office envy: the seattle space of 95 yesler

Image

sometimes, when i’m having a really rough time at work, i daydream about quitting my day job, and doing my own thing. you know, writing for this here blog (which currently has under 200 readers, let’s be real), writing copy for companies that actually matter, and baking up a storm in my spare time. and on those days, i dream of an office that looks pretty darn close to this one – 95 yesler, which belongs to a group of inspiring seattle creatives, including brian paquette and cassandra lavalle (who pens one of my favorite blogs, coco+kelley).

for starters, let’s talk about that insane coffered ceiling. the architectural detail in the space is positively stunning. i mean, hi, those windows are INSANE. the all white palate really lets the historical beauty of the building shine, and the abundance of natural light helps to hammer those details home.

how cute is their holiday tree? i think if i were to celebrate christmas, i’d getย really into tree decorating. and christmas cookie baking, of course. ain’t nothing like the holiday spirit to get a girl in the groove. also, let’s talk about that chair peeking out of the side of the frame. you can see the set more clearly in the image below. they’re a vintage find scored in seattle, and i am positively in LOVE. they make the space. brass and velvet beauties, be still my heart.

how insane is the light in this photo? those windows are just incredible. i can’t imagine it would be possible to feel frustrated in a space this gorgeous.

gosh, i am in love. what i would give for an office like this (god bless corporate america). hey, at least i have open seating, right?
