Office Space

While browsing through one of my favorite websites/magazines, Traditional Home , I came across photos of make up artist, Bobbi Brown’s office. The saying ‘everything happens for a reason’ rings true for Brown, as she wouldn’t have this gorgeous space, had fire not ruined her Soho office in Manhattan. Bobbi along with her husband, developer, Steven Plofker designed this gorgeous space in New Jersey.

“The combination of old and new is like wearing jeans with holes and gorgeous fancy shoes,” says Bobbi. “The overall effect is a fun, exploratory space that’s totally creative.” Bobbi Brown”

The combination of old and new [in her studio] is like wearing jeans with holes and gorgeous fancy shoes," says Bobbi. "The overall effect is a fun, exploratory space that's totally creative." Bobbi Brown

A tiny garden outside the office serves as a great way for employees to relax. Another perk would be the stylist, manicurist and office snacks, Brown provides for her employees.
