About Olive Juice

This is a journal of sorts of our ideas (as the design goddesses that we are) that don't necessarily get executed and instead just live in our heads. Punctuated of course with things we just plain love, covet, or if you will..."Olive Juice".

Now Why Do You Suppose SHE Needs an Office?...

…she doesn’t really work at a desk, does she?

No matter. I love it. When Khloe Kardashian moved into her new house, she turned to LA interior designer Jeff Andrews (there is some sort of Ryan Seacrest, we both have shows on E! connection there) to help her design her new digs. I was particularly drawn to her office with its sophisticated and old Hollywood glam vibe.

I am loving the glitz of the mirrored desk. And if you look closely, the back of the display shelves are actually lined will mirrors as well. I love the way that the mirrors’ reflections play off the rich colored walls. The wall paint is a deep shade of gray/lavender (Benjamin Moore – Stone) and the ceiling is actually a lighter shade of lavender (Benjamin Moore – Angelika).

According to Andrews, the guest chairs “are vintage chairs Khloe owned but didn’t love. Rather than be wasteful, I found two great fabrics, one with subtle sparkle and one solid, and reupholstered the chairs”.

I think it’s the fabulous charcoal / purple sheers that filter light and really up the "glam factor" of this room. Most people probably need more light in their offices to actually see what they are working on. But as mentioned above, I don’t believe that she has the type of job that necessitates and office, so light limiting sheers work out great!

VERY old Hollywood glam if you ask me!
