Last week I wrapped up the install for Dr. O'neal's home office and I couldn't be happier with the result. My client, Lisa, contacted me wanting to finish off her husbands home office as a surprise for his birthday in August. I was happy to help and was up for the challenging requests for this space:
1. Desk: needs to have storage, filing capabilities, a back panel to hide wires, and a hole on top for wires to drop into.
I didn't want a typical executive desk, since they tend to be so bulky and traditional- not the style we were going for. I proposed many different styles & colors but in the end we went for a desk with nice lines & a more modern feel.
2. Windows: @ 20 feet high need curtain panels to soften the space up some..
Since this was my first rodeo dealing with such high ceilings, I was a little nervous, but my seamstress made the panels so beautifully & perfect, there was really no reason to fret. My installer hung them without any problems, I was just nervous the whole time while he was up 20' in the air.
3. Seating: for hubby was a must. Lisa wanted him to have a place to lounge, read and wind down after a long day at work.
I proposed a grey leather library chair with a matching ottoman, which was the perfect choice for this space. The best part of the seating area was a super cool mini bar cabinet that I came across. It hides bottles and glasses inside and is a great addition to this manly office.
Before I show you the finished product, lets look at the design board so you can see my vision.
The space turned out exactly how I envisioned it but even better with accessories :)
I am very pleased with the space and I think the O'neal's are too! Up next is their guest room install, and I can't wait to get that room done!! #lovemyjob
design is a way of life.
