This home office, located just off the kitchen, acts as a control center for the family. Kids work on computers in open spaces, not in their rooms. The window seat is a sunbrella velvet for durability and the chairs swivel to ‘talk’ with the kitchen.
A beautiful but cold and austere stone manor house was all formal faded elegance but no modern amenity. Family functionality was relegated to the former service areas of bygone eras – an old style kitchen and former living areas.
