We were blessed with a 2 bedroom townhome. So much more space than we actually needed. Since we don’t plan on having kids for a couple of years, we had to decide what to do with our extra room.
For 7 months it served as storage space for all the misc. junk we brought from out parents houses that didn’t really have a place here (which has since been moved to the basement).
We honestly didn’t have much use for it. Any family coming into town could stay with my parents (who are now practically empty nesters with like..3 extra bedrooms), or his parents, so we knew we wouldn’t have many guests.
But then when I started working for Orangetheory, I had to work many of my hours from home since the studio space was under construction. I have to do a lot of lesson planning and paperwork from home for my dance teaching job as well. And Kurtis decided to start taking online classes so he would still be free to work full time and do his internship. So we decided on home office. We have one nice, big desk, and one smaller desk. At the time these pictures were taken, I had the bigger desk since I was working 12+ hours a week from home. But since the studio opened we have switched because Kurtis has started school and I don’t work from home nearly as much. We will probably continually swap desks depending on who is using the office more and needs the bigger space. At least until we can get 2 big desks!
Since we moved in here, Kurtis has been complaining that he didn’t have much of a say in decorating the house and all of his stuff is in the basement. (The transformers poster and multiple snowboards don’t really match my decor), so I told him he could decorate his side of the office however he wanted!
And, of course, he didn’t touch it. Typical.
So, my side is all decorated and cute, and Kurtis’ is, well…lame. There’s still a few more things I want to do with it, to tie it all together more. Get a new comforter, pillows, and rug that all match, etc, which will have to wait until I have more time to focus on it.
But here it is! Our home office/guest room!
