Architectural and Design Elements Combine to Create a Grander, Larger Feeling Office Space
Although this space is small, designers used the architecture of the building as well as elements in their design to make the space feel larger. For example, stately wood paneling leads the eye all the way up to the high, pitched ceiling, while the ceiling height, arched windows let in plenty of natural light so that the space feels magnificent. Then, designers brought in rugs and art to create defined spaces within the office so that the room has flow and purpose. Finally, designers used strategically placed metallic pieces, such as the desk and filing cabinet, to reflect all of the gorgeous light in the space, creating a functional space with a grand feeling.
Colorful, Eclectic Home Library Offers Comfy Seating
Two walls of built-ins rise to the peaked ceiling of this contemporary, third-story library. Chairs are sited to make the most of the room's lakefront views. A collection of Suzani blankets inspired the room's design and color palette.
Elements of this entrance mimic features inside the library for a cohesive look. Sconces framing the doorway resemble the dramatic pendant light over the fireplace. The doorframe's stain color matches the tray ceiling stain in the library.

Eclectic Living Room Features Floral Sofa, Sunny Yellow Pillows
