A Bright Redesign for a New Jersey Home Office

Montclair, New Jersey

When our client approached Decor Aid about redesigning her home in Montclair, New Jersey, the first space she wanted to tackle was the home office. As a businesswoman, our client desired the flexibility to work from home, and wanted to remain productive during the rest of the redesign process. But she also wanted to carve out a bit of space for herself within a busy household, and to have a space that felt reflective of her precise aesthetic.

Our client’s well-defined sense of style is bright, fresh, preppy, and modern, which conflicted with the sensibility of her former home office. The entire space needed to be redesigned, starting with the dark, wooded walls. We re-lacquered the walls with a sky blue color, for a brighter, airier feel.

Once the walls were finished, bold furniture pieces were added, to complement our client’s distinctive style. The pattern used for the custom window treatments matches the two chair pillows, both of which contrast against the solid colors elsewhere in the room. A tall mirror, with a chrome frame, gives the space a larger feel. We reupholstered the chairs with a contrast piping, and the side table was given a custom pink finish.

But it was the fine details and final additions that transformed this home office into a truly individualized space. The Lulu DK Print on the wall, and a few pieces on the bookshelf, gave the space a more personalized feel. The final touch was the Jonathan Adler light fixture, which complimented the modern vibe in this home office, while incorporating our client’s distinctive style.
