Home Office E-Design

I'm really excited to share an e-design I did for a new client. She e-mailed me asking for help with her home office. She needed a place that she could work from home when she needed to as well as her husband (ie. no girly stuff!) and she needed a lot of storage for pretty and non-pretty items! Her home is actually local to me so I popped over for a visit to check out the space.

 At 10' x 8'6" it's a nice size room and has just one window.  Who doesn't have a room like this in their home?  We wanted to get the room looking light and bright but not boring. Here's the final design board!

The wall paint Benjamin Moore: Nimbus 1465 is a soft grey that will lighten up the room.
For the furniture I stayed light as well. The desk is a glass top and has a chrome X base. The chair is a medium grey leather with silver nailhead accents that compliment the desk base.

I chose the oh-so-loved Ikea Expedit bookcase in white for her storage. I love how you can pick and choose how much you want to use as display and how much you want to use as pure storage. And if over time she needs more storage she can add baskets.

She expressed the need for additional seating as well, something with high sides if she wanted to keep an eye on her son so we chose a modern shaped, small scale club chair.

Now for some color!  First I started with the blue and white fretwork drapes. By framing out the window with drapes and mounting the drapes close to the ceiling it will add height to the room and the window will appear larger. I found the very cool yellow, grey and blue ikat accent pillow on etsy and a yellow desk lamp to compliment it!  All of the prints in the space- fretwork, chevron and ikat give the room an updated, modern style!

I can't wait to see the finished room and will be sure to share the "after" pics with all of you!

  1. Kelly, I love the look you did for the room! It's definitely gender neutral but still very classy and sophisticated. Thanks for sharing with us! xo

  2. Love this. I am a HUGE fan of chevron so that might be why :) But I also love the pattern mix.

  3. The elements actually look good. What more if we could see the end result? Can't wait for your update.
