Nice simple office Pullout desk top would work well
I like the way this design converts an alcove into a tidy and functional work space. The pullout desktop is a great feature.
home office looks more like a built-in bureau than a desk area. But when it's time to pay the monthly bills, the false front drawer reveals an entire working surface. This application's beauty is twofold: When it's not in use, everything resting on top of the drawer can stay in the same spot when you push
3. Stare into the distance. Most people stare at computer screens and cubicle walls all day. But it's important to look up from your work and stare several yards into the distance. This allows your eyes rest. The 20-20-20 rule — every 20 minutes stare at something 20 yards away for 20

I love your work; the attention to detail and placement in relation to the natural environment is spectacular; there is a unique combination of serenity and drama that is as appealing as any
If you had to do so much work, is it 'just because it was once a MCM home,.....? Why not just build from scratch? You may not need to use a budget, but it seems more time, work, money to do something like this... Is it the 'bones'? I ask because I want a MCM. But I will need a small home. And on a budget

Granny squares. This rug has all the charm of a hand-knitted shawl. The spunky homespun quality has a sweetness all its own. It works especially well here with what appears to be a collection of handed-down, heirloom furnishings.

no one is ever on the floor, the area rug would serve the purpose only of visually warming up and defining the space. In that case a flat-weave rug works wonders.

Warm yellows. Yellows are not easy to use en masse in a garden. Here, using muted yellows from the cooler end of the yellow spectrum works as a background for the brighter colors of the euphorbias and holds the composition together.
landscape design is that plants are alive. No matter how nurturing and attentive you are, they still are going to do what they want. It's easiest to just work with nature instead of against it. Plant species that are better adapted to your environment.
