It is time for another great reveal! Lucky Pearl Interiors recently worked with a long time client to renovate a room in their home to serve as their new business headquarters. This former FORMAL living room often turned into a mini storage area, was pretty dark and was rarely used as it was originally intended. When my client contacted me and expressed an interest in turning it into his home office, I was thrilled!
The large room ( 19 x 11 ) lacked sufficient light, had not been painted in over ten years and really needed a refresh in order to make it a place where my client could work and meet with business partners and new clients. In addition to a new paint job, updated window treatments and plenty of lamps, the room needed new furniture pieces that would be practical and affordable.
This project’s design plan started with function in mind. There were some basic requirements that needed to be met, specifically the need for an office work station for four computers as well as a large conference table for meetings and presentations. In addition, we had a very strict budget so we used IKEA as our go-to for this renovation.
The desks are a combination of IKEA LINNMON tabletops in different sizes, the drawer units are IKEA ALEX pieces in gray and the conference table is actually IKEA’s OPPEBY dining table that seats up to 8. The desk chairs are super comfortable and were from Wayfair.
In this room, the bay window is the main source of natural light, so we designed that space as a great nook for quiet conversation and relaxation. We added two Ledet Swivel chairs in a rich distressed brown color, threw in these beautiful pillows from Target, and a small side table for the lamp. It now functions as a separate place to read a book, speak with a client privately or to enjoy the view out of the window.
For even more function we added the IKEA KALLAX bookcase that doubles as the printer stand and has plenty of storage. The IKEA ERIK tall file cabinets hold both letter size and legal size files and are in a sleek black color to match with the rest of the design.
To say that we were thrilled with the results is an understatement! As always, we are grateful that our clients trust us to bring their vision to life!
Until our next project!
