Interior designer Victoria Moronta believes your home is your sanctuary and her work reflects her clients’ passions and their daily needs. She recently created three mood boards that incorporate ClosetMaid products along with other furniture and accessories. We asked her about her inspired interior design ideas and how anyone can replicate them to suit their style.
A coastal feel doesn’t have to be literal. Moronta designed this beachy office in dusty blues and crisp whites – without a shell in sight!
“The look can easily be achieved with a simple piece of artwork that reminds you of the ocean and corresponding colors throughout the room,” she says.
Moronta carefully selected all the pieces to achieve the result she wanted. “I love the clean lines of the modular desk. It works really well with the overall calming coastal design,” she explains. “The sandy-colored cubes remind me of the beach!”
If you’re ready to redecorate your office like this but you want to make a few tweaks, Moronta has some suggestions. You can brighten up the space by swapping out the gray rug for a blue and beige one. For a more beach-like feel, prop artwork that evokes the coast on the floating ledge wall shelves.
Whether it’s your first place or you’re just hungry for a change, decorating your apartment can be fun and challenging.
Moronta advises starting by choosing a color scheme that works best with the existing floor and wall colors if you’re unable to change them. Also consider the lighting in the apartment. Then choose a large piece, a statement rug or a large sofa and work from there.
“I always like mixing color in with decor like artwork, rugs – items that are easy to change when you grow tired of them,” Moronta says.
For instance, in this apartment design, the rug and artwork can be easily swapped for a bohemian-patterned rug and bold artwork with gold frames, shifting this room from modern industrial to boho.
When decorating shelves, make sure you’re using pieces that coordinate with the room colors and that can be easily updated to match the season. One way to do this is to fill a vase with spruce branches for the winter months and replace the branches for wildflowers in the spring. Don’t be afraid to get creative!Shop storage furniture
We spend a large proportion of our weekdays in our offices. Why not make yours inspiring and functional?
For this office design, Moronta says she was inspired to pull together items that allow for an easy-to-personalize space. “I know sometimes that’s difficult to do with offices,” she acknowledges. “With the use of the floating ledge wall shelves and the wall-mount organizer, there’s plenty of space to add framed artwork, inspirational quotes, family pictures or to display your diploma.”
Do you like the general idea of Moronta’s office design but not the tones? With a couple of simple alterations, you can brighten the space. The 19-inch floating ledge wall shelf also comes in white, and the premium drawers are available in several colors, allowing you to match your office with your personality.
