BEFORE (pretty sad looking place)
AFTER (Aaaahhh…much better!)
My client is a therapist and came to me when she was ready to open her own private practice. She was looking for the space to be calm, warm, and a place she could even use for her own meditation. As I designed the office, I kept in mind to stick to neutrals, colors of the beach and peacock colors (her favorite), to create the mood we were looking for. These were the color palettes I kept referring back to.
This is the inside cover of an antique book that I framed. The colors worked perfectly for our palette. I also added a little pop of pink to each side of the room, which added a bit of contrast and vibrancy. When decorating a therapy office, you want to stick with neutrals and soothing colors. The small added pops of a contrasting color is optional, but I think it gives just the right amount of a boost of energy to the room. You definitely want your clients to feel calm and relaxed, but you don’t want then falling asleep! 🙂
Saw this vase and fell in love! I was looking for some white pieces to contrast the blue wall and this piece adds great texture. I placed a trailing plant inside the vase and love the life it breathes into the office!
My drawing of this bird was the perfect addition to this little vignette. You don’t always need to frame every picture. You can lean it on the side of the bookcase, if that’s the view when walking in the door. Or, you can lean it against the back of the bookcase and layer other items in front of it to give the decor some depth.
The best part of designing therapy offices is knowing that I am taking a small part in the healing process of many people!
