Let's Design Together

Today, we are deciding on our very first piece to the office so I hope my most stylish readers are viewing this post!!
My art career is growing and changing and my small team and I will need a new space to work. We will be designing a new office space one piece at a time (literally) and tracking it here for you so that you can all give your design input. It will also be a great way for anyone reading to decorate your own home space right along with us.
 We are beginning with only a desk and chair and leaving the first addition up to Wendy , from Layla Grayce.

  Which piece did you think should be added to the space first and why?
"A folding screen. First thought upon seeing the office space was there is a beautiful desk but a very lonely wall standing behind it. The screen, if placed slightly off center to the left, can mask the light switch. To balance the screen off to the right we envision either a single large or grouping of Dallas’ talent, her framed artwork or perhaps a dress form with one of her favorite designs or fashion pieces she’s collected. A quick way to ground the desk and add dimension, was to incorporate a decorative element like the screen. We also like the versatility that it provides as it can be moved to another wall or corner space if she wants to later shift things around."


 What are the functions this piece can serve in the office? 
Mainly decorative and space-defining.

Looks like a screen it is! Do you have a favorite of the screens above? I LOVE the gold screen (it's by arteriors). Please leave your thoughts below- and we'll share which screen we pick up from Layla Grayce shortly!!

I'm a big fan of the Gold. I love how it makes an architectural statement in such a modern and glam way!

I have to agree with your readers. The gold one is outstanding, and just a great conversation piece. It'll still allow light to shine through, but has enough coverage to separate parts of a room.

Yes, the gold one is so, so pretty and room defining. It looks a bit more special. I think these posts for your office are a great idea. I bet everyone loves to see the whole thing come together.

I absolutely love the gold, but it all depends on how much privacy you need. Such a hard decision!

I am in L-O-V-E with the gold. I also think it would be amazing to tie in one or two gold elements throughout the room...thinking gold vase or pyrite paper weight...J

Dallas Shaw said...
