Since having Luke (our 5 month old) and unexpectedly selling our house & moving to a new one a couple of months ago, I’ve felt like time has truly been passing at the speed of light. It’s been a whirlwind. I don’t think life ever really slows down but I think it might calm a little once our house is through construction. Since being in such a busy phase, I haven’t had the chance to take many photos of finished projects to share…
Before Luke was born, I began working with a client who occasionally works from home and wanted to have her office redesigned. The project was installed when I was around 9 months pregnant & when I was able to visit afterwards, I had my brand new baby with me so there wasn’t time to take pictures. I received the sweetest thank you card in the mail from her last week that she’d made from photos of the office & I just had to share!
Here’s what the loft office looked like when we started:
My client has very defined tastes and she’s a minimalist. I think she’s also the neatest person I’ve EVER known. (I’m seriously envious of how perfectly she keeps her home/ office.) She likes her spaces to feel clean & open & airy & natural and loves a warm modern feeling. We decided to reuphoster a pair of her existing chairs & to change out pretty much everything else.
Here’s what it looks like now:
We used a glass table between her reupholstered chairs so that the view from the new daybed to the living room below would be unimpeded. To make the daybed exactly as my client wanted it, she & her (SUPER-handy!!) husband actually cut down the legs of the daybed for a lower/less traditonal vibe and painted the feet. We used some of my fern star linen for throw pillows on it.
We used a lot of glass & metal throughout the space but the live edge desk is one of my favorite pieces in the room. We had it made by the Lorimer Workshop. It’s a live edge top on metal legs. I love it juxtaposed against the white leather & chrome chair.
I’m off for an installation (so be sure to check out instagram where I’ll be posting photos of the project) but hope you enjoyed & thank you so much to my client for sending me the photos!!
