Robin's Egg Blue Office

A beige, under-used room gets a new life as a robin's egg blue, sophisticated and functional home office.

After: Business Savvy

With a chocolate brown/robin's egg blue color palette taken from Rusin's business card, the home office now looks sleek, sophisticated and feminine. A built-in desk with large cabinets provides plenty of space for work and storage. Two new chairs and table create a seating area that fits the scale of the space. Everything about this office sets a professional, pulled-together tone.
