Fresh and modern granny office makeover

There’s always room for better and there’s always hope. We have a great example to illustrate that. This office belongs to a grandma. The same as the rest of the house, the office had some great elements but it also had that grandma look. The colors were not fresh or fun at all and there were also several other things that only a grandma would have.

As it always happens, it came a time when the office became too old, even for a grandmother. As a result, it had to be renovated. The project was quite simple and it shows how some fresh colors and simple organization and renovation techniques you can create a really modern and beautiful décor. The office is almost unrecognizable. It looks fresh and modern and the transformation was impressive.

First the gingerbread trim had to be taken off the bookshelves. Beneath those the furniture had simple and modern lines, perfect for the new look. The unit also got a new look. It got a fresh coat of white paint that turned out to be the perfect choice for the neutral color palette.


The walls have also been painted white. Because the walls and the furniture were now all white, this allowed the decorators to introduce some pops of color here and there. The knobs have also been replaced with satin nickel egg shaped ones and this really brightened up the atmosphere. The bookshelves looked really nice in white but it was a little overwhelming so the back was painted green. This way the décor is both colorful and fresh.{found on apartmenttherapy}.
