A made-to-order study by Kelly Deck Design gets a generous dose of style.

It’s an unfortunate fact of office life: style often suffers for the sake of storage. So when one Vancouver family asked interior designer Kelly Deck to redesign their home workspace, she knew that function was as crucial as the finishes. Glimmering gold hardware and quirky desktop accessories warm up a soft grey palette, while sleek wraparound cabinets instill order into the once-haphazard space. This creates just enough room for two workstations—one for mom, one for the kids—and a plush velvet armchair for reading. The star, of course, is the funky Sputnik chandelier and graphic wallpaper-lined ceiling—a bold design choice that paid off in grand style. “It makes the room feel more energetic,” says Deck. “It would be a lot quieter without it.” Greatspaces1
