Reader Project! Amanda's new office

We’re kicking off this week with a lovely before and after re-do. Get ready to fall in love with Amanda’s new office – it’s fresh, modern and warm. Yes, I said modern AND warm, which is hard to accomplish. Amanda is a fellow Portlander and works in design, and she clearly has a knack for making things lovely. She also has a wonderful online shop you must visit – Dorothy Jeanne.

Now, here are the fabulous photos she sent my way as well as a few words about her new space…

From Amanda:

My original inspiration was a room in The Tides hotel, designed by Kelly Wearstler. I love her use of orange, gold and rosy pink, along with the graphic black and white print of the rug. At first I wanted to go very vintage glam with the room, but as it came together, it ended up being more subtle, and really more my style.

So lovely, right? She completed the entire room for less than $500 and most of the goodies seen above were Craigslist finds. Also, for those who love the paint color Amanda chose (me!), it’s Spring Thaw from good ol’ Benjamin Moore.

Amanda’s also giving away some pretty pillows on her blog today – enter here.

Three cheers to a great week!

    I would LOVE to know what kind of chair that is. Is there a manufacturer’s label anywhere on it? I’m just enthralled by this room, I feel so at home there just looking at the pictures.
