It is hard to believe that another summer has come and gone, but what a crazy summer it has been for us here at Maven!
We have been blessed with so many amazing projects this summer that made us forget the 100+ degree weather outside, except for the day the air conditioning went out in the workroom. It was a very sweaty day for interior design.
One of my favorite projects we have been working on this summer has to be the office. We were tasked with furnishing and designing an entire floor of an office space, complete with a kitchenette and a common area. This has been in the works for a few months and it has been awesome to see it all come together. The planning and preparation for this project has been a challenge but such a fun process.
 It was a neat progression to see our plans come to life. Part of our design process is creating a mockup for our clients. People are generally visual, so it helps to create a two-dimensional depiction of what the spaces will look like.
 Below are some side-by-side pictures of our initial plans, and the actual outcome in the space!
  
One of my favorite parts of the office has to be the six custom burl wood desks made for each individual office. They give the setting a Mad Men inspired feel, also adding functionality and cohesiveness to the entire floor.
 
Colorful artwork and funky furniture pieces were key to making our clients feel less like corporate drudges in every other office and more like a group of people working together for the greater good, in a unique and stylish space!
The kitchenette is fully functional with a dishwasher, refrigerator and storage space. We chose a white, modern, marble, round table from Minimal and Modern for dining, with contemporary black chairs that compliment our motif of black, white, and green.
 
We are nearing completion, and I can’t wait to show you the finished product! Stay tuned for more updates on one of my favorite projects!
