There was this large empty space. It was my job to figure out what type of space would give this family of five great utility, be very practical, get daily use and look fabulous.
The answer? A family office. With three children in the home they needed a space where laptops could be kept, where homework could be done, where books could be stored and where family members would want to hang out. Since this room is located at the top of the landing, no one feels isolated in another room, everyone wants to spend time there! (The father has his own office and we are currently designing the mother's private space.)
The custom cabinetry keeps the space looking organized. The window seats have become a spot where the mother often sees her children lounging and reading! Under the window seats we created a storage space to stow away gift wrapping supplies. Just in case rain comes as a surprise and the windows are up, we used a Kravet indoor/outdoor textile. All details were considered!
This once "hallway landing" has become a room in the home. I like seeing spaces used and not just viewed. You too? Once the round table and lucite chairs are installed and the space is professionally photographed I will be certain to share images.
