Kelly needed a productive space the reflected her funny, smart and stylish personality.
Written by Orlando Soria
When we found out we were going to design an office space for Kelly Oxford, we were pretty stoked. A genius writer whose hilarious twitter feed launched her to stardom, she is now officially a NYT bestselling author with her awesome book called Everything is Perfect When You’re a Liar. Needing an inviting, comfortable and stylish office, our LA Creative Director Orlando Soria designed the space to be a reflection of her comedic, literary personality by referencing the workspaces of some of her favorite literary heroes for inspiration. The home offices of Joan Didion, Roald Dahl, and Agatha Christie were all brilliant inspiration fodder.
Wanting the space to have a dash of vintage flavor, Kelly chose Antigua Aqua by Benjamin Moore for the wall color and Handybook helped us out with booking a painter to get the job done. A vintage mid-century sofa from Krrb gives the space a 60’s literati sensibility and the rest of the furnishings came from AllModern and flea markets. When we asked her what her favorite part of the design was she responded, “Every piece makes it better. I love everything. It’s so cohesive. I’m a parent, though, so I don’t pick favorites.” Definitely the best answer we could have asked for.
