office-den-before Before: Despite being filled with exercise equipment, this home office/gym/storage room is not working out. See the after picture.

Just a few months after having their first child, Jaime and Kyle bought their dream house in their dream neighborhood. Settling into family life as new parents was great, but soon Jaime had to get back to work. The problem was that she works from home, and her office was situated on their third floor in a huge space that doubled as a gym and display area for the memorabilia from Kyle’s days as a professional rugby player.

The open-concept room had tons of potential, but wasn’t working on any level. Jaime wanted a workspace that was comfortable and motivating; Kyle wanted a masculine workout area; and they both wanted to incorporate a lounge space for the whole family. So I grabbed my own team and got set to get this space back in the game – stylishly and beautifully.
