Subtly Feminine Home Office

Thank you for your feedback on my post about accessorizing dilemma's.  Your comments have inspired new posts addressing the most common challenges we face when it comes to accessorizing. {If you missed it, please feel free to leave your accessorizing dilemma in the comments of the post}.  My original plan was to publish these posts next week however, it may be a little longer (just a tad).  Because...I've decided to take it a step further.  Not only am I going to address the most common problems, but I'm going to solve them!  Stay tuned :)

In the meantime, 

Today's featured online design plan was created for wonderful lady, Lynn, who works from home in the fashion industry.  She came to me looking for a home office design plan for her gorgeous traditional style home.  The space had to be as functional as it was pretty.  She wanted to add a touch of femininity, but not so much that it scared off her husband.  

One of the questions in the questionnaire I send to my clients prior to creating their design plan is, "What is your favorite magazine?".  In this case, her answer was Southern Living and House Beautiful.  My goal was to give her a space that looks like it belongs one of these magazines, yet practical, livable and functional. 

These beautiful bookcases were the perfect solution.  Not only are they pretty for display purposes but they also provide storage for her fashion resource books and office accessories.  

Every girls office needs a chandelier.  This one was perfect.  The scale was spot on and the beautiful glass drops provide a little girly-bling without going over the top.  The aged bronze finish tones it down a bit.  

This rug was meant for Lynn.  The color palette is gorgeous, the style says "Southern Living/House Beautiful", and the contemporary floral motif keeps it feeling current and not too girly.  

Thank you, Lynn for inviting me into your home.

  1. This is really nice I especially like the bookcase as I'm working on my home office too. The bookcase I have is smaller but will go well because the wall where it will be placed isn't a big wall!
    Thanks you for sharing!

  2. I love the bookcase!! Not the norm to have as many books laying flat with multiple stacks in a cube. I love that it gives the books a softer look having the edged showing instead of all of the spines. Great mix of other storage items to maximize the space.

  3. I love this design board... I'm in the process of reorganizing my studio/office space to give it a more professional feel. We have a Ballards outlet store right down the road. I love their book shelves and small funiture pieces. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Beautiful! Love the chandelier and can't wait to see the dress forms in place.

  6. Where did you find the chandelier?! It is perfect!

  7. Love the rug. You are so talented and thoughtful in your work.
