Cool News and Cool Work Space

Over the weekend we had the pleasure of having brunch with Brooke Richard of Orange Street Design Studio and her husband, David Gerzof of Big Fish Communications.   It was a creative and lively chat about interior design, furniture concepts and blogging.   I'm delighted to announce that Brooke will be an occasional guest blogger.  Having collaborated with her in the past on several design projects,  I know and value her sense of aesthetics.  Brooke's knowledge and love of design will be an exciting addition to Cocoon's blog.

For a taste of her style, take a look at the shared office  she and her business partner created for Orange Street Design Studio and Big Fish Communications.  It's a mixture of grainy textures, earthy tones and shiny finishes.  (And yes,  husband and wife share this awesome work space!)

Dark wood floors contrast with a light wood sliding barn door that welcomes you into the space. The wood for the doors was sourced from Longleaf and constructed by Loki Design.

The light filled conference room is warm and welcoming for both clients and co-workers.  Touches of botanicals liven the space up while a wall stencil pays tribute to the business of PR.

The stencil was inspired by an open newspaper (torn edges included).  Adhering the stencil was time intensive but the result was very worth it.

The second floor is where Orange Street Design Studio lets its ideas flow. Venting skylights provide plenty of natural light and good air circulation for the work environment.
