How a MAJOR Fashion Blogger Decorates Her Office

Earlier this week, Leandra Medine, the fierce entrepreneur behind Man Repeller, took to the streets of NoLIta to announce her arrival to the neighborhood and turn a few unsuspecting neighbors into new friends. In her latest hilarious on-camera appearance, she also announced the location of the new Man Repeller headquarters, the space where her growing team of 15 is busy taking over the fashion world, one smartly articulated but comical story at a time. 

Man Repeller is no longer just the fashion blog it once was. Over the years, Medine transformed the brand into a leading destination for millennial women everywhere, with topics ranging from drinking collagen to the war between print and digital media. Naturally a dynamic team of young witty and sartorially inclined writers and editors would need a fashion-forward office to match—a cross between a startup office and a cabana in Formentera. Medine did, after all, bring back trends like ruffled pants and bikini tops as shirts.

To help with the décor of such a wanderlust-worthy space, Medine called on the help of Elisa Shankle, interior designer at Homepolish, and partnered with AllModern to transform a bleak downtown space into a coastal Italian hideaway–meets–office space. We chatted with the two women about the space—take the tour, and inspire your own escapist office.
