Before & After: Office Makeover

Over the past year, I’ve been working with a local massage therapist who was looking for a change in her office and treatment room.  Check out the before and after photos to see what a difference some small changes can make!

My client’s office is located in one half of an old home, so it already had some nice light and architectural detail, including a brick fireplace.  But, the space was cluttered and contained a hodge-podge of mismatched furniture and accessories.  The paint color in the entry was warm, but the furniture didn’t make sense…

She asked me to help her create a space that was welcoming to her clients, warm and inviting, but one that wouldn’t cost an arm and a leg to create.  And, since she is renting her suite, we didn’t want to make major changes to the structure of the space.  This is the result…

Instead of just a few diplomas hung on the wall near the door, we created a grouping of them with a large piece of artwork to make them a focal point in the entry.  The custom-made bench was a bit of a splurge, but offers guests a place to wait.  The largest wall in the room now has something to say!

In the treatment room, a few furniture additions helped her eliminate the clutter from the space.  She wanted this room to be tranquil for her clients, yet she does have a certain number of tools she needs readily available to her during a treatment session.  Some storage pieces allow her to stash them away, yet have them handy when needed.

We didn’t eliminate everything she already had…we just rearranged them and added a few new pieces to tie colors and textures together.

The window treatments stayed, and we found furniture to work with the existing color scheme.  A big change on a small budget!

So, what do you think?  Did we achieve her goal of warm, inviting and uncluttered?  I think so…and, she loves it!  Thankfully, her clients do, too.
