Host Brooke Channon and the design team work together to re-create the look of a sophisticated study designed by Melissa Stone.
Stone used a rich color palette, clean lines, antique style accessories and a functional layout to create this designer look.
Transforming the Makeover Room:
The design team transformed a drab home office into a stately study with the following steps:
- The transformation began by adding a rich brown tone (Benjamin Moore: Fawn) to the walls to simulate the look of the faux suede designer wall treatment in the inspiration room.
Remounted Italian Renaissance prints replaced the antique Italian engravings found in the inspiration room. The inspiration room’s 18th century Italian etchings in silver leaf frames were re-created using Irish landscape prints, a perfect pair of frames and mat boards.
