Our favorite homes and home offices are those that clearly reflect each residents style. Decorating a home isn't the easiest of tasks and trying to incorporate everyones style makes it even harder. The most praise goes to those who merry styles in the most successful ways.
We love when elegance, romance and all out glam coincide with home tech. Maybe the reason the house came together so successfully is because it was meant to be. Shanan moved back to Toronto to buy a house and start up her new business. She ended up purchasing this house from Chris' friends who had mentioned her to him. He said he wasn't looking, but somehow the universe aligned and now they are living in the house together.
Their styles mesh so well together and create an extremely inviting space. We wouldn't mind sitting down to a full eight hours of work if our office looked like theirs. It's the perfect balance of elegant and rustic. The color palette is inspiringly soft and airy, with bright pops of colors throughout. The chandelier (by the way, isn't it awesome to have a chandelier in an office?!) was a salvage piece they found on their neighbors curb. It's a cheapo chandelier that they simply painted white!
