Home Office Ideas

StudyDramatic ChandelierHome OfficeWe turned a bland, old  dining room into a beautiful, peaceful home office.  The before and after photos show an old traditional dining room updated into a  contemporary Home Office. We painted this room Ballet White, by Benjamin Moore,  added new crown molding, changed out the  lighting fixture for a gorgeous chandelier, and  added French Doors.  A couple of little changes, goes a long way.  Just by placing the desk in the window bank, and changing the curtains to white sheer, it  opened and brightened up the room and turned the space into an beautiful, inviting  work station.
