Before: Office With No StyleAlmost four years ago retirees Cary and Constance Wyatt moved to their French style, 6,400-square-foot home in Pebble Beach. The couple was attracted to this resort area for its world-class golf courses and equestrian facilities, which have become increasingly more important to their lifestyle in retirement. The couple loves their home but is at a loss when it comes to their octagonal office, which is located right off the front hall and is visible from the living room. Their hope is to find a designer who can erase the clutter and create a cozy library feel for Cary, who is the main user of the room, all for a budget of $20,000.
After: Elegant Home OfficeThe Wyatts felt that Hale-Williams' design for the draperies really enhanced the windows and that the tabletop space was just perfect for Cary's needs, so that is who they went with. With a budget of $20,000, the design team of Tom Williams and Robert Hale set out to create an elegant, functional home office for retiree Cary Wyatt and his wife, Connie. The Wyatts are thrilled for many reasons: the wire management system Hale and Williams came up with; the paint on the built-ins instead of stain; the Americana art and accessories they worked in; and the drapes and flooring. The strategy of using a mixed modern design technique with Western art created an office that complements Connie and Cary's spectacular home.
