The Need: The clients wanted to modernize their condo by creating a comfortable den/home office and by replacing a dated dual-sided fireplace with a new fireplace insert and updated mantles (See “Walnut Creek Fireplace Renovation” under Custom Cabinetry & Furniture in the portfolio).

The Solution: This cherry home office was designed with a quasi-industrial aesthetic. Tarnished metal facing on the bookshelves was juxtaposed against the colorful red casing of the bookcases which added vitality to the newly paneled cherry room. The cherry wood base cabinetry integrates wire management and provides ample storage for files and a hidden printer. “Cubbies” were created for the clients’ bills and letters while fabric covered tackboard allows the clients to post notes and photos in a convenient yet attractive location. The cherry home office, along with the new slate fireplace across the room, made this small space one of the most used rooms in the clients’ home. InHouse was also responsible for the selection of the room’s lighting.
