Project Title
Small Home Office Transformation
Project Description
This project is for my small home office. The selected designer will also need to select pieces for the entire curved wall that goes from the home office into the living room (the wall marked in photos).

Please focus your initial concept on the office area.

Location
Chicago, IL , United States
What's your favorite decor style?
Contemporary
What are some of the interior design brands or stores that you like to shop at?
West Elm, Crate and Barrel, CB2, IKEA. All the stores Decorilla uses.
Dimensions
10' x 9'
Photos of your room

Room Label
My Home/Small Office
I want this room to feel more masculine/feminine/neutral
Neutral
What type of sunlight does this room receive?
Mid-day light
What do you currently dislike about the room?
The room is boring. I really dislike the divider. Its a piece from our last place and we just turned it on its side to create a "divider". Our unit (with the except of our new guest bedroom from a previous Decorilla project), is a little too monochrome. We need more color or accent colors.

***Please note that our windows face south and although the sun does not face directly into our unit, we receive sunlight from the sunrise to sunset. I can add another photo with daylight if needed.
What pieces of existing furniture, lighting, art or accessories do you want to keep in the design?
None. I would love to have an modern/contemporary ergonomic desk and/or chair but at a reasonable cost. I also don't have to have this if the designer cannot find something that fits the design concept. I do not need a large desk. I need enough space for my two computers and to write. I also need to put my printer somewhere and would need a little bit of storage for my files, pens, stapler.
Are you open to changing your wall colors?
No
Are you open to changing your floor covering?
No
Attach a floor plan
Additional comments to designers
My biggest challenge is decorating the large wall next to the window. Note: The color of the wall where the desk is is called Network Gray from Sherwin Williams. The floors are medium stained hardwood. Below is my home office board for inspiration.

Home/Small Office:
Since your room gets plenty of sunlight your color options are quite broad.

For your main color, we chose to use gray because it is neutral and seen as elegant and classy. It compliments many colors such as white, blue, and yellow and works well as part of a color scheme in any room.

Use an eggshell finish paint which has a very light touch of shine (similar texture to an eggshell as implied by its name). This finish is very often used for walls and is more durable and easier to clean than matte finish
