In case you haven’t figured it out already, I am SOOO excited to move into the new design studio (less than 8 weeks away, fingers crossed). And while I have a set budget, I do have free reign to prioritize those monies in the way I think will create the best space for me to not only be my most creative, but also hopefully inspire my employees and clients.
Here are the key spaces that will be in the new office:
If you had told me 3 years ago that I would have used lavender in my business lobby I would have thought you were crazy. Never say never.
Actually, the whole space will be my usual look, which is very white, light, bright and airy. The only ‘color’ here will be in the rug and a couple of accent pillows, and it will be lavender!
The conference room will also be painted white, but with accents of pale blue, turquoise and pale green. More in my ‘traditional,’ coastal color palette.
My office is going to have white, painted built in cabinets on the back wall with an opening in the center for me to place this fabulous painting by Honora Jacobs. I believe art makes such a huge impact, so this is my splurge for the space.
I’ve selected polished chrome cabinet pulls and handles, with knobs in a crystal egg shape. The walls will be the palest blue and the rug a soft shimmery color called Moonstone. My desk and chair will be commercial grade materials which will hold up to everyday use. Everything else in the space is geared more for a residential feel.
Speaking of a residential feel, how many company offices have pink walls? Not too many. My office manager wanted pink in her space, so we’ve selected a pale pink paint and a fun, casual rug. She will also get commercial grade desk and storage for the practicalities of everyday business, but who says you can’t have fun?
When we get moved in we will have a fabulous party and I hope you can come. If not, I’ll be sure to post some pictures of the finished spaces for you to see.
