Home Office

2020 inspired these homeowners to convert a spare bedroom into a home office. While the short commute down the hall each morning may be nice, the work/life balance was becoming harder to delineate. Having a dedicated and purposeful work space does wonders for productivity.

Floor to ceiling windows and troublesome door placement make this room tricky to use as a bedroom, but perfect for a well-lit office. Swapping the original hinged closet door with a sliding door not only saves floor space, but allows for more symmetrical furniture placement. Inspired by the midcentury era, the bold green on the walls pairs perfectly with the refinished walnut desk, antique leather wingback chair, and statement area rug. Picture frame molding on the walls is a simple way to add dimension and detail. A full wall of open shelving provides function and style.
