Before... mmmm Barcelona ChairsBefore
We painted the center dividing wall a slate/blue gray to emphasize the architecture. The blue carpet was a little limiting on our wall color. Ikea cabinetry is a good alternative for those on a tight budget. Oh-say hi to our office fish, Gil. I feel guilty about keeping him in such a small vase. :(
Over the summer my boss relocated her firm to an amazing new space. The building is super snazzy. The architecture is angular and clean and the structure is comprised of an all white stucco exterior with tons of south facing windows and skylights. I love going to work even more now because I feel like I'm in one of Richard Meier's buildings or even Le Corbusier's Villa Savoye... (well, almost.)
The portion we are renting needed a little work at the beginning. The now retired architect who owns the building had been using the space as his painting studio. Being the 'free spirits' that artists generally are, there was an abundance of old building plans, modeling supplies and miscellaneous handy man tools that had been literally stuffed into file cabinets.
Although we were able to successfully paint over the oils splatters and patch the hundreds of nail holes in the walls, the scent of turpentine still lingers in the air. I love it. <3
