Home Transformation



Los Angeles, CA

The Team:

Jon Wheat, Designer


Garance Doré

The Challenge:

Transforming an extra bedroom into a home office/studio that multitasks for working, painting, meeting and relaxing.

The Solution:

Zoning and furnishing the space with a desk/work area on one side, and a seating/meeting/relaxing area on the other.

How It Came Together

Think about storage to hide clutter and pieces that serve a dual purpose: Garance's desk is actually a dining table; the media consoles can be used for storage and also serving."

— Jon Wheat, west elm LA Designer

Designer Jon Wheat
and client Garance Doré

  • Jon oriented Garance's desk toward the view + terrace, to create indoor/outdoor flow.
  • Two media consoles provide unobtrusive storage by the desk. Matching pairs help create order and symmetry.
  • Jon created a cozy seating area with a curved sofa and flexible tables, anchored by a Moroccan rug and a gallery wall of framed art.
