Before & After Home Office

Monday, September 27, 2010

On the lower floor of the residence was a room that was not being used.  The carpet was stained from shoes going in and out of the door to backyard and the garage.  The room didn’t get much sun and felt cold painted in a light blue.  We changed the feel of the room and added function by replacing the carpet with a grey tile from Home Depot.  The tile was inexpensive although created a bit of a headache for the tiler when the dye lots didn’t match.  Lucky for us our tiler noticed the discrepancy and took time to remedy the situation, with a few trips to the store to get different dye lots.  The wall colour Benjamin Moore HC 116 Guilford Green added warmth and a fun zip of colour to the space.    Accent lighting also helps to add warmth to the room. The client’s artwork looked great with the wall colour and the red desk popped nicely adding a dynamic contrast to the room.  The bookshelf was accessorized with baskets and boxes to keep it organized and free of clutter.

Furniture, lighting accessories and baskets are from Ikea and HomeSense.
