One of my first projects is to design a home office, that will also be an AphroChic showspace for potential retailers who want to view our goods. I work from home and really need a space that's cozy, efficient, and that shows AphroChic style in action. I'm also looking to hire an assistant later this year, so I also need a space that will fit more than one person. Here is what the office looks like now. It's a blank slate just looking for some imagination and creativity to liven it up.
1. AphroChic The Vibe Wallpaper; 2. Louis Ghost Armchair; 3. Iomoi Pens; 4. IKEA Ledet Table Lamp; 5. Vintage Scissors; 6. Tse Tse Bowl; 7. Anthropologie Quixotic Reverie Rug; 8. Ikea Vika Amon Table
I've come up with a few ideas for the space. I love to start the design process by making a moodboard. It helps to get my thoughts in order, and I'm a very visual person. I definitely want it to feel glam and a little bit girly. I'm a girly-girl after all.
I'm also feeling a little adventurous, and may incorporate a fun DIY project and create a custom desk.
I've been pulling together some inspirational spaces on Pinterest to help flesh out this idea. Now that I'm sharing the ideas with all of you, I'm so excited to see how it all comes together. I'm off to start on my project!
