Home Office / Guest Bedroom 7 photos
This homeowner requested professional assistance transforming this small, jumbled room with lots of angles into an efficient home office and occasional guest bedroom for visiting family. Maintaining the existing stained wood moldings was requested and the final vision was to reflect their Nigerian heritage in a dramatic and tasteful fashion. First, the built-in hutch was replaced with a sleeper sofa, dramatic wallpaper and sconces. Storage cabinets were added below the flanking niche shelves and with upper shelves in a dead corner. Office supplies were camouflaged with grass shades on the walk-in closet French doors and this organic texture was repeated on the entry French doors for privacy. Light, color and interest were added with the use of a variety of textures such as the nubby sofa fabric, the African cloth pillows, global accessories, velvet on a striking wing chair with a leather ottoman, as well as a hand-knotted Tibetan rug and a beloved painting by a favorite Nigerian artist.
