I’m sure many share my excitement about Domino magazine’s relaunch recently. I finally gave the issue (Holiday 2013) a close read and my favorite feature is on Eva Chen’s office space. Eva is the new editor in chief of Lucky, a fab shopping magazine, so it makes sense for her work space to be as fashionable as her wardrobe.
Designed by Lauren and Suzanne McGrath of Good Bones, Great Pieces, her new office space feels fun and fresh. Here are a few decorating lessons we can learn from this Domino story on Eva’s office:
Weave in bold accessories.
From the yellow Margaret Lanzetta artwork behind the desk to the ikat print chairs, the bulk of the accessories in the office are full of color. This is especially important when sticking with white walls.
Patterned rugs just work.
I rarely buy rugs in solid colors because I believe patterns also make a space feel a little more inviting. My point is proven by the Moroccan-style West Elm rug chosen for her office. It just makes so much sense.
A neutral sofa doesn’t have to be boring.
Bring energy to a neutral sofa with vivid pillows. It’s always smart to make sure any neutral sofa has small details to take things up a notch. The beige trim around the cushions here really make it stand out.
