one room, many options ::

any time i work on a design board for a client, i always tell them that what i’m presenting are only a few of the options available.  we take the pieces they love, whether it’s a color, piece of furniture, or rug, and build on those things until we have the perfect plan for their space!

office design board1

the design for this client’s home office was no different … i took the elements that we discussed at our first meeting and worked them into an initial design board.  when my client said she wanted to bring in some black and white elements for a nod to her dalmatian friends, we made a few tweaks to come up with the inspiration board i shared with you yesterday.  so remember that when you’re working on a design project in your home, design is ever-changing … once you find something that you absolutely love, work the rest of the room’s design around that to create the home of your dreams!


black & white & beautiful all over ::

there’s a first time for everything … and this is the first time i’ve ever been asked to design an office with a hint of black & white for a “dalmatian inspired” look {oh, but it must be classy … not that kitschy look}!  perfect for my client whose business revolves all around our furry friends!

inspiration board office

my client had a whole folder full of design ideas that she wanted incorporated in her new office {only trouble was that not all of the ideas melded well together} …. and since her business is filled with four legged, furry clients, the space needed to be low maintenance and easy to clean.  she loves pale blue tones and requested black and white accents, a nod to her two darling dalmatians.  so, voila!  here’s our plan for my client’s new office!
