Home Office Design

“Turning a small space into a work place”

This office space was an additional room in a Townhome that was too small to be a bedroom and an unneeded storage space. So my client decided to make this her new work space. Since we are in a Pandemic working from home has become the norm for most people and those who did not have a destined office space before have had to create one. I have seen people using their closets, kitchens, and backyard patios as their new found office space. Well guess what? You can take a small space in your home and turn it into a workable environment. That is exactly what I did with the space. We all know that work can be stressful so it is important that our office space is a place that is peaceful and sparks creativity instead of distractions.


The design scheme for this space is Modern - Bohemian. I wanted to space to represent nature since my client loves to travel and I wanted a color palate that would complement the sea green walls. The client for this office is a therapist who works on live zoom calls daily, so I knew I wanted to create an accent wall as her backdrop. I created a contrast in the color palate by using black as my accent color. My client loves light colors & wanted some femininity in the design so the next color for the palate was blush. I fell in love with this beautiful, colorful leaf wallpaper from Houzz and I continued to build the design around this.


I specialize in design on a budget and thrift shopping is a great way to find furniture that can be transformed into new pieces for your room. I was able to find the bookcase for $10 at Goodwill. This bookcase was originally brown and we painted it blush & white and kept the black accent in the doors. The wall desk from Houzz was the best solution to provide as much manageable movement in this small space. The white and gold chair is the perfect style to make the office feel modern. And what’s a standout office without eye-catching artwork? The gold & green leaf wall art was purchased from Home Goods. The adjacent artwork of the African American women was purchased online by a black artist. All the frames were purchased from Goodwill and painted black to pop against the sea green wall. The last clever way to make a room pop is to add an accent rug. I chose this small black & white rug to complement the desk area and black accents throughout the space. The black light fixture from Home Depot illuminates the room and stands out against the floral wallpaper. Last but not least, Marshalls & Home Goods were the source for all the decorative items to complete this design.
