Inside a Style Blogger's Insanely Chic Office Makeover


We're always looking for ways to improve our productivity, and while you may not think your dГ©cor has much of an impact on that, a lackluster workspace can be a culprit for a lapse in efficiency, leaving you uninspired or unmotivated. This is especially relevant for those who work from home, which was why style blogger Cara LorenВ tapped Joss & MainВ to turn her workspace in Salt Lake City into a super chic office.

As a working mom, Loren also needed the stylish space to be kid-friendly, which she agrees is a hard thing to master, but is totally necessary. "I always have a couple pieces in my rooms that I know are a little iffy for my kids, but I try my hardest to teach them that there are certain pieces that are only to look at," she continued. "Now, this obviously doesn't work all the time, especially with a 2-year-old, so if you are going to have pieces like that in a room, you have to be okay if something happens to them."

We're in love with the Bohemian Midcentury vibe and fun colors in the revamped space. The focal point of the room, the jewel-toned green velvet sofa,В is everything. "My absolute favorite pieces would have to be the sofa and hanging chair," Loren told MyDomaine. "They are the pieces that make the room fun, and that emerald green stole my heart immediately."

Loren brought in more jewel tones with a fuchsia patterned area rug and mixed throw pillows. It makes the space feel polished, yet a little bit eclectic and cozy.

One of Loren's favorite pieces in the room, this hanging chair offers a unique alternative to traditional seating. The sheepskin rug and pillows were another opportunity to incorporate pattern and texture.
