I am currently working on an exciting project to design a home garden office for a lovely client, who regularly works from home. The solution is a fabulously large, hi-spec garden building, currently under construction. So with little time to lose I set about pulling together a practical but stylish office space which met my client’s brief: a large desk for my client and occasional workspace for colleagues, together with space for meetings and plenty of storage.
My starting point was a favourite sofa of the client’s which provides a place for informal chats and meetings. The neutral sofa is updated with Saltire cushions and a geometric pattern rug, (both John Lewis) which contrast nicely. For workspace, a vintage desk provides a place to work and adds character, along with a large vintage table that provides a communal work space, that can also be used for meetings. A wall of dark shelving will create a feature and provides plenty of storage. The build of the office is currently underway and we should be able to put together the interior by the end of this month. I already have my eyes on the perfect desk and I’m now on the hunt for a vintage table, to be paired with Eames style chairs. The aim is the space will strike the perfect balance between formal workspace and a relaxed place for colleagues to come together. I’m pleased to say my client was delighted with the design of the room, watch this place for the final results…..
A note from Carolyn…
So very excited this week as my new interiors website is launched, thanks to all my friends and family who have been so supportive and put up with my incessant talk of my plans for my new venture and launch of the website. Thanks to Carrie Byrne for designing the website and for her patience and advice, I hope you agree the result looks great.
