We started with a blank slate. An empty room, and a pinterest page. After a consultation with Stephanie Olvey, we figured out her style and the function of this office space... and then made it pretty. :) Steph was great to work with. She didn't know exactly what she wanted or how to verbalize or visualize it, and my job was to turn this space into what I imagined her dream office would be, all under $2000.
I presented Steph with 4 different layout options, all with different working space utility... Then I asked her lots of questions. :) It turned out she was organized and needed storage, but wanted a clean table space where she could also sprawl out. This room is doubling as a TV room for her boyfriend as well. So we went with the faux built-in layout with the big desk in front. I gave her a mood board of how I thought the room would turn out and then we got started with the purchases (starting with the IKEA bookshelves of course!)
The accent wall started out as a mustard-y yellow color at first, and after a color consultation with me, Steph went with the pale lime green.
With all that display shelf space, we needed some goodies to showcase! So we hit up my FAVORITE place, Goodwill! (We got everything on her bookcases for under $200!!)
We also went on a trip to a consignment shop in Georgetown. Some more great deals!
I went on another thrift store trip on my own to pick out some beautiful wall art for Steph. She loves seagulls... JUST kidding ;) But the frames worked wonders for her gallery wall! (See the process of painting the gallery wall below as well)
