A writer's haven in the making

Henry and I are on a little road trip to Michigan this week to visit friends and family (I'm loving the freedom of this gig already ;) Here's an office/guest room mood board I'm working on for a friend of mine. Deets and before and afters at a later date but I want to give you something pretty to look at this week. 

We're going from LOTS of pattern and darkish walls and trying to hit a bright and cozy note. It also needs to be inviting enough to write a good book. This rug is similar to hers which is a great piece to work from. The futon, desk and her office chair are staying (with some updates) and she has tons of art and family photos that we need to hang in a more cohesive way. Here's what I sent her last night. I think it's a pretty good start, don't you?
