My First Home Office Tour

This room has seen quite the transformation..When we first moved into our 90’s cookie-cutter home, we staged this space as the builders had intended it..a “formal” living room. The longer we lived in our home, the more we realized we had no use for another seating area. It’s not a huge home and we already have a family room, a loft, and we’ll eventually finish our basement with a large comfy sectional.

Enter…my new home office! The “After” photo above shows my office in its entirety (it’s pretty small) from our entryway. I designed this space with a modular office collection from Arhaus to maximize storage and make it as multi-purpose as possible. I now have somewhere to work and to relax with a book!

TREMONT MODULAR BOOKSHELF FROM ARHAUS.

To create a cohesive, neutral color story, I removed the dust covers on all of my books and flipped the binding of those that were ‘off’ towards the back of the shelf. It drives my husband crazy that you can’t read all of the titles, but he’s not really the reader in the house, so I still went with it!

I’ve collected vases, planters, decorative boxes and other objects in various shades of ivory, gold, and grey to provide variety.

Pillows are a necessity in almost every room! They are the simplest way to soften a space and it’s also really easy to swap them out when you’re ready for a change of pace.

I try to add a variation of fresh and faux plants and flowers throughout my home. My thumb just started to turn bit green and I’ve had better luck keeping my real plants alive recently.

I still consider this room to be somewhat of a work-in-progress; I’d love to lighten the wall color and update our occasional chairs. While I do love these chairs, so has my dog! A high performance fabric may be in our future!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this preview of my home office and I can’t wait to hear what you think!

‘Til next time,

The Oakland Project: Home Office

At long last…all the good stuff from our Oakland project home office!! This space is near and dear, for sure. A home office that is beautiful, thoughtfully planned, inviting and functional?? Um, yes, please!! It’s a perfect balance between classic design (that desk!), a few edgy details (um, that rug!) and a touch of feminine glam (those lamps!).  Scroll through to take a peak into this coveted office.

Designing a space that a client adores always the goal and the end result of this design did just that! Knowing that this space would mainly be for mom, we were able to incorporate all the elements that she loved. Playing with texture and pattern was a must! The quatrefoil desk chair layered with an edgy hair on hide rug is an unexpected surprise with the classic architecture of the Athens desk and cabinetry.

We added two additional seating options. The Giles swivel chair has a collage of faux leather and a shimmer tweed. The classic club chair upholstered in an inviting tweed offers a nice contrast.

Hello!

Welcome to Tweed & Co! Our goal is to create a space where we can share the beautiful spaces we have designed, the process we go through, and where we pull inspiration from! 

Audrie and I found that we have a similar passion for interior design while working in a high-end furniture showroom…can you guess which one?! We’ve been dreaming up this blog for years and are finally going for it!

We hope that you can come here to find inspiration for your own designs (and learn from our mistakes)!
