A traditional study serving its duality of business and personal activities!
After moving to Texas from California, the client wanted to fill their home with new furnishings as they brought very little with them during the transfer. The study is to be used by the client’s husband for both business and personal purposes. Thus, she wanted a space to reflect his interests while also visually appealing to everyone. While she wanted the space to keep with the rest of the home, she wanted it to still feel like its own space. With the client’s love of deep jewel tones, we had utilized deep blue and emerald green in the other spaces of the home. For the study, we decided to use deeper blue and copper as accents.
Built-ins were added in the study for storage and to add balance with the height of the windows and the high ceiling in the room. To draw the eye up to the ceiling, I wallpapered the ceiling in a metallic copper grass cloth, giving the room a pop of color and the perfect sheen with the metallic copper. I further decided to wallpaper the walls as the client decided not to add window treatments to this space. The wallpaper selected is a neutral design which adds some curve to the straighter edges of the room.
I added a large area rug in a deep blue and copper, covering most of the floor and adding further warmth to the space. The desk selected has the same deep stain as the built-in shelves, balancing the more feminine aspects of the room. The chair has curved lines with a great tone-on-tone greek key pattern. The cute copper table and copper pillow pull together the seating in the corner of the room without being too outdone. The opening shelving is a great place for the client to display their library of books and their sentimental collection pieces.
