Before & After: Home Office Makeover in Missouri
May 08, 2020 in Before & After | no comments

Earlier this year we revealed some of the install photos from our design project in Missouri. One of the spaces we worked on for this long-distance client is a home office. For this project, we worked with a local contractor, Future Contracting, on the renovation of this room. We appreciate all of the images that they have shared with us from the completed home office so that we can reveal it on the blog today. Here is a look at this amazing transformation!

Before: Home Office

The home office was very dark and very brown. The design goal was to brighten it and incorporate plenty of functionality to the space, particularly storage.

Beyond new furnishings, we needed to design a new custom built-in that could hideaway office equipment and supplies like filing cabinets and printers. We also needed to brighten the space with a new paint plan.

Here’s another look at the home office before.

After: Home Office

What a makeover! Remotely we provided our client with a furnishings plan for the home office, including a design concept for the new built-ins, which now offers a major style statement to the room. The lower cabinets were designed to house a filing cabinet and a printer so that they can be hidden behind doors.

The upper cabinets were designed with an inset antique mirror to add even more style to the space. Above the cabinets, natural brass picture lights add a stately look. The new upper cabinets frame open shelving for decor and functionality.

A soft palette of neutrals and soft blue can be found in all of the furnishings. We selected a desk in an alabaster finish and a decorative soft gold base to anchor the office. Tufted velvet chairs create a pretty seating moment in the space.

For even more storage, we incorporated a neutral chest with frames above to fill the corner nook.

Soft blue printed draperies frame each window to give even more polish to this sophisticated home office. Finally, as you look up we incorporated beams to highlight the dramatic vaulted ceilings. The beams add character to the renovated space. A double caged lantern provides even more sparkle.

We love this home office transformation! Whether you live in Austin or beyond, let our team help dramatically transform one of the spaces in your home.
