If you can't be teeing off on the links, the next best place is sitting at your desk in this home office. Resonating with the palms trees outside, a rattan settee and bamboo roll-down blinds amplify this room's soothing, outdoor ambiance. When you're ready to push back from the desk for a break, your leather chair will give a gentle creak of contentment - but who's going to complain? Certainly not the boss.
Elegantly dramatic, this office boasts a rich diversity of textures and historic references. Ebony millwork takes its ornamentation cue from the motifs found in an antique Persian rug. Graceful arches and curves repeat across the built-in art niche, a painting that depicts a contemporary interpretation of classic architecture, and fringed draperies. Colors are dramatic and bold as if stating: business gets done here.
Quiet and tranquil, this office has pleasing simplicity and balance. A semi-circular desk rests gracefully on the square carpet - both angled to allow maximum enjoyment of the outdoor view as well as being able to keep an eye on goings on just past the French doors to the rest of the house. Files and equipment is tucked away, out of sight in cabinetry leaving only an aura of easy competence.
