Citrus Studios Mavens TV loft office decor styled by Erika Brechtel

A contemporary loft space in Santa Monica needs a little “dressing up?” Sign me up!

Client Citrus Studios owner (and my Mavens TV partner!) Kalika Yap asked me to help her upgrade her office decor…before Monday. She’s got an exciting video shoot, and although she has her current furniture pieces in there, she wants to take it up a notch. I’m in!

Her previous office was featured on the Glitter Guide last year; we’ll be repurposing the white office furniture, and yellow/orange accents. I wanted to bring some earthy texture into the pop mod, with some black, brown, and global influences — going for a slightly more sophisticated, “Maven”-y feminine feel…

Stay tuned for the final product! Until then, my inspiration board picks:

Haeli rug, magenta / Mavek chairs, pair / modern leather Chesterfield loveseat / white floral ‘Sonia’ metal drum / pillows (L to R): striped angled crewel pillow cover (Poppy) / ‘Rita’ African mudcloth pillow / ‘Dotty’ pillow, tangerine /  Trina Turk ‘Ladera’ embroidered pillow / Trina Turk vintage weave Bargello pillow / black sari patchwork lumbar pillow / ‘Pattern in the Sky’ art print
