My clients called me in to assist them with their basement renovation. This space was originally the garage and had been converted to a guest bedroom. When we discussed options for this area in the home, both homeowner’s expressed a need for a retreat within their house. The husband wanted an office he could work from during the day and the wife wanted a retreat for where she could practice yoga. The end result is a combination of both of their desires. There is a TV set that pulls out from the side of the stone wall, that allows them to entertain or watch movies, but it also tucks away. The shelving, on both sides of the stone wall, allows them to stash office supplies, stereo equipment and yoga weights from view. The triple barn door wall adds visual interest. The double barn door section conceals the utility area and the electric panel from the rest of the space.
The above image highlights a wall where I used the client’s historical product photographs. The wall is located just outside of the conference room and showcases the product development over the years. 5o black and white images were placed in white frames and arranged on the wall.
The above image shows the new office systems that Nest Designs selected all the finish materials for. Since the client forecast a need to move various offices within the building, it was important to select a color scheme that would work with existing office divides and future office systems. The below image shows the tiles Nest Designs selected for the restrooms. Running the over-sized tile planks vertically helps to make the bathroom feel taller. Photos by Bealer Photographic Arts.
