One Room Challenge: Nick’s Office Wallpaper + Knobs

ORC Nicks Office Paint-8

You know that feeling you get when a room starts to come together, and there are certain parts that look super unfinished once you get 1 thing done? That’s basically the story of this week’s One Room Challenge saga. After I finished painting the install, this little built in nook area looked so sad and unfinished.

Step 1: Wallpaper to make it look more finished. We found this Hygge & West wallpaper on ebay – 2 rolls $120 for both. It’s from their Heath Ceramics line and normally sells for $140 per roll. Even though I can hang wallpaper, we hired someone to hang it. We still came in under budget for buying the paper at such a great deal.

I think it looks even better in person. It makes a huge impact without being too over powering in the room. It goes well with the marble in the office. Super manly and everything too.

With the inset doors/drawers, we really needed hardware from day 1. Instead we lived life on the wild side and just left the doors open. All. The. Time. It’s one of those annoying tasks that you know you need to do – put knobs on your impossible to open inset cabinets, but you just don’t. Minimal effort and money but somehow always gets ignored on the to do list…for like 3 years.

Seriously how gorgeous are these brass bar pulls?? They are substantial too. Again why did we wait so long to pull the trigger on hardware in there? Each bar was less than $7, and now we can open all the drawers and doors any time we want! Can you even imagine people? Yeah you probably can because normal people with inset cabinets put hardware on immediately.

Such a huge change from the sad before state of this wall don’t you think? Obviously we need to style that area, hang art, etc. BUT it’s definitely more functional along with being more finished. I do still need to handle an organizational matter behind those black doors with the pretty brass handles.

So what else is left…

*Wallpaper above the built in.
*Knobs for the cabinets.
*Paint a little install
*Organizational matter
*Hang guitars
*Get some art and style up in there
*Cable management
*Convincing Nick that he needs a new desk/finding said desk

I’m having zero luck on stumbling upon the perfect desk to persuade Nick. Possibly zero desks have even been considered at this point which is a real bummer. If you or anyone you know has a cool desk in the DFW area, contact me now.

  1. Love it! That wall paper is perfect. Love the geometric lines and the pulls are sooo pretty. Love how it is coming together!

  2. swoooon! love the paper and the brass, which is always a great choice! 😉

  3. Okay, I am obsessed with every single detail here – from the perfectly built-in credenza (my OCD rejoices, ha!), to the paint color, to the wallpaper… And don’t even get me started on those brass cabinet pulls!!! Are the guitars going over the credenza? I think that would look amazing – because right now everything has right angles, so the curves of the guitars would really add some visual interest, I think! Cannot wait to see what you do next week…

      The guitars will go on the wall with the install. Mainly for easier access since he uses them often possibly during conference calls but I probably shouldn’t admit that. We do need some curves in this space tho! I couldn’t agree with you more!

  4. Love that paper! Excited to see the reveal of this office. You guys always put together such unique spaces! xo

  5. I love the wallpaper and hardware! That space doesn’t look sad anymore! Oh, and great deal on the wallpaper! I would have never thought about checking eBay for wallpaper, but it make so much sense!

    • Amber says:

      Thank you! We randomly decided to check ebay one night. We had decided on another Hygge & West paper but couldn’t beat the price of this one. Also I think this paper ended up being a better fit for this space.

  7. looks amazing!! Love the blue and the marble is beautiful. I have the same pulls too and yay to the wallpaper love! I am a big fan as well! Can’t wait to see what’s up next!

  8. The pulls were worth waiting for – they look perfect on the credenza! Love all of this.

    • Amber says:

      Thanks Jen! They were worth the wait. I just wish I would have searched for them long ago! That would have been the best of both worlds! :)
