My NYC Home Office

Hello everyone! I finally wanted to share some photos of my current office space here in my NYC apartment. These particular photos were shot by Janis Nicolay earlier this year. When I first decorated this space, I wanted something WILD & colorful, so I added FLOR tiles - which I love by the way & colorful art!

Interestingly enough, I just found out we'll be moving to another apartment in November!!!!  That means apartment NYC hunting next month + new office...woo hoo! Exciting!




Zebra print tiles are by FLOR


Abstract artwork is my own - you can see more in my online gallery via cocoa & hearts





all food prepared by my husband







hanging to the left is my 1st ever cocoa & hearts painting!!




gold love print via my shop made by girl

Hi Jen,
Love your home office. I wanted to share that I use many of your paintings as desktop backgrounds. And my coworkers often give great compliments on the pops of color.
The other day, someone said "Wow !".
Your paintings truly brighten up my day :) HOpe you paint more of the small ones as I want to put one up above my desk.

katieokeefeblog said...

Wow! What an incredible office space, and I really cannot get over how amazing the food your husband made looks!

Hi Jen, your office is sooo stylish and very tasteful, you have an amazing taste, or to be exact a talent for decorating spaces! Really really love how you did the paint brushes, they are colored in the same style technique as your paintings, so unique. Whos picture is in the center of your office - very beautiful woman.

Oooh, you have such a gift! I love it all, you always think of every last detail. And I am pretty sure I need one of your paintings in my life. I smile every time I stop by and see them.
