Looking for office remodel ideas? Let Texas designers Katie Davis and Julie Dodson inspire with these bespoke home office and corporate spaces where form meets function.
Designer Katie Davis of Katie Davis Design used the upbeat aura of her client, Courtney Paddock, founder of the event planning firm Little Coterie Studio, as a jumping off point for her home office in Houston. “She’s a party planner, she’s exciting and bubbly—this is her space and we wanted it to reflect her personality,” says Davis. To that end, Benjamin Moore’s Wythe Blue-painted walls form a backdrop for cheery pink sofa upholstery by Schuyler Samperton Textiles and heirloom chairs recovered in chartreuse Maresca Textiles fabric. Meanwhile, an oversize coffee table provides ample space for vendor presentations and meetings, and a center cabinet between two workstations ensures plenty of storage. Let the event planning begin.
For a corporate office in The Woodlands, designer Julie Dodson of Dodson Interiors created a sophisticated, classic and warm environment nodding to the client’s home country of Argentina. With Abel Design Group also onboard to assist with the architecture, Dodson created what she calls a “masculine transitional” look—mixing traditional styles with streamlined silhouettes and modern artworks. “We wanted it to feel light and airy but grounded at the same time,” explains Dodson, who replicated the chairs in front of the desk after a family heirloom of the client’s for a personal touch. “Even if it’s corporate, you can add personality by introducing something that reminds the client of home.”
