Blueprint for Improvement: Handsome home office in Carmel

0

THE CHALLENGE:

Built in 1992, this Carmel home is in the Valley Brook neighborhood.  Like many homes built during the ’90s, the home office is just inside the front door and is quite visible to guests. It serves as both workspace and relaxing space, with a desk and TV.  The homeowners wanted to spruce up the room with modern finishes and create more storage space.

THE SOLUTION:

  • Beautiful cherry cabinetry stained with black highlights is now the star of the room.  The bookshelves, desk and cabinetry are set in a U-shape for comfort and convenience.
  • Architectural ceiling beams and cherry wood paneling on the walls are stained to match the cabinetry.  Gold wall scones add sophistication and style.
  • The back wall now features a dry bar, with a wine refrigerator and built-in wine glass holder.
  • The updated geographic cream print wool carpet makes the space feel bigger and brighter.
