“One of the tricks of the trade is to place large pieces in smaller spaces,” says David Connolly, a partner in W.L. Landau Ethan Allen in Hartsdale. Oversized elements—from the large schoolhouse wall clock and boldly framed photographs to the handsome black leather wing chair—not only serve to make this home office feel larger but give it a distinctly masculine edge. A dense black library chest is accented by a mix of photography-related accessories. The rug pulls together the blacks and golds used throughout the room and complements the Bryant gold painted walls.
