DS Office Makeover: The Reveal!

by Grace Bonney

After a lot of work, cleaning, organizing and pairing-down of props, the back-half of our office is finally ready to see the light of day! Instead of the terrifying heap of craft supplies and maze of boxes and equipment, we now have a clean (and beautiful) space to work, craft and have team meetings. Not only are we happy about it, but I’m pretty sure all of our team dogs jumped for joy to see that they now have a new clean space to nose-around in and a new rug to nap on.

Our original goal with this back half of the office was to make it feel like it’s own little room-within-a-room. None of us had ever had the privilege of working in an open studio space this large before, so we really wanted to find a way to create small rooms within our space so it felt more cozy and more manageable. offered to spearhead the project and gave us some great pieces we used to create our team meeting and lunch spot and we had fun customizing those pieces (some gold spray paint here, a little white paint there) to make them fit the style of the office.

Designer of was kind enough to step in and help us pull it all together- she convinced me the space could handle a so we picked a pattern that then informed the entire space- from the new wall color to re-painted pipes in the ceiling. We couldn’t be happier with the final result and we’re so excited to share our new space on the site today! xo, grace
