Claybourne Project: Office

Our success as a design firm has come with one little princess problem - people see work that we've done and want that exact thing in their own home. As designers, we like to create and try new combinations, but sometimes people aren't willing to take the risk. Decorating is a big commitment both emotionally and financially, so I get it. If someone is adamant about using something they've already seen, we still push ourselves to do it in a fresh way. HOWEVER, when a client is willing to be a bit bold the result is usually a space that quickly becomes one of our most loved projects. 

This room is a perfect example of that. Our client wanted her husband's office to feel masculine and was considering blue walls. I had been dying to do green-black walls somewhere, but the right project had not presented itself and I just knew this was the one. It took some convincing, but I'm so glad our client went for it. The floor-to-ceiling moulding in that rich color is dramatic and just plain awesome. The wood desk breaks up the painted surfaces and the vintage rug is the perfect complement to it all. As I mentioned in the video and living room posts, Fox Group Construction designed the home and Christopher Scott did the cabinetry. 

A note on the paint color, it's definitely one you need to test first because it changes with the light!
