Home Office Gets Bright Makeover

My client, who works from home full time in Allentown Pennsylvania, asked us to give her an office space that functions well for a hard working accountant, AND would also be a retreat for her during off work hours.   


Our Solution: Split the room down the middle; half office and half lounge area.  

We tied the spaces together through color (her obsession with teal and pink). A soft gray on the walls allows the pops of color to shine without being overwhelming.  

We refaced the fireplace and added a built in bookcase to house her love of books.  We hung the television on the wall.  Then outfitted the lounge area with soft and bright furnishings for a happy look!


For the office area we included a very capable L shaped desk that keeps my client organized.  It hides the miscellaneous but necessary office needs. Poppin was our 'go-to' place for the bold pink and teal bins and magazine/folder holders. 

We also gave her a creative way to display her kids artwork and medals from her triathlon competitions using chicken wire frames and clothes pins.  They allow her to add and remove items on a whim!

New wall sconces, comfortable furniture, and lots of fun accents bring juicy color in, even on the dreariest of days.  What a bright lovely office with lots of storage!


We used drapes purchased from a store but they ended up a little too short.  To fix that we added length!  Heres How To Fix a Short Drape.
