My client Amy was looking to solve three problems…she needed a new rug that would compliment her desk, not take away from it; shades for privacy and to keep heat out; and finally, a nice piece of art. Her style is super modern in a neutral pallet.
Her previous rug had a stripe in it, which clashed with the pattern on her desk. For her new rug, we selected the Giulia. This rug not only has a ton of texture to it but it’s super soft and comfy to walk on, which was important to her since she has all tile flooring. The Giulia rug has nice silver accents to it as well. We went with an 8’6 square rug to ground the desk in her office.
She fell in love with a piece of art we had on our showroom floor. This piece came in a smaller square size so we customized it to a 75″W X 36″H to fill and balance her large wall. It is always fun to add a pop of black in any room so we added a matte black gallery float frame to finish this beautiful piece.
Throughout her home, including her office, we have done custom shades. She has large windows throughout her home so she wanted something that kept the heat from pouring into her home but also ones that offered privacy without being a complete blackout shade. These shades we installed into her home do just that. They sit in a panel right below the trim of her window, complimenting it nicely and making it almost unnoticeable when closed!
This is such a fresh and beautiful looking office for her to enjoy working in. We still have lamps and accessories to work on. I always enjoy working with her and hearing about her fun, modern ideas. Everyone has a different vision they want for their home, it’s so much fun to capture their style and bring that to life. Amy is loving her new office and how cozy it now is!
