Hi there! Have I ever told you that I love what I do? I do! I am currently working on several different projects ranging from new house planning to complete house makeovers and a few things in between. My clients are a dream to work with and I truly feel blessed! I thought you might enjoy seeing a little peek at a work in progress picture of a home office makeover.
In order for you to fully appreciate where we are coming from, here is the before picture. This room was an unused sitting room and my client wanted to move her office into this room. Her office was previously upstairs in the bonus room which is the soon-to-be playroom. You will see more on that another time. This room is located to the left as you enter the front door and to the right is the formal dining room.
Here is the plan I created for the room. This process often takes time and so each time I would visit my client a little more progress had been made. For several weeks that big sofa in the before picture was sitting in the foyer, books everywhere. You know how that goes. Before improvement comes chaos - or something like that.
Friday when I stopped by, the office was really taking shape! The secretary, used as a mailing station, was previously located in the foyer. Even though the foyer is rather large, the secretary felt heavy there. So I recommended moving it into the office. I really like the mix in this room...modern cottage meets chinoiserie chic. The room is still work in progress. It needs a rug, and a few odds and ends, but I love how this is coming together. It doesn't look like the same room!
So what are you up to today? I will be spending my day behind a sewing machine making place mats and table runners. Suddenly my store is hopping! As they say, when it rains it pours!
