Sophisticated Safari Office

A cluttered, cramped space goes semi-wild as a sophisticated safari office.

  • Oppenheim is a well-traveled man, and he wants his office to reflect his fun and adventurous side. He also has a passion for wildlife that he would like to bring into the room's new design.
  • To play up the safari theme, the walls are covered with a giraffe spots paint treatment.
  • The homeowner's friends joke that his office looks like a dorm room — there's stuff everywhere.
  • Removing the shelving from eye level visually opens up the room.
  • A sheet of Plexiglas is attached to the desktop with hinges and lined with permanent marker to make a calendar grid.
  • This faux chandelier adds a natural and architectural centerpiece in the space.
