Sorry for the lack of posts, it's been a crazy week.

Designer Jennifer Delonge's amazing office, have you seen her entire fresh + funky home? If not, let me know, I'll be happy to post it...{it's fashionably cool}

While I'm on the subject, I had to mention her new line of graphic prints......

This is a snapshot of my office, it's definitely a work in progress.

The walls are a deep chocolate, the desk is white lacquer, and my chair is far from finished. {see below} I found that baby one Christmas Eve {day} just waiting for me on the side of the road. I've been known to stop traffic for a find with good any case, I'm going to cover it in a rich, warm coral velvet and spray the legs a high gloss white...My rug is sea grass and the windows are going to be covered in floor to ceiling white, duck cloth drapes...for a shot of pattern I am using a chocolate and white damask on a simple skirted chair. I need art work etc, but it's evolving.... I'll keep you posted on the progress. oh and the ceiling is covered in a shagreen wall covering...

I'm always adding to this....

{I apologize for the flash, my office is on the North side of the house}

Your inspiration board is...inspirational!
Love the deep green kravet velvet. I love their velvets. They are so soft and not too expensive.
That graphic green and white fabric is beautiful as well. Is it one of those Quadrille lovelies?
Thank you for sharing.

Thank you Brooke. The green velvet from Kravet is the prettiest color and I agree their velvets are well priced. Yes, the green and white fabric is rep'd by Quadrille, it's the Alan Campbell line. I love their fabrics!!!

I love the mix of traditional and modern in her office. I've not seen the rest of her home, so please do post! You have some great ideas for your office. That chair was sure a lucky find! Can't wait to see how it all comes together!

I love Jennifer Delonge's office, I'll post the rest of her place this week.

I have almost all of the same images from your inspiration board saved to my computer! I am so in love with that dining room by Peter Dunham.
