An Equestrian's Office and a New Guest Room Suite
An unused formal living room was converted into a functional office for the lady of the house, who is an accomplished and self-employed equestrian. Our goal was to add character, personality and function to the office, while at the same time displaying all of the equestrian accessories and wall art she had accumulated over the decades. Initially, our clients were worried about the “beige” walls, which really just served as the canvas for her vast collection of decorative items. By displaying so many of her treasures on the walls, not only could she better enjoy them, but it also minimized clutter everywhere else. A few dashes of purple (a favorite color), such as an accent chair and the trim around the windows, break up the neutrals and browns.
A bedroom, which used to serve as the office but was no longer functional and had essentially become a "closet" full of paperwork, collectibles, etc., was now freed up to become a beautiful guest room along with a remodeled hall bath.
