I’m gonna tell you right now: this is going to be an ugly post. All brown, grey and dismal, and the photos aren’t even good. BUT: Deluxemodern is going to have an all new design studio very soon, and we’re pretty dang excited about it. I started to write a whole long post with lots of details, but for right now we’re going to give you the info quick and dirty (and I mean with spiderwebs, dust, and all).
Here it is: Deluxemodern is moving into a new studio. The space is a home office, in a separate building. It’s basically a garage / storage unit, but it’s a great size with lofty ceilings. We have played “musical offices” (like musical chairs) over the past few years and it’s getting old. We wanted to be close to home (kids) but have a beautiful, professional space to work from – away from laundry and other distracting house stuff. So, we’ve decided to give this space a head-to-toe makeover and have the best of both worlds. So, first things first: It’s going to have a PINK FLOOR! This wasn’t something I thought would be possible, but when my husband mentioned we could tint cement paint any color we wanted, well: done & done. I’m trying to choose a color that matches my Ted Baker bag (you can see a photo here) an icy, glossy pink. We plan to hold photo shoots and start shooting some video classes to go along with new products coming to the Dear Miss Modern Shop. Bright white walls & pink floors. Yes. We are also thrilled beyond measure to announce a partnership with Wayfair.com on this project, and are over the moon that the final reveal will be featured in Rue Magazine! (dreamy, right)? We will be updating this whole shindig on social media, and hitting the milestones on the blog, so make sure you’re following us everywhere by clicking here.
FLOOR COLOR IDEAS (starting with a pretty picture at least).
These are a few gritty before photos… it already looks so different with just the insulation, and check out that new window. I’ll be eye-level with the pool while sitting at my desk (making it hard to work, no?)
We would love to hear your thoughts, and if you have any any fun decorating ideas we’d love to hear those too! We will be posting the whole thing here and throughout social media – we love a good before and after project!

This was our order from Wayfair. Gorgeous, right?
The perfect pink paint. But really.
