The study is a space that will be used for simple everyday activities. Since our homeowner is retired, she did not have a lot of items that needed storage.
For this space, I decided to paint the walls in a blue tone that was grayed down so it would not be took dark for the room. This is a small space but it is flooded with natural light with the windows. Of the few items my client was bringing with her from Washington was a Waterford chandelier that she had had for years. Once I saw a picture of the chandlier, I knew the study would be perfect place for it. Since it is a smaller space and storage was not a necessity, I opted to use a writing desk. The silverleaf finish on the writing desk adds a touch of elegance to the room while also reflecting light in the room. The desk chair has a fun fabric with blues and golds, with an accent chair in gray linen fabric to finish the area. I added contrast to the room with a darker finish on the shelving unit and there we displayed all her family pictures and accessories. We anchored the desk area with a vintage-look area rug in a fun pattern. This space is a great place to not only work, but to gaze outside, letting your mind wander and daydream. The space may be small, but now it is both function and gorgeous.
