Modern Luxe Office Reveal

After pondering and slowly designing my office these past couple of years, I’m thrilled to share the finished project with you today! Welcome to my Modern Luxe Office Reveal! I learned so much through my design process as I designed this home. I’m a firm believer that the key to a beautiful and timeless home aesthetic is to start with good bones. That is why all the historical homes have stood the test of time. They have fantastic bones that are always coveted. Details like understated crown moulding, large windows and tall ceilings.


The vision I had for my office was luxe modern with comfort, function and practicality in mind. A room where I feel inspired as I work. My brain is more creative when surrounded by a pretty space. The first layer and most important was the paint color I chose. Agreeable Gray by Sherwin Williams.

I painted the walls, built in cabinets and upper crown moulding all the same color. The tone on tone backdrop makes quite the statement. A beautiful mushroom “greige” that is a subtle shift from the rest of our home. A calm, warm design that allows the well appointed furnishings, lighting and accessories to stand out in harmonious

Designing with tone on tone colors does not have to be boring. I’ve added layers of texture with textiles, stone, raw wood and metals. The 12 ft ceiling gives the room a grand appearance but the true footprint is just big enough for a functional and cozy space.

My original plan was to use the built in desk as my primary work station. However, after two years of spending countless hours on my laptop looking at the wall, I was feeling a bit closed off. Those gorgeous big doors open up to the beautiful forest, just off my patio. I should be facing outward, I thought. I temporarily dragged in a small table from another room and turned my chair around to give the new set up a trial run. Game changer! I knew I always thrived on sunshine but didn’t realize that having the natural sunlight on my desk would make such a difference. From that point on, I had a plan for finally finishing my office design into a space I love and truly enjoy working in. 

Thank you to Room & Board for partnering with me by providing some pieces for this room design. This post contains affiliate links. All photos, reviews and opinions are mine. Please see full disclosure and photo policy HERE.


I reached out again to one of my favorite brands, Room & Board, to collaborate on the final pieces of my office design. I’ve had a long standing obsession with their modern line of furniture and more. I love everything I own from them, so much so that I felt confident in ordering these new pieces without seeing them in person. 

To warm up the room I added a soft layer of texture with the beautiful Anjora rug. I love that it is wool so will be durable, but is also hand sheered for a soft plush feel on my bare feet. The muted colors of grey and taupe give it that antique look. 

My new version of a desk is the Decker table which I was able to fully customize size, base color and stone option. I chose the 36″ size but it is also available in up to 60″ round. What a gorgeous dining table it would be!  I LOVE the venatino marble top paired with the graphite steel base. The perfect duo of industrial luxe.



Now I have the option of sitting at this table as my desk or I can turn my chair around and sit at the built in desk. I love the versatility.


You know I love black and steel. The Karr leather stool gives this space that edgy vibe I always want to incorporate. I can tuck it under the wall desk or the table for additional seating. The leather is so soft and nice to sit on.

I love the organic element the Nyla side table and stool bring to this space. They are skillfully hand carved in a warm wood tone. A step outside of the white oak you see throughout our home. Proof that you can mix wood tones!

Another completed room to check off my list. This one just may be my favorite. I think I say that about all of them, but aside from my bedroom and kitchen, this one gets the most of my presence. I hope you love it as well and gained some design inspiration for your home.



  1. Love the reveal! Do you have the link for your large black vase on your Room and Board table? I struggle finding good large scale vases. Thank you!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous space! Perfect balance of hard and soft – that is what I really love about all your spaces. Thank you for sharing your home and sources! And I really applaud your choice of art – I think this is more “you” than any of the wallpapers you were considering.

  3. I love the texture you have throughout the room with all of the different media. Very well done. Do you have the source for the big print of the circular art that is sitting in your built-in shelving, and the similar piece that is hung on the wall? I didn’t see either in the “additional sources” section of your blog. Thanks so much!

  4. Wow! Love this room. So clever to be able to look outside. Question?? What colour did you paint your inside doors? Black? WHite? Or combo?

  5. Stunning! And who would expect anything less?! Your style and taste is impeccable! Your chair from CB2… online it looks more brown but in your pics more dark gray. Which do you feel it is in person?


  6. Love this space and your style! Thank you so much for sharing. Can you share a source link to the art work located in the middle of the desk and over the upholstered chair? I’ve been looking for something similar to use in my entryway. Thank you!

  7. Love the reveal too! The room feels cozy and warm. One question is even though I love bookshelves with pretty vases and decors why are never used to hold books anymore? I still love having a book, feeling the pages, and being able to write on the margins, if needed.

  8. Lovely work space! We are building a home in Southern VA and following your paints/flooring/cabinets choices in some of the main areas of house.
    As for Tarte Tiered Chandelier a few reviews said it looks greenish? My open floor plans has 18ft ceiling height and would use
    2 lights at opposite ends of room (36 x 22) Thoughts?
    Again, love all your designs for creating a beautiful home

  9. Love this!! I recently started following your work and you’ve given me loads of inspiration for our home. Thank you for that!
    Do you have links for the pampas and vase? I’m struggling to find ones tall enough for floor placement.

  10. Hi Shauna! So beautiful. I am in love with the tone on tone and we are doing the same with Agreeable Gray in our new room with built-in bunks and a built-in media wall. Did you do the crown moulding and built-ins in a semi-gloss and the walls in flat or matte? I’m so confused with all of the SW paint options (Duration, Emerald, Harmony…!). Any advice you could give would be very appreciated! Thank you!

  11. Again, beautiful! What is the exact color on the walls? Also, I didn’t see a source listed for the white vases that are on the bookcase below the driftwood piece. They are so unique. Thank you! God bless!

  12. LOVE, LOVE every room in your beautiful home! Would love to do-over my office in the same color paint you used. Would you by any chance have another option for the area rug? Can’t swing the price right now in my budget. Thank you so much!
