New Digs for EOS!

Last week I decided to make the leap from a home business to one with an honest to goodness office. In February, after some renovations, I will be moving my business into a fabulous studio loft in the Fort Point neighborhood of Boston. Remember this fun place I blogged about before? Yep, I am shacking up with all those talented, funny, awesome people- some others who are moving in too!  The creative brain power will probably create it’s own energy source there will be so much of it. And of course, I’m really excited to decorate it!  Right now it looks like a big, screaming mess- but there will be some refurbished and repainted walls and ceiling, a smooth concrete floor and lighting to have as much jumping off point.  Now if only I could decide on what I wanted to do to it!

I am having them leave the walls that have this fabulous textured pattern on them- how cool!

Baxter and Oliver will have to get used to coming to work with Mommy- but I bet they’ll be happy to considering our OTHER furry adorable studio playmate- Oscar!

For lighting I am thinking of hanging 6 of one of these IKEA fixtures:

Of course, I’ll need tons of storage- naturally I will use lots of IKEA bookshelves which are pretty sleek and affordable:

I think I want my desk to be skirted like Michelle Adams’ from Lonny and Rubie Green, but I may just use a few of these elegant but industrial ones as well. Also from IKEA. Of course.

I am certainly going to use these pair of gorgeous cane detailed wingback chairs in there (once I repaint white and re-upholster is something divine!)

I have a feeling I might get to imbibe in my black paint fix in this space- just one wall- maybe in chalkboard paint which is what Jenna Lyons used in her bedroom. That way I could actually use it to remind myself to stay on take because now I have RENT TO PAY. Kind of like this delightful office from Domino:

A couple other office spaces I fancy:

The wall in this office is made entirely out of old magazines- I seriously think I have hoarded enough to replicate this…
