Sarah Robertson of Studio Dearborn created this compact desk area across from a kitchen she designed in Westchester County, New York. She color-matched the custom paint to Rockport Gray by Benjamin Moore, a peaceful hue befitting a family command center at which the homeowners manage schedules and schoolwork. The desk includes two in-drawer electrical outlets, one for charging phones and the other for a printer.
Stephanie Flemming of Flemming Interiors designed this sophisticated Chicago kitchen with gorgeous two-tone cabinets — Galveston Gray by Benjamin Moore above and rift-cut oak in a custom stain below. At the end of the 30-foot run of cabinets sits this small workstation. A marble backsplash in a herringbone pattern connects the hub to the kitchen.
