Today, I want to share our home office with you. It is one of my favorite rooms in our home. Located just off the foyer prior to arriving at the dining room, this flexible space offers our family a room for everything from daily computer activities to the annual Christmas present wrapping station. A couple of details you may notice: I had the builder paint the doors a rich black, otherwise they would be the traditional “builder white.” Additionally, right after we moved in I changed out the stock light fixture and replaced it with a gilded gold hanging fixture. These two changes set the stage for the room’s personality. It offers a boldness and a touch of masculinity which is offset and complimented by some details which I would love to point out.
The desk is the star of the room. It is large enough for the space yet not too overbearing. Essentially, it fits the space perfectly. It is complimented by a large chair which is needed to soften the space. With the floor and desk being composed of wood, the chair’s gray linen fabric works perfectly in this space.
Perhaps you noticed the brass handles on the desk. The light fixture’s color and material pull this subtle detail from the desk.
The home office had the option for a built-in book case. Rather than opt for that through the builder, I found this incredibly beautiful and functional cabinet which I felt reflected the design personality of this room. Notice the details of the elongated handles?
Behind the desk and framing the windows, you will notice a pair of vintage chipped paint shutters, complete with original hardware.
