Fred’s Office Meets Susan’s Collections!

Next stop is our home office! While we basically have a modernized clean open concept, the office space has found a home for our collection of vintage cameras. Originally designed with his and her matching desks, the office has a more masculine tone with deep tones in accessories and art.

We used a dimensional  wallpaper that truly looks like pieced herringbone wood. Burlap was refined with a lining and then tailored to make a roman shade that’s trimmed with a horned button selection. It is rustic, yet cool. I will use an accent lamp anywhere for warmth and charm. In the evenings I make my rounds around the home to turn them on.

I’ve been known to talk Fred into stopping on the roadside when I see interesting wood specimens. These hollowed wood cuts were just that! The tones work perfectly in this room. A pair of framed pheasant feathers completes the collage.

Fred has a passion for photography and it didn’t take much for me to stay on the hunt for vintage cameras in all shapes and sizes! I was thrilled that some of my favorite collections of cameras, trophies and favorite trinkets could be at home here. I’ll be honest, it’s a real mess when the cleaning crew comes through!

Art above the bookcase is original photography by my son-in-law, Marc. These were photographed in Paris and mounted on vintage dictionary pages, they are cherished.

The office is a collectors joy and is used for home office work and correspondence. Love, love, love.
