Fabulous Room Friday 07.30.10

turq encino4

I’ve been brainstorming all types of ideas for an upcoming project and have been spending even more time in my office than usual. Naturally, this draws me to inspiring work spaces even more. I love this office by Los Angeles interior decorator, Vanessa de Vargas of Turquoise. The room is filled with various patterns, yet it maintains a very streamlined feeling through the use of furniture with clean, straight lines. The chevron stripe rug is easily the boldest element in the room, but it’s geometric nature and black and white palette keep it from taking over the room.

By the way, isn’t this console fantastic? I love the knobs and I’m sure it makes a great storage piece. If I had the room in my office, I would definitely think about finding a vintage console, buffet, or credenza in it.}

Yes! I totally agree...I too posted this home office as an inspiration. I haven't begun working on my office..other than getting things together...I'm going with a different color scheme..but I found this home office's streamlined look appealing and will try my very best to mimic. I can't wait to see what you end up doing in your home office.
