When my client said she wanted me to design her office around her BEAUTIFUL antique secretary desk I jumped at the chance! However, this design did come with a few challenges. My client was hoping we could incorporate an office, guest room, reading space, and her secretary desk in this 10′ x 12′ room. Hmmm… My solution you ask? I put her in the closet!
We decided to take the closet out to make room for her desk space. After removing the doors, painting the walls a dramatic coral color, all that was needed for the work surface were 2 filing cabinets and a piece of wood cut to size. Easy peasy!
I selected a small sleeper sofa for the seating. This way she can have a comfortable place to read or enjoy a cup of coffee, but when necessary she can pop it out to accommodate her guests.
