The Family Room departs from the rest of the project by being dark and cozy. Functioning as a media room for the family and game room for the kids, we wanted to keep the space comfortable but interesting. As with the other public spaces, having enough seating is key for this large family so we added swivel barrel chairs and round modern ottomans to the client’s existing smaller sectional. A modern entertainment center holds gaming gear and grounds the large television. The space is encompassed in a horsehair wallcovering in blue and black and accentuated with pops of dark orange. The grey Moroccan rug makes even the floor an inviting place to sit.
The client fell in love with a picture of a water-colored wallcovering on grasscloth that she saw in a magazine and we knew we wanted to use it somewhere. Since the powder room was larger than normal, and its a space that most guests are bound to visit, we decided to use it in there. The hand-painted treatment in grey and blue works with the scheme of the rest of the house but gives a serene experience. We offset the free flowing organic nature of the wallcovering with a strong floating vanity in grey stone and a striking linear wall sconce.
