Need your help!

Speaking of disasters, I am about to publicly shame the BF to finally let me makeover his office!

Please no mean comments here...I understand it is his space and he can do what he likes with it. My issue is that it is directly off of the family room and when I sit on the couch at night it is in my direct line of view. Not to mention that every person that should step foot in our apartment has to look at this as soon as they walk in...not my idea of a warm welcome.

So, without further ado- THE OFFICE

view from the door and pretty much what I look at from the couch
where is his floor??

where is his desktop??



So...this is where you all come in. PLEASE (I'm begging here) leave him a comment telling him to just let me at it already.



I promise it will be masculine, organized, fit for an MBA grad, and most importantly fit for the best BF ever!




Thanks in advance...really you have no idea how much I appreciate this help :)

ok bf ... time to let gf organize your office for you. yup, she's really great at this organizing thing and i have a sneaky feeling you'll love what she does and somehow be more productive. PLUS when the gf is happy the bf is happy and organization makes us woman very happy.

Ok, I totally know how you feel. My husband will NOT let me design his office/man cave. Here I am, with an interior design degree, and he will NOT trust me!

So....


Dude, let her take the wheel!

Based on how wonderful the magazine organization went...and her great taste she exhibits in all of her posts, you should REALLY let her organize your office! Think of how much work you could get done :)

Oh linds it is bad!

Ok BF you must give in and let Linds do what she wants. I swear she will still make it manly and organzied and then she will stop bugging you about it.

Hmmm whatelse how about just pretty, pretty please and if you let Linds to do I'll send over a batch of my famous brownies!

OMG - that room needs serious help!!!

Christine said...

The boy just needs some shelves or cubbies or something to organize all that STUFF. Once it's off the ground and properly stored away, he'll be so much happier. Clutter = stress and Stress = Unhappy girlfriend

Don't you know if the girlfriend is happy, everyone is happy? Plus, that office is sad!!!

Stephanie Sabbe said...

ha, ha, that's awesome. If I didn't have a neat freak husband I could totally let my office (if I had one) get like this, except it would be fabric instead of paper.

Let your very decorativaly talented girlfriend into your office! She's probably running out of rooms to decorative anyway.

I think I see a dead cat in there....
Dear Linds' BF - when she's all done, you can think of it as a "trophy room." ;)

KatyO! said...

too funny!! (and I have the same exact office chair - courtesy of my husband!)

Mr. BF You are one lucky man to have a GF who WANTS to clean your office and make it amazing for you!!!
Just imagine how nice it will be to go into a clean and organized office where you can work and/or relax (plus once it's done - it's done, case closed!)

Emily said...

Oh no! The possibilities here are endless. Just THINK of how much time will be saved when everything is neat and organized.

Let her at it! I am sure you will not be disappointed!

Design Esquire said...

I agree with everyone else. Let the professional organize the room, which once completed, will save you time and energy. I completely agree that clutter = stress. If Linds is anything like me, just seeing that room would stress me out, every single night. She's a professional and she loves you, she will make it awesome.

It could be quite brilliant...

How old is this guy? That's the office of a 19 year old, not an adult with a successful career.

Stop being a slob!

Laura@JourneyChic said...

Hah hah! That is indeed one disaster area. I know that some people like to "organize" using piles, but this is rather out of control. I'm sure you'll be able to put something manly together that will make working and studying much easier and enjoyable for him. Heck, I don't know how he even finds a pen in there! Good luck! :)

Dear BF,

Men's spaces can be very manyly but at the same time put together. Your GF has great taste and will not do you wrong!

Please give this man plenty of vertical storage. Lots and lots of vertical storage.
