Gasser Foundation contacted FBD with a request to help update their existing office in Napa, California. Prior to the facelift that FBD provided for this space, the walls were covered in a dated wood paneling and the suite was in need of a fresh look. Paula and Ashley worked to develop a sophisticated, modern color palette and proposed smoothing and painting the paneled walls to brighten up the space and make it more inviting.

FBD put together a furniture layout to increase the work flow and provide staff more break out areas to meet and mingle. With the furniture selections, Paula and Ashley opted to create interest through mixed textures and materials. Additionally, FBD selected and created installation plans for the new pendant lighting in both the conference and break rooms. Now that the space is completed Gasser has reported that their requests and bookings for the updated conference room have been constant and everyone is enjoying the space.

Paula's Project Thoughts...

We were contacted by Mitch Wippern and Nancy Watt, both past clients from the County of Napa, previously in management positions there. They had retired from Napa County and were working with The Gasser Foundation, a non-profit that helps Napa County residents get back on their feet with scholarships to school and donations for housing. The offices were dated and oppressive. We updated the interiors to create a light welcoming environment that represents the true spirit of the non-profit it houses.
