To start, I want to say that this little space is really special to both of us. After working from home for a year in a desk that was directly next to my bed, I was feeling really unmotivated, discouraged, and just kind of lonely working for myself. Alex had asked me if I would ever be interested in finding an office space in Chicago but having just started a business my mindset was save, save, save. However, a year later Alex approached me again and I decided that it would only be beneficial to me, my work, and my brand if I found a new way to get inspired that wasn’t in my bedroom {plus, Dave was moving in and he works from home too, I knew that working together was not going to be an option}. Creative spaces are few and far between in Chicago. Aside from the Merchandise Mart and a few buildings in the West Loop, we knew that there weren’t many options for a shared space in the neighborhood we wanted so Alex set out to find a small place to call our own. We had a tight budget and knew that it would be tough to find an office space that works for both of us in an expensive city but we kept our fingers crossed and this little gem basically fell into our laps {thanks to a good realtor friend!}. It took 5 months to finalize everything {commercial leases are no joke} but we finally moved into our office and very slowly began to build a place that inspires us. Over a year and a half later we finally got our shit together and here we are! A space that makes us want to come to work everyday, that allows us to brainstorm new ideas, bounce ideas off each other, and that makes us happy – the ultimate gift. Alex was the brains behind it all and I absolutely love how everything turned out. Thanks for the feature GG!

  1. I saw this yesterday and I just love y’alls office! So modern, chic and pops of color and print! Some serious office inspiration.

  2. Love this!! So fun & pretty. From where did the cube shelving and baskets come? I need!

  3. Beautiful space! Of course I love the two things you didn’t post links to! Can you please share where the two wicker baskets are from (in the Ikea cube organizer), and where I can order myself one of those “You can’t sit with us” mugs? Love it!

  4. Hey Liz! I’d seen your Instagram’s of your office before and was SO intrigued! This is so amazing and chic; love, love, love it! So fun to work with a bestie!

  5. Your office space is just perfect! I’ll be needing an office space in the city in just a few months and just talked to a friend about splitting a space! I’m wondering if there’s anything out there that’s dog friendly too 🙂

  6. Hi! I love your office decor! Would you share where did you buy or created the painting/photo in 3 pieces you have? I think it is photo #11 and looks like it is from Capri.

  7. your office space is gorgeous and obv so inspiring. I can see why you can come up with such great content in a space like this. working from home is tough… congrats on the feature!


  8. Such a chic space! You both look so at home there, but not in a working in pj’s with interruptions kind of way 🙂

    Best of luck!

  9. I loves seeing your office space on GG! It’s adorable and so happy and cheery. The perfect work environment but I think what made it so great was that you get to bounce ideas off of your friend!
