Why This Works

Happy Thursday and welcome to the series Why This Works where I highlight a designed space and talk about what I love! This next office space is beautiful- I can see myself getting some serious work done there, while also some great blogging! It is the office space of designer Charlotte Moss, and I love everything about it!



What first brings me into this space is all of the amazing color... it awakens and inspires! I love the color blocking on the bookshelves, making it look like a chic rainbow of books. All of her design inspiration is carried onto the large, rustic work table, with stacks of books that are easily accessible. This is exactly how I like to work too- surrounded by inspiration with everything in reach! The flowers also make this space! The color is great and it draws your eye right in. The room might appear busy at first glance, but I think it is a very functional and practical design. The white bookshelves anchor the space, allowing for the rest of the color accessories to stand out and not compete with each other. The blue and white vases on top of the bookshelf works so well paired with the golden hue on the walls. It is very similar to our dining room colors, which is why I think I was drawn to the space so much! The natural fiber area rug is a nice neutral and works well paired with all of the color in the room. I have really been drawn to lantern style chandeliers lately, and this one is beautiful above the work area! The peek into the other room shows beautiful flowing drapery with a large print, giving a modern nod to a traditional print. The framed artwork to the left has simple black frames, giving another modern touch to a traditional space. The frames are simple and allow your eye to rest after all of the bold colors in the space. Overall, this space works and I could work here! If you would like to see more of Charlotte Moss's work, go here.

I agree with you, the color is the key to this whole space. There is an effortless flow for the eye to follow without any competing design elements.

Beautiful space! Without the color it would be very bland, the textures throughout are wonderful too. Thanks for sharing with us today, I'm going to check out her other work!

The books grouped by color look amazing on this bookshelf! Also, I love the lantern!

This room, looks to me, like the perfect blend of warm neutrals and bright color. So often it's one or the other. I'm also enjoying the "lived-in" look of it!

Love the color coding.

I love all of the color on the shelves too! And I also like the look when the artwork goes to the ceiling too. This is really pretty but I'd also want to see more (as usual) since all of the table space is taken up by books - that makes me a little antsy :)
