Master Bedroom Details: Make a Cozy Office Nook!

One of my favorite parts of our new Bedroom Makeover is the office nook we carved out in the room. It’s my favorite spot to sit in the mornings and check email. This is our peaceful retreat.

I got a lot of questions on the Bedroom Reveal post about the rug and the desk in that area. Both are from one of my favorite furniture sources – DownEast Home.


DownEast has amazing clothes, which most people probably know. But some of the stores also carry furniture and home accessories too. And when I went in looking for inspiration for my master bedroom makeover, I also discovered that they have a whole new line of rugs that they carry. I fell in love with the modern Herringbone style of this one and it was also the perfect coral color that I wanted to use as an accent color in my room!

And it went so well with the office chair I reupholstered and painted to go in the nook.

I dropped by my local DownEast Home the other day and took a few shots with my iPhone. They have some amazing furniture pieces — tables, chairs, desks, dressers, kids furniture and more. The inventory really flucuates and I find I have the most success if I go in pretty frequently to see what is new.


I had a lot of people asking where DowenEast stores are located – Utah, Nevada, Idaho, California, Colorado, Washington and Wyoming. You can find all of the location details HERE.


Do you have a favorite or secret decor spot that YOU love?? 

Share your favorites with me in the comments.

I would love to know what YOUR favorites are!

  1. The new home office is airier and lovelier. It is simple yet beaming with details and shades. Lovely makeover, indeed. Thanks for listing down the sources of your home improvement goodies as well.

  2. Redoing our office and totally in love with your desk. I am wondering who made it? I know you bought it at Down East but don’t they bring things in from different manufacturers? Wondering if there is a name on the bottom or anything. Would love to hunt it down!!!

    • Leigh Anne@YourHomebasedMom » There’s nothing underneath, sorry! I looked! I can’t find anything with a manufacturer name. Maybe it’s custom for Downeast!

  3. I love Downeast furniture and they also have really cute clothes! There’s another furniture store that has a similar style to them that I also equally love which is at http://4-chairs.com/. Between these 2 furniture stores I am hopelessly addicted!

  4. I love your little office nook in your bedroom. I used to have one and miss it. Darn downsizing.

  5. Loving this office nook. I soon plan to embark on my office journey. They have to be a great reflection of who you are and also inspire you! Looks like yours does both!

  6. I LOVE your office nook!! It looks so good – great job! And I am obsessed with the rug and desk…if only there were a DownEast in Georgia :)

  7. Jen, I love that you mixed the patterns of the rug and chair. It makes me nervous to mix patterns, but you really pulled it together. Wish I could do that!

  8. I LOVE the office nook Jen!! I would love to pay bills or answer emails with all that natural light and outdoors to look at beyond the computer screen. Lovely!! And, I adore the color scheme. The rug is to die for. Too bad I don’t live close to any of the store locations. Do they have an online store?
