So presentation time came for my CEO office project this week.
 Remember how I shared a few of my inspiration pics here?
I focused on the feel of a few of the images and, once we had a consultation to discuss his needs & desires, used that as a starting point to create a design & space plan that works for him.
His needs?
-2 desks or a desk + console table so his computer is not in his direct line of sight.
-new flooring
-new window treatments
-meeting space
-new executive chair
-do something with the built-in bookshelves…he didn’t want all of that storage
Based upon the Duralee faux bois fabric he loved…

I pulled this fabric scheme together…

and came up with this layout. 

The colors aren’t exactly true to real life–the cabinetry will be lacquered in Navy, floors will be vinyl plank, & walls are a Thibaut grasscloth–but it gave him an idea of what I’m envisioning for his redesign. In the end, we’ve decided to go with a meeting table for 5 instead of the sofa & seating area (more functional for how he’ll be using his space), but the rendering was a huge help in getting him to see what I’ve got up my sleeve. I am super excited to see this project unfold…it’s gonna be a major transformation from his current space!
 Round 2 is next week–stay tuned.

    I know things will work out beautifully and that space will be fit for your client. I cannot wait to see it all come together.
    I bet you can’t either~

    Looking good lady. Tough designing for the gents no? Just what I’m dishing about today. Can’t wait to see the progress.

    This has got to be the project I’ve been hearing about and I can’t wait to see it come together in person!
