The D2 Interieurs award-winning design studio evokes a light and bright atmosphere. Oversized light fixtures provide much-need task lighting over the massive desk area, and since storage is key for organizing samples, one wall is full of shelves and modular drawers stow away under the desks.
Bold, colorful artwork makes a dramatic statement at the base of the floating stairs in this contemporary interior design office. Light tiles and pale woods are used for the flooring throughout the space to keep it airy and bright.

Inside the bedroom is another built-in designed by Kelley. A shelving unit divides the home office from the bed. The shelving offers an abundance of storage for Kelley’s collected pieces. Below, drawers have been installed as additional storage for clothing and accessories.
"I needed to create a transition between the homeowner's office and the lounge area, but didn't want to shut off the space with a traditional wall and door.

Adorable wallpaper from Spoonflower is the highlight of this Carriage House powder room from Vermilion Design Interiors with offices in both Atlanta and Highlands, North Carolina. Designer Bill Cook of Vermilion was inspired by the home's name, Foxtail, and so decided to decorate this bath appropriately. Cook says he "thought that this was the bath of a rather flamboyant and elusive fox who had escaped the hunt and flaunted his friends and family on the walls...swiping a couple of the red wool British hunting jackets and repurposing them as sink and window treatments."

"This garage remodel was designed for a UCLA professor who wanted a stylish home office," says Ron Cohen, CEO of Pearl Remodeling. "Because of zoning restrictions at the time of the remodel, we could not legally convert the garage into a living space, so we kept the garage door operational and updated the interior so it could still be enjoyed as a workspace. We installed new drywall on all walls and ceiling, and light-colored flooring and paint to brighten up the room. Open shelving with complementary decor give this study a modern touch with lots of room to personalize the space."
"We had been using our garage as a dumping ground for tools, lawn equipment, toys and discarded furniture for years," says designer Suzanne Dingley of Suzanne Dingley Interiors. But when her husband started his own business, the couple realized they had the perfect spot for a home office. They installed new windows, doors, floors, drywall, lights and insulation. "The garage had a peaked ceiling with rafters, which we chose to make a feature to bring some character to an otherwise rectangular box." Replacing the overhead garage door with two sets of French doors brought in light and charm.
