GET A ROOM
| Home Office Inspiration |
Welcome to Get A Room, new concept in online interior design I launched for 2018. Each month I will provide an inspiration design board for a fully designed room along with all the details and vendors so you can cherry pick the items to make your dream room a reality for your space.
What is GET A ROOM: Each month I will provide my followers with a free Vision Board complete with all the links to recreate the room in their own home. It will all be designed, matched and balanced to create a perfect room every time, all you have to do is know your room dimensions for windows, rugs and furniture pieces. Think about those box cosmetics and fashion subscriptions, it is the same idea but no charge to my followers.
Why is it FREE: First and foremost I LOVE Interior Design. I have decided, that while I personally love Industrial Farmhouse Chic and Farmhouse design is uber hot right now; I know it is not everyone’s cup of tea. As a Interior Designer I can appreciate all forms of home decor and I wanted to provide some of my other creative visions. Then, make them available to my followers, for free. Also, I get a lot of inquires about interior design for specific types of rooms, and yes I can still do some custom design work but I felt like this was the quickest platform to packaged a few universal designs, you might be able to find a design that works for you that you just love.

This month I focused on the Home Office. We actually have two home offices located in our house, since we both work from home. I think I heard a universal groan. Yes we do spend a lot of time together, 24/7 to be exact. The trick is that we each have our own work spaces that we go to, just like any other employee. Only difference is that the space is located in our home, with no commute, no dress code and no in office distractions. We actually find that we are very productive and maybe even more productive by having this luxury. The down side is we probably work twice as much as the average 9-5 worker, and at the end of the day we can leave the office but it is always just down the hall.
If you have a a home office that is your actual working office, keep two main things in mind. 1. Make sure you create the right environment to help you work properly. 2. Create a space that makes you comfortable and take advantage of the fact that you are not in a cubical and get yourself nice furniture. That means attractive and functional desks, storage cabinets and seating. A prime example would be the office chair above. It is a fun and whimsical pattern, not just boring black leather, but at the same time it is a functional rolling, swivel, desk chair. Remember office space does not have to equally boring.
Below are some great paint color options to go with this room. When I picked these paint colors, I envisioned them with a white or ivory trim. You may also notice that I kept all the colors light, to create an easy going work environment. The lighter colors will catch and reflect the light creating a very utilitarian vibe for this space. Let’s be honest the last thing you want to find yourself doing in your office is having trouble seeing.
