The space is not furnished like a traditional study with a desk and book cases. She likes to read and she wanted a room in her home where she could cozy up on a sofa and read. This space has french doors so she can close the doors for total privacy.
She already had the chairs and piano. I like the chairs--they are a little modern. Everything else in the room is new. All of her furniture is very traditional, and I thought it would be fun to mix it up a little and go modern. The was accomplished by the artwork and rug. I saw this rug and I loved the colors in it and I wasn't sure if she would like it. She loved it!! She surprised me when I found out that she loves color. Once I knew this, I decided her study would be the perfect place to display color. I have to tell you that the table and bowl are pieces that she found and thought they would look good in the space. She spray painted the bowl red. I had envisioned a red leather ottoman for this space but we could not find one locally. I love the pops of red in this room. This is one of my favorite rooms in her house.
