A Home Office That Really Clicks
It was clear this photographer and mother needed a place in the house to call her own. During an expansive home design and renovation, designer and project manager Laura Schwartz-Muller noticed that her client was always carrying her laptop around the house and could never find a spot to sit down and work. “I also noticed that she had given all of the space in the house over to everyone else. I knew she needed and deserved her own space,” Schwartz-Muller says.
Room at a Glance
What happens here: This is the home office of a photographer who specializes in ballet portraits. The room also serves as a changing room for her subjects.
Location: Calabasas, California
Size: 225 square feet (21 square meters)
Designer: Laura Schwartz-Muller of Four Point Design+Construction
BEFORE: Originally this room was the bedroom of the client’s tween daughter, but designer Laura Schwartz-Muller thought it was the right spot for the photography production office. The family’s adult son had left the nest, so Schwartz-Muller suggested moving the daughter into his old room, which she laid out with enough storage so it could serve as both playroom and bedroom.
