Foothill Drive Project: Office

You've seen the video. You've seen the formal living room. Now let's move to the office! The formal living and office face each other on either side of the entryway. I love that one is quite feminine and the other is masculine, but they work together beautifully. 

The layout before the makeover was great, but the finishes felt heavy:

We painted the walls and trim Simply White by Benjamin Moore and it made a world of difference. We wanted to brighten the room but keep it masculine, so we played with a few different ideas...charcoal, black, navy, etc. Ultimately we went with Cheating Heart by Benjamin Moore. It is the perfect navy/charcoal blend.

The Ziyi Chandelier was a perfect fit for the space with its formal look that's also simple and modern.

If your home office has the space to have a seating area, go for it! We love a spot a chatting, reading, and relaxing.
