Thoughts on office

I've been making some real progress with my new home. I've laid out most of the furniture. It's a smaller space so I've had to really get creative with my ideas and furniture plans but it's coming together! I'm really happy with the paint colors and a number of you have asked about the grey color I used on the living room walls. 

I used Ace Hardware's paint+primer in one brand Clark+Kensington  throughout the house. I'm their design expert and love the product. 

The color on the walls is custom but it's a very close match to: Colonial Shades: 5066, by Clark+Kensington.

I've also hired a new assistant named Meg. So far she's been great. Next week my plan is to set up our design offices together. They are going to be in a room in my new home that I'm eventually going to rehab. This initial set up will be temporary.

Some day I'd like to have a small office and retail space combined but that most likely won't happen until my kids are out of childcare! ;)

I love Melissa Davis of Ruby Press PR firms' fresh approach seen in the images here. My office too will have clean white walls, pops of color and layers of textural interest. Images via Lonny.

This pink chesterfield sofa and zebra bench are phenomenal!!

Timely post for me. I'm a full time telecommuter and have struggled with my office in our new home. My goal is bright, elegant and feminine but somewhere along the line it has tipped over into "girly" (as exclaimed by a visitor this weekend). It doesn't help that I haven't had a chance to paint the pale pink walls. I've chosen a pale, neutral grey for the top half of the walls and the bottom, wainscoted portion will be white. I look forward to seeing pictures of your office.

I've been wondering about that paint each time I go to Ace. You picked a beautiful color. I'll have to give it a try!

Once again, I LOVE your office storage configurations in the room! I certainly wish I had enough storage for all my books. Excellent work as always! Keep it up!
