Installation, 1 year later by interior designer Amanda Burdge

Often times when I design a space, I try to design with the future in mind, and as many variables as possible. Design is an investment, and most people do not have the capability to do it over and over again. When I revisit a space that I have done, I am always pleased to see how it looks, and how it has been lived in, and used.

Doc Harr's office, 1 and a half later

Today I went to go see Dr. Harr. He had a little mishap with a painter, who may or may not have damaged a chair by completely falling on it and destroying it; but that is besides the point. The point is, it was an excuse to go see my favorite dentist, and his beautiful, and spectacular office designed by a wonderful and talented designer, MUWAH!

I was so very pleased to see the office, a little over a year later, looking fabulous. Everything was still in place, in tact, and perfect, just as I had planned it.

Nothing like revisiting a design in it's full glory seeing it functioning beautifully and looking fabulous. The space is comfortable, easy on the eyes, and a great introduction to a root canal! Ok, maybe not, but the space still looks fantastic, and I am pleased to say, the designer did an outstanding job!

  1. It is lovely...one certainly wants to feel comfortable waiting to see the dentist.

  2. looks really nice, AB! Good job.

  3. I know this is pessimistic but I have to say the waiting space is nicer than many homes. (not the ones you or I do, of course)

    I'm happy for you that you get to go back and still are in the moment. I love that too!

    Beats the heck out of my dentists office hands down.... great work!

  4. i love that the office looks so warm and inviting. a waiting room like this would instantly make me feel so relaxed upon entering, as opposed to nervous and on edge about . . . say, a root canal. great job, amanda!

  5. I wish my dentist's office looked like this. :)

  6. Gorgeous job! I am about to go to the dentist, I ought to bring my laptop and show them! XO!

  7. What a great space! When a place you've designed still looks great after a year ... you know you mastered form AND function!!

  8. You DID do a nice job! I especially like the way the curly spirals of the round stools echo the swirls in the throw rug and likewise the form of the anter lamp and the adjacent botanical print.

  9. There is nothing more satisfying that a follow up with a client that proves the design is still gorgeous!
