Designer Claire Paquin designed this home office to accommodate two users as well as her client's storage needs. She lined one long wall with built-in bookcases and file cabinetry, while using the other walls for built-in desks and additional cabinets. Colorful modern art and area rug complete this contemporary look.
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.
