Its no surprise a geologist would request some natural elements in her study's design.
It’s no surprise a geologist would request some organic elements in her home design. And it’s no surprise that Jamie Deck and the team at Shift Interiors would fulfill that request with plenty of modern charm.The sleek and simple office incorporates both crisp, modern lines and hits of natural materials. The desk fits perfectly in this little alcove, and that’s no coincidence: it’s a custom piece, crafted from Ikea filing cabinets and a walnut slab top. The wood matches the legs of the West Elm Saddle chair, a warming element in the grey-and-white space.Treasures like rocks and fossils get the star treatment, displayed in an elegant glass box on the shelf. “Using trays and boxes to confine decorative objects is key to keeping the look clean,” says Deck.Painted stripes run from the workspace back into the bedroom (“It was an easy way to create a statement wall without using wallpaper—we did the look for less”), but it’s not the only element that ties in with the master suite. The antlers, a family heirloom, were mounted on a fabric swath that matches the bedspread.“It’s a matter of harmonizing things,” Deck says. “Objects talk to each other.” This cozy grey Saddle Office chair ($557) plays off the room’s grey, white, and wood colour palette perfectly. westelm.ca The antique bronze Industrial Task table lamp ($158) illuminates the workspace beautifully. westelm.ca Add a little texture to your desktop with the 18 Karat Weave pot ($11). 18karatstore.com
