Let go of barely used fur­ni­ture.

A rarely used van­ity ta­ble that took up a lot of space was the first to go. Next was a glass TV con­sole that didn’t blend with the rest of the fur­ni­ture. Do away with bulky fur­ni­ture and go for sleek, func­tional pieces.

Max­i­mize win­dows.

Plac­ing the new work­table by the win­dow posed a chal­lenge for win­dow treat­ment. Cur­tains would be too long, so Nikki opted for Ro­man shades, which can eas­ily be pulled up when needed, giv­ing the own­ers just the right amount of nat­u­ral light they want. A cou­ple of nice-look­ing frames from Al­lHome, some faux plants, and homey ac­cents like scented can­dles cre­ate a laid­back feel. Com­bin­ing work and liv­ing ar­eas can be tricky, so keep things sim­ple.

Mind the de­tails.
