“It was funny, she thought, that before she had ever had a job she had always thought of an office as a place where people came to work, but now it seemed as if it was a place where they also brought their private lives for everyone else to look at, paw over, comment on and enjoy.” – Rona Jaffe, The Best of Everything

Perfect mix of old and new | D.L. RHEIN

We always love when a client comes back to us after we have completed a job, to help them with a new space or project.  One of our favorites was moving into a new office that had nothing but bare walls and industrial carpet.  We jumped at the chance to work with her again and create an inviting space to meet with her own clients.  As an agent, she is both business woman and therapist.  It was important to make this a place where people could feel comfortable yet inspired when visiting her at the office.  We took the pieces that would work from her old space and brought in additional items to round out the room.  The two paintings she acquired are filled with such vibrant colors, we put them front and center on the main wall so everything could play off of that.  Lavender and green embroidered pillows are a fun mix with our Turkish Velvet pillows and sumptuous shearling in the center.  A large plant adds a touch of freshness (a must in every room) and provides oxygen in a place with recirculated air.  What to do with these camel colored chairs?  Bring in our faux tortoise coffee table, one of our top finds at an antique show while hunting on a buying trip on the east coast.  A bone tray from Regina Andrew holds coffee table books and candy, while a stenciled cow hide adds another layer and covers the carpet in the center of the room.  [READ MORE…]
