    Reclaimed wood. We’ve already seen it several times on this list — whether on walls, floors, desks or shelves, the warmth of reclaimed wood was a favorite decorating element in the office. I have a theory that it makes us feel a little bit like Thoreau in his cabin on Walden Pond even if we’re sitting in the middle of the city or the suburbs. Do you have a theory about it? Let me know in the Comments section!Wall color: Silver Satin, Benjamin Moore; desk, shelves and chair: West Elm; window treatment: Window Treatments by Melissa, Etsy; rug: Pottery Barn; Roman shade: Etsy

    2. Going CoastalDesigner: Marissa Cramer of Made Co InteriorsLocation: Playa Vista, CaliforniaBudget: $8,000 for entire room (see below for breakdown)Homeowners’ request: “The homeowners are a young married couple who had a baby on the way and had just purchased their first home in Southern California,” says designer Marissa Cramer. “They wanted to achieve a relaxed coastal decor throughout the space. They requested an updated office space in the guest room that’s bright and comfortable, with some storage solutions to hide away documents, files and miscellaneous items.”What wasn’t working: “The guest room had a home office nook with dark, bulky built-ins that were simply too heavy and dated for what the homeowner was hoping to accomplish. They wanted to inject a lighter color palette with natural wood tones, bright whites, cool blues and neutrals throughout.”Plan of attack: “We started out by removing the built-in office unit, which immediately lightened up the feel within the space. The walls were given a clean, fresh coat of paint in a light gray palette — Benjamin Moore’s Silver Satin — and long white linen drapes layered with sheers were hung high to frame the tall double doors leading to the outdoor deck. A custom Roman shade was tailored for the window above the desk to complete the look.”Designer secret: “By bringing in a small 4- by 6-foot area rug to the office nook, the space is defined and sets it apart from the guest bedroom while adding cozy warmth.”Splurges and savings: “We avoided custom millwork for a new built-in office and instead brought in a mango wood storage desk and two modular bookshelves to provide additional storage and to display the homeowner’s collected art and artifacts. Also, the homeowner had a pair of shabby black nightstands and a white queen-sized bed frame. Rather than buying a new bedroom set, we gave the existing nightstands and bed frame a coat of crisp white paint to freshen them up and tie in with the new selections for the office nook.”The nitty-gritty: Desk, shelves, task lamp and chair: West Elm; rug: Pottery Barn; Roman shade: Etsy; linen drapes and hardware: Pottery Barn; sheers: West Elm; paint: Silver Satin, Benjamin MooreBudget: “$4,500 for furnishings in the guest room and office nook. $3,500 for AMG Contractors to remove the existing built-in desk/shelves, custom build bifolding closet, paint and install/assembly of the furnishings. The designer fee encompassed the entire home project and is not calculated in this breakdown.”Team involved: Miguel Arcos, AMG ContractorsSee more photos of this home
