Writing Desk, Armchair Tuck Neatly Into Stairwell Nooks in Foyer
You don't need a huge space to have a home office and reading nook. This desk and armchair are set up in small nooks created with the addition of a stairwell during a home renovation. A small writing desk offers enough room for a laptop and other desktop necessities, and the addition of a simple dining chair rather than a heavy duty office chair keeps the look streamlined.
With a round table and six chairs, this dining room gives everyone plenty of elbow room while they enjoy their meal. Overhead, a glass-blown chandelier brightens the space and becomes a point of interest.
When they need a place to jot down grocery lists, make budgets or send emails, the owners can enjoy this dedicated workspace in the corner of the kitchen. A modern sconce illuminates the desk, while the wood chair complements the kitchen's earthy color palette.
With any fixer, concessions need to be made and rather than gut the existing kitchen in, the homeowner chose to update the cabinets with black paint and add a classic subway tile backsplash. Design details give the kitchen a high-end look. The plants and flag above the upper cabinets emphasize the room’s generous ceiling height while the leaned artwork and vintage rug add a dash of sophistication.
White and Green Country Kitchen With Red Barstools
One of the problems of this cabin's former kitchen was that it didn't have any views of the nearby lake. A long row of windows remedies that and brings natural light into the now bright and welcoming room.
