our family as it is now-- something we all need to do from time to time-- and we are so glad we stayed. 

One room that took on a new identity was the third floor attic space--a room that is much like a treehouse with its small footprint, high perch, lofty views of the landscape, and sloping ceiling. 

The space has been many things over the past two decades- a bedroom, a guest room, a hang-out for kids... but NOW it is the world headquarters of Revealing Redesign. :)

Thought you might like to see what this space where I work each day looks like:

Because things were already in upheaval at the Cochran's when this room changed its identity, and it was pretty much in good shape with neutral paint, I streamlined the redesign and worked around the existing paint colors and area rug. 

Adding all the funky touches that make it feel like ERIN COCHRAN'S space made all the difference...like lots of green plants, vintage original artwork, architectural salvage window sashes, a repurposed and repainted dresser from the 1940's...

and of course, personal photos. :)

It is a lovely place to spend my time doing the work I love to do! 

I hope you, too, have a space of your own where you are able to be creative, dream, and work on what matters to you!
