Olive Green in the Office at Pine Cottage

Yesterday, my indefatigable mother and I painted the wood paneling in our office den. This is going to be the place where my husband and I both work from home. My goals are to make it super inviting and cosy, but to also respect the fact that we live in a 1925 Craftsman cottage. I also wanted a masculine Rudyard Kipling kind of vibe. 

Here are my three inspiration photos:

And here is a sneak peek at the new color on the walls - Moss Tone is the name. I just used the generic TruValue Hardware paint available at our local Seed & Feed store. The room is by no means done. We don't even have a desk or a desk chair yet. So I'm on the hunt for some great leathery looking furniture pieces. Slow and steady wins the race. 

Here's a before photo:
