Home Office Makeover

Refresh a home office space using furniture you already have and some paint.

The season of change can be the perfect time to refresh a space. Decorator Amy Chalmers of the popular blog Maison Decor, updated her home office using existing flea market finds and furnishings from around her home. Amy's look has always been French inspired, but she was looking for a way to merge her love of natural elements with sophisticated filigree-inspired collections.

Home Office Makeover Step 1

Paint the Walls

First, the room needed a new paint job, courtesy of Benjamin Moore French Canvas and the Wagner SMART Flow roller .

Gold is a theme in this revised space. Items were collected and sprayed gold to unify the design of the room. A gilded marble console holds an array of accessories topped with popular deer head taxidermy all displayed on a crisply painted wall. Gold, brass, reflective mirrors and shades of silver coalesce into a metallic palette that creates a rich backdrop for Amy’s hours of design work. The neutral palette keeps it all from getting too showy and overwhelming.

Light Fixture Step 1:

A sphere chandelier deemed "too masculine for the space" by Amy, was transformed using metallic copper paint. This spray job is "easy peasy" says Amy. Prep for the task by using low tack tape to hang a plastic drop cloth from the ceiling in a semi-circle.

Cupboard Interior Makeover

Amy wanted to fling open her French-painted cupboard and show off her collections for a new look. The Wagner FLEXiO paint sprayer is a brilliant way to spray the inside of anything in just minutes. Amy used Pale Gold Metallic by Fusion to add shimmering gold to this simple cupboard.
