CULTIVATED OFFICE

CULTIVATED OFFICE 150 150 admin

“It was funny, she thought, that before she had ever had a job she had always thought of an office as a place where people came to work, but now it seemed as if it was a place where they also brought their private lives for everyone else to look at, paw over, comment on and enjoy.” – Rona Jaffe, The Best of Everything

Perfect mix of old and new | D.L. RHEIN

We always love when a client comes back to us after we have completed a job, to help them with a new space or project.  One of our favorites was moving into a new office that had nothing but bare walls and industrial carpet.  We jumped at the chance to work with her again and create an inviting space to meet with her own clients.  As an agent, she is both business woman and therapist.  It was important to make this a place where people could feel comfortable yet inspired when visiting her at the office.  We took the pieces that would work from her old space and brought in additional items to round out the room.  The two paintings she acquired are filled with such vibrant colors, we put them front and center on the main wall so everything could play off of that.  Lavender and green embroidered pillows are a fun mix with our Turkish Velvet pillows and sumptuous shearling in the center.  A large plant adds a touch of freshness (a must in every room) and provides oxygen in a place with recirculated air.  What to do with these camel colored chairs?  Bring in our faux tortoise coffee table, one of our top finds at an antique show while hunting on a buying trip on the east coast.  A bone tray from Regina Andrew holds coffee table books and candy, while a stenciled cow hide adds another layer and covers the carpet in the center of the room.  read more

 BEFORE | OFFICE SPACE

We love when our clients come back to have us do additional work down the road from a completed project.  After completing an office for the head of an entertainment management group last year, we were ecstatic that he asked us to come back and transform a vast bonus room on their floor.  With a staff working tirelessly to come up with the next great thing, the owner wanted a place for his team to relax, kick back, and have fun while pitching each other ideas.  The result was a calming place that everyone wants to hang out in all the time.  read more

An Office Ikea Makeover | @D.L. Rhein

What to do with a cramped office space needing an update on a budget?  Go to Ikea!  This entertainment office was desperate for organization and some updating while keeping to a tight budget.  The simplest solution, built in cabinetry that was clean and modern that could hide the chaos behind it’s doors!  Before the desks were crammed around an open shelving unit that looked like a college dorm room during finals week.   After placing new Vika desks on either side of the new work station comprised of pieces from the Akurum collection, the office is functional and spacious.  A DL Rhein hooked rug adds a splash of color and pattern to the neutral flooring.  read more

The Beauty of Hollywood | @DL Rhein

OFFICE VIEW OF THE HOLLYWOOD HILLS

When I first went to my client’s new office, I was entranced by the insane view of the Hollywood Hills.  It appears like a painted backdrop, looking out from the penthouse floor of one of LA’s top Entertainment Management Firms.  A perfect setting for a place that holds meetings every day, and with a view that inspiring, it was time to kick the office up a notch before the next client rolled in.  read more
