The kitchen flows freely into the home, where a double-sided partner’s desk is perfect for the homeowners' needs. The space also works as a homework area, complete with oak cabinetry that stores shoes and backpacks.
In large rooms, pay close attention to the shape, size and scale of any featured artwork. When small subjects are placed across a generously sized room, they lose their impact and appear more as visual clutter than a focal point. Here, in the multipurpose workspace located off the kitchen, an oversized fiberglass Trojan horse grounds the space and creates a focal point from across the great room.

Aside from the kitchen, Chris planned to spend the least amount of money on his second bedroom, which would be used as an office. Taking the advice of a designer friend, he had the room painted in a blue-grey tone from Sherwin-Williams called Krypton and had custom draperies in a modern print made from a clearance bin fabric at $11.99 per yard. Since his laptop is pretty much the only thing he needs to work from home, the room was simply furnished with a vintage desk picked up from an antique market for $600 and paired with a black woven grass chair from IKEA that was $59. To soften the area underfoot, he installed FLOR tiles in a striped pattern, alternating each tile for a parquet look.
This family-friendly kitchen features a large island topped by a row of beautiful and functional pendant lights.

This warm-colored kitchen, dominated by wood-on-wood textures follows the same rules of space management that work so well in Kalyn’s office: smooth surfaces, simple colors and a very effective use of storage.
