After the makeover, rich red on the back wall of the office ties it into the red all over the living room walls and ceiling. A painted door hidden in the basement was the inspiration for the color scheme and is now displayed prominently. Copper pillows and gold accents blend in beautifully.

The vibrant red walls and the airy curtains now combine with the chairs and simple accessories to make the window area more interesting.

The same red and the same gold accents used throughout the makeover keep this area connected to the other spaces and create a warm welcome for visitors.
