A pair of large windows are framed by a built-in wood desk flanked by open shelves. The desk area is conveniently located off the kitchen and provides a lovely view to the garden.

    Thanks very much for taking the time to reply! The desk is a little longer than I would have guessed. I have an alcove 8 ft x 8ft, with a 6 ft window and you have inspired me to try something similar. Although my side shelves would have to be quite shallow... Would you recall the dimensions of the units you used at all? Thanks very much again! Great space!

    Thank you! The side units were custom built and are 12" deep.

    For the trim, we did a color match with the existing trim in the remainder of the house.

    Absolutely beautiful job. It's just what I would want my office to look like! The elements came together so well.

    We are unable to identify this particular color, but the Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter #HC-173 is a similar color that we have used successfully on several projects.

    It is a sconce light that is mounted to the cabinetry.

    Paint colors are challenging to answer because usually they have been fine-tuned on site so we don’t have a specific paint color. Also colors vary greatly in photos from actuality and even further from computer screen to computer screen. We recommend getting small samples and trying them in your home to see how the colors work with your specific light.

    The client purchased the cabinet hardware- most likely from Chown Hardware or Rejuvenation - both here in Portland, Oregon.

    The windows are 3' W x 4' H. They are a little distorted in the photo due to the wide angle lens used for photographing.

    Yes, it was finished with a satin polyurethane.

      When hanging window that is on front patio... first keep in mind ceiling space with 8 foot doors and possible higher windows. Higher sill might allow a desk height like this which might be nice. Just another consideration.
