Kristin Kerr Interiors | Office Space



Happy Friday!  I've been meaning to write this post since November but the timing never felt right.  Why you ask?  Well, I needed to figure out some of the logistics before screaming from the rooftops but now, two months and one can of chalkboard paint later, I feel proud to share the news that I am officially self employed and the proud owner of Kristin Kerr Interiors!

Yikes, right? In November I stopped working at my full-time finance job and finally took the plunge into the world of self employment.  The timing felt right but to be honest the reality of my current situation didn't really sink in until after the holidays.  I am so thrilled to be starting this new adventure but at the same time I am completely overwhelmed.  At my old job, everyday would crawl by but now I feel like there are not enough hours in the day to get everything done.

Where am I going with this?  This week I decided to make Kristin Kerr Interiors feel a bit more official so I cleared out my den and set up shop.  I already owned pretty much everything in the inspiration board pictured above I just needed to get organized and make the space look pretty.  My all white walls were killing me so I bought a $9 can of chalkboard paint and went to town on one of the walls.  I don't know if I will actually write on the wall with chalk (I feel like it gets too messy) but I like the contrast of the black vs white walls and the way my Ikea pendant pops against it (first picture above). I'll photography the space as soon as I clean up the piles of paper but for now I leave you with some of the spaces that inspired my design.

The office is just the beginning of the good things to come so I hope you will follow along on my journey and, of course, pass along my information to anyone you know who is in need of a designer!

  16. It is very nice if you have only the things you will need in the office. Like your laptop, phone, etc. It is not advisable to bring all your things in the office. It will be looking like you are leaving there further most if you have a small space in you office. There are many options in looking for big space for your office, try looking at the makati office space for rent you definitely find ones.

  19. I love your choice for an ideal workspace! I think studying and working can be improved by our physical environment. In fact, some studies have shown that natural lighting and a good working environment boosts memory.

  20. I love your inspiration board. It has a slightly Victorian feel (correct me if I’m wrong) yet at the same time comes off modern and not campy. I especially love the storage desk. That I feel should be your centrepiece (and you seem to like it yourself as you have place it right on top, whether consciously or unconsciously) with everything else there as supporting players. Anyhow, good luck to your interior design business and I sure would love to see more of your designs on this website!
