Wow, this stopped me in my tracks! According to WordPress, yesterday I hit my 200th post since starting this blog last fall. Thanks to all of you dear readers who check-in on my ramblings. I wish I had more time and photos to share with you!

Earlier this week I was oddly moved to enter a mood board into a online contest to update a home office. I’m not sure why, since I haven’t even contemplated decorating half the rooms Chez Dorney! I would even venture to say the biggest offender is my very own office, where I have piles of boxes, stacks of paper and a sum total of ZERO interior design effort.

This definitely isn’t my dream office line-up (below), but the task was Antro meets Coastal Living meets Restoration Hardware. This 2 hr exercise did teach me the benefit of having some vision assembled before going out to shop!

Since it’s still the month of my birthday, I have a discount at Anthropologie (how cute is that candle necklace they send in the mail!?) and I intend to use to spruce up some lucky room in our house!
