Progress Lighting: How do you create a productive, inspiring work space for home offices?
Michelle: First, we focus on the desk to provide a functional working surface, and the second is storage. We love designing built-ins as a backdrop of the office, which provides additional storage and surface space for printers and such.
Progress Lighting: What fabrics, colors or textures are popular to incorporate in a home office?
Michelle: Micamy Design Studio’s principal has been a commercial interior designer for over 20 years and has designed thousands of square feet for office tenants. This helps us design out-of-the-box home offices. We like specifying reflective surfaces, which helps make the space feel larger.

Progress Lighting: What about lighting for the home office? How do you make sure the space looks great – but there is enough light where you need it for computer time, sketching, reading, etc.?
Michelle: We love using a statement chandelier in the office above a stately desk. Designer tip: we usually angle the desk towards the natural light from the windows for optimal lighting.
Progress Lighting: What are some ways you can quickly update a home office?
Michelle: Adding a built-in is the quickest way to really elevate your home office, whether it’s a built-in desk, or freestanding shelves!
