A personal workspace on an elevated platform in the home office sits directly below a skylight and provides a calm and unique work area that seems detached from the rest of the house. A balcony along with staircase connects the house with the rear patio while it is still the parlor level with kitchen dining and other public spaces that ends up stealing the spotlight!

The novel bookshelves add to this facelift even as a cool fireplace with custom shelves designed to hold vinyl records flanking it steals the show in the living room. An exposed brick wall section reclaimed pine cabinets and custom island in the kitchen and the dashing wooden dining table usher in plenty of textural contrast. White and gray shape much of the background with pops of red orange and blue enriching the home.
