Hi!

Welcome to my blog where I document projects involving home renovation, staging and design.

An Office Design where Kids are the Clients

An Office Design where Kids are the Clients

When we think of the design of a clinical office space, one may imagine a sterile environment where chairs line a waiting room wall, left over art is haphazardly placed and old magazines are piled on a coffee table that has definitely seen better days. Now, what if I were to tell you that the main clients of this space were kids? That may evoke a rainbow of colors and a plethora of toys?

When I was hired to redesign the office of a Brooklyn reading specialist, we wanted to be sure that neither sterile nor cute nor cluttered were words that ever came to mind. Instead, we were pushing for comfortable, livable and fun, while also being organized, a bit sophisticated and Brooklyn-esque!

The reading specialist needed a place where adult family members felt relaxed while waiting for the kids and kids felt relaxed while working. It was also important to be strategic about where prints and patterns would live and décor would be placed, because although a lively atmosphere is key, what's more essential is eliminating chaos and distraction in the work space. (Did I ever mention that I was a learning specialist before I switched careers? This background has been especially useful in designing the office since I'm very much aware of what kids and parents prefer and expect, and what can quickly lead to distractibility).

The rooms in their current state already have some of the necessary elements, they just need a refresh...

We will be keeping the sofa, tables and chairs, but everything else will be added or upgraded. With this is mind, I came up with the following mood boards...

In the end, the space will be a combination of both of these boards. We have already found and purchased most of the furniture and décor and when I say its going to look Awesome, I mean it's really going to be Awesome!! This has been such a fun space to put together and I CANNOT wait for you all to see the final result! Stay tuned friends...
