Home Office-Part 3, the Results:by Irene Turner Interior Design Firms

I’m thrilled to say I’m actually sitting in my new office as I write the third in the series of switching my home office posts.  Three weeks from the start and I’m 98% done, and Ron, well, he’s about 80% done.  I’m am one happy client!

My Home Office-Sonoma Style

As is wont to do, a couple of things changed along the way.  First of all, I didn’t glaze my walls.  I love the color as is.  And, I didn’t end up angling my desk.  I didn’t like sitting under a beam and there was a lot more floor space with the desk head on.  It also hides a lot of the functional parts of my business, ie; printers, faxs, files etc.  from my seating space.

The re-cap:   

  • I have my light and airy space
  • We only used what we had between the two of us, no new pieces
  • The color feels warm, uplifting and is definitely stimulating
  • I set my office up with feng shui principles ;emphasis on strong wealth, relationship and career corners, and all with strong visuals that are meaningful to me
  • I have a great place to meditate, and space to invite friends over to meditate as well
  • Plenty of shelving, filing and work space
  • The lighting is great, both during the day and at night too.  Even on a rainy day it’s light, and with sunlight, it actually glows
  • And, I got rid of a lot of clutter and pared down, clean up and out with this move as well!

Check, and re-check…The energetics of space™ is great!

Ron’s office is coming along.  I’ve done about as much as I can do to help.  Now it’s a matter of him hooking up all his recording equipment, hanging his guitars and storing the small stuff.  But it’s looking good, and the room definitely looks bigger then when I was in it with all my big furniture.  It’s a win win.

In general, it’s done…for now.  Of course I already have plans for the next stage.  But that’s later, when we build Ron his real sound studio in the room above the garage that has yet to be built!  Don’t tell Ron…I find it’s better to spring my plans just a bit at a time!  You can see the details and all angles of my new office in the video below.

So the question is…are you happy with your office space?

    Love the transformation Irene…and the video is a visual delight!

    Irene,
    I love, love, love it! What a beautiful transformation. I love the color of the walls. It’s a color I don’t think I would have been brave enough use. Now that I see it, though, I think I could! You have inspired me to spruce up my space a bit. Since my office is in the basement, I’m envious of all the light you have. Thanks so much for sharing the process of your makeover. Truly enjoyed the journey with you!

    Irene, I love your new office! I like that you put in space for meditation. What a great idea. It’s warm and uplifting and your video was awesome. Good Job!

    You did a great job with the transformation. Congratulations on using both feng shui principles and reusing the things you already had to create the new space. I am in awe.

  8. Wow, this is just gorgeous. I love the wall color and the red touches throughout the room.
    I – for the first time – actually HAVE an office of my own, so I’m pretty thrilled about it. I painted the walls a deep scarlet red and put up bookshelves on two walls… they’re already filled with books. my next step is to update the furniture, it’s an odd assortment of hand-me-down pieces right now. thanks for sharing the inspiration!

    Irene, I’m loving the new office. It feels more like a sanctuary than anything 🙂 I wish I could have one just like this but don’t have enough space at the moment.

    I also love how you put it together in the video. Which video editing software do you use? Love the music too! Where did you get it?

    Very nice Irene. The wall color is very nice and reminds me a little bit of juicy pomegranate. I think you definitely have enough warmth and color there that wouldn’t need the wall glaze. The room looks so nicely organized and uncluttered. Like it!

    I LOVE what you did! 1-the colors in your office are beautiful and warm. 2-loved your video, I can’t wait to add a video to my blog (I hope it lets me do that). Frankly I was pretty excited got pictures to work on there.

    I love your new office! I hope that everyone who has Sonoma County Properties finds you to assist them in their transformation. Any body who needs a Santa Rosa design firm would hit the jackpot if the find you.

    I love it. I want to learn more about the energetics of space to transform areas in my house. You have great ideas.
