House Calls: Remaking a balmy workspace

January 29, 2015 - table lamp


Sue and Rob Okun’s room. (Leah L. Jones/For The Washington Post)

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.


The solution. (Julius Goyanko / )

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.
