loft-turned-office

Portfolio No Comments

A busy bestselling author/mom/finance exec wanted to transform the family’s loft into a proper office space. On her wish list was a large desktop to spread out research materials, a place for her two daughters to be with her watching TV or playing, and a door to close off the room when desired.  Their Cape Cod style home led many of the design decisions, including white barn doors, hand scraped hardwood floors and deep blue accent colors.

This loft-turned-office has lots of storage and takes advantage of the tall, angled ceilings. The beadboard ceiling and white cabinets against gray and blue walls creates a nautical feel. The little table in the blue niche was cut in half, painted white, then wall hung in each of the two niches.

On one end of the loft is built-in cabinetry to store the girls’ games and books. Mini barn doors on steel hardware hide the TV. The ironing board that was always left out found a home tucked into a tall cabinet.

At the other end, a massive U-shaped desk was created out of Silestone Istmo slab material supported with turned table legs. Built-in storage above corrals research items and a fabric bulletin board holds creative ideas. We can’t wait to read her next novel!
