What Houzz contributors are saying:

The office is one room in the house that is 100% Shannon. The book collection displayed by color order (I do the same thing!) and the milk glass collection around the perimeter make the room feel relaxed but not messy.
Finding space to display collections is always a challenge. Here the homeowner looked up and found room for shelving near the ceiling.
Danyelle Mathews added this to The Family Home: Creative Multi-Use Workspaces
Make it comfortable. The goal is to entice every family member to want to spend time there, even if creating something isn't the goal. Cozy seating, plush pillows and a few favorite books will lure loved ones in.More Family Home:Living Rooms You Can Live InA Kitchen the Entire Clan Will Love
