Custom Home Office Before and After

Custom Home Office

An open landing is often underutilized space in a home.  Sometimes people add a rug and a chair to fill it, but often clients don’t take full advantage of its potential.

This empty space sits just outside a master bedroom and features a gorgeous window with a view.  It was the perfect place for a small home office.

Make an Impact

We warmed up the space with a rug, soft lamps, drapery, and a big piece of art. Floating the desk in the center of the room allows our client to look out the window while she works.  Because the desk chair will be seen from the stairwell, we made sure to pick something with a gorgeous back.

Overcoming Challenges

The angled ceiling in this home office made drapery a bit of a design challenge that we solved with these small posts rather than a straight rod.  Using this design highlights the ceiling height without unnecessarily blocking light from the window.

Keep It Functional

We like to design homes for real life meaning that they are more than just pretty! This writing desk is the perfect home to a laptop or a place to sit down with a notebook and pen keeping all of our client’s home-office things in one place.

No Detail Too Small

All of the details were thought through down to the colors of the books on display.  The final touches to a room (often art and accessories) really make a space feel thought out. In this home office, we chose simple and clean accessories.

Inspiration, Specials & More
Lisa’s help on our major kitchen/family room renovation was invaluable. She is one very smart woman, with wide ranging talent and ability in all aspects of interior design, from architectural design of the space to designing lighting plans. Most importantly for us, she improved our architect’s design by seeing the space in a fresh and creative way that numerous other contractors and architects had missed – this gave us additional kitchen space and a more open flowing design. Another example of Lisa’s out-of-the-box thinking was her idea to hide my desk in a cabinet, rather than have an actual desk occupy space in the room. Even my hard-to-please engineer husband was truly impressed (especially since he also missed these ideas!) I am so happy that I used Lisa from the beginning of this project, rather than just for the actual color/furniture/coordination selection process. … and I am so happy that I also had her help for this part too. I love how she helped me: cheerfully and patiently guiding me, offering me lots of choices, explaining her advice, being always practical about her choices and with my money, and, of course, most importantly, leaving me with two really beautiful rooms that our entire family loves and enjoys. I have heard many people complain about their huge projects – but I think if you choose the right people to help you, the process can be a pleasure. Lisa made this true for us, so I give her my highest recommendation. Thank you, Lisa!
