Part of the reason we love what we do here at the Emily McCarthy Shoppe so much is because we get to see others’ signature style come to life utilizing things we’ve developed and created. Gina Julian is a perfect example. All of the swooning will commence as soon as you click on this link to her blog: here.

First of all, can we mention how obsessed we are with the transformation of the office? Both are oozing with signature, clean yet daring, style – and they both show how multifaceted one person can be. The depth of style almost gives us chills, no joke!

As she’ll mention on the blog, she needed an update to her personal office. It received so much natural light, she wanted to brighten it up. The black screams “drama” and definitely made a clear statement.

When looking for a major transformation, it’s important to have a point of beginning. Gina chose our very own Multi Spot Cheetah wallpaper made exclusively by Cotton and Quill. (Available here) As we contain our squeals to have been utilized as inspiration, we love the direction she took. Her original mock-up had us dying to see more!

The pop of color on the ceiling was a brilliant move on her part. It tied the room together without being overpowering. We also love that she chose a simple, clean line light fixture to remain a focal point. Gold just goes with everything, doesn’t it? The final product proves that a picture is worth (easily) 1,000 words.

From dark, sexy, and dramatic to light, fun, and young. How have you used Emily McCarthy designs to change your space? We’d adore to see it!
