The office where I work part-time is below ground, painted a few lovely shades of tan, and filled with heavy old wood furniture. Sounds attractive, right? It's basically a sea of beige, and it appears that it hasn't been touched since the 80s. The nice thing is they want to redo it, on a budget of course, but ever so slowly they're ready to revamp. And I'm starting to put some ideas together.
This room, Monique Lhullier's living room, is inspiring me. It's an office, so we can't go too crazy with color, so I'm thinking pewters and creams, grounded with a bit of black, and accented with blues or purples or greens should get me to my goal of bringing some of-the-moment style and sophistication to the space. Now let's see if a. the powers that be like it and b. I can accomplish what I'm after on very little dough. Stay tuned.
