One of the areas of my home that is in constant need of an upgrade is my office. As a decorator, my office is often the temporary home of a whole host of items: boxes filled with products to install in my clients home, a plethora of fabric samples, and the occasional can of paint. There are times I’d like to just blow it up and start completely over with a new look. When I had a glimpse at the new HP Spectre Laptop, my mind nearly exploded – this was the inspiration I needed to begin to tackle this project. The touch of copper and sleek lines inspired me into the direction I hoped for in this project.
Recently, I’ve been attracted to things with a copper flair. I’m not one who would necessarily want copper pots in my kitchen (too much upkeep) but I like a hint of it in décor. Copper has warmth to it and at the same time seems modern and current. I started with a few accessories in my office but I could also see expanding it to more substantial objects too. As with any new idea, I like to start with a mood board that helps me to visualize the spirit of the ideas I have floating around in my head.
The next step is to put together the items that I might include in the room. This room anatomy is how I would build an office with this “hint” of copper. Not over the top, but an elegant touch of copper. What I love the most in this concept is the computer that works so beautifully with the warmth of copper. The new HP Spectre has clean lines, is super thin, and actually draws inspiration from high-end furniture. The computer not only functions flawlessly, but it melds perfectly in a beautifully designed room. Take a look more closely on their ‘Making Of’ video.
So now that I’ve conceived the new office, it's time to shake it up and improve how it looks and how it functions. This is definitely a project I can get excited about!
