Great interior design can turn any workplace into a showcase. From large corporate offices to small mom-and-pop storefronts, whatever the tone that proprietors desire for their office space, professional interior designers can turn ideas into reality. Here are the Nebraska/Iowa Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers’ 2018 commercial winners of the chapter’s annual design contest, impactFULL.

Bold patterns in neutral colors provide a stunning backdrop layered in pops of “wow” colors and space full of textures: planked wood walls, wall coverings, mixed flooring patterns, and 3D wall panels just to name a few. The sight lines were crucial, and the designers carefully studied and designed each one.

The design solutions implemented into the space have created an open and inviting clubhouse space for the tenants to enjoy and use on a daily basis. The concept was to create a “contemporary coastal” design while still appealing to the Nebraska residents. The design solution was met by creating a neutral base color pallet with shades of grays, white, and blues layered with persimmon and teal. Gold accents were then added with the use of a dimensional wall panel behind the TV, cabinet hardware, lighting, and accessories.
