What Houzz contributors are saying:

4. Dark wood. There's something very solid and grown-up about dark wood - it adds gravitas to any space.

If we turn our attention to look through the office towards the butler's pantry, we could see something like this. [RS: So, for me, the key is making sure that there is some ongoing organic connection in the design language as you look from the office to the butler's pantry. The big question is, how different can the built-ins all look and still make it feel as if it's unified?]

This very grown-up room can easily house small readers without compromising its regal class. A miniature antique table and chairs under the window or a children's upholstered reading chair in the corner with its own basket of picture books will foster a love of learning--and help you keep turning your own pages in peace.
