Under the Stair Space

The space under the stairs always seems neglected. This design for a bookcase and office gives that unused space well deserved class! The green accent color and the carefully placed accessories keep the space from being too cluttered or boring. The addition of the open arch moldings over the desk help give the space more architectural interest.



A Schumacher velvet stripe on the wing chair brings in the green of the wall behind the bookcase but also provides a warm and cozy feeling. What a great place to escape to!

I love the bookcase! It maximizes the space usually unused under the staircase. It looks great too. This kind of design will be best accentuate with a great area rug --- it would accentuate the little details that are already on the bookcase. http://www.rugsdoneright.com has a really great selection -- and the prices even better.
