In many homes, the office space tends to get overlooked when it comes to decorating – a room where papers and mail easily pile up and where that obligatory thing called work takes place. But imagine if that space was actually a joy to be in, a space that promoted creativity and productivity – oh the things you could accomplish in that room! Taking the time to give your office a little TLC and putting your personal stamp on it, can really go a long way.
If you haven’t already spruced up your home office, this beautiful workspace designed by Kari McIntosh for the 2017 San Francisco Decorator Showcase is sure to inspire you. Kari really pulled out all the stops with this fun, elegant space. From its bold, richly hued wallpaper and pops of gold, to its unique statement chandelier and colorful abstract artwork, getting work done from home never looked so good!

Aptly named The Balancing Point, Kari designed this workspace to be an “elegant escape” where one “can coordinate business and family logistics in style”.
Kari gives us all the details behind the design: “St. Frank’s Indigo Dots wallpaper sets the tone with a rich blue hue symbolizing the relationship between heaven and earth. An office desk, chairs, and accessorized étagère create an environment where creativity and productivity can flow. Artwork from Simon Breitbard Fine Arts, antiques and accessories from C. Mariani Antiques, blue and white Bolt Textiles curtains, a woven rug from Serena & Lily, a rustic textile-wrapped chandelier designed by local textile artist Llane Alexis with scrap fabric from Bolt Textiles, and a focus on furnishings and fabrics provided by local vendors make for an executive office she is sure to adore.”
Who wouldn’t look forward to working in a beautiful office space like this each day? Kari’s inspiring design would make even the most mundane tasks more enjoyable!
