The His version of the "His and Hers Office"

Well, well, well. So we meet again. I need to start this post with something completely unrelated. Something I saw yesterday that I feel inclined to share with the world today. So, I was at my least favorite retailer in the world, ahem Wal-Mart. We have this love/hate relationship. I mean, I love a good roll back, but I hate Wal-Mart. That's how it works. So I was making my way to the snack aisle to pick up this new snack that I have discovered. I need to be honest with you all here. It is called "Indulgent Trail Mix." It has nuts, white chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, golden raisins and cranberries. I am telling you all this in fear that I might need to be committed due to my obsession. I want this stuff morning, noon and night. I am hoping you all will find your way to get some as well, so I am not in this alone. After all, misery likes company. Any way, so  I am making my way down the aisle and suddenly I start smelling smoke. I look down and a man is smoking a cigarette, with oxygen, on a scooter. All I can say, is only in Wal-Mart. Why I did not snap a photo in that instant to post to www.peopleofwalmart.com, I will never know. I froze. I was so disoriented that I ran my cart directly into his scooter. Then I went and told on him. The end. Let's get down to the biz.

Here we have it. The his version of the "His and Hers Office"(horn sounding). What I was looking to achieve here was a classically designed space with shades of modern. My guy loves classy and sophisticated pieces but also leans toward scientific accents and sentimental adornments. In our loft, he used to have a "corner" with all of his awesome things. Now he gets a room. Moving on up. A side note here, the computer is really where it is at in this space. Let's face it. He wanted me to show exactly what his office setup is going to be: four computer monitors stacked together to create what I call "the control center." That's right fellas. Eat your hearts out. He will be running the world from this "his" office in Richmond. Glamour. 


Do not forget to enter yourselves into the Modern Spark giveaway for a chance to win yourself a fancy pillow. I am contemplating creating an alias so I can participate.

  1. i love your walmart story equally as much as I love this room. I bet my husband wishes he could have even one piece from that board in our house here. He had a huge man office space in our Pawleys house that was so southern gentlemen lounge not neon sports garage-ish and all of it is in boxes in the garage still in Pawleys. Never quite made it on the truck to Richmond. Ooops. Our house is just smaller here so no room. Might need to find a niche for him like this board.

    1. No, no, no. None of these pieces are from Wal-mart. No rollbacks here! :)

    1. Lord. Thankfully I am not the only one. It is honestly a disgusting obsession. Confession, I wake up in the middle of night craving a handful. Pathetic and embarrassing moment.
