Its so exciting when you finally get that corner office all to yourself!...but in this case, my client was given a corner office, in a basement, with half of a window and drab furnishings. We needed a major makeover in this space and surprisingly it didn't take much effort!
This empty office was cold and stale. My client was given typical office furniture out of the storage closet and horrible wall art. She desired a warm inviting space that was a getaway from her highly stressful job.
Fortunately, the existing accent wall wasn't such a terrible color and she had a few unused pieces from her home office that we could incorporate.
A few of her must haves for her space were: organization, interesting art, and a functional layout. We started by creating a layout that made her office feel larger and could hold up to two more guest if needed.
Kirkland's had our interesting art. My client fell in LOVE with these African ladies she affectionately named "Sasha & Malia". Their warm pallet went very well with the accent wall and set the tone for the rest of the space.
As far as organization goes we wanted to keep it functional yet decorative. The framed bulletin board makes her reminders look a little prettier and the woven baskets beautifully hold important files and documents.
We added a floor lamp with a warm light to keep the space calm and serene so that she could tackle those morning emails in peace.
Filling desktops and bookshelves with interesting nick knacks and personal photos always makes an office feel a little cozier.
My client is thoroughly enjoying her new office! Lets just hope she can get a little work done :)
