I have been in LOVE with my office since the #redux about a year ago.  Shame on me for not photographing it sooner, but to be honest, a messy desk is a busy desk, and we have been fortunate to be very “messy”…I have a before picture, but I am ashamed to share.  Picture this, all matching dark wood furniture, a dreaded corner (ewe) desk and everyday taupe office chair on casters!  ahhhhh!  I cant even think of it, makes me (((shudder)))  Needless to say, it was less than inspiring.  It got the point that I didn’t want to work in there, like ever.  So, I got a plan together to rearrange the layout, began researching my “If I could redo my office…what would I really want” furniture finds and began doing what we do best.  Designing a dream space.

I amped up the color palette, creams, grays, whites, navy, and mint, I do love me some mint nowadays.  Added a textured natural sea grass to the back wall, re purposed the two espresso bookshelves, two file cabinets, flanking the bench-literally measured 72 times to make sure it would all fit along the back wall, and it literally looked like if I hand made each piece, it couldn’t have fit in any better,  floating the desk in the center of the space that house two Louis XVI ghost chairs.  Added the famous Arco floor lamp [which I die for] that leans over the entire space in lieu of an overhead fixture and mounted a modern 60″ linear electric fireplace. [I know, I know…electric…I researched a bio fuel burning one but I like the ambiance of the sparks flame all year round and didn’t want the heat, ya know…?]  I did find one that was super chic, liner flame like a sparks and clear glass chips to ground the flames and adds a reflective quality that is so pretty.   I found some ginormous table lamps at a local retailer that fit the space perfectly while shopping for a client, [I always do that] and finished off the space with some floor to ceiling linen drapery panels…And Viola!

Of course, my husband being the very sensible and techy man that he is, thought that floating the desk with all the logistics of running a business would be a nightmare…ssssshhhh, what you dont see wont hurt you.  I assured him we would figure it out and he did, he’s so good.

What is my favorite part?  I thought you would never ask…it has to be the Charcoal linen, tufted mod bench with silver nail head trim, in lieu of an office chair.  DIE.  Pretty ingenious if I do say so myself.  Just adds an unexpected design element to an office space, and oh so functional.

Take a look at my finished studio space!  I LOVE IT, and I hope it inspires you to take a “problem” space to the next level, this space was definitely  CURED.  Need help rocking out your home or office?  Give us a call!
