Design Project Tour: Chic and Badass Realtor’s Office
Some weeks, you spend more waking hours in your office than at home. Shouldn’t your office totally rock and be a space that supports and inspires your awesome work? I love designing offices because I’m a nerd who is obsessed with office supplies, plus I believe that a “corporate” space doesn’t have to suck.
Let’s go behind the scenes of one of Lesley Myrick Art + Design’s commercial interior design projects and take a tour of this chic and badass Realtor’s office in Waco, Texas. I’ve shared the progress and the after photos previously but dive a little deeper in today’s video:

Hey everyone, Lesley Myrick here.
I’m an interior stylist and owner of Lesley Myrick Art + Design where we create interiors with an offbeat edge.
So at Lesley Myrick Art + Design we mainly do residential design projects.
I love doing people’s houses. It’s been my goal since I was five years old to “make people’s houses pretty.”
But every once in a while…
a commercial project comes our way and they’re usually so much fun there’s no way I can say no.
We recently wrapped a project with a Realtor’s office here in Waco, Texas, and I want to walk you through the whole design from start to finish.
So you can see the space was a pretty big corporate snooze-fest. Bad ceilings, ugly carpet – the saving grace was the phenomenal walls of windows that this office had.
This Realtor loves turquoise and white,
and feminine, and brass, and just this fresh, pretty vibe and it was so much fun to get to translate her wishes into this space.
So, here’s a look at the Pinterest board where we started pulling together our ideas and selections. And here’s the moodboard to give you an idea of how all those pieces were going to work together in the space.
Doing these moodboards is one of my favorite things for clients because it really starts to give them a sense of proportion. How colors are going to fit together; the scale of furniture pieces; how all these sort of random items are actually going to flow in a room.
And what I love the most is..
seeing the moodboard and then – aaah! The final space.
Even though this is what I do, it is still so cool to me to see when my vision comes to life and looks how I planned it.
I think this office is so chic, and if I were a client of hers I would be so impressed working in this Realtor’s office. It’s fresh, it’s pretty, it’s professional, it’s sleek, it shows she has style and pizzazz – and that’s exactly what we were going for.
Plus – there’s a bar. You can’t argue with having a bar in an office.
This is just one of many design projects that we’ve been working on.
I love what I do and I’d love to do it for you too.
If you’ve been needing an expert eye to guide you through a design project or if you’re just feeling stuck, I would love to talk to you.
