I passed by this door in the West Village a few weeks ago, and I love the unexpected mix of colors and textures. While the brick and concrete make for a drab and muddied backdrop, the blue door really pops and brings the composition to life. For today's blog post, I'm going to create an office inspired by this image.
I pulled this color palette from the image - a mix of cream and black from the natural brick above the door, a bright pop of blue, and muddy brown and red from the painted brick.
I love the industrial vibe of the inspiration image, and the colors seem straight out of the 70's, so I've decided to create a Vintage Modern Office look. I'm picturing a really cool industrial loft space with an exposed brick wall and concrete floors. Take a look at some of my selections below:
1. Schoolhouse Electric - Equestrian Loveseat (Columbian Brown)
With a tufted back and distressed leather upholstery, this sofa sets the tone of the space. It's comfortable, yet professional - a great place for your guests to wait before the big meeting.
2. Restoration Hardware - Atelier Task Table Clamp Lamp Bronze
This adjustable task lamp clamps to the side of your desk. Besides giving your office a cool, industrial vibe, it also frees up desk space so you can maximize your work surface.
3. Anthropologie - Codify Pencil Holder
While the past few decades were all about chrome, brass and gold are seeing a major resurgence in popularity lately - and gold desk accessories are all the rage right now. This gorgeous pencil holder has a nice weight to it, and lots of places to store your desktop clutter.
4. CB2 - Go-Cart Aqua Desk
And now for that pop of blue! I love this CB2 desk because of it's clean lines and nice big work surface. It's super modern, fun, and functional. Plus it's on wheels so you can easily reposition it as needed.
5. Urban Outfitters - Magical Thinking Geo Rug
With neutral tones and a simple geometric pattern, this rug is a good background piece. It's not meant to be the focal point of the space, but it adds some nice color and texture to pull the room together. It makes a statement, but it doesn't stand out.
6. West Elm - Stackable Chair
This mid-century modern inspired chair is charming, simple and affordable. It features a stained walnut veneer and classic silhouette. The best part is that it's stackable. so you can save space if you need a bunch.
