The paint is complete in my office. The Farrow & Ball Wimborne White is the perfect white. It is just warm enough without being yellow at all or cold.It will be the perfect accent to the gallery wall and art that is coming. The trim and cabinets are Hague Blue. This is a longstanding favorite color. It has such depth and vibrancy while staying dark. The conference room is currently getting her facelift as is the vestibule between the offices.
My collection of heads arrived from Africa. I love them so!
I have a great painting also from Morocco to grace the space behind my desk.
I have long craved this Trinket Table from Global Views and thought my office needed it.
Here are some art pieces going to be hung soon. I have a weakness for faces.
The long awaited Iris Apfel, my style icon, gallery wall is coming together. Two more pieces will be added as soon as they are back from the framer.

I am slightly paranoid that I over-furnitured. I did this all by feel without measuring…a true gift MOST of the time. (Clients do not worry, I measure for you. I promise!) I am worried… yet, I always worry.
Most pieces (other than the fab pink sofa) should install this week and they look a bit larger than anticipated. YIKES! Thank you goodness I am flexible.
The other thing is I still do not love the cabinets (see the 1st image above). They just are flat and need more detail. I have just ordered a faux leather to upholster the fronts and add nailheads…. We shall see how this turns out.
Here are the upholstered doors I gathered from Pinterest for inspiration:
I do love an upholstered door. Don’t you?
