It only took one (sneak) peek at Leandra Medine's new office space for us to see that the folks at Homepolish — the interior geniuses responsible for the streamlined makeover — know what they're doing. Whether it's a total renovation or culling the perfect finishing touches, designers work by the hour to create a balanced space that just works. Oh, and they just launched in San Francisco & Chicago, too.
Let’s face it, when it comes to clients, I can’t think of anyone more fun to work with than Kelly Oxford, a writer whose hilarious Twitter feed launched her into literary stardom. She’s busy these days working on screenplays and taking fancy meetings, so she brought in Homepolish to help spruce up her new office. She was the easiest person to design with, mainly because she likes everything I like and I basically got to design an office for myself and pretend it was for her. Just kidding! Sort of!
We looked at the offices of some of our favorite writers (Joan Didion and Roald Dahl topped the list) as our initial inspiration. Luckily, Kelly’s office is on a storied Hollywood film lot in a building filled with some of the industry’s most talented, hilarious writers, and the space we ended up with was a great representation of Kelly’s eclectic, unique style. It's cozy and small, and the makeover we did gives some great insight into how you can transform your office (or any space in your home) without going crazy and spending your whole life savings.
