I wanted to give you guys another sneak peak into my day-to-day design world at work. If you missed the first few professional design features you can catch up here and here! You can also visit my collaboration with a house flipper, Rocks Rehabs, here and here! My first few professional design work features showed my wheel house, designing model homes for builders to show off their homes. In addition to models, I also help to sign commercial spaces. They can range from leasing centers, amenity spaces in apartment complexes, and also office and conference spaces. For this Design Feature I want to show you guys on of my favorite conference and business centers I designed with my old firm Carlyn and Company Interiors + Design.Here is the entrance into the Business and Conference Center. Use used a base of tans, browns and grey to create a warm feeling. In my experience, office spaces and feel “cold”. We used pops of reds, oranges and golds to help warm up the space. This large conference room can comfortably seat 10 people and is equipped with touch screen smart TV, WiFi and a smart table including power to charge your devices.
We tried to lighten up the space by using fun artwork from across the globe. One of my favorite sources is Saatchi Art, a website that allows artists sell original artwork online to be shipped anywhere in the world.
This is an area where the general public can come in to use the computers, printers and phones fee. We are calling it the Business Center. This area had to be tough as nails as it will take some abuse over the years. We used custom built ins to create computer cubbies. This area had no windows, so to create the illusion of some natural light we added there mirrors behind each computer. This last space is a smaller board room for more private meetings. Again we used oversized artwork to help fill the large walls and add some much needed color to the space. We used simple pendant lighting and wall sconces to help brighten the room. I totally love how the chevron red and orange fabric turned out on these modern office chairs!
I hope you enjoyed a sneak peak into my day-to-day design life. I love that I am always getting to design something different and new. I hope you liked it!
Until Next Time,
