Although this space is small, designers used the architecture of the building as well as elements in their design to make the space feel larger. For example, stately wood paneling leads the eye all the way up to the high, pitched ceiling, while the ceiling height, arched windows let in plenty of natural light so that the space feels magnificent. Then, designers brought in rugs and art to create defined spaces within the office so that the room has flow and purpose. Finally, designers used strategically placed metallic pieces, such as the desk and filing cabinet, to reflect all of the gorgeous light in the space, creating a functional space with a grand feeling.

Originally the home’s dining room, Ariene’s office is a place for her to work, reflect and create. But getting the space into it’s current shape wasn’t easy. “The hardest part of designing my home was turning my dining room into a home office without it looking a like an office,” she remembers. Earlier iterations of the room included yellow walls, followed by white stripes before becoming completely white. “The layouts changed as my business grew. It’s more of a workspace now, since I’ve opened my shop and now have a dedicated office there.”
