ONE ROOM CHALLENGE REVEAL!

one-room-challengeI am very excited for the big reveal of my finished office space which I completed just a few days ago as part of the ‘One Room Challenge’, an excellent online event that encourages design bloggers to complete a one-room project over five weeks.  I finally feel at home in my space and it is such a serene and delightful working environment.

I am happy to report that my challenges were quite minimal and mostly due to my own stress over selections.  Things went remarkably smoothly.  As a reminder, my goal was to take a very blank, white-wall, black-floor office space and turn it into something that expressed my design aesthetic while remaining functional and professional for a work space.  It was important to me that the space was not too extreme or too strong stylistically.  As a practicing interior designer I work with clients who want both traditional and modern spaces.  I did not want to completely alienate anyone.

An eclectic mix was also important, firstly because it is my aesthetic, but also because I deal in vintage and antique furniture and make throw pillows from vintage fabrics.  I wanted to feature my product in the space, but wanted to be sure the space did not become a cluttered area for all my finds.  I am not quite an antiques store!

Neutrals were important to me, and keeping enough white so I had a good background when working on more colorful designs for clients.  If everything in my space was emerald or leopard I know it would be difficult to put together a subtle pastel scheme.

And of course I cannot resist working with a color scheme that coordinates with my Mini Schnauzer! I am so glad I managed to snap her pic while she was doing her best three-quarter ‘end-of-the-runway’ pose!

You did a beautiful job and definitely accomplished your goals! The space is very classy and I think it will appeal to all types of clientele. It’s obviously a representation of your good taste and interior design skills. You’re placement of furniture, accessories and art are a clear sign that you know what you’re doing…and, you’re doing it well! Good job girl! It’s awesome!

You inspire me, Christa! Reading your posts of weekly progress is such a motivating example of how we move through designing. Love your secondary place to sit, the architectural storage, bar cart, aesthetic theme, art, accessories, etc! Just divine. I would love going to work in your office.
