Current Project: Kiyonna Corporate Headquarters

I've been working on a challenging project the last several months and wanted to show you a sneak peek of the progress. My clients purchased an old office building and the interior was beyond disgusting (it was a former factory and FILTHY in every sense of the word). After basically taking the place down to the studs, moving walls, tearing everything out, etc., we focused on designing the reception area first. I took a few snapshots of how it's looking so far. It's the corporate headquarters for a women's clothing company called Kiyonna, and have to say I'm pretty darn happy with how it's coming along! Please note these photos aren't styled and the space isn't completely finished, but you get the idea.

BEFORE
Main reception wall

AFTER
We decided to keep the ceiling exposed and painted it a nice charcoal gray color. The wallpaper really sets the tone of the space and is such a fantastic focal point upon entering the building. 

We had the desk custom built and I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out!

 I'm in LOVE with this wallpaper by Clarke & Clarke. The darker color is a deep plum / purple (it's kind of hard to tell in the photo)

BEFORE
This is the opposite wall that leads into the clothing boutique showroom.

 AFTER
My clients decided not to do doors leading into the boutique, so I made sure to create an opening that was nice focal point. We did white walls (Dunn Edwards Swiss Coffee) with custom wall moulding that tied in with the reception desk. More of this project to come!
