I met Ashley Manhan, one of the principals of Avenue Interior Design, years ago now I think...met her through good friend KD...and was invited to a dinner party at her well styled house. Thought Ashley had a wonderful sense of design then and still do.
Just this week or last week or at some point in the past (I have no sense of time as everything in my life blurs together...), Ashley emailed me some fab before and after shots of the office she and her two partners (Casey Noble and Andrea DeRosa) designed as the headquarters for their growing interior design business.
Love this space...it is friendly, organized (so key for any work space), fresh, accessible and pretty. Done...I would like to work in that space!
Design wise...it is a great mix of modern classics, vintage pieces and new furniture all melded together to make a fabulously cohesive space. Take a look.

Love this office space. I need a great office space. I need someone to come in and organize my office space like this!
Ashley, Andrea and Casey also have an e-decorating service called I Heart Design by Avenue...love their concept of building a room...they assign everyone a design personality type and then work from there!
What do you think? What do you like about this space? What tricks have you used in your own home office? Where do you set up "shop" when you are at home on your computer? Would love to know.
P.S. Thank you Caitlin of Caitlin Wilson Designs Style Files and Jody from Design Serendipity for the nice posts this week regarding the COCOCOZY collection! So nice of you!
