Ombre Curtains & Modern Accent Wall Light Up a Home Office
Updated: Sep 3, 2019
New beginnings are essential for growth. Many times we are not thrilled about the catalyst that propels us into a new beginnings, however if you flip the paradigm, adversity can look like opportunity. The before was a slight little white room. Our goal was to make it a fun space that expresses who my client is. She wanted a place that she would feel good in, want to work in and be inspired.
I feel that how you physically approach a room is important. For instance, in this case, you climb a long flight of stairs, turn to your left, and there it is. Your sight line leads directly facing the window wall of the office. That is were we decided to do our big splash of a feature wall. We shopped wallpaper in her favorite shades of pink. We wanted something bold and exciting. There is a large canvas on one of the walls that was done by an artist friend. We landed on this beautiful @designersguild Rasetti design in fuchsia. It has a beautiful raspberry and gold patina. We used the wallpaper as a base. These floating shelves were a good way to display keepsakes and memorabilia. One way to make the windows seem bigger than it actually is is to hang the curtains way up at the top of the wall.
I decided to DIY ombre curtains in the same shade as the wallpaper.

This gives the illusion of tall windows. We were really inspired by ombre or what in art school we referred to as dip dyed curtains.
My client and I are thrilled with the results! You can check out some video DIY insights on this project below. Thanks for visiting!
