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.
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. The geographic cream print wool carpet balances the dark tones in the wood, adding brightness.
