Interior Designed: Black and White Farmhouse Inspired Office

interior designed home office decorating plansAll week last week during the 6 Days of Spring, I shared bits and pieces of my moodboard for an interior designed farmhouse inspired office makeover. I was inspired by black and white spaces, and even though there’s a bit of my beloved aqua here and there, the main scheme is turning it into a black & white beauty. I’m all about pulling together mood boards to make sure that it’s all going to look good together, and I thought I’d share my Black & White Farmhouse Inspired Office.

Interior Designed Black and White Farmhouse Inspired Office Moodboard
wall paint, paint chips, interior design, painting, interior paint
The first thing I always do to a space is paint. It makes a huge change for just a little money, in just a few hours. Three walls are white, with the 4th painted black – not chalkboard but a regular latex. I chose Restoration Hardware colors Right White & Obsidian. It’s a great pair that works so well together.
Besides the black & white, I also added in a dash of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, using Paris Grey and Florence. 
area rug, west elm, farmhouse style, interior designed
I did buy a few things, including this Cable Knit Pattern Rug from West Elm. Can you believe that it was on clearance for only $49 for a 5×8 rug? Yeah – run get ya one before they sell out!
farmhouse style,, modern clock, wall clock, wall art
I also found an amazing modern style clock at Target. I found mine on clearance in store for $4.98, but they also have them online for only $6.99.
Eivor curtains, Ikea, drapes, drapery, interior designed
Another fun purchase was from my favorite place on earth – IKEA! I ordered their Eivor Curtains online, with shipping 2 sets came to about $40 (and I don’t know that I could have made 2 sets for that.)
vintage style light, schoolhouse light, flush mount lighting, Home Depot
Since I made everything else all about me, I replaced the light, too. There’s a little DIY that went on, but it started with this farmhouse inspired light. I’m going to share how I Gina-ed it up, so keep your eyes peeled for that one. I mean, when you start with a $30 light, you can play with it a little, ya know?
cottage, shabby chic, cabinet, armoire, hutch, furniture, white, storage, organization
Now let’s talk about furniture! Of course, we build all of ours, but I did find some very similar pieces online just to share the look. I needed a big cabinet to hold all the stuff that I use, and so Mr. SCC got his build on and made me a huge piece that works perfectly. If you like the one above, you can find it at Target for about $200.
white cottage style farmhouse dining table
I already owned a farmhouse table that Mr. SCC built a few years ago, and it’s a huge workspace that is perfect for my needs. It’s a little different from the white farmhouse table above, but if you’re loving the look you can find that one at
And now you have a sneak peek into my interior designed office! We’re almost to the big reveal of my farmhouse inspired office, but I’ve got just a few more projects to show before we get there.

  1. Your mood board is wonderful, Gina. You have a great eye for pulling things together. xo Diana
    ps. I wanted to tell you-but maybe you already know- when I open your blog I get two or three pop-ups-one right on top of the other that I must deal with before I can read your blog…..

  2. Those curtains are so fun looking. I like black and white and seem to be using quit a bit around my house. Looking forward to seeing the final results.

  3. Beautiful! Those curtain panels are to die for!

  4. How much patience do you think this one person has?? I NEED to see your office! Ooooh, I know it’s gonna be fantastic! I have that same table you show…got it at a yard sale for $15, but the top is warped. Got on line and found that turning it upside down, in the sun, might help. Any other ideas? Anyone?

  5. I love black and white, but I don’t think I could pull it off – I have to many bits and pieces of stuff that wouldn’t fit in. But then again, I never thought of painting all the bits and pieces. Hmmmm….


  6. I LOVE the mood board! You should go link up at Design Your Dwelling today. I adore that rug! Can’t wait to see the finished room!

  7. Great board, I love black and white together. It is so classic, I can’t wait to see the finished room.


  8. Ever since seeing your sneak peek on IG, I’ve been waiting for this post! I can’t believe those curtains are from IKEA….they are to die for! And of course, what’s not to love about a farmhouse table?

  9. Gina – Your room looks like it is going to be delightful!! The mood board really sets the tone and yours looks great!


  10. Great post, I love the idea of a black and white themed office. Can’t wait to see the reveal.

  11. I also love black & white and have been using it a lot lately, my kitchen, deck and other places. I live in an old farm house and black and white is so classic. Love it.

  12. This will be gorgeous! I’m dying over those curtains. STUNNING!

  13. Love your board. I’m re-doing our spare bedroom in gray’s, black, white and splashes of purple and lime green. I bought those very drapes from IKEA and I love them!!
