Before we get started on today’s post we have a job posting for a WordPress designer/developer, see the full job description here.
There is definitely some joy that comes with a well-designed workspace – even when it’s located inside your home. Here’s a look at my new studio office makeover.
The dresser behind me was bought refurbished on Marketplace. I like that the hardware feels like jewelry.
Design details from my studio office makeover
The difference between my new office and the studio in my last home is now my offices are inside the house, just above the attic. And it’s nice actually. No more running back and forth in the cold and rain.
SW Neutral Ground–one of 6 green beige complex creams in my SW Foundation Collection of 50 curated by undertone
My favourite decor item in this room are my green velvet drapes. They are such a fabulous colour and they truly make the space feel cozy! This is a south facing window so the light here is wonderful, the second office where my assistant sits definitely needs lights during the day.
Here’s the before (Taupe walls with green beige carpets)
Large Painted Colour Board Storage
Now, take a look at the after below.
My entire collection of large paint samples are displayed here as well, makes it easy for me to pull them when necessary. Each colour board is painted on high quality poster board making it easy to move around to make sure the colour works with all your soft and hard finishes plus two coats of real paint and 100% colour accuracy.
Each paint sample also has the undertone printed directly on the front making them quick and easy to find.
Your clients need choice and you need to give them the ability to eliminate the paint colours that are not working. A curated collection helps you do just that.
When you can quickly narrow down the hundreds of available paint colours to 2 or 3 in the correct undertone (or the right colour) choosing paint colours becomes a lot faster and easier.
Each collection of large samples comes with a free neutral colour wheel.
If you’re a designer, having these displayed your office where you can pull them when you’re assembling colour palettes is a total game changer!
There’s my studio on the left side of the house on the second floor (below):
My freshly painted house sure is fabulous! See that post here.
