The Williams family asked Chip and his design team for a functional, family friendly kitchen. That's exactly what they got. As seen on HGTV's Elbow Room, Chip Wade and his team of skilled designers created a multi-faceted kitchen that would be useful for a family with school aged kids. In a section of the kitchen, he placed the natural wood countertops on hinges and added storage for the Williams' kids to study.
The girls outgrew their carpeted playroom that housed their old blocks, games and toys. It was time for an upgrade to a functional, age appropriate space that was youthful yet feminine and had enough sophistication to last them the next several years. The family needed this space to function as a study area and a loungy tween (and soon teen) hangout.
To the left, a large study area -- which could also be used as a home school classroom -- features bookshelves, ergonomically correct chairs, a map and other necessary supplies. On the right, the home's humble entry shows a beautiful wood plank ceiling and frosted sliding glass doors.
A blue accent wall and geometric rug generate a feeling of youth in this stylish, contemporary kid's room. Keeping the space around the white, contemporary desk highly organized creates an ideal space for study and homework.
Lofty and airy this dormitory lounge area with feels spacious and welcoming, conducive to focusing on some work or gathering together with friends. Bright pillows and chairs bring some cheer and pops of color without being too distracting.
An essential element in a teen bedroom -- a study area -- is commanded by this desk, crafted from pipes and reclaimed flooring. The desk is attached to the wall, providing ample shelving storage area without taking up a great deal of visual space. A custom radiator cabinet is a lovely way to update an older home while retaining some of the original charm.
This stylish study begins with three-panel glass doors opening to the grid-ceiling detail and industrial cable lighting. The space is fitted with a custom partner’s desk and cream leather chairs. The ceiling pattern is also custom-made and is echoed in the cubed cocktail tables and chocolate carpet.
Sophisticated and homey at once, this study is filled with a rich blue. The leather chairs are reminiscent of an old library, yet the zebra-print rug gives the room a modern zing. What a great spot to plop your feet on the ottoman and curl up with a good novel.
