Transitional Design

In this cool transitional condo, designer Rachel James mixes rustic charm with contemporary furnishings for a fun collaboration of styles.

Office and Space

To keep the living space feeling more spacious and connected with the rest of the condo, the sliding barn door can be left open to expose a view of the stylish home office.

Table for Four

Just off the living room is a quaint dining area big enough for four. The bright orange chairs tie in perfectly with the vibrant hues used throughout the rest of the living area.

Touch of Glass

With so many colors and textures, it was important not to let the space become overwhelming, a task Rachel achieved by incorporating a simple glass coffee table as well as the glass dining table.

Rainbow of Colors

The colorful side table acts to bring in several colors that keep the room bright and cheery, complementing the orange throughout and introducing a larger variety of hues.

Beautiful Barn Door

The condo's new barn door looks beautiful and is a charming addition to the space, whether it's kept closed to keep the home office private or left open to expand the living space.

Smart Sliding Door

Since the client wanted to create a feeling of more space in the living area, a barn door which slides open and closed was the perfect way to connect the office and living room.

Rustic and Reclaimed

"We used reclaimed hardwood on stainless steel casters to create a rustic yet modern and industrial theme," says Rachel of the sliding barn door.

Office Hours

The peaceful home office offers a simple, clean space for work with a cool design that reflects the rest of the home. "The artwork in the office area was inspired by one of Stravinsky’s ballets," explains Rachel. "It looks to be a simple abstract, but it actually has great depth in meaning."

Homey Office

One wall of the home office utilizes the same bright orange as seen in the living room, but the sleek black sofa brings a more sophisticated touch to the space. A gorgeous cowhide rug ties the room together nicely and generates visual warmth throughout the room.

Easy Flow

A view of the living room from the home office shows just how seamlessly the two rooms connect, making the client's wish for one big living space a reality.
