 Opening Statement
Yeager Properties renovated Carmel Office Suites with its signature whimsy in 2010, decorating the quirky lobby with red flocked wallpaper and columns of stacked books. The design hints at the building’s unexpected niche as a hotbed of makeover services. “It’s really a hidden treasure,” says Debbie Mikulla, one of 26 hairstylists on site. “Most office buildings don’t want the beauty industry. They don’t want the traffic, the odors, the noise, or the plumbing.”
