Study & Casita

Study in Flexibility
The study and casita give Dream Home’s new owner plenty of flexibility. Combined, the suite can be a two-room home office with its own bathroom and exterior entrance. “It can be a great home office,” Villanueva says.


She staged the room with its own entry as a guest bedroom. “It’s a destination space, with almost a cabana feeling,” she says. She’s brought in a distressed wood canopy bed with polished nickel accents, an accent chair, and natural gemstones and minerals showcased in the art and accessories.

Villanueva staged the study, separated from the casita by a hidden door in the built-in cabinetry, with a floating desk in the middle of the room, fashioned of rift-cut white oak and an invisible acrylic leg. “We had it fabricated for the house,” she says. The built-in white oak credenza includes an emerald quartzite countertop.
