Built-ins. To make the most of the existing shelves, Rosene had her carpenter add cabinets for additional storage beneath them. There’s lots of room for the homeowners to display some favorite things here, such as the African necklace, decoupaged ostrich egg from South Africa and slingshots from Jamaica. Sofa. The sleeper sofa nestles into the existing 21-inch-deep alcove. It’s upholstered in a nubby textile with velvet piping.The desk. It was goodbye to the bulky desk-hutch unit and the electronics on it and hello to a walnut waterfall desk and a laptop. The base of the desk has another golden touch, a gold leaf Tobi Fairley motif. The chair has a beautiful woven fabric in a gray and bronze wavy pattern.Window treatments. The windows are covered in woven grass blinds, which add an organic texture to the room. The drapes are linen with a patterned trim. Desk: Thomas, Woodbridge; Desk chair: Cross Effect Icon, Sligh; seedpod: Robert-Lawrence Designs
