Home office suggestions welcome
August 15, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We need to replace our original ideas for my husband's home office with something more budget friendly. The room is 13x12 with the doorway on the wall opposite the built in bookcases. There is a set of double windows on the left adjacent wall, the right adjacent wall is solid ( no openings/windows). The walls have already been painted gray (with green undertone). The bookshelves will be painted, although we still need to choose a color. I'm leaning towards black. The floors are American Cherry with a medium stain. We intend to purchase a double pedestal desk (thinking cherry/black combo), as well as a nice leather office chair. I'd like to make the room feel den-like, maybe add in a reading chair and side table, also we will need a space for his printer. And I'd like to avoid having computer wires running across the floor, so desk placement will be key. I'm also bothered by the gap between the built ins. To me, it makes the wall seem unfinished. I'm thinking art or a mirror, but just not sure what to do there. I'd appreciate any suggestions on furniture placement, shelf colors, desk/printer set up, etc. thanks in advance!
