Commercial Office Space

I thought it would be fun to let you guys follow along on this commercial office space project so I am sharing a few of the idea boards with you.

My client request only a few decor items for the entry space.  I am proposing a large logo sign above the secretary desk, a tufted settee, a small rustic bench for the coffee table, gold floor lamp, as well as some modern art.  The existing pieces are traditional pieces, but my vision is for the office to be an eclectic space.  Especially since it is a mortgage company.  I want clients to walk in and envision having some of the pieces in their own home.

Ok, moving on to the conference room:

In the conference area I am proposing a long console table on one wall, with a book collage above, 2 lamps, and a few art pieces on the opposite wall.  In each space I style, I always like to put something different in each space and in here I believe the book collage would be great and a conversation piece as well!  Here is a shot of a book collage in my own home:

Last, I’ll share the office space idea board:

Like I said earlier, the existing desks and credenzas are traditional, so I want to update in a way each space flows, but each office is its own.  I love these wing back chairs, traditional yet modern.

Thank you for following along with one of my projects!  Enjoy your day, and the rest of the week!

 

Thanksgiving Tablescape “on a budget”


Hi beautiful friends!  I am so excited to share with you my Thanksgiving tablescape, AND its budget friendly!  I’ve teamed up with some of my favorite bloggers and they too have shared their tablescapes as well.  I’ve listed a direct link to each at the bottom of this post.

My inspiration for this look was from my woodland spode china.  I wanted to bring the outside in by using different textures.

Y’all, I didn’t buy a thing for this setting.  I used some faux fall pumpkins and pulled decor from other spaces to style our table.  Let’s talk about the wine glasses.  Guys, these are acrylic, and from Walmart!  I love using beautiful stemware for water or sweet tea.  I don’t think you have to just use these for wine.

I mentioned this Tablescape is budget friendly.  I used pine cones and pine needles from our yard to add some greenery for FREE!  I pulled out our vintage milk glass vases to layer.  Hit up your local yard sales or thrift stores to find these gems.  I got a box full for less than $2!  The antlers were my father’s he has tons in his old shed.

Let’s talk about napkins!  Well, I seemed to have mis placed mine so y’all I used bounty paper towels, I know, stay with me here.  For me, I don’t want to have to do anymore laundry than I have to…and would you have even noticed if I wouldn’t have told you?!?

I also wanted “fine china” I could use, not something that has to be hand washed.  I love our woodland spode because it’s dishwasher friendly!  Can I get an amen?!?

House to HOME

I know, it has been a minute from my last blog post.  I am so so sorry, I know you all have missed me!!  Recently, my husband and I bought a house.  We are so excited to make this house a home.  Slowly, we are transforming it into our very own farmhouse that we can love for life.  I will be sharing this journey here on my blog.  So,  first I am sharing the progress in our dining area.

My goal as a designer is to be very budget friendly for my clients.  I apply this to my own home as well.  That is why I am known as the budget designer of the south!!  Now, let me share with you a few of my secrets!!  Do you love the metal/wood shelves??  They are from WALMART!!  I bought two to achieve the look of a buffet.  The shabby chic chair covers are from Target!  I also mixed in a few thrifty finds.  I hope this is motivating you to transform your house into a home!!  Tag Interior Swag in your posts, and we will share our favorites!!
