I’ve had my business for about a month now and I’ve been making a little progress. I moved furniture into Post & Gray a few weeks ago and just put a few things at Interiors Marketplace yesterday (see below).
French buffet, boudoir mirror, iron lamps, tufted ottoman, french country desk, wing chair, bamboo bookshelf, cane bench, botanical prints, garden stool, iron chandelier
I’m just waiting for my France shipment to arrive so I can fill my space a little better. Definitely in need of some accessories!
In the meantime I am decorating my office and reception area at my warehouse. I decided to do something outside of my usual style, which is the Belgian linens, Swedish furniture, and neutral colors seen below.
In France the industrial look was all over the place, and I really loved it. Since my space is a warehouse with large windows and exposed brick, I decided to go with this style.
I really wanted to do a neutral look, but with a “pop” of color. My associate, Will, and I were brainstorming colors.
I really liked this neutral linen with a pop of green.
However, we decided I needed something bolder. We instantly thought of Hermes Orange. I’m not usually a bright person– no reds, yellows, and usually not oranges! However, we thought it might be interesting.
I had seen these great orange leather stools by Suzanne Kastler for Hickory Chair, so I ordered 2 for the reception area. I also ordered 3 Hickory chair barrel back occosional chairs in the same color as the walls. Thomas O’Brien designed this tufted chair for Hickory Chair that I am using it as my desk chair.
I bought these industrial bookcases in Atlanta and thought they would be perfect for my office. I purchased Pina Zingara linen binders in a charcoal color– very similar to the walls. I also went crazy with orange accessories from Kates Paperie. I even put a few Hermes boxes on the shelves (Thanks for giving them up mom!)
I bought 50 of these linen binders to organize my design inspirations. I will have one binder for each category– accessories, art, bamboo, bathrooms, bookshelves, color, fabrics, kitchens, mirrors, etc!
I am using vintage industrial gears as bookends. The one above is from Restoration Hardware and looks similar to a few I bought at a flea market in Atlanta.
For the reception area I am using this reclaimed wood coffee table and the occasional wing chairs I ordered from Hickory Chair. Yesterday I hung these picture ledges and painted them the color of the walls. I framed some 1800’s architectural and interior prints from France and placed them on the ledges.
Hopefully I will have my shipments soon and finish furnishing my office so I can actually sit down and get some work done!
