Pops of modernism and lacquered blue show Rajni Alex’s clients that risks can be rewarding.
What was your old space like and why did it need an update?
I was working from home and business expanded. This space was a regular office but had beautiful glass windows and high ceilings. I wanted clients to walk in and have a “wow” moment.
What does this office say to your clients?
We went bold with the colors and included a high-gloss lacquered trim. Sometimes clients are hesitant to use bold color, but this shows it can be tempered and tasteful. It’s a dance.
How does this space inspire you?
It feels like an amazing Tribeca loft, not like you’re going into work. It inspires me every day. It feels like home.
What’s your favorite part about this design?
I love the blue accents, and there’s a great Phillip Jeffries wallpaper that looks like it’s covered with black nail-heads. But my favorite thing is the Arteriors chandelier in the entryway.
