Room Design By: Olivia Marshall
Final Design Review By: Emily Hughes

This client came to us when she started converting her unfinished basement into a finished extension of her home.  She wanted the lower-level guest bedroom to also function as her daily home office for a side job that had grown into an everyday job with demands for storage and a pleasant-looking backdrop for zoom meetings and video shoots.

We began her design process by reviewing the client’s inspiration images on Pinterest, taking before photos and measurements of her existing space and custom artwork (by talented local artist @bekahash) that she wanted to incorporate into her room design. The artwork ended up serving as a focal point in the room, while also covering up an unsightly electrical panel.

Designer Olivia Marshall drew up a furniture layout for the room and put together a design concept to show our client how the items would look together in her space.  The details on all of the furniture and accessories were then put onto a room board for the client’s review.  Based on our client’s feedback, we then transferred her design preferences onto a proposal and ordered everything on her behalf.  Olivia went along with the delivery team to direct item placement in the room and prepare the accessories and little details for the reveal to our client.  

This was one of Olivia Marshall’s first design installations with Emily Hughes Interiors. After seeing our client’s tearily happy reaction to the creation of her home office space she shared, “There is truly nothing more exciting as a designer than seeing an idea that once lived only on your computer screen, come to life in our client’s space.”
