get the look: chic in ojai

When the latest Veranda landed in my mailbox, I couldn’t make it the short walk to the house before ripping through the plastic and thumbing through to the cover article.  Have you seen it?  It’s the stunning home office of decorator and blogger Brooke Giannetti set inside her gorgeous new Ojai home.  From the exposed reclaimed wood beams and vintage hanging lantern to the antique desk and those AMAZING soft gray doors, the room is almost too pretty to get any actual work done, don’t you think? Perfect spot to blog (or daydream while trying to blog!).  The rest of the house is just as chic and elegant (including an amazing chicken coop!) but this little slice of home office heaven is my favorite.  Scroll down to see my picks for creating a similar look at home.  Congrats, Brooke; this is a well deserved cover!!

Almost everything in Brooke’s office is vintage or antique, but you can still create a similar look and feel without breaking the bank for one-of-a-kind finds or scouring ebay and antique stores until you go cross-eyed!  Here are my picks:

Lantern lighting like this one (it’s on sale, too!):

I love the idea of using a larger table for a desk, with tons of extra workspace.  This dining table is a great reproduction of a French antique:

I love the antique-inspired design of these arm chairs and the pricepoint is fabulous, too!

The most perfect soft gray, Benjamin Moore Cliffside Gray, on doors (and maybe even trim!):

There’s no mirror in Brooke’s office, but I love the idea of adding a little something gilded.  This French gilt mirror is just perfection:

A soft and thick handspun jute rug underfoot to anchor the space:

Fresh greenery is a must; a grouping of myrtle and rosemary topiary at one corner of the desk is an elegant compliment:

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  Stay warm!
