Architectural Digest predicted an increase in home office investments for 2022. We have seen this remodel trend in the Lakes Region. Recently, we collaborated with Decorative Interiors to design a home office featuring a professional Zoom backdrop.
"Having the smaller of the two offices, Decorative Interiors knew there wouldn’t be much furnishing in the space. However, it would be neat to incorporate a burst of color for that Zoom backdrop."
The home office project is part of a whole house renovation. Specifically, a 4800 square foot, seasonal lake home on Winnipesaukee. Watch our Glendale Site Visit video for a home tour.
The office area was a bunkroom in the lower level with unfinished pine shiplap. With little to no natural light, the space was not conducive for remote work.
THE DESIGN PLAN
One of the first requirements in the design of the homeowner’s office was that she wanted to have a Zoom wall. Having the smaller of the two offices, Decorative Interiors knew there wouldn’t be much furnishing in the space. However, it would be neat to incorporate a burst of color for that Zoom backdrop.
Friends TV Show Office Space
Stephanie Wentworth, of Decorative Interiors, used the Friends TV show as inspiration for this office design. She is reusing a tufted loveseat by having it reupholstered in purple chenille. It will mimic the couch from the show and look amazing in front of this Zoom backdrop.
This wall covering from Kravet Fabrics called Bella Books is part of the Kate Spade Collection. The color is Confetti.
It includes saturated colors with a whimsical bookcase motif. The large graphic nature of the accent wall will serve to be the perfect backdrop for her zoom calls.
