Home Help - Office Placement

I'm sure you are all wondering what our new house looks like - and I promise to start showing rooms as we get them completed.  Right now, I need help in choosing which spare bedroom to turn into an office.  Patrick has a lot of St. Louis Cardinals memorabilia and he can't wait to put together a Redbirds office. 

Here is what our bedroom layout looks like:

The blue room on the left is the guest bedroom and the blue room on the right is the master bedroom.  The orange is the hallway and the green and purple rooms are what we are trying to decide what to do with.  We want to use one room now for an office and the other room will *eventually* become a nursery.  The big question is, which room should be which?  Patrick & I have differing opinions, so I'm asking for your opinion.  Which room would you use for the office and why?

Thanks for your advice!


  1. Oh darling! If you plan to be having little ones scampering all around your new home, the best idea would be to shelter them from as much hallway traffic as possible. Heavens-to-Betsie! You wouldn't want a child hearing any ruckus from the hallway now, would you? No! The poor babe will need to be in peace and calm. I say make the nursery the green room. Take it from me, you will be glad you did. Tah-tah!

  2. I think it depends on how long it will be before y'all plan to start a family. The baby should probably be close by so that when you stumble out of bed 5 times a night you won't be running a marathon. However, if it's going to be a long wait, an office right beside the bedroom is lovely. Just my 2cents.

  3. I may be in the minority but I think it is a good idea to have the baby room down the hall from the parents room. If you want to get more than a few hours of sleep a night you will want to create an environment where your child is not going to feel like you will come running every time they coo. Plus, having the room away from both hallways will help the baby sleep through times when you have people over.


I'd love to hear from you!
