These last two years have shown us just how important our home environment is to our every day lives. Many have continued working from home; therefore, a high functioning space to accommodate weekly meetings and obligations is a must. This couple is no exception, as they have yet to return to their corporate offices. Read on to learn about the beautiful details installed in their new elevated home office. We're confident zoom attendees will soon be jealous of this gorgeous backdrop.

These clients built with new construction with the idea of enhancing it further after they moved in. They left the front two rooms untouched which provided us a blank canvas. The builder Saussy Burbank installed beautiful white oak flooring throughout the entire home. We were really excited to see these because most of our renovation projects have us re-staining red oak to mimic white oak.
We wanted the home office to be cozy and inviting, but also motivate our clients towards productivity. To incorporate their love for modern contemporary, we had our carpenter build this custom T-shaped desk from scratch. The white oak surface compliments the flooring throughout, and the walnut accent adds a gorgeous warm detail along the perimeter of the desk. Because the surface is so smooth, we purposely designed the finish so all of the wood grain moves in the same direction to enhance the waterfall edges.
We wrapped all the walls with a beautiful commercial vinyl wallpaper, and painted the trim, casing, and interior doors SW Pavestone 7642 to compliment. The paint/wallpaper combination instantly changed this room. It hugs you the moment you step inside.
For subtle contrast we paired this fun LED chandelier with dark hardware and wall frames. The rich leather desk chairs help balance the contrast across the room. These clients understand the impact of elevated lighting and window treatments, and we couldn't love them more for it.
The emerald green lounge sofa and beautiful velvet window panels add a fun yet sophisticated pairing to this neutral space. The low profile in the sofa compliments their modern style, and the emerald green provides a rich element.
These clients introduced us to a very unique visual artist named Christopher Marley. Based out of Oregon, Christopher collects deceased creatures from around the world and displays them in unique and beautiful custom curations. He spends months, sometimes years, traveling and sourcing to meticulously curate each piece. He uses a wide range of creatures. From bugs, seen here in this project, to sea life, and more.
