Upscale Office Makeover With Modern Roller Shades from The House That Lars Built

Abigail Sawyer | 29 Nov 2017 | Roller Shades

Anyone else been binge-reading all the incredible One Room Challenge reveals from the last round? I'm dying over Making It Lovely's cozy attic office (with a secret wallpapered storage room!) Any other 90s kids out there who watched The Little Princess a million times and always dream of living in an attic?

If you haven't spent as many hours as I have pouring over these photos, you also need to check out Brittany from the Vintage Rug Shop's stunning neutral bedroom and the AH-mazing bathtub INSIDE shower stall in Sugar and Cloth's bedroom suite makeover.

But I have to say my fave is The House That Lars Built's office reveal. Looking at the before and after, you almost can't believe it's the same room.

Brittany took a makeshift workspace and turned it into an upscale office by adding wainscoting, painting the walls a soft teal and creating an incredible tumbling block pattern on the concrete floor.

Plus, we were psyched to see our dual motorized roller shades from when we decked out Brittany's studio windows a few years ago. These shades have clean white valances and are 2 fabrics in 1, so you can switch between solar shades to let in light or blackout to block it.

If I do say so myself, I think the minimalist, modern shades look pretty swell with the clean-lined furniture, white door and graphic floors. Amazing job Lars team!
