With the exception of the black crystal mini chandelier (which arrived to me in 8,123 pieces and the most useless directions ever) that needs to be assembled and hung, and a few more canvases that need to go up on the walls, my new office renovation is finished – woo-hoo! I mixed contemporary furniture with vintage styles, and LOVED how it turned out! I scoured catalogs and the internet, and kept a notebook of the things I loved. I measured over and over again to find the exact pieces to fit my space. It was so much fun – I don’t think I’ve ever had a completely blank canvas to decorate before. I thought I would share some before and after images of my new digs….

Overview of the “after”

Before & After: Here is the side where all the work gets done

Before & After: And here is the side where I meet with clients, display my sample albums and store all of my gear and supplies in the original cedar closet (this was previously a bedroom).

A bunch of fun little details in the office: (clockwise from top left) my packaging ribbon (if you’ve ordered products from the studio, you are quite familiar with this); my new favorite chairs; my co-ordinated file folders (so glad office supplies are so fun these days); and my vintage camera collection, with my sample albums below.

Hope you enjoyed this glimpse into my office here at Kelly Vasami Photography. Feel free to stop by for the grand tour if you are in the neighborhood!

    It’s nothing like I pictured and WAY better than I imagined! It looks GREAT!!!! Wow. What a SUPER use of the space, Kelly. LOVE all the black and white. AHhh, have you had “real” clients in there with you yet? Are you doing “real” work in there yet? Looks great!!!

    Thanks MckMama!

    I met my first clients in the new office last month on Friday the 13th, and had great luck! They are a super-cool couple and they booked me for their wedding next year. (Shout out to Jay and Amanda!)

    I’ve been working in the new office for over a month now – I love it!

    Thanks Kristen! No plans for an interior design company any time soon 😉 Purely a hobby.

    Thanks Lunell! I found the Kodak Brownie flash camera (far right) in our attic, and the rest on eBay.

    Oh my goodness…when can I move in??? It might be a little tight with my two kids, husband, and kitty, but how about we trade spaces and you decorate MY house while we stay in your office? Honestly, your taste is impeccable. I am in love with the fabrics (esp. the curtains!). Love it love it, love it!!!

    What a huge change! Before, the room looked so basic that it could be compared to an emptied storeroom. After the makeover, it turned into a vintage-looking workplace truly fitting for an inspired mind! By the way, how long did it took you guys to completely redecorate the place?
