I absolutely love traditional dark wood paneled studies that you typically see in old country homes. However fast-forward to 2018, and this is my take on the traditional country study.
I wanted to get a similar look and feel but with much lighter colors, so as to not darken the room too much, and obviously on a much smaller budget!
The study was actually a small dining room before, with very bland features. Cream walls, cream curtains, white ceiling and white beams, and a light maple floor. There were no redeeming features about it, other than the large windows, which were covered by the heavy valances and curtains, and double height sloping ceiling with beams. Everything had to go.
