Check out our latest design project. We’ve just about completed this family room for a nice couple and their four legged children in Alexandria. When we started the room had a nice collection of traditional furnishings that had been lent to them by her mother. The pieces were of excellent quality and quite attractive but just didn’t reflect their style and personality. This is the room in the house where they spend the majority of their time and they were ready for a space that they could lounge in and relax, entertain in and really get a lot of use of.
We started with an incredibly large and deep, comfy sectional. The sectional is in a deep chocolate fabric. We contrasted the chocolate a woven fabric with shades of reds and golds for the accent pillows. The coffee table, by Stanley Furniture, is perfect for hiding remotes, blankets and games. The metal side tables with glass tops ensure the kitties will not scratch them. The swivel arm lamps allow for perfect reading light.
The large entertainment center provides plenty of storage for the dvd player, WII and games. It allows gives plenty of display space for collections of vases, glassware and books.
We chose front fold roman shades to avoid kitties and doggies from destroying draperies and to give a more casual, family room feel. They also block light for tv watching. The deep green/grey color adds contrast to the neutral walls. Finally the details, like the two sets of wall plaques in varying shades of green, red, yellows and browns adds texture and color to the neutral backdrop. All thats missing now is a couple of great pieces of art on the walls near the entertainment center and recliner that is on order from Ethan Allen for the corner.
Check it out. We’d love to hear comments…
