Family Room

The challenge:  How to keep a two story family room from feeling like a warehouse

The result:  Consider the entire room a canvas.

You will notice that everywhere you look (even up) you will find something beautiful to look at.  It is also helpful to section off the room into functional spaces.  The colorful sectional is now a destination, with beautiful lamps for reading, colorful pillows inviting you to relax, and a tray on the ottoman ready for your drink.  Across the room is a reading area, complete with comfy chair, floor lamp and butler table.  We added two bookcases for storage and display while the staircase now houses the family’s portraits and beckons you to stop and admire them.  A large piece of art up high is now viewable not only from the first floor but also from the open staircase and second story balcony.
