Feature Friday: Emily’s Stylish Office

If you haven’t met Emily Clark yet, you are in for a treat today. A stylish and so adorable,young interior designer from Charlotte, NC, Emily is a force to be reckoned with in decorating a space.

I’m sharing her newly designed office space today, which she shared here on her blog recently. We are stylin’ office space sistahs now! Her’s is moody, fresh and modern.

Emily says this about her office space:

It had inevitably become “that room” after we moved in, where we threw all of the stuff we weren’t using elsewhere.  When I decided to get serious about my design business last fall, I knew this was no place to get inspired.  So, I went to work creating a home office–on a budget, of course.

She opted for dark gray walls with pops of color to bring in some style and sophistication.  I love this green painted campaign dresser she found thrifting.  It works perfect in her space and gives it that WOW factor. Emily used a combination of flea market, vintage finds that she personalized herself and some smart shopping at Ikea and Overstock, produced some great items for her space.  I’ll let you go over to Emily’s post for all the details.  She has another post up too that answers even more questions, in case you have them. Her aunt made the window treatments and I love the pop of texture and print on the windows. She shopped wisely and inexpensively for her room and it all came together so beautifully.   This dresser color is just genius.  Don’t be afraid to go bold on a piece like this to add some modern effects to a room. I also am partial to Emily’s gallery wall.  It’s so very stylish! I hope you enjoyed seeing yet another office space done on a budget.  I just couldn’t wait to share this with all of you who might not have seen it otherwise.  Having a great space to work in is the best thing!

And I hope you’ll go on over and say hello to Emily.  She’s a sweetheart!

  4. What a great makeover! I love those gray walls with the white furniture and accents. The dresser adds so much personality to the space. I know she will love working in that space. Such a fabulous look!


  5. Well deserved spotlight on Emily’s office! I loved watching her through the process, too. Fabulous job Emily and thanks Rhoda for the feature! *New to Southern Hospitality and love it!*

  8. It’s gorgeous! I absolutely love those curtains! We just painted our office a very similar color so it was nice to get some ideas of how someone else would decorate it.

  9. how fabulous! i love it all. one of these days my office will look like that. i have the dark brown ikea shelves like she has in white. now i just need to desks. i want to get L-shape wood desk. one for me and one for the hubs.

  10. I think her wall color looks amazing and really makes the green piece POP.. off to check out her blog…

  11. I have “that room” in my house too. It’s supposed to be my home office, but I find myself moving around the house with my laptop because I feel stifled in that room. However, some of these ideas (like that amazing shelving unit) could be employed to bring back my own creative space….. I’ll have to ruminate on that. 🙂

  12. What a great space! How could not be inspired when you have such a great space to work in. Sadly, my office is also “that room”.

  13. I love the dark gray walls – and that green dresser is to die for! I need to get a little more adventurous.

  14. I love the curtains! The wall color is perfect and would lend itself to any change in decor.

  15. I love Emily’s office! From the gallery wall to the green campaign dresser, to the fabulous drapes (love the print)! And, is that a JCrew dress? If so, I love that because I have one in white!

    Thanks Rhoda for featuring her office today!

  16. It’s all gorgeous!

  17. I love this room so much! It’s a great space and I LOVE the color green =)
    This inspires me for my office in the bedroom!!

  18. Hi Rhoda–It’s been too long! What a fabulous office space! I do love the green credenza, and LOVE the drapery fabric! That is my favorite part of the room. I bet she loves working in there!

    Have a wonderful weekend,

  19. I officially have office space envy now — as it I didn’t already have it seeing your space! 😉 Gorgeous!!!!
