Mallika Malhotra needed a home studio with options. “She does photo shoots for female entrepreneurs and wanted an adaptable space,” says designer Samantha Pappas. “Everything in here is meant to be moved easily to allow for multiple configurations.” Samantha added brass castors to Mallika’s desk and in lieu of a coffee table chose three white oak stools. Their shape and weight allows them to be clustered, parted, or removed entirely. Subtle blush tones provide an air of femininity, while two pieces by Cape Elizabeth artist Laurie Fisher keep the mood funky and unpredictable. We’re particular fans of the trimless doorways. “Clean drywall returns help maintain the simplistic feel we’re going for,” says Samantha.
