Khloe Kardashian's old Home Office home with Lamar Odom 2
Kardashian home office pre Odom split

 

So I’ll admit I have indulged in a couple of episodes of Keeping up with the Kardashians on occasion (Don’t judge me).  Khloe generally amuses me, as she always seemed the most perplexed by sister Kim’s ridiculous rise to fame as well as disgusted by her delusions of grandeur. Khole was our inside man. Saying the things the general public were saying and wondering but from inside the Kardashian household.

One thing I noticed… wait a minute. I sense judgment. Now you can’t really appreciate where I’m going with this if you’re judging are you? Now stay with me. Okay, so one thing I noticed is that I really enjoyed their style. I’m not talking clothing. I’m talking interior design.  A girly girl like me can definitely appreciate the Kardashian's love of all things glam.  As to be expected Kris Jenner is all about the glam and so is daughter Kim Kardashian. Kortney is a bit more partial to the warm family feel but her home décor choices are still very chic. The surprise is Khloe, the down-to-earth Kardashian. I wouldn’t have expected for her design choices to be quite so elegant.

When I first got a glimpse of her home with Lamar Odom I fell head over heels over the grand entrance and stair case. The second thing to capture my heart was Khloe’s fabulous home office space. A large mirrored desk sat in the center of the room with other mirrored elements like a small coffee table and bookshelf with mirrored backing. A clear and black chandelier provides sparkle right above the desk and provides a great ambience with the light bouncing off the mirrors perfectly.

Since her split from Lamar Odom, Khloe’s moved into her new pad and moved her office décor right along with her. The room pretty much has the same feel but I actually prefer the original version. Although I do love the tray ceilings in version two, the first room seemed to have much more natural light and I prefer the darker color on the walls.

For the fans of Khole’s glam office (admittedly or not), I’ve compiled some sweet finds to help you re-create the look.

French Expressions Paris themed home office design and decor

I love the idea of a Paris inspired home office design. On any given day I could totally see myself gallivanting through Paris, France, taking in the sights and partaking in some glorious shopping; Designer bags in one hand and a croissant in the other.

For those of us who can't afford to live a life like the one I described above, there's always the idea of surrounding yourself with design inspired by the land of romance and transporting your self there mentally.

Here are a couple of great finds for transforming your home office into a whimsical Parisian playground.

Anna Wintours Office at Vouge from 73 Questions with Anna Wintour

Vogue® has a running video series entitled 73 questions where it captures in a single shot, a rapid-fire question interview of notable personalities. Past subjects have included Sarah Jessica Parker,  Olivia Munn, Blake Lively,  Daniel Radcliffe, Reese Witherspoon, and today’s blog Subject Anna Wintour. I decided to check out Anna’s video to learn a little more about her but what I found surprisingly interesting was the inside of her office.

It’s not particularly beautiful and is sort of a hodgepodge of different styles and pieces. Not what I expected from a BOSS of her caliber but interesting nonetheless.  Apparently, when it comes to décor, Anna is more of a shabby-chic than all out chic. I’m not a fan of shabby-chic but just in case any of readers are, this might be something you get some inspiration from.

Anna Wintour vs Miranda Priestly's office

Anna used to have a mirror hanging on a wall next to her desk but I think she might have changed things up a little since the movie Devil Wears Prada mimicked her style almost perfectly. I liked the mirror so you can find a similar one along with other items  similar to the ones found in her office below.

Kimora mock office option2

So I was inspired by this photo of Kimora Lee Simmons standing in what is presumably her office at JustFab headquarters in California where she serves as the fashion e-tailer’s president and Creative Director.  I created this mock up with pieces I might put together if I were to mimic this look in real life.

Who says your workplace has to be drab and stuffy? We spend so much of our lives at work that it only makes sense that our workspaces be a reflection of our personalities. The spaces we work in should be inviting, inspiring and comfortable.  After all, this is ground zero for all your future power moves.

Not sure how to decorate your space? Loosen up your collar, let down the hair a little and really make the space your own. Incorporate visual cues that speak towards your unique personality and style.
