    Blake's office was updated for Season 5 rather nicely. But once Cecil kicked-off at the beginning of Season 3 and his paneled ColbyCo office was painted for Jeff and then updated for Alexis, the office remained unchanged.

    Should it have been, or made to be, much more elaborate than it was?

    Oh yes! For sure! I couldn't believe that Alexis would have such a drab beige office. Only I see it much more monochrome art deco. Black lacquered furniture. Deco screens, a tiger skin rug and a floating fireplace. Really stupidly excessive in an '80s deco way. No beige or pastels. Harsh black and white with maybe touches of red or purple.

    Imagine these in colour.

    And maybe Alexis needed a staircase and bedroom in her office. Abby did on Knots Landing and that was fabulous. She out bitched everyone with that.

    Yes! Huge a huge Dali over her fireplace. And a tiger skin rug in front of it.

    That's what I wanted for the penthouse.
    Absolutely!

    I did too, but her office could have been an extension of that. Her style, only harder and no nonsense. The penthouse a little more feminine.

    Yes, they tried to go deco for her apartment, but it was so tame it was ..... tame.

    And, of course, her secret safe room behind her office desk:

    Looking at that first picture, I think the sand-brown carpet matches the desk, you know, for the complete "savage" look. But it's the walls that I don't like, especially those blank panels with nothing on it, not even Cecil's picture.
    I'm not a fan of pink, but I like violet and lilac.

    I also love rooms with water in it, so how about a beautiful aquarium? That could enhance the flora & fauna theme of the desk and carpet.

    Two big sculptures, left and right where those boring plants are:

    Oh and that tacky IKEA door has to go. It should be black & gold, perhaps with heavy, velvet violet drapery.

    A clock window, naturally.

    (ignore that awful furniture)

    That's all!:)

    I think there should have been more art in her office (and definitely in the penthouse) but I like the white color scheme - it won't clash with anything she wears and ensures she's the center of attention.

    Didn't we once discuss (prior to the 9/2016 site meltdown) that perhaps Alexis' penthouse should have been atop the ColbyCo building instead of at another location (like the Longford in Los Angeles they used as the establishing shots of her Denver apartment)?

    There should've been an office catfight where they fall through her glass desk. Maybe one of the characters involved (Leslie?) could get impaled on one of the furnishings in the office.

    According to the bible of season 5, Alexis and Dominique's competition was to escalate into a catfight at some point. It's a shame it didn't happen then rather than in season 7 where their catfight came out of the blue.

    As to answer the question "Should Alexis' ColbyCo office have been more garish?", yes it should. Mid season 6, when Alexis started her vendetta against Blake, would have been the perfect moment. After all, the first time we saw Alexis' office was during the first time she tried to destroy Blake (by merging their companies). Maybe another update should have occured during season 9.

    Yes, I read that on a French website (translated horribly by Google) that Alexis and Dominique were going to have have a catfight in Alexis' office, and Steven was supposed to separate them.

    Agreed on both accounts.

    That reminds me of when Amanda Woodward walked into her office to find an employee had hung himself.

    Actually, that was her boss who she double-crossed, which was probably the worst thing Amanda did, imho.



    Of course, always one to re-use actors, Aaron then hired Stanley Kamel to play mafia boss Tony Marchette on Beverly Hills 90210, Toni Marchette's father and later Dylan's ill-fated wife who got shot and killed on their wedding day after Tony put out a hit for Dylan. Of course, after accidentally killing his own daughter, Tony committed suicide. Sense a theme?

    Honestly, I feel Alexis would be the type to update her office every year, to increasingly over-the-top results. Although, not sure how you can surpass elephant tusks....
