Mandy Moore’s office reveal

Mandy Moore's production company office at Paramount Studios // sarah sherman samuel

Mandy Moore just started her own production company and the office space she leased at Paramount Studios was a little sad (if you missed my first post, jump here to see what we started with), so I was thrilled when she enlisted me to help her “give it a vibe”. A vibe we gave her, and while it’s a bit more bold than what we did in her house, it still shares a similar palette of blush, ochre, blues, a lot of white and warm wood tones, and you’ll see a similar thread of vintage, mixed with custom pieces, mixed with traditional retail goods. It leans more post-modern, than her mid-mod home and even has a bit of pop culture mixed in. It was a great opportunity to have a bit more fun in her workspace as we would hope it would energize and inspire her during the day and then she can wind down in her serene oasis of a home at night. SO without further ado… here she is!

Mandy Moore’s Office at Paramount

Have you guys heard?! Mandy Moore started her own production company and we are taking her new offices at Paramount Studios from dreary corporate to a creative space that we will all want to hang in. We had so much fun designing her house, so I was thrilled to work together again on her latest venture. Also, workspaces happen to be a favorite of mine to design and have I mentioned Mandy is a dream client to work with? 

We are SO close to the full reveal, but in the meantime, I’m taking you on a little behind the scenes of the design process and sharing some tips to getting that high end look on a more high/low budget as well as how to make a big difference without renovating for all you renters out there.

Being a new company, Mandy doesn’t know how long they will be in the current space, there is always the chance she could outgrow it or not, it is all very new. So, while she wanted it to be a reflection of her and an incredible space to be in, she also wanted to do it cost effectively. The plan was to Invest in some pieces that she could take with her if they move while also finding affordable options that make a big impact for the current space.  The result is a unique mix of high and low, color play, layered patterns, vintage details and rich textures and I turned to sources like Amazon Home to make it happen.

Let’s take a peek into what the offices looked like with the existing furniture she inherited.

Mandy Moore Guest Bedroom Tour

I already shared a peek into this guest bedroom from Mandy Moore’s house a while back, but we were missing some final touches like the art and mirror so I’m happy to share the photos of the finished space! It’s light and inviting, mostly neutral but with just a touch of blush and a pop of cranberry. Bold brass geometric accents like the nightstands, sconces and mirror are balanced out by the natural wood on the bed and dresser, as well as the textures of the layered cream bedding. It ticks all the guest room boxes.

Moore Residence – Arch Digest Cover Story!

mandy moore architectural digest cover If you’ve been following along on the progress with our Moore Residence project over here you know I went radio silent for a while and by now you might have figured out why. I couldn’t be more thrilled about the reason being our project made the cover of Architectural Digest! Mandy, the pups, our custom built-in sofa, terrazzo floors, and all… right there on the cover.

To say this project has been a favorite would be an understatement. The house itself (a complete gut renovation of an original mid-century Harold B. Zook), the clients (Mandy and Taylor were incredible from day one… thoughtful, involved, and generous, giving us basically cart blanche) and the whole team from from construction to the final shoot. There wasn’t one bad apple in the bunch. And the result… I couldn’t help but share a few of my favorites from the feature.

Mandy Moore’s Laundry Room

You guys… I’ve been waiting for this day to come for over a year now! Today is the day I get to share the first finished space of the Moore house, and while you might think the laundry room might be a funny place to start, just wait until you see how gorgeous this laundry room is! Electrolux helped Emily Farnham and I make some magic happen in this space. Also, we’ve waited so long for the full house reveal why not build a little more suspense. ;)

Mandy Moore's laundry room reveal // sarah sherman samuelRaise your hand if you also want to live in Mandy Moore’s laundry room?

Just after Mandy purchased the home, we did our first walk-through together and the laundry room was one of a few sad spaces in the once incredible Harold B. Zook designed mid-century modern home. The house was renovated in the early 90’s with clashing traditional features like crown moulding and raised panel cupboards (like you will see in the laundry before photos) and Emily and I worked together to bring the house into this century while keeping in mind it’s mid-century past. The former laundry room was cramped and bare bones basic. It had white walls, white cabinets and your average run of the mill 12×12 floor tile.

Mandy Moore's laundry room reveal // sarah sherman samuelMandy actually loves doing laundry, so we wanted to make the room a place she would want to spend some time in and it is right off the kitchen so all the more reason to make it a statement all on its own. She had a few requirements… one was a place to be able to hang dry clothing, another was a good amount of space for folding, and the third was to make it beautiful. I also added to the must have list, closed storage, a statement wallpaper, and a sink.

Mandy Moore's laundry room reveal // sarah sherman samuel We found the perfect slim sink and black shower rods that we repurposed as a place for Mandy and Taylor to hang dry items. The matte black version of the hardware I designed for Park Studio (Mandy got the very first black prototypes!) and the faucet add to the wallpaper to create the bold graphic look.

And now to remind you what was there before…

Immediately we knew we wanted to swap the sink and laundry machine’s locations and make the space bigger so we borrowed about a foot of space from the pantry on the other side, by moving the wall over, which made a world of difference (insert me for scale. ha). Now there is ample counter space for folding, room to maneuver and the Electrolux machines have their custom cubbies to take center stage while blending seamlessly with the design. They even match the room’s color palette perfectly. And aside from being clean and modern looking I know Mandy is excited about having her clothes and linens Electrolux clean.

Mandy and I are going to be doing a Facebook Live on the Electrolux channel June 5! at 8 p.m. CT (6 p.m. PST) so be sure to tune in TONIGHT!

Mandy Moore Guest Room Peek

mandy moore guest room peek // sarah sherman samuelLast week I shared the design of one of the guest rooms in the Mandy Moore residential project and today I am stoked to give you a sneak peek into the almost finished space! I teamed up with Brooklinen to give Mandy a guest room that ticks all the luxurious boxes of a boutique hotel without breaking the bank on the bedding.

Most of the rooms I design have a mix of high and low and this room is no exception, although the balance here weighs much more on the high end, we still managed to utilize a couple big box items as well.
