I am currently working on a project where the client has decided to demo the linen cabinets of an upstairs hallway and create a built-in desk in it’s place.  The space is on the children’s wing of the house and opens up to a loft playroom. I think this is going to be a great use of space! Of course, I had to go searching for inspiration…

Dual work spaces and lots of room to display inspiration!

Awhile back, I featured a blog post titled, “The Un-Office Office Space” – featuring some chic, stylish office spaces that are the epitome of the generic “anti-office” space. Especially for home offices, many want a space that reflects the style of the rest of the home.  So when I recently saw this feature of stylish home offices on House Beautiful online, I knew I had to share more chic office spaces!

For more photos, and to see who’s office belongs to whom, read the full article here.

Always one to want to know what the Kardashian sisters are up to, I was in awe of this home office featured on CasaSugar designed by Jeff Andrews for Khloe Kardashian.  Khloe was introduced to Los Angeles based interior designer Jeff Andrews by his client Ryan Seacrest. (Coincidently, Jeff Andrews works with the same art gallery as I do and I had heard a lot about his project for Ryan at the time.)

Being that Khloe’s style is young and glamorous, but with an appreciation for traditional – the concept for the home office (and the entire house) was “glam-traditional.”  Here’s a sneak peek of the office (and I can’t wait to see the rest of the house in the future!):

The pair of guest chairs are vintage and Khloe already had them but didn’t love them so Jeff reupholstered in a fabric with a subtle sparkle.

To add glitz and dimension, the back of the bookshelves were lined with antique mirror.  The chandelier adds glamour and Jeff customized the piece by adding cut black crystals (purchased separately and added on).

The walls are painted in Benjamin Moore Stone (a shade of gray lavender) and the ceiling in a lighter shade of lavender (Angelika).  For the window treatments, they used sheers in charcoal/purple color which help to glam up the space.  The mirrored desk and side table along with other accessories pull everything together.

Look forward to seeing the rest of the house!

The Un-Office Office Space

The Los Angeles Times recently featured an article on (home) offices titled “The Un-Office Office.” Isn’t it true that many of our work spaces are part of our homes and hence, they become an extension of a living room, a dining room, a bedroom, maybe even a closet. Here are some work spaces that I think demonstrate the “un-office” office:
