One of my readers, Rose, recently hired me to do a consultation, including an Inspiration Board for her home office. Since she works at home and is in this space all the time, she was tired of not loving it and wanted to move in a new direction. She liked the wall color OK, but was definitely open for a change. She did have a great looking Pottery Barn white desk and chair, as well as some functional and neutral white bookcases, so the room is basically a blank slate.
This is the door coming into the office.
And this is the corner to the left of her desk, which I thought needed better utilizing.
And she has plenty of storage space with these 3 bookcases.
I got to work and came up with some ideas, after Rose told me she loves blues and greens. She was also open for some pretty seating in this space and that corner above to the left of the window would be the perfect spot for that. I gave her a detailed plan on paper and also a pretty Inspiration board and I think Rose is ready to rock n’ roll in this room now. She said she’s already scheduled the painters.
For additional wall storage, I suggested she get some Ballard Designs shelves (pictured on the board), since they are great for adding storage on the wall.
Here’s the board I came up with, pretty shades of aqua blue, a little green thrown in and red as the accent. Click on the board to see all the details of each item at Polyvore:
