We are leaning decidedly in the direction of renovating the garage—a prospect that both excites and terrifies me given that the trauma of our last remodel has yet to fully dissipate. I’ve been sketching out ideas for the garage’s exterior nip and tuck, which involves adding French doors to let in more light, and am now starting to think about the actual office space inside. If I am really, really nice to my husband, I think I can make a convincing case for splurging on Farrow & Ball Dix Blue paint for the walls. It is just one room after all. However, I don’t think I’m going to be able to justify two of these Decker Bookshelves at $998 a pop—and made of mango wood (mango wood!) and iron. But will built-ins be any less $$?
