ditto :: a lively and lovely office

You may remember this amazing space from my last post. It is a stunning office designed by Amanda Nisbet.
So ditto-worthy!

ditto :: {what I would steal from this space}:

  1. coral and navy and lime. simply a fantastic combination! This combo takes guts, but the colors are used judiciously, and balanced with large, neutral pieces.
  2. I am not much for the typical beige sofa. But I adore how beige-on-beige is used in this space, and made beautiful and lively with the use of varying textures. The amazing rug with a basket-weave texture plays against the simple and soft ultra-suede of the sofa. And this texture-play is made even more amazing by that furry, fuzzy, fluffy bean-bag wonderful-ness.
  3. A fantastic fabric has a strong presence as window panels, adding instant color and lighthearted liveliness to the room. See the bolster pillow on the sofa that is fashioned from the same fabric? A perfect tie-in… not to mention a great way to make a beige sofa/daybed more exciting. Even better if you adore coral.
  4. furry! That furry fru- fru floor cushion and the red sofa pillow tell us all not to take this office too seriously. Who says work can’t be fun??
  5. Old school telephones are the best.
  6. That chair is just amazing. Lime green? With black piping? and a mini-bolster at the head? with tufting? The chair has a lot of guts, but it makes the room.
  7. Although it is a bit hard to see here, I simply adore the floor lamp in the right hand foreground. The red, geometric base is makes this lamp a stunner, and ties in to the splash of red on the sofa. Punch color, anyone?
  8. A pendant lamp in the office. I love that particular pendant lamp… but I also love the notion of using a slim and airy pendant lamp hanging in the corner of an office.
  9. Everyone needs an electric green Long Island flanking their office walls, no? A fantastic piece of art. I wonder if Amanda did it herself…
This room is a beautiful and energetic space that surely offers the creative worker-bee plenty of inspiration. I am inspired already!
What do you most love about this office?

  • It is hard to believe this space is even an office. It has such a unique and beautiful color pallete.

  • My eye was immediately drawn to the chair. Oh my, that is stunning. But unless this office is designed for a really, really small person, that bolster
    is for people like me who need support for their back, not their head!
