Mini Office Makeover

Office Before
During a bookkeeping appointment with our accountant, it was relayed that she was having difficulty personalizing her office.  She had purchased a couple of prints and a small bamboo mirror, a few pieces that reminded her of her time living in Japan, but wasn’t certain how best to display them.  She wanted a cozier look and feel to her workspace but desired to keep things simple and organized.
TC Millwork Design set out to create a solution that would not require a great deal of expense or waiting time.  Firstly, we suggested removing all pieces in the room which did not have a specific function.  With the subtraction of a coffee table there was now room for a pair of interior plants to add some life and touch of green to the room.  A rug was top priority; we needed a style that would add texture, graphic pattern, and a splash of color to the space.  The rug pictured above was perfect to give the small room a central piece to tie it all together. 
  The room also needed a narrow display that would  house the collection of family photographs which previously sat clustered on the filing cabinet.  Floating shelves were ideal; a series of three in various lengths were hung, creating a contemporary clean look.

British Invasion: Union Jack trend

Collage from one of my new favorite blogs boho circus
I have been running into the union jack icon everywhere in the blogging network as of late.  I have unabashedly been collecting inspirations from here and there for the last few months.

Living in a British territory, we dwellers in the Turks and Caicos definitely have license to apply this trend!  This Caribbean porch was certainly succesful so why not?
I have been been meaning to get to my handpainted rug project started since last May, inspired by the fab photo above.  All of the above images could be great starting points for various projects but when I saw this:
I gasped as soon as I laid eyes on it! Less than 24 hours later I was busy transforming this $20 thrift shop purchased jute rug from used and abused to jolly jim dandy.
