The 360 Office Turnaround


Sometimes you just need to start over. K's office before was all sage green and burgundy with craftsman furniture and a big chunky executive desk. When she called us, she was ready with some furnishing ideas but her matched Homepolish designer Heidi suggested she wipe the slate clean. The Presidio space had great bones for Heidi to work with - hello, floor to ceiling windows, open lawn and cement columns - and the two had a great time figuring out what went perfectly with their shared vision.
Wanting a mix of ethnic glam, mid-century accents and bright color, K's ultimate dream was a fun but professional space that she would be excited to return to every morning. Heidi was thrilled with her client's patient attitude and together they spent time making sure that every detail was perfect. Neutral tones keep pops of fuchsia from being overbearing and amazing light fixtures are eye-catching decorative elements dotted around the room. Heidi's tips for a balanced and beautiful space? "Stick with upholstery in neutral tones. They're pieces that can stay the course in a space, even if tastes change over the years." Letting the pink filing cabinet, purple chair and violet rug take the stage allow quiet pieces to do their work in the background. Wait, how weird is it that we want to live in K's office?

K and her designer Heidi were both on the same page from the start -wanting a space that didn't feel like an office, cozy and somewhat feminine, neutral with pops of color and a mix of mid-century/ethnic/boho/glam.

K needed whiteboard space so the entire back wall is Ideapaint and she pins inspiration images onto the linen pin board.

Of K, Heidi says, "She was a dream client because she was totally willing to stay the course and wait for the right thing to come."

The vintage textile pillows were a major design focal point and were some of the first things Heidi and K purchased.

Heidi used the vintage pillows as the overall color palette and focused on bringing in color in doses that felt right, not overwhelming. The work space is the brightest with the pink chair, purple rug and pink filing cabinet but, because everything else is pretty quiet, it works.
