I recently attended an event at Cuyana in SF and while I love their products, I’m obsessed with their offices. Devotees know and love Cuyana for its simplicity, craftmanship, and style and their offices follow in that same vein. Conceptualized by SF interior designer, Lauren Nelson, their offices evoke a sense of minimalistic boldness that you can’t help but covet.

The moment I walked into their lounge, I was hooked. It effortlessly mixes mid-century modern staples with more exotic, old-world pieces like the vintage maroon runner and neutral cowhide.

I love how this nook features a simple gallery wall — rule of three people — and a touch of green to keep everything lively. See below for tips on how to recreate the look at home, regardless of your budget!

Right now I’m obsessing over crisp white cabinetry and countertops paired with matte gold accents. Keep reading for a peek at the mood board, floor plan, and tips on how to create the look at home.
I’m a firm believer that your home and it’s design — especially it’s design — can have a huge impact on your mood. A clean, beautiful room just makes you happy, it’s science.
