Hide CaptionShow CaptionThis homeowner needs more workspace in his office and lots of color to add energy.
Ian's home office is the last room for him to tackle in his otherwise beautifully decorated, open-concept loft. He lives downtown and has frequent visitors, so he needs this space to serve a dual function as both office and guest bedroom. He would love to create a library feel, but has no idea which colors will help him achieve the effect, while still being welcoming and comfortable for guests.

Ian works full-time in his open loft office with stark white walls. He likes the concrete ceiling but wants to add color to the walls and change the worn carpet. His desk is tidy now, but normally he doesn't have enough workspace. As a kid, Ian spent his summers in Scotland, where his grandmother instilled in him a love for Scotland and all things Scottish. He'd like to bring a Scottish feel to his workplace.
