The over-all look of this space is too modern for me (chairs, light fixture etc.) but something about it is very appealing and I keep coming back to it. I like the neutral color pallet, the wainscoting and the floating shelves. I like the neutral, braided rug. I like the plant, the little task lamp, and the sense that this is a multipurpose, family space.
DIY desk. I've been wanting a desk and chest of drawers run along my only available wall. Why not get butcher block and pick whatever size build your own cabinetry beneath? I could even build it tall, with a tall chair and a corner run. Hmmm
