. . .Home Office/Dining Room
As a work-from-home mom, Kuae Mattox used the dining room as her office so she could watch the kids while tending to business. The setup was hardly efficient: Every surface was covered with papers and the tools of her trades. “I would walk in and not know where to start,” says Kuae. “Finding things was like a treasure hunt.” She needed to make the space more functional as an office while reclaiming its role as a place to eat and entertain.
