California Cool Office for a Boss-Lady

Working from home can be hard and sometimes uninspiring, so we knew this boss-lady needed prime real estate that she actually wanted to be in.

Located between the foyer and the living room, the previous homeowners used the space as a formal lounge, but when its incredible natural light and view of the bus stop, it was the perfect place for the new office.

By adding two custom designed barn doors, the office can easily be closed off when needed but act as artwork when open. New lighting centered over a dining table-turned-desk gives her plenty of working space, and a floating credenza gives her plenty of storage. We brought in some fun textures and colors with the new rug and re-envisioned side chairs (shout out to my mom for reupholstering those caned beauties).

So what do you do to stay motivated and enjoy your work space? I love to turn on a good podcast and have a clean desk. Is there something that makes you feel less productive and distracted? Clutter? Uncomfortable chairs? Depressing weather? Squirrels?
