Design an Office in One Day!

Earlier this week we hit the ground running to do a one day office transformation! How do you design an office in one day? Here’s how we did it.

Spatial Arrangement, Shopping and setup were on the menu for this home office that sets directly off the main entrance of the home.

Home Office Before Transformation- Home Office Transformation

Spatial Arrangement in this room is going to have the largest impact on this one day office transformation.

10:00AM– Plans Discussed

10:30AM Lets start moving these pieces! (Well, I will assist and guide, but I need to hit the gym because my client is stronger than me and ends up pulling my weight! Sorry!!!)

11:00AM– Progress Photos and we are out the door to Marshalls, Kirklands and Garden Ridge to complete the design by purchasing our all important accessories!!!

I think these adorable pups think this was a photo shoot!  I love how comfortable they feel in their home 🙂

11:30-12:15 We hit the jackpot!  Marshalls had the rug, bench, baskets and floor plants that we needed!!!  It was actually harder to load all of our great finds into the SUV than it was to find them!  No worries though, when there is a will there is a way!

12:15-12:30– Looking for the perfect floor vases for our room at Kirklands….. unfortunately no luck this time at Kirklands, but I spotted a bunch of items that I can not live without so we will come again!

12:30 -1:15 Garden Ridge for the tall floor vases and the florals to go inside plus a few additional accessories.

1:15 -2:00 Lay down the new rug, and position the new accessories.

Later that evening:

One last step we needed man power for…moving their existing bookshelf into its new position.

Drum roll please.!.!.!.!.!.!.!
