Office Design and Vanessa De Vargas and Turquoise

Designing your office can be one of the most important rooms you can design, since most of us spend a good amount of our time in an office environment. I am so excited to introduce Vanessa De Vargas of Turquoise who shares office design tips in today's Monday designer interview. She is such a talented designer with an incredible eye for color, texture, and materials.

LAMPS PLUS: I love all your office designs! How is designing an office different from designing other spaces?
