If you named your project what would it be called and why?
This office design project was named "Design Project Remarkable". I decided to name it this because I wanted it to be the definition of what remarkable means- worthy of notice or attention.
What was your inspiration/design vision for this space?
Our client requested modern elegance with black and white elements finished off with pops of slate blue. They wanted to work in an office that has simplicity and style.
What was it that drew you to Metallic Blue and Grey fabric?
It was the perfect selection to add a splash of color to the seating and our client loves it.
I think our favorite detail about this office space is the dark painted ceiling. Can you give tips on how to know when to use an accent wall vs. an accent ceiling?
We always encourage our clients to paint the fifth wall (the ceiling). Even with this office not have the tallest ceiling, we needed to create a way to draw the eyes up. The slate blue gray ceiling paint was the perfect way to do so and add interest as well as a pop of color.
