Mad Men Style Home Office with Joybird Furniture

When we moved from our home in Scottsdale, AZ to Charlotte, NC, we knew that Kevin (playfully, I call him Super Husband on Social Media) would still have mostly work at home days. Because the Arizona home office had built ins, we knew that when we arrived here Kevin would need a whole new office set up. And this time, I was going to make sure it was actually decorated. 

Joybird helped us give him a dream space by gifting beautiful furniture and accessories, and I did a lot of antiquing to find most of the rest. The look I was going for (aka, the title of this post) was inspired by the sets of Mad Men. Very masculine and clean lined, but with pops of color and of course, plants.

Kevin didn't want the whole room painted a color, but he conceded when I offered to have just the ceiling and trim painted. I chose Sherwin Williams Arugula which is featured in their in store brochures. The ceiling is painted in a flat paint and the trim is semi-gloss. The walls are SW Extra White. There are many wonderful inspiring examples of gorgeous painted ceilings, but I especially want to call out my friend, Natalie Papier of Home Ec who is always inspiring with her color choices. She specifically features a similar color in her living room of her own home.

To finish the look we added a palm tree, for more green, and on the console I added a highball set and canisters from a local antique mall as accents. Above the console, the abstract art is also thrifted. At another antique mall I found the art lamp to the left. 
On the wall by the window, a neon sign from the Keith Haring limited edition by Yellow Pop is featured. Not gonna lie. We argued over what room this piece would go in. In the end, We both love it here.
