House Calls: Remaking a balmy workspace
January 29, 2015 - table lamp
Sue and Rob Okun of a District use their sunroom as a workspace, though they also wish it to be comfortable and mouth-watering and yield some storage. It acts as a pass-through between their dining room and their screened porch, though it also has windows and doors on each wall, so they are carrying difficulty arranging furniture.
Designer Annette Phillips creates a incomparable workspace with face-to-face stations and adds a console list for storage. Phillips, of Inspired Design LLC (703-819-1071, www.yourstyleinspired.com), is formed in Vienna.
Paint a walls a low blue, such as Benjamin Moore’s Blue Daisy, to concede a walls to incline and a windows to mount out.
A round rug brings a seat groupings together and adds density and warmth.
A non-white roof prevents a blue walls from reflecting on a ceiling. Try Benjamin Moore’s Carrington Beige.
Install a easier roof fan to make it some-more cohesive with a light tie in a adjacent dining room.
A new chair creates a cozy indentation for reading.
Natural shades supplement texture and can be sealed in a colder months to forestall feverishness loss.
