Office Update – Shelter

Hello, hello!! We have been working away on a number of projects at Shelter but today I squeezed in some time to put together our new office boards. Don’t cringe at the before photos of the area – (images below). This is what we are working with for space. I can’t rip out the floor tile but I will be covering as much as I can with a rug. We are painting the walls a very pale grey and recovering the windows in simple woven shades. I may even custom order a large seagrass rug to lay under the black and white rug. I want to cover as much of the tile as possible!!

I wanted to create a clean, fresh office. I will be setting up a large inspiration board to tack fabrics and design ideas to. (I love Kelly Wearstler’s over sized board – image below). I also own a number of the items that we will be using. (I’m sort of a chair addict so I have collected a number of random chairs). I have linked to the rest of the items. This space will also be created on a budget. Meg (my fabulous design assistant), myself and Matty hope to finish it up by the beginning of May!!
I will be sure to share the after photos with you!

  1. I think it is going to be an amazing transformation once complete based on your mood boards. Once that Ikea rug goes down it will be a total distraction from any of that yuck tile floor still peeking through. How exciting !
