DIY Decor: Office Makeover

Hi everyone!!
Last Sunday some of you guys saw me on Instagram drawing on a wall. Yes I know that sounds weird ;) I couldn't wait to show you the final result!!

So here's how this crazy project started: A few weeks ago, the guys from Crows & Dogs asked to give them a hand in their office decoration. They're a young (and amazingly talented) group of entrepreneurs who created their own creative digital agency a year ago in Barcelona. Since then, they've launched super cool projects such as Topic, a social network in which you can follow the subjects you like instead of following people. 

They are struggling to raise their company, so everything had to be DIY and low cost. We had to use our inventiveness! You don't have everyday the chance of doing something different and creative (nor you have a blank wall to paint whatever you like). So I instantly said yes!! The process was exhausting, but I had so much fun. ¡Hope you guys enjoy the video!

Previous draft of our virtual kitchen =D
For the meeting room we decided to wallpaper the main wall (the one you see from the door, that makes the first impression) with international newspaper sheets. We used wallpapering glue and applied a few layers of paper. As we combined different sizes, languages and directions, we got a very interesting effect. On the next wall we painted some fake frames to keep up with the idea of the trompe l'oeil we did in the kitchen. However, the frames are still in process. We'd like to fill them up to get something similar to this. But it will take time...
What do you guys think? What's your favorite part of this Office Makeover?

  6. Fantastic! That’s probably one of the most creative designs I’ve ever seen. With dash of creativity and a bit of time, you've made your office look a lot livelier! And I'm sure you saved a lot by doing it yourself, rather than having it professionally redecorated. Hats off to your DIY skills and drawings! Cheers!
