Help Design the New Polyvore Office



The Polyvore team needs help decorating our brand new office! We're moving into a big, old, warehouse-like space that could use some livening up.

We don't know much about interior design, but we know the Polvyore community does, as evidenced by the beautiful sets in the Interior Designers group.

So we're asking you, the Polyvore community, to send us your ideas. Create an interior design collage or mood board and submit it to the Polvore Office Design Challenge.

The top 12 sets will be featured on the Polyvore homepage and blog, and will be used as inspiration for our new office decor.

Please keep in mind the following constraints:

- Keep the price down! We're a startup working on a shoestring budget, so please use inexpensive furniture from places like Ikea.

- The walls have to be white. We can't repaint the walls to any other color, but we can decorate them with decals, posters, paintings, and screens.

- No cubes! We like to talk to each other and prefer an open layout.

Use your imagination and submit your sets here. Thanks for your help!

Office design these days seem to be more imaginative than it was back in the old days, especially with more people inclined to design.

If your office has a bathroom, I suggest you consider buying good quality bathroom tiles. There are a lot of them out there. You just have to choose what's best.

I would definitely submit my ideas. I love creating interior design mood boards, from bedroom to office spaces. This is a great way to express my creativity.

These are great office designs, very creative and innovative. Though I would like to add some details because if I were to design my own, I want it to be fully carpeted.

Ikea furniture is affordable so I think that you are right about giving that first instruction. I will try to create my own even if this contest is already done.

Hey, how was the contest? If I were to ask, I also agree with keeping the walls white so the colors of your furniture will be rich. I set up a mini office desk in my room and so far I'm also needing to declutter the space. Maybe the winning design here can help me before I order my furniture!

I wonder how the contest fell through. Considering how there are a lot of great furniture options to choose from these days, I bet it was quite the event.

Enjoyed reading those beautiful comments. It seems very useful and informative for us. Keep posting more wonderful thoughts.

Bright vibrant colours will always work well but don't get too carried away. I'd make sure there is plenty of light coming into the office too and try out some funky or vintage furniture.

In designing my own office I would definitely pick out stuff that looks more vibrant and that will inspire me while working. I love the white and blue themed design here, I'll definitely try it out with my own hub as well. Thanks for that good idea by the way!
