What is your space used for?
roar is a creative office and event space. We want to bring creative professionals together to collaborate on projects and ideas, and having a space that is so adaptable makes events and pop-up markets another great opportunity that can take place here.
How would you describe the decor in your space?
The architecture of the space is very traditional, so for the decor we used a blend of contemporary and vintage pieces to tie everything together.
What was your inspiration behind your decor?
My inspiration behind the decor was to create a space that would inspire creativity and is easily transformable.
What are some of your favorite places to purchase decor items?
Anthropologie, Quintessentials, Lusso and Home Goods.
What is your favorite part of the space and why?
My favorite space is the bathroom. It was a space that had outdated finishes and we transformed it on no budget to a really fun space. We used old blueprints as wallpaper, painted the floor and used vintage accessories.
Do you have a favorite individual piece of furniture or art in the space? Why is it so special?
I love all the custom work by Robert Karleskint of Anew Nature. Our large conference work table is made to withstand all kinds of abuse but is so beautiful. And the coffee table is a work of art, it looks like the edge of a cliff.
