The selective restoration of this ocean front home pays homage to its nautical environment. The study in particular was designed to emulate the pilothouse of a ship; the ceiling resembles the ribs of the inner carcass of a boat hull; materials like holly, teak and mahogany replicate boat materials; to amplify the effect.

6. Decide whether to sit or to stand. The kids will probably need to sit for homework, but your needs might be different.

If you’re going to be productive, you’ve also got to be comfortable.”
I love how this craft space is open to the rest of the house yet in it's own nook due to the split level. It's so important to have these rooms in houses, instead of everyone on their ipads, phones, laptops, everyone gets to unwind and connect doing creative things as a family.

like the idea of raised half walls to separate and yet still be a part of the family room when sewing ... Love that.. especially if one is moving to Texas on ranch property with only a spouse and does not want to be so far away!!!!!
WHAT IF....a portion of the floor in the office, the portion near the back window, the view area - was raised a short step, to elevate the winter view, and possible cut down on the outside railing being directly at site level
I think this is the rest of the circular feel room, i like that its connected to the rest of the house.
I think having it more open would make me be tidier and finish projects faster BUT i think it wouldnt feel like an escape. But it would be good for the kids cause i could supervise them playing in the adjoining room while i make stuff
