Modern Rustic Office Space

We have a massive master bedroom, in fact we could probably fit our RV into it 2 times! Having a huge room certainly isn’t a bad thing, but figuring out what to do with the space, or how to break it up sometimes can be.

Since the hubs and I both work from home we figured it would be nice to have an extra office nook in our bedroom. There are times when I have some tight deadlines and may need to work late {or visa versa}, and even just being in the same room together is nice, especially since Eric travels so much for work.  Of course this would also need to be a more neutral working space that we could both feel inspired by, unlike my craft room which is just a little too… colorful for Eric’s taste.

So when World Market asked if I would like to team up to create a new office space using products from their new fall line, I jumped for joy! You probably think I’m exaggerating, but no I literally jumped for joy. I may have even knocked my chair over in the process. Haha.

If you follow my blog then you know how much I love all things rustic with a touch of modern and splash of industrial which is why I’m such a fan of World Market products. There were so many unique home office furniture options that it was difficult to narrow down my favorites, but here is the plan I put together for our new Modern Rustic Office Retreat:

Creating a mood board before decorating the space made everything soooooo much easier. I will absolutely be doing this more often and can’t believe I’ve gone this long without doing it. I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve picked up furniture or accessories and then realized after I got home that it wouldn’t work. This definitely helps to eliminate that issue while keeping you on track with your design style and vision.

Not to mention this made it a lot easier to order nearly everything online while we were away on our first mini RV adventure. A couple days later I had a bunch of packages delivered to our home, which made it really feel like Christmas in July. So much so that I snapped a photo with my phone to show the hubs.

Kobe was just happy to have some new boxes to chill on.

Here is a link to the product sources used in our space:

We recently painted our bedroom white and I have been working on editing down my accessories and keeping to more neutral tones, especially with Fall on the way.

Here are some photos of our new modern rustic office nook all set up on one side of our master bedroom:

I was so excited to display my wood slice art above the mix-and-match desk which was previously hung up in our dining room, but now it feels like it was meant to go in this space. Don’t you think?

While browsing through the area rugs I was instantly smitten by the Sari Bordered Woven rug. In fact, it may just be my favorite part of the space because it really ties everything together.

It was fun to customize the mix-and-match desk too, and I think the black base with the wood top lends itself to being both rustic and modern.

The hanging wire baskets are a great way to keep organized while keeping clutter off the desk, and I may eventually add some chalkboard wood shim tags to them. I’ve actually had a hard time finding the perfect place for my DIY rustic plant stand, but it works perfectly in this space now, yay!

And don’t even get me started on my new freakin’ adorable rhino candle holder! Oh my goodness do I love that little guy, and who wouldn’t? I placed a white and copper tapered candle inside, which I had purchased from World Market last Fall.

As soon as I saw the indigo mug I knew I had to have it. The beautiful color and organic shape seemed perfect not only as a coffee mug, but as a pen holder too. Here is the photo I recently shared as a sneak peak of the space on Instagram.

Oh and how fantastical is my new diamond concrete lamp? I think it adds the perfect touch of modern to this industrial rustic space. #ilovelamp

The industrial style shelf is where form and function come together to create a rustic storage solution that can also be used to display some of your favorite accessories. I think this shelf could work perfectly in every room of the house…magazine rack, crafts, toiletries…

I saw it as another opportunity to keep clutter and accessories off the desk, and love how our wedding photo looks in the Paper Clip Stand. This is such a whimsical way to change out photos, notes, or inspirational quotes. The vintage-style Avery clock adds even more texture and character to the space and it’s nice to look at the time without actually looking at my phone for once.

Our new office chair is super comfy and beautiful, and the color perfectly matches our navy and copper dresser, along with other navy accents in the room. The only problem is getting Kobe {our cat} to get out of it so I can actually sit down. I’m pretty sure he thinks it belongs to him. Ha.

On a side note, I did add a plastic chair mat after taking these photos, so sliding the chair in and out is a breeze.

Well that’s our new modern rustic office space, which is now my favorite nook in the house, and I can’t wait to reveal the entire room to you!

  • Katie, this is just an incredible space! I love how all the details are important and help to make the space pull together so nicely. I’m loving the industrial cart along with that rug! And anything blue? Lets just say I’m drooling over that navy chair. Love it all!

  • It’s amazing what a small world it is! I recently did a post on converting part of my bedroom into an office space. I love how your visions came together to an amazing and unique space. I need to make mine a reality! You’ve inspired me to do so.
