Dull Breakfast Nook Becomes His-and-Hers Home Office

Designer Harmony Weihs transformed this dull breakfast nook into two practical zones: an eating space with a great view of the outdoors, and his-and-hers office areas with distinct individual styles.

Transitional Home Office & Breakfast Nook

To make this space function for a busy, multitasking family, designer Harmony Weihs transformed the breakfast nook into two practical zones: an eat-in banquette and a his-and-hers office.

Before: Uninspiring Home Office

The home office lacked imagination and overhead lighting before designer Harmony Weihs came on board.

His-and-Hers Home Office

A his-and-hers workspace is not only practical, it allows each to have their own style. By creating two separate desks that connect in the corner, the couple can work together without competing for space or style.

Transitional Home Office With Tufted Chair

For the other workspace, designer Harmony Weihs created a custom desk using reclaimed stair spindles. An upholstered chair and glitzy wallpaper add a feminine touch.

Custom Art Atop Modern Desk

A piece of reclaimed maple was transformed into a very simple, modern desk. A custom painting by a local artist was added along with a sleek, rolling desk chair.

Transitional Breakfast Banquette With Vaulted Ceiling

Design Harmony Weihs maximized seating, space and storage by building this custom bench with drawers and pulling everything closer to the windows. The space feels relaxed and casual thanks to Roman shades and cheery throw pillows.
