The dark-hued library was conceived as a more masculine workspace outfitted with a nineteenth century drafting table and a metal shelving unit. Tropical curtains and Batik-inspired sofa cushions lend a tropical vibe.
A small home office, featured on HGTV's Design Star, is staged in front of a large picture window. The bright red desk is inspired by an architect's drafting table, and adds a splash of color against mint green walls. A classic desk lamp and molded armchair complete the look.
This long, narrow space is used to its maximum advantage as a home office and studio, with a long built-in desk that's situated ideally to enjoy this home's sweeping waterfront views. An easel in the corner gets the benefit of loads of natural sunlight from the room's many windows. A drafting table is functional for projects of all kinds.
