Get free decorating advice from seven designers who created beautiful "rooms" as part of the fourth annual Design on a Dime fund-raiser, sponsored by Real Simple.
Lucas AllenA Homey Office
The Real Simple editors designed a comfortable, multifunctional space that makes getting down to work a lot less grueling. The upholstered sofette from Pottery Barn is comfortable enough for both an impromptu meeting and a quick catnap.
A rug by Madeline Weinrib complements walls painted in Blue Hydrangea by Benjamin Moore, which provided all the paint for the event. The lime green chair adds a shot of color, while smart-looking perforated metal bins hide extra office supplies.

The designers were asked to work these three items into their creations, to show how the same piece can take on many different personalities.
- Terri Crystal Lamp by Circa Lighting
- Chin Chin Trays by Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams
- Macau Chair by Ballard Designs
