Chip and his team from Elbow Room created a space for the Struves that includes noise canceling walls, storage space and modern furniture. They also included a bathroom for potential clients and guests so that their business can remain in the business portion of their house and out of their private spaces.
All the comforts of home can be found in this home office designed by TriplePoint Design Build that features built-in storage cabinets, a mounted flatscreen television and a bathroom within just a few steps. The room, like the rest of the home, is done in the subtle tone of brown and beige to achieve a functional aesthetic. Decorative photographs and art line the built-in shelf and cabinet countertop.
Fiorella Design custom designed the bed and nightstands and then flank the bed with simple black sconces. A dramatic chandelier is paired with exposed ceiling beams to bring the eye up. The bedroom opens up to a home office, master bathroom and walk-in closets, and pocket doors are used to close off the space for a streamlined look.
A bathroom adjacent to the home office is punctuated by a mocha-brown color palette. A Silestone-tiled shower stall pairs with a Silestone-topped rustic maple Wellborn vanity in the HGTV Dream Home 2010.
What's brown and black and red and blue plaid all over? This innovative home office space that combines varying patterns and colors with striking result. The adjacent bathroom picks up the red and black cabinetry and neutral wall color to further connect the two spaces.
The actual containers used in this home are concealed behind the duplex, and mirror each other, just as the duplex units mirror each other with two bedrooms and three bathrooms. Similarly to designer Patrice Rios’ own container, these function as either an office or guesthouse. Neither contains a bathroom, but there’s easy access to one on the first floor of each unit. Rios is currently designing another duplex in the city that will incorporate shipping containers inside the home.
This home is located in a highly desirable neighborhood, but did not offer the space that a growing family would require. Originally built in the 1940s and featuring solid construction, a complete home renovation made the most sense. The renovation includes an addition on the rear of the home, adds a complete second level with four bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as opens up the main level to create a highly desirable open concept featuring an office, mudroom and gourmet kitchen.
