My home office is finally done! It’s the place I work from everyday, and I love having a space that’s beautiful, clean, and bright for maximum creativity and calm.
Take a look inside our completed home office!
Of all the rooms in our house, the home office was the last to get completed and decorated. But it’s finally done!
This room sits on the front of the house and gets beautiful bright light inside it everyday, and it has really tall ceilings. So we did bright white walls and dark wood beams on the ceiling to make this space look and feel really spacious and open.
Check it out!
Details of our built-in shelving and cupboards in the home office
This room has two really large walls with no windows or doors on them, so we had custom shelving added to one wall so there was lots of storage, shelving, and a desk to put my sewing machines.
Since the rest of the room was bright white, we decided to add a dark gray wall behind the built in, and I love the dimension it brings. We have this color of paint in a few spots in our house, and it’s a custom color to match a piece of furniture in our home, so unfortunately I don’t have a paint color name for you. But you can see the exact mix IN THIS POST because it’s the same color we painted our home theater.
A full wall of wainscot paneling makes this room!
The opposite wall to the built in was a big blank wall too, so we had wainscot paneling added to that entire wall to give it some dimension and interest. This may be my favorite wall in the whole house. It’s simple and stunning!
We added wooden beams to the ceiling
When we built the house, we had the option to add wooden beams to the ceiling. They were pretty expensive, so we opted to add them to ONLY the family room (you can see that here) and not to the home office.
But after a year, Philip decided beams needed to be added. So we called back our carpenter and he built some for us…at a fraction of the price the home builder was asking. Woohoo!
I love how the beams look and draw your eye up toward the vaulted ceiling.
