Prepare to be jealous. Alyson Seligman from "The Average Girl's Guide" blog was able to get Nate Berkus to give her company's office an amazing makeover.
Alyson works for a public relations and marketing firm and was seriously sick of walking into such a, as Seligman put it, "sad" entryway every day. So, she did what any normal gal would do and be begged Target through her existing relationship as a member of its new Target Inner Circle, until she finally got Berkus to give design tips and advice. "A space like this, just like a home entry, is the first impression a person will get of your space, in this case your company, and what it stands for. It’s a missed opportunity the way it is now," Berkus told her.
Finally, he recommended changing what he considered "immature" light blue walls for a more sophisticated green/grey color. He also suggested taking the drab coffee station and really accessorize it with modern accessories. The cool furniture, pretty plants, clever cork boards, and help from interior designer friend Brianna Bernstein, really made this place a happy one to be all week.
