A Cozy Office Nook

home- cozy office nook, feminine home office, organized home office, small office, decorating, farmhouse office

It’s here! I promised I’d be back with a completed cozy office nook, and I can’t wait to share it with you today!

From the moment we first decided on the floor plan for the new house, the room I was most excited about was my office. Since it is the bonus room over the garage, it’s one of the largest rooms in the house, and I immediately started thinking about how I would use all of that space! So many possibilities!

But as we moved in and started getting the house all set up, my office moved further and further down the priority list. I just couldn’t justify working on a space that would only benefit me when so many of the main living spaces that everyone used needed a lot of attention.

A Cozy Office Nook

As we got closer and closer to Mother’s Day though, my wheels started turning. What I really wanted for Mother’s Day was a cozy little spot where I could work, relax, and go to kind of escape from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the house. And while I knew that a whole office overhaul wasn’t in the cards anytime soon, I could certainly do a quick little makeover on the small nook space in my office, right?!

I pitched the idea to Donnie and he was all for it (Isn’t he the best?!), so I made a plan for the space, which I shared with you all on Tuesday. I’m happy to say that with a fresh coat of paint, some new furniture pieces, and a few accessories, we were able to transform my little nook from this:

Quite a difference, right?! I think I found my new favorite spot in the house!

Since I knew I would be working in this space, I definitely needed a desk, but I also wanted to have a cozy chair where I could kick back and relax as well– this tufted arm chair from Joss & Main ended up being perfect.

I happened to find a matching footstool to complete this little corner, and is the most comfortable place to relax at the end of a long day (or first thing in the morning or at lunchtime or after the boys get home from school… okay, I’m in here all the time)!

Since “cozy” was the feel I was going for in this spot, I brought in an area rug to layer over the existing carpet (and even snuck in a little faux sheepskin rug too!), along with several pillows and a throw.

(I actually liked this rug so much that I got a smaller version of it to put in my kitchen in front of the sink!)

I normally keep the walls pretty neutral in our house– grays and whites are my go-tos– but since this was such a small space within the room, I thought a pop of color would be perfect. After trying a bunch of little samples, Sherwin Williams Rainwashed ended up being the winner, and I am smitten with it!

And flowers make everything better, right?! 🙂

My most favorite type of wall decor is shelves, so I picked up a few inexpensive picture ledges and filled them with frames I already had. Simple, easy, and beautiful!

AND I get to look at these boys’ cute faces every time I visit my nook! <3

I searched far and wide for the perfect desk for this little space, and I ended up falling in love with this one from Joss & Main. It is super sturdy, has a nice amount of storage space, and looks beautiful too– win-win-win!

I was worried that having two chairs in the nook would end up looking too cluttered, but this little X-back number was just the thing. It’s the perfect size for the desk and doesn’t take up much space at all.

Maybe it’s because we’re a little further out in farm country in this house, but I am loving weathered woods and have been incorporating them into just about every space. This one is no exception!

The lamp brings in more of the cozy vibe at night with its warm light, and the organizer allows me to keep some of my favorite things on the desk without it feeling too cluttered. Love.

So needless to say, if you need me anytime in the near future, I’ll be right here… 😉

    This space looks wonderful and oh-so-pretty! I am sure tons of time is spent here simply because it looks so relaxing! Good work!

  3. Christy McQueen says:

    Looks beautiful! I have a little office nook as well and needed the inspiration!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thank you so much, Christy! I love the little nooks! They can be so functional & beautiful but are also small enough to spruce up fairly easily! 🙂 Hope you’re having a great week!

      ~Abby =)

  4. What a perfect space! So pretty and so cozy!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thank you so much, Denise! You are the sweetest! Hope you’re having a wonderful week!

      ~Abby =)

  5. Kelly Howard says:

    In your before pic you had some necessary office things like a printer and books and such. Where are those located now? Just so you know…I totally drooled over your new little space! It is the BOMB!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thanks so much, Kelly! This nook is part of a much bigger office, so the items you don’t see are just behind the camera. 🙂 Eventually we’ll get to overhauling the whole thing, so you’ll get to see everything in its final spot! Hope you’re having a great week!

      ~Abby =)

  6. Oh, so gorgeous! I would never want to leave! I need a home office makeover really soon, right now it’s the room I try to avoid looking at. I recently signed up for your Building a Framework course and I feel like I need to get myself organized before really jumping in so that I can make the most of the course, and that includes getting my “space” set up. This might be the kick in the butt… ahem, I mean, inspiration… that I needed ?

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Lol! So glad it was helpful for you, Erica! I often need “inspiration” as well! 🙂 Good luck on your blogging journey! <3

      ~Abby =)

  7. Awesome!!!
    The white ceiling actually grew on me now that i’m seeing it all together!

  9. Christina - Ladybug Home says:

    I want to live in your office. So glad you made yourself a cozy space. Great idea to start in the nook and then focus on rest of the room in the future. Love it!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      I do too! LOL Thanks so much, Christina! Hope you’re having a wonderful week! <3

      ~Abby =)

  10. Marly @ A Brick Home says:

    Yay! I have been eagerly waiting for you to post this! LOVE the way it turned out. The color scheme is spot on. And I think you have the perfect combination of cozy furniture for the space! I want to redo my office space at some point so this will be my inspiration.

    Thanks, Abby!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thanks so much, Marly! I am LOVING it! Good luck with your office reno! 🙂 Happy Thursday!

  11. Valerie | One Happy Housewife says:

    Your office looks gorgeous Abby! Love the way the color turned out! I’m working on my office, but I have a desk I need to paint, and I’m scared to start! It’ll be my first painting project! After seeing your finished office though, I’m inspired to go start NOW!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Yay! So glad it was inspiring for you, Valerie! I’m sure your office will be lovely! Hope you’re having a wonderful week! <3

      ~Abby =)

  12. Lindsay Eidahl says:

    I have been thinking about adding a comfy chair to my new office too. Love the chair you chose!!!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      I LOVE IT! Sometimes I’d just rather lounge than sit at a desk! 🙂

      ~Abby =)

  13. Emily @ Small Stuff Counts says:

    This looks beautiful, Abby! I would be in that nook working all day and night. Love the wall color you went with!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thanks so much, Emily! I am loving the color, too! Hope you’re having a wonderful week! <3

      ~Abby =)

  14. Michelle Johnson says:

    Wow! It looks amazing! Love everything you did! I really want that upholstered chair and ottoman! Love the neutrals with that paint color. It looks very soothing. It also looks bigger to me when comparing the before and after pictures. Have a great day!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thank you so much, Michelle! You are the sweetest! Hope you’re having a wonderful week!

      ~Abby =)

  15. Hi Abby,
    I love your style. So pretty. I can’t seem to find a price on the desk (Mitchell). Can you help? The chiar that goes with the desk looks cool too. Prices?
    Thanks

    1. justagirlabby says:

      So strange that it’s not showing up on their site! Sorry about that! I found it on their sister site, Wayfair, here: https://www.wayfair.com/Viv-Rae-Sully-Computer-Desk-VVRO3990.html . They do have it on Joss & Main in the wood finish: https://www.jossandmain.com/Riley-Writing-Desk-DBYH6011.html . And this one is pretty similar to my desk: https://www.jossandmain.com/Ellis-Writing-Desk-DRBC5288.html . If you click on the photo of the desk chair, it will take you to the pricing on Amazon. (Though it’s showing $106 for me right now, and I think I only paid about $80 for it, so you may want to watch it and see if it goes down again! 😉 ) I hope this helps! Have a great day!

      ~Abby =)

  16. Eliza Grace says:

    Wow! Absolutely gorgeous! I really love the paint color. You did an amazing job! 🙂

  17. LOVE this! I’m still working on setting spaces up in the house. I wish you could just redesign it for me, you always come up with the best decor + space planning!

      Aw, thanks so much, Rachel! Have a wonderful weekend! <3

  20. Oh Abbey! Your little nook is so beautiful! I can see why you want to be in it so often:) I love the color and that chair! Oh my! I really need a couple of these in front of my fireplace:) Thanks so much for sharing your before and after!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thanks so much, Beth! I am LOVING it! 🙂 Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

      ~Abby =)

  21. Abby, this is such a pretty room and looks so peaceful and relaxing! I’d be curling up on that cozy chair falling asleep! Love everything you did in here! So fun being on another blog tour with you friend. I hope your family spoils you on Mother’s Day!

  22. Roberta McColl says:

    Ok, so I was a nerd and looked up SW Rainwashed on http://encycolorpedia.com/c2cdc6 and it turns out it’s Valspar cousin (Sparkling Lake) is the color of our family room/ kitchen color. I love that color and it’s a beautiful “neutral” without being white, beige, or gray.

    1. justagirlabby says:

      I am loving that color too! I’m sure it’s beautiful in your family room/kitchen! It’s so serene! 🙂 Hope you are having a wonderful week, Roberta! <3

      ~Abby =)

  23. Karen Joyce says:

    Beautiful!! I would spend all my time in that gorgeous chair gazing out the window while I blog!! Soon we will be moving aboard our “new to us” 27′ sailboat and I will need to create space as we remodel. I’ll be watching your updates to get ideas I can apply to my new tiny house living.

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Oh, wow! That sounds lovely! Good luck on your remodel and enjoy your time on the boat! <3

      ~Abby =)

  24. Love it! We have pretty much the exact same house. Palermo model right? It is so fun to see how you’ve decorated your house and get ideas for how we can use the spaces of our house in different ways!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Yep, Palermo! Hope you love it as much as we do! I’m glad it has given you some inspiration… we are a work in progress over here for sure! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!

      ~Abby =)

  25. momof3misses says:

    I LOVE this. I have a question; how do you pull this together so quickly? I feel that it takes us so long to decide on a project and then execute it. Any thoughts appreciated.

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thank you so much! I think everything seems quicker in “blog time,” lol. I started planning for this project probably in February or early March. I had the walls painted before my surgery (which was March 31) because I knew I wouldn’t be able to do it for a while after! And then I just put it together little by little from there. So there is usually a lot going on with a project behind the scenes before I start talking about it at all on the blog, if that makes sense. 🙂 I actually feel like I’m pretty slow at planning and pulling of a space in its entirety! Hope you’re having a great weekend!

      ~Abby =)

  26. zulejka javeršek says:

    Oh, it’s beautiful! I love what you did in there! No wonder you don’t want to leave;)

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thanks so much! I am loving it, too! 🙂 Have a great week!

      ~Abby =)

  27. What an amazing space to work and relax. Beautiful! Creativity would come easy in such a space. Praying for your continued recovery.

    Blessings,

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thanks so much, Patricia! I am feeling much better and this little nook has helped with the relaxing part! 🙂 Hope you have a great week!

      ~Abby =)

  28. Abby,

    As always you have inspired with a stunning transformation of you beautiful home! It is a pleasure to read your posts and enjoy not only the lovely photos, but your sweet personality. Congratulations on creating a space just for you!

  29. Jean FitzPatrickw says:

    Abby, I love your office space. It looks so inviting. Thanks for the inspiration!
    I’ve never written.before and this has inspired me to get going on my office space.

    1. justagirlabby says:

      So glad it was helpful, Jean! I am loving it so far, too! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week! <3

      ~Abby =)

  30. Abby, what’s the name of shopping widget at the bottom of the post?
    Do you take all your own photos? Will you ever publish a post on indoor/blogging photography tips? I love how bright and airy all your pictures come out! You have a great photography style.

  31. Liz Armstrong says:

    Lovely. I just finished a kitchen remodel. I am a renter of a large studio so I was limited, but I love it. Doesn’t it feel great to have a cozy space of your own? For me it’s the kitchen. ( I have a love seat in it.) Thanks for your post.

    1. justagirlabby says:

      It really does! It makes me feel a little more put together (even though the other side of the room looks like a storage room :). Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week! <3

      ~Abby =)

  32. You did a great job Abby. The chair looks the perfect place to read. Love the paint colour- in fact all of it!
    Have a great weekend. Don’t overdo it.

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thank you, Shirley! The chair is so comfy and the color is very calming… loving it all so far! Hope you have a wonderful week! <3

      ~Abby =)

  33. Rainwashed became my goto favorite color last year when we remodeled our master bedroom and bathroom. It is a feature wall color behind the bed and the color in the bathroom walls. I find it soothing and it doesnt suck the light out of the room. This was important in the bathroom which had no windows to the outside.

    Your office nook looks cozy, functional and very decluttered now. Good work!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Isn’t it the best? I am LOVING it! So serene! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week! <3

      ~Abby =)

  34. OMG what a beautiful place, that will bring to you a lot of inspiration for sure. Good job at creating such a wonderful place 😉

    1. justagirlabby says:

  35. Nice space! And great to see you in a photo too!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Aw, thanks Danielle! You’re right… I tend to try to stay out of them! 🙂 haha Hope you have a wonderful week!

      ~Abby =)

  36. I absolutely love this space! I love everything you picked. Thank you for sharing! It’s giving me ideas for our spare bedroom-definitely thinking the Sherwin Williams Rainwashed will be the perfect color. Thanks again!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thanks so much, Deanna! I am loving it, too! I’m sure it will look beautiful in your spare bedroom! Have a wonderful week!

      ~Abby =)

  37. Nice looking space – but where did you put the printers and the books / files?

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thanks, Amanda! This nook is part of a much bigger office, so those items are just in the other part. Eventually we will overhaul the whole thing, so I’ll be sure to show how I organized all of those things! Have a wonderful week!

      ~Abby =)

  38. SavvySavingandSpending says:

    Abby your office space looks amazing! I really like how it’s put together.
    I love the color scheme you used.

  40. Wow that space came together so beautifully. Congrats this house is looking like a dream come true! Can’t wait until I get to build one of my own!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thanks so much, Deanna! It truly is! We are loving it. Have a wonderful week! <3

      ~Abby =)

  41. Anne Marie says:

    Wow, this looks phenomenal Abby! I’m always amazed by your design skills as it’s something I really struggle with. I really admire your gentle use of color! And I’m a big fan of small spaces & nooks, so this is right up my alley <3

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Aw, thanks so much, Anne Marie! I am loving the serene colors… so calming! Hope you have a wonderful week! <3

      ~Abby =)

  42. Such a cozy spot! I moved my office in to a new room last summer, and fixed it up with colors, etc., that I love. So I know how you feel. I call it my sanctuary!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      It really has been wonderful.. I’m loving it! 🙂 Thank you and have a great week! <3

      ~Abby =)

  43. Hi Abby, this rooms encourages creativity and I love the peaceful “colour” (yes, I’m from Australia) of the walls. In fact you’ve convinced me to paint a feature wall of my bedroom in that shade. I have swatch of it on my fridge as a reminder. Our version is called “Sea Sprite”. Enjoy your special space Abby.

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thanks so much, Jen! I’m sure it will look fabulous in your bedroom! Have a great week! <3

      ~Abby =)

  44. Lovely relaxing space although it is actually a working area. Do you have blinds and what colour? Could not see clearly. good luck! xxx

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Hi Marianne! They are Roman Shades from SelectBlinds. The color is Vanilla Bean! Thank you and I hope you have a wonderful week!

      ~Abby =)

  45. I was initially surprised when you said you were going to paint the nook, but I loved how you painted the area and it looks like a charming place to work. Love how it looks now!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thanks so much, Pam! Have a wonderful week! <3

      ~Abby =)

  46. It looks gorgeous, but my practical side s asking – where do you put your printer – and any other bits of technology?

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Hi, Melody! This nook is part of a much bigger office, so those items are just in the other part. Eventually we will overhaul the whole thing, so I’ll be sure to show how I organized all of those things! 🙂 Have a wonderful week!

      ~Abby =)

      1. Can’t wait to see what the whole room looks like! 🙂

  47. Amy Greene says:

    I am absolutely in love with your office nook – it looks AMAZING and I can’t believe how a few simple pieces made it look like an entirely new space. I am going to use a few of these ideas for myself (well, of course, I have to have a nook first!!) Congrats on a great re-do!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Yay! So glad it was helpful for you, Amy! Thanks and have a wonderful week! <3

      ~Abby =)

  48. Sasha Moore says:

    I love this! That chair is gorgeous and looks so comfy! Great makeover

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thanks so much, Sasha! It really is SO comfortable! Have a wonderful week! <3

      ~Abby =)

  49. Kayla @ Mince Republic says:

    Looks really good! It really is important to have a space that inspires you to do your best work. At least for me, I find that physical clutter leads to mental clutter as well and it makes it difficult to get things done. Happy you were able to get this set up!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Totally agree! Thanks so much, Kayla! Have a great evening! <3

      ~Abby =)

  50. OMG! I thought I was in love with your office space in your last house, but this one is so cozy!! I am definitely going to have to figure out how to make a nook in my tiny little house.

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thank you, Mary! I am loving it, too! So serene! 🙂 Hope you’re having a wonderful week! <3

      ~Abby =)

  51. I adore the transformation! You have inspired me to create a much more serene desk space for myself…first thing in the morning. While my “office” is really in the hallway/dining room, at least I have a beautiful desk my husband made for me. Time to rethink the office space I do have!

    Have a beautiful day 🙂

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Aw, yay! Glad it was helpful, Hannah! Enjoy your new space! 🙂

      ~Abby =)

  52. Adrienne - BCI Janitorial says:

    This is my ideal home office nook/area look! I have something very similar in my own home and I love yours and am very motivated to update mine! Thanks for sharing.

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thanks so much, Adrienne! I am loving it! 🙂 Happy Friday!

      ~Abby =)

  53. Such a beautiful space. There’s nothing like a cozy nook. Gorgeous work. Thanks for sharing!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thanks so much, Jen! <3

      ~Abby =)

  54. Rebecca Morales says:

    What a beautiful space! It’s my dream to one day be able to work from home in a space like this!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thanks so much, Rebecca! I am really loving this space… so cozy! Have a great day! <3

      ~Abby =)

  55. Janette B says:

    Where did you get the black plant prints in your frames – love them! Such a cute, clean organized, comfy space!

  56. I am adoring this space! I live in a small house so I am soaking in the pretty, simple decor you’ve put together in your nook. Question, I am an Interior Designer/blogger (who started because of your fantastic tool, Building a Framework!) and generally feel like I need lots of space to spread things out. Do you feel this desk gives you the space you need for blogging?

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Hi Steffani! I typically blog on my laptop sitting at the desk or in the upholstered chair in the nook, and there is plenty of room for that. If I am doing a project, I typically do that in the larger part of the room where I have some bigger surfaces set up. I hope this helps! Have a great day!

      ~Abby =)

  57. I recently moved and have a tiny room for an office (it’s about 10×10). A few people have suggested a light color accent wall but several have said it may close in the room and make it feel smaller and darker. Do you feel like your paint color choice (absolutely beautiful, by the way) had the opposite effect? Any certain reason(s) you chose that color in particular? Thanks so much! Just stumbled across your blog and I can’t stop reading! ?

      Hi, Erika! Thank you so much for your sweet words! I think as long as your accent wall is a lighter color rather than a darker one, you won’t have trouble with the room feeling smaller. I just really like aqua and after trying a few different samples, this one (Sherwin Williams Rainwashed) was my favorite! I like that it adds some color without being too bold. I hope this helps!

  58. Stunning space, I’m in love with that color as well! I’m wondering where and how you organized the books and files in the before photo. I’m in the process of having to move my office to a new smaller space and I’m having storage issues.

      Hi Denise! They are currently in a little makeshift system on the other side of the room because we haven’t tackled the rest of the space yet, lol! We are planning on starting on this room at the beginning of the new year, so stay tuned! 🙂

  59. Great space and love the changes! Just wondering where that cute rustic and chic paper/desk organizer thing is from?

      Hi, Sam! That was a HomeGoods find! 🙂 Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  60. Hi Abby – thanks for your inspiration! I am taking over a space in my house as my new office and have the same color palette. I love your chair and am planning to order the exact same one. I see yours has a matching ottoman but for the life of me, I cannot seem to locate an ottoman that matches the chair on Joss and Main or any other site that carries this brand (Coaster, I believe). Did you have yours custom made or do they just not make it any more? If it was custom made, how did you match the fabric? Thanks for any help you can give!

      1. Thank you so much for your quick reply and willingness to help! Thanks also for the inspiration on your blog.

        Have a great day!

  61. So pretty!! Where did u get the comfy chair? loved it!

    Hi Abbey, I teally like your office nook. What if you don’t have a room to designate to an office ? Is there another way to create an office area besides the diningroom table?

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Hi, Rose! You could fit a small desk in the corner of another room, perhaps? It’s hard to say without seeing your home’s layout. When we lived in a one bedroom apartment, Donnie used a secretary desk in the corner of the living room. He could flip it out and work when he needed to and then easily shut it up and hide everything away when he wasn’t working. It worked well for us! Hope you’re having a great week!

    Where did you purchase the wood paper organizer for the desk? Love the detail on it!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Hi, Michelle! Thanks! I got it from HomeGoods. 🙂

  64. Hi,
    I’ve only just found this posting and sure you’ve moved on since “nook” days
    could you possibly give me an idea of the size of yours?
    I’m trying to work out my own little nook and my furniture is similar to yours
    so thought if I knew size you worked with it would help.
    Many thanks in advance, could you please answer as an email I’m nursing my
    brother with terminal cancer & don’t have much time for net searching – thanks

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Hi, Lucy! I am actually sitting in this nook responding to your question right now! 🙂 It is part of a larger office space, but the nook itself is 8’10” x 6′. I hope this helps. Have a great day!

      ~Abby =)

  65. I saw where you said you got the desk organizer from is there by chance a brand on it? I love it, the size is perfect for where I would need it to go.

    Thanks!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Ahhh I just searched every inch of it and didn’t see any markings or brands anywhere. There may have been a sticker on it or something when I got it, but it has been a few years now, so I’m not sure. So sorry about that! TJ Maxx, HomeGoods, and Marshall’s all carry similar items, so it would be worth keeping an eye out at any of those places for it or something similar!

    Setting up my new home office and love the idea of the rug that can pull the nook together. Thanks for the idea!

      So glad it was helpful for you, Nicole! <3

  67. This is super cute! I’m struggling with colors for our new addition… Wanting airy as there’s lots of white windows, but over the greens that I painted much of the house in years ago. Blues and grays seem like my only option, but I’ve never been a big blue fan, and grey would be drab everywhere. YOUR combo looks great! Do you recall the gray color on the entrance wall of this nook? Thanks for your blog, I’m finding it quite refreshing!

    1. Abby Lawson says:

      Hi there! The gray I use in my office (and in many parts of our house!) is Behr Marquee Silver City. 🙂 Have fun with your project!
