What Houzz contributors are saying:

The home office houses Dan's impressive antique train collection. Ten years ago Erin picked up a train from a flea market as a gift to Dan. Since then he's found most of its companions on eBay. Dan has more trains than the custom-built floating shelves will hold, so he rotates the collection.Some of the trains are made of surplus tin with vintage bottlecap graphics printed on one side, and others are made of cast iron. "Towards the end of World War I, there was a shortage of cast iron, so for three years they made a copy of one locomotive out of tin instead and resumed using cast iron after the war," Dan explains.Paint color: Whole Wheat, Dunn Edwards
Step 7: Don't Dismiss Anyone's PassionWe all have our own loves, and they don't always mesh with the loves of the person we happen to be sharing a roof with — and that's OK. It's important to respect the other person's hobbies and interests, while also finding a way to work them into a shared space that pleases you both.Case in point: This collection of model trains could have easily gotten out of hand. But lined up on simple floating shelves, they suddenly look crisp and intriguing.
Dan Benedict shows off his train collection in his home office. See more of this house
