Our clients first set out to create their new office space themselves. They had a clear vision of the space they wanted, but had trouble finding all the right furnishings and weren’t sure how to match the existing hardwood floors with new ones. Janet Aurora was happy to help.
The new office space is for Mom and Dad only! With three boys in the house, the parents wanted a place to call their own and their vision was to accommodate a space for both to work from home as well as quiet spot to store and read all the books they had acquired over the years. Janet started with a floor plan to show how to incorporate a substantial bookcase, reading nook, working space, and oversized file cabinet. Next she created a color scheme including paint color, hardwood, area rug and window treatments which all tied together beautifully. The tricky part was the flooring – coordinating the new hardwood flooring with the existing builder grade hardwood floors. The solution was to use hardwood with wider planks in a similar color tone to create a distressed look.
