Living in Rhode Island and having been a member of the Preservation Society of Newport County (aka those who run the famous "Newport Mansions"), I have always loved the style of the Gilded Age. This is my take on a home library for my current home.
When I purchased the house the depicted area was an aluminum sunroom with windows surrounding three sides and two access doors, installed on a portion of my wraparound deck. It was a good idea gone bad.
The screens were long gone and the windows had failed. One of the two access doors had jammed never to open again. And, there was no privacy.
Hot summers and cold winters prevented use of the space as there was no heat or cooling. The tile floors were a magnet for strange stains and other unnamed things. Flies and bugs and some worms thought it was Heaven on Earth. Ugh!
Today, it has been completely rebuilt with real insulated walls and energy efficient windows. A privacy wall on one side provided space for an electric fireplace for fun and additional heat if needed.
A ceiling fan with a light replaced the chandelier that I kept hitting with my head. The wide pine floors now match the same in the main living area. Occasional seating and a large sheep skin rug completes the cozy space.
The now 7x10 sq feet all weather living space could be used for dining or just sitting. But, I use it as my escape office. No more looking at walls in the back bedroom!

This office was decorated over six years ago. The space has been functional, but needed some updating. WIth a smart, savvy budget- repurposing, refreshing and cleaning things out...a NEW and FRESH office was born. Enjoy!

Home office furniture gets a fresh facelift with a crisp white coat of paint and new hardware. Taupe, black, white, and browns lend a calming effect and make an inviting space for computer and homw office tasks.

Converted an unused bedroom into an home office. I infused this room with lots of bright, soft colours. The patterns, textures and colours used in this room help to create an energetic and unique feminine feel.

Our local habitat created a design challenge called Restore Restyle. All items in the room had to be from the habitat store. We were given a 10' x 10' space to start. The desk was made from a bed and door. The rug was made with shredded sheets and landscape netting. The hanging spheres were made from two builder grade lights glued together and spray painted.
