2009 Idea Home: Chicago Remodel
Idea Home: We planned a private main-floor study to give Jim a dedicated space for bill-paying or listening to music. Just 8 feet wide, our retreat has a built-in bank of office-specific cabinetry and plenty of space for an Oly Studio desk and guest chair. French doors allow views of adjoining rooms but shut out noise.
Your home: Pay just as much attention to smaller, secondary rooms in the house -- in terms of placement, function, beauty and impact -- as to the rest of the home.
