The Ultimate She-Shed
This home office was created from an outbuilding on the property. Seagrass wall-to-wall carpet was installed for ultimate durability and a relaxed vibe. We employed a high-low aesthetic to create a space that was unique but still within budget, utilizing the owner's Stickley desk, a custom desk chair, custom blush Roman shades, a Hudson Valley Fenwater chandelier and sconces, and multiple office items from budget sources like IKEA and The Container Store. The ceiling is painted Quicksand and walls and trim in White Dove by Benjamin Moore. Photo by Sabrina Cole Quinn Photography.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Inside, she chose wall-to-wall-seagrass carpet, a mix of high and low furniture pieces and custom window treatments.The fabric Mitchell chose for the windows – a faded blush floral print with camel, steel and bronze accents – helped pull the design scheme together, inspiring the room’s colour palette and balancing the various styles and themes Mitchell wanted to include. “[It] struck me as feminine cowgirl,” she says.The vintage Stickley desk is Mitchell’s primary workspace. With most of the furnishings coming from big-box retailers, she wanted a piece that would give a sense of heritage and a timeless quality. “I’m a sucker for really well-made furniture,” she says. An added budget bonus: Mitchell found the desk on consignment. Its wood stands out in the mostly white room, providing a place for the eye to rest.
