Patrick Cronin has lived in his dream home — a charming 1950s fixer-upper — for a while now. A few years ago he rebuilt the 1,800-square-foot seaside cottage from the ground up, adding a second story plus a third bedroom and bath. With the exterior and structural work complete, Cronin is now ready to begin decorating the inside and would welcome the help of a professional in designing the room where he spends a lot of time — his home office. Which designer will he choose for the project?
After reviewing all the plans at length, Cronin decides to go with Annette Davis, whose plan creatively functions as a den, an office and a guest room. A white-walled spare bedroom is now an elegant yet casual, tropical-flavored multifunctional room perfect for him to work, relax and entertain in. A large built-in creates a perfect desk for computer work complete with plenty of storage and filing space. One cabinet also houses his television, which can be closed away and hidden when not in use. A moss green sleeper sofa and a leather recliner allow for easy transformation from office to den, and color is brought in through the light painted walls, tropical fabrics and a simple area rug. Bamboo accents add warmth and flavor to the room while an antique secretary and bike, two of Cronin's most sentimental pieces, are used to add character to the room and make it his own.
