Home Sweet Home

I work from home.  Even though my photography studio is the beautiful outdoors, most of my time is really spent in my office.  I edit my images here.  I meet with my clients for their consultations and ordering sessions here.  I package orders here.  It's a place that I wanted to feel inspired in, but was not.

When I thought about making changes to my space, I asked myself what inspires me.  Rustic pieces, barn wood, shabby chic....everything that my office wasn't!

I turned to Sheryl Amos, owner of Whimsical Place, for help.  Whimsical Place is my favorite store in Woodbury.  I find myself stopping by whether I need to pick up a gift for a friend or am looking for fun home accessories or jewelry.   Even when I need nothing at all but a few minutes of being in a place that makes me happy, I stop by Whimsical Place.

Sheryl introduced me to her amazing designer, Kim Owens of Kimberly Ann Designs.  I met Kim and was impressed with the time she took to create the perfect space for me.  Kim space-planned the room for the best layout, asked me all the right questions about how I really use the space.  She didn't miss a detail!  She even brought barn wood into my room as she customized a desk for both workspace and meeting with my clients!  It's so perfect!  Kim sketched and custom designed my furniture pieces to make sure everything I required from a work standpoint was included.   The creation was practical (as she planned storage for my printer and external hard drives keeping them out of sight), all while creating a look that inspires me!

Together, Sheryl and Kim selected paint color and proper lighting (no more dark room) that makes this space a happy place!  Call me trusting or call me crazy (or maybe I just watch too much HGTV), but  I left my office that day and these two talented women decorated my space in a way that perfectly represents Colleen Davis Photography!
