Vanessa De Vargas Mixes it up!
Energetic and Ingenious are just two words that capture the essence of who Vanessa De Vargas is. For those of you who may not be familiar with this west side wonder September will mark the one year anniversary of Turquoise her chic high-end mid century furniture boutique located on trendy Abbott Kinney Blvd in Venice, CA. Her talents don't stop there she also is an incredible Interior designer, Blogger and contributing editor for Apartment Therapy
The images showcased today mark a change in Vanessa's style, for her latest interior design project she adopted more of a whimsical feel for her client, a Record Executive at Suretone Records whose office is located in Santa Monica.
I asked Vanessa to give an overview of her project:
My client handles many high profile rock and pop artists and since she spends so much time at the office I created a place that felt like a “home” office. We decorated the space with floor to ceiling linen drapes, a custom white lacquered Louis style desk. I had custom floating Lucite shelves designed by Jordan Cappella Collection that are set against gold and white wallpaper. The office included tons of storage boxes and bins for her clients CD and demo reels. We had the walls painted in a soft robins egg blue and accented the office with teal and red. Moroccan and Asian influences. The Chesterfield tufted sofa was upholstered down the center with a red and white floral fabric panel.
The space looks fantastic.
