TURNING AN OFFICE SPACE INTO A DESIGN STUDIO - ROCKLIN CA

TURNING AN OFFICE SPACE INTO A DESIGN STUDIO - ROCKLIN CA

It’s official! TAMI FAULKNER DESIGN is getting a new studio in the Historic Quarry District, across the street from Quarry Park in Rocklin CA. We’ll be expanding our services to the greater Roseville / Rocklin, and Folsom areas. Even so we'll continue to serve clients in Butte, Sutter and Yuba Counties, mixed in with out-of-state projects as well.

THE LITTLE BLUE BUILDING

Soon this little blue, stand-alone building will be transformed from an office space to a creative studio. When I first came across the listing, I got excited about all the simple changes that could be made to improve it's curb appeal. 

CURB-SIDE APPEAL CHANGES:

  • Fresh new paint - siding and trim
  • New exterior doors - with painted accent color
  • New door hardware
  • Repair damaged window trims at front of building
  • Replace exterior lighting
  • Trim trees
  • Freshen-up landscape
  • Add bark to planting areas
  • Include signage
  • Potted plants and new door mats
  • Window boxes

PAINT INSPIRATION

It took me no time at all to decide to paint both the siding and trim white, but the paint color for the new doors (that will have 3/4 clear glass, a 10" bottom rail, and recessed bottom panel) is still up for grabs. Here's some favorite inspiration photos that have me thinking.

I've narrowed my color choices for the exterior doors down to:

  • Blush
  • Light Blue
  • Dark Blue
  • Gray
  • Black

DESIGN STUDIO OPENING IN JULY

Check back soon to see the little blue building's new facelift - and if you live in the area, how about taking a drive, or stroll along Rocklin Road to see it transform in person.

Cheers!
