Today I’m showing off where the magic happens—my office space! Originally featured over on Glitter Guide, you can read all of my tips for being a work-from-home mom on that post, and here I’m giving you the before and afters as well as insight into the design process with Havenly. (Scroll down for a discount code, too!)
When we moved into our house in September, it was high on our priority list to have a real room for me to design and make jewelry, store shipping materials, etc. (It had previously been done from my garage!). Since my new office space is actually a lofted area that’s visible from the front door, I knew it not only needed to be functional but really beautiful as well. When I reached out to Havenly for a little design assistance, they happily offered to help me put together the space, helping me take my initial inspiration and turn it into a gorgeous space I love to work in (which you can see here in all the photos!).
The havenly DESIGNS
The process was surprisingly easy for such a large task—designing an office from scratch. I picked a designer based on my styling goals and filled out a style profile, then the real collaboration began. My designer Priscilla sent over initial ideas (which incorporated pieces I already owned!) and I shared my likes and dislikes from the different concepts.
From there, she took the dimensions I’d provided her with and created a 3D rendering of my room featuring two final design concepts for me to choose from.
From the concept phase, I shared what I liked and disliked from each as well as picked an overarching favorite (concept #1), and she then moved forward to create a final design for me.
Final Design (from multiple angles)
Once I approved the final design, I was able to purchase the products directly from Havenly‘s site, which honestly made the whole process so simple and stress-free. I’m so happy with the final outcome! Here’s what it looks like in real life…
And there you have it—that’s where everything business-related happens. I make your jewelry here, ship your orders from here, and reply to my emails from here. It’s such a gorgeous space that makes me happy to spend time in.
I am so pleased with the end result and thankful Havenly was willing to partner with me to create this space (full disclosure: they provided some of the products I ultimately ended up with in my office). It was an incredible experience and I absolutely would consider using them for a different space in my house in the future. If you need any design help, check them out!
