At the top of the stairs, a circular table echoes the curves of the metal railing. Just off this upstairs hall, the home office provides ample workspace for two people. Desks sit on opposite sides of the room to allow for privacy. Slipcovered side chairs play the role of desk chairs, offering an opportunity for the designers to bring in some fun with patterned fabric. The mirror combines form with function as it beautifully reflects light from the window to brighten up the space while also holding a wooden shelf that helps keep desk clutter at bay. “The great thing about this room is that it’s versatile,” says Nellie. “It can easily be converted into a bunkroom or nursery depending on the homeowners’ needs.”
