T

racy Hardenburg knew she needed to work from home–with four kids, it was the only way to go. But after years of working from her dining room table, this high-end designer needed a space more suited to her job description. After a lengthy search, she and her husband finally found a historic home with a rear sunroom that had its own entrance. “It was ridiculously perfect,” she says.

Hardenburg didn’t mind that the 1938 house was much smaller than the previous home of her family of six–she loved its gracious proportions and all the potential it offered, so she took out her sketchbook and went to work.

The transformed home has its own office wing, complete with a bathroom and coffee bar. And Hardenburg made sure the rest of the home was ready for entertaining at a moment’s notice, with lounging porches front and back, a new pool and spa, and a billiards room that replaced the formal living room. “I love to play, so I want everyone to go have drinks somewhere,” she says. “I want that California vibe–that relaxed, cool feel.” Mission accomplished.
