WFH Goals: Get Inspired by Sorellina’s NYC Office Decor



If you’re working from home these days, you’re probably looking at your space with a critical eye, noticing cracks in the paint, windows that need cleaning, items you might buy to make the space feel happier, calmer, cozier, more conducive to productivity—whatever qualities you’d like to inject into your surroundings.

As so many of us are cooped up in some sort of confining environment, the walls of your home office (makeshift or permanent) are a great place to start your refresh (real or imagined).

The first time I saw Sorellina’s office, housed a tiny corner of the larger For Future Reference midtown Manhattan showroom, it made quite an impression. Because the wallpaper, with its panoply of faceted gems in every imaginable shape and cut, was so impactful—and the supersize scale of the pattern applied to such a small space was as extra as it gets.

What better place to hold sales meetings? I absolutely loved it, and buyers probably do, too.

I later learned that the wallpaper was from a company called Flavor Paper, a prestigious artisan operation based in Brooklyn, N.Y., which has some of its designs in the permanent collections at the Smithsonian’s Cooper Hewitt Design Museum and the Brooklyn Museum.

Co-owner Nicole Carosella worked with the Flavor Paper team to customize an existing pattern known as Sparklepuss designed by New Orleans artist Ashley Longshore.

“We are very affected by our surroundings,” says Sorellina co-owner Kim Carosella (she and Nicole are sisters and founded their brand in 2012). “Even though our office is quite small, it was imperative that we bring something colorful and bold into the space that also had a hint of magic.”

“It provides endless inspiration for our designs and creations,” adds Nicole.

Including Sorellina’s new spring collection—a few highlights of which are shown below.
