This light-filled home office is built for organization and convenience. Built-in shelves offer ample space to store supplies, and drawers throughout the space provide hidden storage. A custom step stool built into the window seat gives the homeowner's furry friend access to a sunny napping spot.
An inviting porte-cochere trimmed with heavy wood beams connects a side entrance of this French country-style home in Atlanta, Georgia, to a small shed that is set up to serve as a private office or studio. Both structures are clad in whitewashed wood shingles, mimicking the style of the adjacent carriage house garage.
Down the hall, the owners have access to a home office. A huge built-in bookshelf displays various odds and ends, while a contemporary desk and midcentury chair create a dedicated workspace -- complete with a large photograph of a French bulldog!
This home office brings inside and outside together with direct access to a courtyard. White paneling contrasts beautifully with dark wood and accessories, while the recessed lights give the room a warm glow.
Look for bookcases that provide a combination of open and closed storage. The open area helps the room feel larger and provides easy access to books, while doors and drawers hide items that could make the space look cluttered.
Downstairs, the owners have access to a spacious finished basement with a family room, a true laundry room, a guest suite *and* a home office. A contemporary sectional and glass-topped coffee table make this space feel cool yet comfortable.
High-speed wired Internet outlets installed throughout the home, with high-speed wireless access points on the second and third floors that extend the range and help keep a consistent online connection for the laptop in the office.

This long master bedroom serves many functions for the homeowners. A fully retractable fourth wall reveals access to the homeowners' semi-private patio; a bed with plush bed linens completes the relaxation space. For a sitting area, designers brought in a gray, Contemporary sofa and clear coffee table to add a place to enjoy a good book, while a wood, Midcentury Modern desk adds an office space to the room.
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.
