Sheen of paint? - This room is a big inspiration for my daughters bedroom, we decided to buy the same paint you mentioned you used for this room but would you happen to remember what sheen you got? We were thinking eggshell, but we're not quite sure.

What is the diameter of the drapery rods and what brand are they? - I've had an awful time trying to locate metal "modern" nickel or stainless steel drapery rods larger than 1 inch diameter...even through my decorator. I prefer this look over the traditional wood rods. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks.

Anytime you want to go lighter or darker, just tell the store to make the color at 50%..or 150%. This way you get your perfect hue and your perfect shade.

Hanging sheers with these drapes - My drapes are hung the same as in this pic. I also have sheers which I have hung from top of the window rather than the height of the ceiling. Is this a faux pas?

I'd hang the sheers at the same height as the drapes. Hope this helps.

When I received you reply, I had already hung the sheers. I put them even with the top of the window. This created a nice 3D effect in that the drapes were hung from the ceiling and 9 inches from the wall.

See that white line under the table in the corner coming out from the table? I think it's fabric covered cord..not sure..because it looks like a table leg but that's the only thing I see that could be it..

Thank you for your question. I "removed" the cord in Photoshop for the photo. In the room the cord was not plugged in, but taped up under the table. Because this was a show house room, the light did not need to function. In a home, this lamp would not be possible without a few rug tricks.

Thanks! The desk is a table that's been in my family for decades. It was my grandparents' kitchen table and mine growing up. It's now my desk in my home office. Consider a table for a desk if you like this size of this one. Good luck!

Thank you for your inquiry on the lamp. I believe I found this one at HomeGoods! You never know what great finds you will see there.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kelly Porter added this to Colorful Window Treatments
Colorful window treatments can also lighten the mood in a space. Here, curtains covered with pretty purple flowers bring a burst of cheer to the space.
Shoshana Gosselin added this to 19 Double-Duty Living Rooms
This would make a beautiful living room to see as soon as you walk into a home. A desk floated on a cool printed rug becomes the main attraction. The rest of the space is dressed up in purple and blue, keeping if from looking office-y.
Erin Lang Norris added this to 15 Ways To Be More Inspired by Your Studio
Add bold drapery. If you lean toward spaces painted in neutral hues, this graphic drapery adds just the right amount of punch to a room used for creative purposes.
Lisa Frederick added this to Create a Home Office on a Shoestring
Nothing about this room says "office," but look closer, and you'll see how cleverly it's arranged. The worktable, lamp and chair blend seamlessly with the refined trappings, while guests or clients can have a seat in the cushioned chair opposite. If your home is tight on space, you could take this approach in a living area also.
Jason Ball at The Decorators Unlimited added this to Find Your Window Treatment Style
In transitional design, play with the scale of the pattern for a huge impact. In this room, a geometric design on the area rug is paired with an over-scale floral fabric used for the drapery. While this room feels borderline traditional, the fabric pattern and shape of the occasional chair keep it from being too serious.

Jess McBride added this to The Art of the Window: 10 Ways to Love Draperies
3. As a starting place. Draperies often provide the initial inspiration for a room design, as was the case in this decorator’s showcase home office. While there are no prescribed rules in decorating, many designers advocate starting with one element you love, such as a flashy fabric, to serve as the attention-getting statement piece in the room, and then building off that. Here, the draperies are mounted near the ceiling, preserving the symmetry of the flat trim around the windows and creating the illusion of height.Draperies: Thomas Paul fabric, Duralee
