As the owners and founders of experiential marketing agency Envy Create, the Wylies are very attuned to forward-thinking design. So when I worked with them to convert an unfinished space above their garage to a home office, I knew the design needed to reflect their taste. A dramatic, dark color palette echoes the look and feel of Envy’s brand, with walls covered in Phillip Jeffries Black Mamba wallcovering and custom cerused pewter-finish flooring. For comfort, we custom designed a window seat made of walnut and faux velvet chanel tufting, one of my favorite design elements for a sophisticated feel. The adjacent bathroom is equally dramatic with black shiplap walls, handmade cement floors, and a custom walnut vanity. And, rather than a traditional handrail at the stairs, we designed a custom steel and walnut shelving unit.
